Nitro draft at Fermentation. Deep brown pour with a creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and light smoke. Flavor of tart dark fruits, smoke, chocolate and roast. Light bodied with a quick smoky finish.

rarbring (1959) - LinkŲping, SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2012
Aroma: A dry smell, burned wood, roasted malt. Not very distinct.
Appearance: The beer is black with a red hue, a tan firm head, little lacing and some curtains.
Taste: Good chocolate sweetness, a fruity sweet freshness, slightly smokey.
Palate: Little carbonation, soft and smooth, a fresh feeling with a light dry finish.
Overall: A nice *porter*, not the stoutish dryness.
Note: On-tap at De Klomp. Reviewed 2012-01-07.

This beer was just ok it looked the part of a stout but it had an alcohol flavor that overpowers the beer

Tap @ Pazzeria, Milan. Very dark brown colour, big foamy head. Coffee malt aroma. Liquorice flavour. Sour aftertaste. Not my sort of beer.

[Keg at the Hill House, Happisburgh, Norfolk] Astonished to find this in a remote coastal village in Norfolk - Iíve never seen it anywhere else, how on earth did it get here?! Pours brown-black with a large beige head. Thereís lots of plum and smoke, some smooth chocolate. All the ingredients for a decent beer are there, and itís surprisingly full of flavour for keg, but somehow the flavours didnít quite work out together for me. Donít know why, but I didnít like it, even though I felt I should have. Sorry.

Replacement for my infected Left Hand 3400 Pound Monkey :(. Actually a very good stout, just not really too appropriate for the dog days of Japanese summer. Rich, creamy medium roastiness. Well put together and good flavour projection for an otherwise typical macro beer. Pretty darn good - for winter...

Drake (11156) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 3, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2013 Served on nitro at Beer Run. Pours a clear dark brown color with a medium sized frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of sweet malts, roasted malts, caramel and chocolate. The taste is roasted malts, chocolate, cocoa and mild bitter hops. Medium bodied. Nice. 50th Scottish rating!

At first i thought oh no just another guinness but oh no this is not that at all if i had to compare it Iíd say its s similar to a Youngs double chocolate but with more flavor. Perfect head. Great depth. One of my favorites if not my favorite stout.
