Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 2, 2014
Dark brown, thin head. Aroma is pretty intense for a stout of this size in its roasty richness. Body is soft, with nice sweet chocolate, hints of nuts, little bit of hop

Scopey (12720) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2014
Bottle thanks to Dave.it pours darkest brown with a small tan head. The nose is rich, chocolate, treacle, coffee, some roast and oiliness. The taste is roasted malt, toast, coffee, earth, some acidity, pepper and light bitterness. Lightish body and moderate carbonation. Smells rather nice, but unfortunately a bit thin for my liking. Decent enough though.
