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.

Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. Exploded out of the bottle and almost all of it ended up on the floor! Afterwards it is hazy black-brown in colour with no head. It has a rich chocolate and rum flavour followed by coffee, red fruit and spices on the smooth chocolate finish. Very good.

Bottle from beerhive. I'm going to have to try this again as a re-rate as this bottle was a total gusher.

Bottle.Black and a bit lively upon opening. After this it was all plane sailing. Lovely smooth and creamy flavour means that this is a delicious stout. the only thing that irritates me about this brewery is that there is no deScription of the beer on its label. In this case it should just say ’fantastic’

Black, moderately thick off white head; tropical fruit aroma; lighter than the average stout; hoppy; tastes like a black IPA to me; good stuff.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2012
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.

yngwie (16423) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2012
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
