4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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’

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.

4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A very satifying, full-bodied stout, thick in texture, almost as black as guinness, with a soft efervescent umber-tinged head.
Strong earthy and roasted flavours combine with subtle smokiness then all three flavour attributes linger in the mouth between sips.
A thickish mouthfeel makes the stout all the more rewarding.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle endorsed by and bought from Kris Wines, London. A very dense dark coloured pour with little in the way of a head. Nose was very promising, sweetish and fruity with a touch of roast. Fullish, smooth mouthfeel. Similar qualities in the flavour with tasty dark chocolate notes and a lingering slightly bitter finish. Can’t fault it.. Jamaica ? Nah she wanted a swig.....

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.

A Mes rate: gravicask at Ealing beer festival.
Completely black with a thin bubbly head. Big and fruity with loads of chocolate and some vanilla, liquorice and slight spice. Thick and juicy.Nice and dry but fruity and sweet at the same time. Big chocolate finish. Tasty stuff indeed. (Crap rate, I’m sorry.)

Cask (gravity dispense) at Ealing Beer Festival, July 2009. Very dark. No head but decent condition. Creamy, roast malt aroma. Some quite bitter chocolate on the palate. Light bitterness on the finish. Strong coffee develops. Not quite sure what makes this Jamaican but it’s a very nice beer.

Bottled. A black beer with a dark brown head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and chocolate. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of roasted malt and chocolate, leading to a dry and roasted finish.

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.
