Bottle at Delday’s house. Pours with a large head, which is slightly off white colour, actually I guess it is quite beige. A strong tasting brew. Nice.

500ml bottle at home. I really rate this stuff, better on draught as no bottle carbonation but still good all the same. Almost black stout with a thin tan head, chocolate, coffee, toffee, cocoa, and roasted malts. Glides down the throat. Lush.

Rostosto (31) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 12, 2014
Did a food match with this one hop nuts. Cheese on toast with spring onion, spinach and chorizo. Would work better with a deep thick beef stew but held up with the sweet smokiness of the chorizo and salty cheese. Get me! Back to the beer, great Herby sweet aroma that promises more than the flavour. I’ve marked down the typical coffee, chocolate, treacle taste by a measly point due to the aroma fooling you into thinking its a bit more special. Thus, its a bloody good stout that would benefit from a slightly chewer palate. Good un’ init?

Sample at the delft monthly tasting. Thin creamy tan head. Deep burgundy pour. Chocolate in the aftertaste. Nice

gegwilson (1472) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle from a Glasgow ASDA. Pours mahogany with a thin cream head. The flavour is roasty with coffee and some smokey notes. Some light spice too. The flavours are pleasant but quite mild and it’s thin bodied. A fairly average stout.

Weefannybaws (105) - Paisley, SCOTLAND - NOV 9, 2014
500ml bottle. Dark ale with little head. Coffee and iron aromas. Roast coffee and chocolate tastes. Not a bad stout. Would go well with crisps or nuts.

Graham77 (281) - Cumbria, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2014
500ml bottle. Pleasant sweet aroma of coffee and chocolate similar taste but with a dryness too. A very decent stout

shoestring (285) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - OCT 17, 2014
Black, black deep clour. Fluffy small head. Coffe, roated barley and oats are all in there. Bitterness to the fore also - maybe slightly too much at times for me?
