A 500ml bottle with a BB of Nov 2013, so it's well out of date. Picked up a while back from Trembling Madness in York. Hopefully still in good condition. The label calls it a classic stout.

Poured into a tulip pint glass. Bottle conditioned. A dark reddish-brown hue that appears pitch black in the glass. Yields a small head of frothy beige foam that hangs aorund for a few minutes before reducing to a patchy surface layer. Aroma of intense roasted malt with hints of coffee, burnt grain, molasses, mild cocoa, faint caramel, a twinge of smokiness and earthy yeast. Slightly sweet and satisfyingly rich - very nice.

Tastes of roasted malt with a powerful bitter finish. Notes of roasted coffee, burnt grain, dark malt, molasses, subtle cocoa, earthy yeast, faint smoke and stewed leaves. A whisper of sourness in the background. Well-attenuated, followed by a strident, malt-driven bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth and lightly tingly, with soft carbonation and a rather insubstantial body for the style. Pretty astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of bitter roasted malt, coffee and earthy yeast.

Rather nice - perhaps a bit past its best but still good. Uninspired looks; shame the head doesn't hang around. The aroma and flavour are rich and roasty - plenty of dark malt and coffee notes in evidence. So-so body, could be a shade thicker. A solid brew that is proably marred by being kept too long - serves me right for hiding beers away. Goes down nicely; if you like stouts then this is a brew for you. Worth sampling if you come across it.

Very dark brown. Thick beige head which quickly settles.
Light chocolate malt aroma.
Tastes of burnt toast. Rather harsh astringency.
Moderate feel.
Smells and looks much better than it tastes.

This stout ale pours a deep brown-tinted black, with a thick creamy latte head. Aromas of burnt roast coffee, malty molasses, prunes, and a hint of smoke. It is gently sweet & sour, with a moderate bitterness.

Had at an tasting evening with friends, we went through the entire range of buxtons
