Cask at Hanging Bat. Deep brown/black, creamy beige head. Big Weetabix malts, oatmeal, slight cacao, definite coffee nose. Sweet creamy front, dark chocolate, mild roast, then a big bitter roast finish. Lovely rich body but just a tiny bit bitter for me.

ShivanDragon (2263) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2015
fles zwart met fijne schuimige bruine kraag. aroma is lekker, goede chocolade, stevig, volmoutig, vanille. Smaken komen in eerste instantie een stuk harder binnen dan het aroma, redelijk aan de bittere kant, veel droge koffie, chocolade, wat aan de dunne kant, geroosterde- gebrande mouten, matig zoet, maar zo behoorlijk koffie/moutige tonen, iets té, komt niet meer gebalanceerd binnen. matige body, laag co2, nee deze is niet zo bijzonder

Draft @Pulp Pub. Pours off-white diminishing head, dark brown medium to full body. Excellent aromas of roasted coffee, burnt caramel, licorice, hints of vanilla, cherry, spicy at some point, even a bit smoky indeed. Average alcohol, good presence of hops, resin, dry fruits, bitter dry finish with some slight sourness as an aftertaste. Splendid dry stout, has nothing to do with the dry stouts I’ve had in the past. Well done, Buxton!

Bottle in the Buxton Tap House. Deep brown, almost black with a cream head. nice coffee aroma. the taste is bitter with dry coffee and black chocolate in the finish. A little thin in body, but a very good lower ABV stout.

Pours black haze / clear colour with creamy tiny lught brown head. Carbonation is visualy low. Aroma have no notice of an alcohol, prevails notes of roasted barley and chocolate, with some hint of coffee. Similar is flavor: without notice of an alcohol, but with firstly sweet hint of a dark chocolate and coffee, which led to dry bitter / sweet finish. Malt sweetness is medium, hop bitterness also, body is soft/sticky. Proper, actually very proper dry stout.
