weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2014
Cask at the NWAF 2012, Manchester. Almost black, thinish pale tan head. Aroma is quite sweet, licorice, some fruit. Flavour is decent, just didn’t wow me over all. It was up against some stiff competition from a heavy stout binge at the time.

gegwilson (1286) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2014
Bottle from the beer and wine shop in York. Pours black with a tan head. A nice, quite rich stout. Some good coffee and roasty notes. A bitter finish that is quite hoppy for the style. Good but not spectacular.

AdiBeer (1372) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2014
Aroma: toasted and roasted malts, hints of salty smoke. Appearance: dark brown, clear, no head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: smoky flavours, roasted malts, maybe some black coffee, bitters getting medium intense, long-finish. Overall: decent, palate could do with more complexity. Pint at the London Drinker Beer & Cider Festival.

Monkeyharris (11) - - JAN 28, 2014
Bottle from Rythm & Booze, Mapplewell, Barnsley. Black with a dark red speckle of light showing through.Light tan head that sticks around. Quite thin and fizzy. The nose is coffee, biscuits, dark malts, blackberries and dark fruits, vanilla, oak. Taste is surprisingly sweet at the start finishing bitter with a rum spirit aftertaste. Vanilla is noticeable along with smoke, charcoal and roasted malt. Coffee and dark fruits are lost. Reminds me of Innis & Gunn Rum Cask, just a darker "stouty" version. On my doorstep this is a good reliable stout, however there are others that are better and are as accessible and readily available.

kwik-lime (1346) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2013
Decent balance, some smoke, toffee, coffee and chocolate. Smooth mouthful, drinkable, though hardly complex or strong enough to really earn the imperial moniker.
