Great Newsome Liquorice Stout 50cl

Taking its name from the men who dug Liquorice root from the ground by hand and inspired by Robert Copley, who is bringing liquorice back to Pontefract. This stout has heady aromas of Pontefract Cakes and a depth of flavour from a rich roast malt background. In the World Beer Awards 2015, the family run craft brewery has taken a Gold Medal for its 'Liquorice Lads Stout' following success in previous years with Frothingham Best. Pours a lovely deep, dark brown, it was almost Jet Black. The head is a tanned affair that tries to stay the distance. The nose and taste nicely roasted, but not burnt malts and less liquorice in flavour than the name suggests. Mild chocolate and coffee hints came through just as strongly as the liquorice notes. The body depth was fine, certainly smooth and full.
