jasonbenali (107) - 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.

Bottle. Black beer with a good light brown coloured head. The aroma is lightly roasted with some mellow milkyness. The flavour is heavily roasted and coffee bean bitter. Overall a nice strongly flavoured stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fin (9289) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2016
Bottle from Beer Gonzo shop 30th April 2016 consumed at home in company of Lynn and Barry on Sunday 1st May 2016. Pours black with a light beige head. Nice coffee aroma but interlaced with a good little punch of fresh green hops. More of the same in the mouth, fresh, a little smoke but hops and coffee with chocolate to a lesser extent the dominant features. I love this, not sure why I have not rated before as I must have had it umpteen times. Tastes move like a black session IPA to me, but regardless it’s V.good. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov16 3.9

ERB92 (617) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2016
Aroma of chocolate, coffee, wood, licorice, cocoa and dried fruits. Almost black with a tan head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a average to soft carbonation. Overall a very nice Stout, a tiny bit on the thin side, but for the ABV it is really great.
