Keg @ Knott Bar, Manchester. 7.2% (same as the bottled version). Black with a thin off-white head. Has a sweetened roasted malt in aroma and taste. It doesn’t feel its strength and has an underlying milkiness.

Garrold (2152) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2014
Tap at Cross Scythes, Sheffield. Just about black. Tan, thin, lasting head. Dark fruit chocolate truffle. Vanilla. Sweet, ripe, dark fruit. Hint of roast coffee. Taste is fruitcake sweet. Then a big roast dryness. Roast bitterness at the end. Sweetness remains in the background, though. A light saltiness in there, too. Long, dark chocolate, bitter finish. And all at £4 a pint!! Beautiful.

Craft Clerkenwell. Cask. 7.2%. Opaque black - brown beer with a small pale tan head. Smooth palate, modest carbonation. Smooth but rich dark malts. Little dark chocolate, not sweet. Whisper of coffee bitterness. Maltesers - not sweet! Whisper of nuts and tropical fruits. Finishes light. Pretty tasty.

Scopey (8089) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2013
Keg at Maltings, York. It pours near black with a thick tan head. The nose is coffee, roasted malt, chocolate, earth and a touch of cabbage. The taste is rich roasted malt, coffee, earth, burnt notes, moderate bitterness and a touch of cocoa with a dry, bitter finish. Medium-full body and moderate carbonation. Flavoursome. A tasty stout indeed.

Keg, poured a deep black with a thick tan head. Aroma of roast malt and chocolate. Medium body, flavour as the aroma with some dark fruits in there too. Seemed a bit watery for the strength/style, but not bad.

[keg at the Hanging Bat, Edinburgh] Pours deep, murky black with pretty much zero head. The aroma is coffee and some rum sweetness. On the taste – coffee dominates, there’s some wood in there, and then moderate alcohol burn. Unfortunately it’s totally flat and lifeless, and tastes overwhelmingly of cold coffee, with the faint woodiness, it’s like the washings from an old cask. There’s a good beer in there somewhere, but unfortunately I wasn’t finding it [28012013]
