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.

tricksta_p (3371) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is strong roasted malt, coffee, notes of dark chocolate with a hint of dark fruits. Flavour is lightly sweet with a potent and long roasty dry bitter finish. Body is light to medium. A very fine heavily roasty and bitter Stout.

77ships (7682) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2016
330 ml. bottle. Bottled 07MAR16. Dark brown, cough sryup hue, creamy tanned head. Great lacing. Nose is powdery mocha, grainy chocolate milk, faintly cheesy hops, coffee grounds, powdery, instant chocolate milk mix. Taste is quite bitter herbal, big charcoal & ashes streak running through it, very bitter coffee grounds, low cacao & toffee, thin, gainy faintl oat milk, bitter roast & more ashes, light cigarette ashes. Massively grainy body & dry, decent for a touch thin, very grainy low ABV stout that is so heavy (overly heavy for me) on ashes & burned dry very grainy grounds.

jasonbenali (123) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2016
330ml bottle. Pours dark brown to black with off white head and decent lacing. Aroma is creamy, roasted coffee, mint, herbs and dried fruits. Taste is quite bitter, dry, with ash in the background and a medium slightly chalky finish. Plenty of body for its strength. Decent stout, particularly for its ABV, if a little unbalanced.
