EdKing (2095) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2014
Cask in CBC Clapham. Opaque very dark brown to black, thin off white to tan head. Nose is very rich with lots of roasted malt, burnt malt, charcoal, cold fresh black coffee. Tate is bitter roasted malt and black coffee, some charcoal, dark chocolate. Roasted flavours really dominating. Body is lighter than many stouts, quite watery, but very good.

a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2014
Black, ruby glow at the edges, zero head; aroma is treacly, a bit solvent-like; taste is roast malt, dark chocolate, raisins; bitter; very smooth; a good stout which punches way above its weight.

DarkSideOfBeer (47) - Padova, ITALY - JAN 31, 2014
Una stout come si deve,senza gran ricami è perfetta e leggerissima da bere nonostante la presenza abbastanza massiccia di malti tostati e un ricamo di caffè, con una punta di affumicato appena percettibile la rendono una classica stout per qualsiasi occasione,veramente buona

Hanoi (571) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2014
Nose is coffee, a little smoke, a little cream. Taste is strongly of burnt coffee, with smoke and a touch of cream leading to a very dry earthy finish. Mouthfeel is a little too thin. It’s a very good example of an English stout, it’s just hard to get too excited about.

teddybeer (2590) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 14, 2014
Black colour with a light beige head with medium duration and moderate lacework. Aroma is strong roasty notes with hints of ashes and black chocolate. Flavor is roasty, licorice, black chocolate and coffee beans are highly present. The final is a little bit watery with a dry mouthfeel.

McNeillR (1637) - SCOTLAND - JAN 9, 2014
Stern dark brown, decent beige head. Clean soft roast nos. Lightest tobacco, singed coffee and creamy bitterness. Very squeaky and oily mouthfeel with watery finish. Fair but not firm. Decent for its weight.

bhensonb (12140) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle from Berkeley Bowl - West. Pours very dark brown with no head. Aroma is treacle with coffee notes. Med body. Thins as the mild carbonation departs. Flavor is treacle, dark malt, a little coffee. There might be some smoky notes. Finishes a little earthy, and surprising dry, considering the treacle I thought I was experiencing. Has strong flavor for 4.1 ABV.
