mile (2853) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 28, 2013
Bottle. Very dark brown, average and fully diminishing light brown head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, lots of roasted malt - light burnt malt, light coffee and faint hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and dryish flavor, roasted malt with light coffee, light hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and dry, lots of roasted malt - light burnt malt, light salty licorice, faint coffee and light hoppyness. Nice dry stout with roasted malt - could use more body.

stravale (2035) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - FEB 22, 2013
Cask @ Caley, Edinburgh [190213]
Black, rich creamy tan head, good lacing
Aroma of soft roasted malts and some chocolate
Taste of quite rich creamy dark malts, soft roast, dark chcolate
Palate - thin to medium body, creamy texture. Finish as main flavour, nice soft bitter chocolate malt linger, richer texture in the finish, but gets more dry with some stronger roast on the tail.
Overall - Good flavour and body for a 4.1% stout - like the rich smooth finish with dryish cocoa left on the palate

Cask at craft. Black with short lasting head. Biscuity aroma, slightly roasty, ashy, chocolate. Similar taste with a slight fruitiness. Light bodied. Very nice but could do with more weight.

Pours a black colour with a small head. Aroma of roasted malts, tobacco and bread-like notes. Flavour of roasted malts, sweet dried fruits, salty licorice, ash and strong bitterness. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a roasty bitter finish with subtle saltiness. Pleasant.

Grumbo (525) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2013
Cask from The Ale House, Chelmsford. Looked the part, almost black with a little head, decent chocolate aroma, however I found this to be much too bitter and much too dry and this took away much of the enjoyment of this beer.

Old Fountain. Opaque dark brown beer, small tan head. Palate is soft and airy. Not much carbonation but it has a nice mouthfeel. Mellow soft dark malt. Touch of sour dark chocolate and super mild coffee. Whisper of fruit underneath. Semi dry finish with a mild bitter aftertaste and tang. Nice soft stout.

6th August 2011
Cask at Southampton Arms as ’Kinder Stout’. Very dark brown beer, little pale tan head. Light dry palate. Very light dark malt. Decent fruit in the undertone. Dry finish. A fruity but dry and inoffensive porter. 3.3
