Draft at Churchkey. Poured an almost pitch black color with a small tan head. Aroma was some coffee, lots of burnt character. Notes say dry erase, but that could have been an auto-correct issue. Flavor was nice and roasty. Dry finish. Easy to drink. Reminded me a bit of the Guinness Extra Stout.

ContemplateBeer (1878) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Aroma: Roasted malts with light to moderate dark fruity esters (raisins, etc.); whipped cream. Appearance: Opaque black pour with a minimal tan head that settles into a bubbly skin. Flavor: Dry roast up front; fruity esters are minimized; a little chalky; finishes with a lingering leafy bitterness. Palate: Light body, slick texture, flat carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Didn’t get into this too much, but an interesting stout that would be worth a try for stout lovers. Reminds me of a dry stout.

jmgreenuk (6495) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a dark mahogany colour with a frothy light tan head. The aroma is malty, liqourice, light smoke light coffee. The flavour is moderate bitter very light sour with a light, slightly watery coffee metallic spicy hop malt bitter palate. Moderate to light bodied with lively carbonation. A little too light for a stout IMO.

AshtonMcCobb (4413) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 20, 2014
On cask at Cloisters. Appearance - opaque brown to black. Lovely fawn head. Nose - some dark chocolate but dominant roast really. Taste - more roasty and slightly smoky. Then the dark chocolate and cream comes through. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a dry malty finish. Overall - yep nice roasty stout.

javiercrasher (254) - Granada, SPAIN - NOV 15, 2014
De color negro claro con una buena capa de cremosa espuma marrón con bastante consistencia. Aroma a café molido y maltas torrefactas, con fondo de ceniza. De cuerpo ligero y cremosa, con poca carbonatación. En boca presencia del torrefacto y algo de ahumado. Final seco y un poco amargo. Una muy buena stout para el poco alcohol que tiene.
