Poured from a 12oz bottle into a nonic glass. No "born on date." Aroma - Black licorice, chocolate, dark bread, espresso. Faint smoke - dark fruit emerges as it warms. Very impressed. Appearance - Sticky mocha head. Deep, black color with some mahogany hues around the edges. Taste - Chocolate (initially milk then giving way to the darker persuasion), hints of smoke, finishing with dark roasted coffee. Burnt flavors linger prominently on the pallet. Palate - Supremely creamy, softy carbonated. Light bodied. Bone dry. Overall - Perhaps the best example of the style Iíve ever tried.

ladnewton (1569) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2011
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. Fresh ground coffee, smoky touch and roasted malts in liquid. Lasting bitter finish and plenty of coffee notes. Thick, full-mouth texture. Excellent.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 6, 2012
Bottle from Ninaís. 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.

Poured a deep brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of roast malt, burnt coffee grinds and dark chocolate. Full body, flavour as per the aroma, well balanced with a hint of liquorice.

BeerViking (2939) - 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.

Pours almost black with a solid tan head. Aroma is standard dark malt combination of coffee and dark chocolate. Taste is moderate sweet, a bit sour, unexpectedly smooth. I was captivated by the aftertaste - long, lingering on the palate coffee, dark chocolate and roasted grain with gentle bitterness in the background. I am not an aficionado of dry stouts but I must admit that this one is really good and enjoyable.

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. Itís 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. Itís chocolaty in a sort of dark chocolate way. Itís 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.
