Black colour, moderate tan head. Nice and straightforward roasty aroma and flavour, not too sweet, with notes of dark chocolate, coffee and liquorice, a fruity hint of prunes, decent bittering hops.

Very special. The most perfect standard stout I’ve ever had. Thick, syrupy and really tasty. Really moorish.

Simply amazing. No gimmicks just powerful well made beer. Wonderful dark chocolate and coffee flavours. One for the end of the night.

Whoa, this is good, very good. Don't normally associate Newbarns with stuff from the darkside so this was a very pleasant surprise indeed.

This proves that if you stick to the basic ingredients and brew them well, you can produce something special. Rich oily, black treacle, sweet and strong stout, with a cracking roasty coffee bitterness; beautiful.

Roasty! Dark, hints of coffee and dark chocolate. But mainly rich, malty, roast stout.

Hell yeah, thats a rock and roll stout if I’ve ever had one. You can tell it will be good just from the colour in the head! Super roasty, dark chocolate, coffee, prune, brown sugar, treacle. What a treat - will definitely seek out again!
