Details

Ilkley Brewery's The Hanging Stone is a new part of their core range and as an Oatmeal Stout it proudly takes its place as the brewery's perennial dark ale. Pouring a dark brown colour, its notes of chocolate, coffee and a roasty-smokey maltiness which are prominent on the nose. Presenting much of the same as what's perceived on the nose, the palate also has a bit of caramel that is balanced by a roasted coffee bitterness. Its medium body is noted by its creamy mouthfeel whilst the beer, overall, finishes quite dry. For as bold as it looks it's actually quite sessionable. Trust us, this is a nice one.

Nice dark colour. Easy drinking. Solid stout from a good brewery. Better examples out there, but this is decent purchase.

I put in a large mixed order for me and friends for the Ryder cup weekend and this was one of the beers I chose. I like stouts for a change and chose this from one of my favourite breweries. Well I was disappointed, you can tell it's a stout, has all the colour, yes the flavours are there that you would expect, but it wasn't deep enough in flavour and came across as a bit "thin". To be honest I struggled to finish the 500ml bottle, but it's not quite as bad as a one star beer, at least I've tried it and will not be ordering again.

Not really a huge fan of stouts in general, but this is a real good one. Not too heavy, very drinkable and refreshing. Crisp and creamy. Would recommend.

Coffee and chocolate in a stout - my idea of near heaven. I love this oatmeal stout, it's tasty and filling. Who needs supper when a couple of bottles of this will fill you nicely! Only 4 stars cos there was only one bottle in the case! I'm sure it's worthy of 5
Good solid stout

Looks great, jet black in colour with a creamy head that lasted right down the glass. It has the chocolate and coffee flavours you would expect in a good stout, not overpowering but solidly present.
Ilkley do it again :)

A lovely sessionable stout to while away the long dark evenings! However, although supposedly part of Ilkley's core range it is a shame that it is so difficult to get hold of :(
