Cask at the Southampton Arms, London on 6th August 2011. Ink-black with pale brown head. Inch of rich initial lacing then sporadic and patchy. Rich roast malts aroma; touch of fruitcake.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 6, 2012
Bottle from Nina’s. A black stout with a thick tan head. Looks great! Aroma of roasty malt, coffee and chocolate. Flavours of roasty malt again upfront with coffee grounds and chocolate to finish. Moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Nicely bitter also. Lovely.

BeerViking (2689) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2013
Cask at the Magpie, near-black with a clingy mid-coarse beige head and aromas of bitter cocoa and a little coffee and plum. Rich and winey, yet dry and bitter with hints of smoke and liquorice. Gorgeous.

CanIHave4Beers (3362) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAR 13, 2014
In bottle, labeled as Kinder Stout.
Pours a very nice dark brown (almost black) with a decent sized khaki head and good lacing on the glass.

The aroma has light coffe and lots of cocoa. It’s roasty & rich very mild yorguty lactic notes. Very inviting.

The flavor is fantastically roasty, with a nice level of grain bitterness that never takes things over the edge. It’s chocolaty in a sort of dark chocolate way. It’s got a light smokiness & is basically dry. The dark fruit is very mild and works nicely with an even more buried tartness for a subtle fruity character.

The palate is never thin at all & this passes as a nicely full bodied stout.

Enjoyable on all accounts, how I long for a 4.1% abv stout of this character brewed in my neck of the woods.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2014
Bottle from the Red Squirrel Chesham Brewery Shop. Poured black, with a dense tan head. Aroma of molasses, grassy hops and treacle. Full, thick mouth feel. Initial flavours of black syrup, burnt sugar and dark malt. Finish was building, bitter hops, coffee and dry, roasted malt. Really full flavours for the comparatively low alcohol content.
