Draft at Churchkey. Not sure about licorice or cranberry in this keg? Rich, dark black pour with a dense, thick beige head. Nose is gorgeous, Beautiful bitter roasted malt, dark chocolate, hints of cherry, touches of anise, plum, cocoa powder. Just really good. I’m jamming on this shit right now. Velvety and smooth, but dry on the finish. All about it.

Bottle. Black with a medium head. Hoppy with plenty of body.More like a black IPA than a stout. Superb.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg at opening of the new Brewdog bar in Shepherd’s Bush. Short review due to session. Black with a foamy tan head. Smell - chemical/crayon, chocolate, citrus. Body is medium to big. Taste - is smoke and tar to start, chocolatey, finish is lots of citrus - orange and kiwi (the flavour isn’t obviously cranberry, but it is definitely fruity). Alcohol is present but doesn’t seem 10%. Unusual stout bordering on a double black IPA. Drinkability is low and it comes across as a bit harsh. Good though.

Bottle, bought @ Mikkeller and Friends, Cph. Pours deep black with a firm, creamy, beige head. Aroma has liqourice, cranberry, roasted, light vinious. Light salty. Medium carbonation, fine dry and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of roasted malts, dark chocolate, lots of liqourice with a salty edge. Vinious and quite dry and warming finish. Lovely.

Bottle. Pours black with a relatively small tan head. Aromas of roasted dark chocolate, licorice as well as a sweetness that leads to a smell reminding me of a redskin lolly! Taste leads off where the nose finished with dark chocolate, licorice and a slight sweetness, Full mouthfeel carries it wonderfully.

Tap. Pours deep brown with a small, lacing, tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and licorice, Sweet flavor that ends up more dry, with a touch of alcohol and with bitter notes. Medium bodied, oily to creamy text. and flat carb. Very nice indeed.

Tap at Old Coffee House. My god this looks the goods. After drinking mainly pales and easy going stuff all day this one really hits the mark. Black pour with a small, firm light tan head leaving incredible lacing. Nose doesn’t live up to its looks with heavy roast and liquorice. Has an odd savoury berry note to it as well but overall it’s a little subdued. Taste picks up with absolutely tons of liquorice, aniseed notes with light pine driven hops. Some nutty undertones with an earthy, chocolate biscuit note to carry on the finish. Liquorice is big but doesn’t overwhelm. Smooth and creamy goes the palate hiding the alcohol superbly. Damn fine beer

Black coloured with a light brown head. Medium duration. Roasted, dark aroma, sweetness too. Flavor is sweet, some hot notes too, cranberries?
Creamy, syrupy texture.
