Cask @ King William IV. The pour’s deep brown with a medium creamy white head. The nose is light spice, pepper, roasted malts, chocolate iced carrot cake. The taste is more semi-bitter chocolate, charred malts, smooth cake icing and mild allspice. Medium body, supple, smooth. Nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask conditioned handpump Old Coffee House London 23/11/12. A black beer with a little tan coloured head. A great hoppy stout with tons of coffee in both the mouth and aroma. Great flavours and lovely hops. A delicious beer which is more akin to a coffee IPA for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. A very dark brown beer topped by a small, tan head. Sourish, almost vinegarish aroma with roasted malts and raisins. Acidic, lightly citrus peel-ish flavor with roasted malts, vinegar, rasisins, tobacco hints and some brown sugar. Medium bodied, dry. Roasted and bitter finish. A beer gone sour, in a quite pleasant way. Would be interesting to have a perfect sample once. 111229

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle. Dark amber body with a moderate sized beige head. Aroma of mocha, coffee, roast, some pipe tobacco with some sour notes. Flavor is malt, coffee, chocolate and some kind of sour, harsh bitterness. Thin body. Drinkable, but I think this must be a bit off.

Bottled, from the brewpub. Black, minimal head. Rich coffee aroma. Dry wih medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Leather and coffee - lots of coffee. Salty finish. I like the concentrated heavily roasty coffee flavours.
