Black pour, medium off-white milkshake head. Aroma is lightly roasty but overall sort of faint. Flavor is sweet and roasty, with a very smooth and creamy mouthfeel.

On tap into a dimpled mug. Very dark brown with a dense, creamy tan head. Looks delicious. Aroma is roasted malts with some coffee and chocolate notes. Flavor is the same, roasty with coffee and chocolate. Palate is where this really shines - extremely smooth and creamy. Overall a very nice stout.

From notes. First reviewed 2/1/2011. Served on tap in a pint glass at Fountainhead. The appearance on this stout is awesome. It comes out with a perfectly elegant tan cap that made me question whether it was a nitro tap. It looks as creamy as Guinness (nitro) without anything synthetic added. The color is dark brown all the way through. Smooth, roasted malt, mild roasted brewed coffee, and dark chocolate all waft into my nose. The roast flavors in the malt builds to a bitterness, eventually revealing a coffee flavor. Milky cocoa, and lightly bitter spicy hops blend well with the coffee flavors. The mouthfeel is velvety smooth; I should have been able to guess just from the appearance. The carbonation contributes to this ultimate creaminess. Medium to full body to wrap everything up. This is most likely the most drinkable English Stout I have ever had. Very smooth, amazing looking, and with a very pleasant taste. This is a great 7% sipper.

Pours dark dark brown with a perfect nitro tan head. Aroma is nitro gas, bitter chocolate, caramel, some toffee. Taste is smoky chocolate, leather, an toasted caramel. Body is medium/heavy, silky creamy smooth, nitro carb, long lush finish. Overall, delicious. A very manly beer.

Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2012
Keg at Ma Camerons, Aberdeen. Pours clear brown with a paper-smooth, creamy head. Subtle, roasty cocoa in the aroma. Light sweet flavor, modest roast, tobacco, milk chocolate. Light bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Sweet, lightly dry finish, some dark bread and mild cocoa. It’s an easy-drinking beer, just not much more than that.

ADfan (539) - Orange County, California, USA - NOV 12, 2011
Black in the glass witha medium size head. Aroma has a slight cocoa to it but not much else. The beer has an extremely smooth texture to it. The flavor has some coffee and a toastiness to it. Nothing overpowering and wish it had a stronger flavor to it.

On tap at Bad Apple in Chicago. It tastes strong but has a warm delicious malty and full bodied quality. I’d like to have this one again.
