Dark Brown with small light Brown foam ring. Aroma is not too strong, toffee. Taste is a stout, but not too extreme, bit weak. Aftertaste is long lasting. (Velp 201311)

Roasted malt, quite chocolatey with a hint of fruit coming through - really enjoyable beer.

Cask @ The Old Manor, Bracknell. Black coloured with a small rather dense brown head. Strong mokka roasted malty with an almost whiskey smokey hinted aroma with some vanilla sweet hints. Medium to full light creamy hinted palate. FInish is rather sweet, short herby noted but with a lack of biterness and roasted matls. Little dry older (dusty) ending. Quite a surprise, good aroma, no taste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
50cl bottle from the brewery. A slightly hazy pour, cola-brown in colour with a ring of translucent head; aroma of deeply roasted malts and drinking chocolate; the taste is sweet, with well-done toast, chocolate milkshake, and some raspberry fruit; the finish is dry, soft and fruity. Very good indeed.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at CP&K. It pours very dark brown with a small beige head. The nose is roasted malt, light smoke, charcoal, earth, iodine and peat-like notes. The taste is roasted malt, caramel, toast, light charcoal, dark fruit and light vanilla with a dry, roasty finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Easy going and pretty mellow. Decent

Cask/gravity at the Twickenham Beer Festival 2012, black-brown with a coarse tan head, pear drops and chocolate on the nose, roasty malt, coffee and pear in the body, and a ginger and burnt bitter finish (and no, this didn’t appear to be the ginger version). Delicious!

A nice sweet stout, which gives what is expected. I would have hoped for a touch more...it’s just missing something.

Bottled. A black beer with a short-lived tan coloured head. An excellent roasty smoky stout. Great burnt malts in the mouth. Very smooth. The roasty malts linger with a kick of coffee. Chocolate makes appearances also. Very tasty and well brewed.
