Perfect looking pitch black stout. Roast, luscious dark malts. High quality stuff and very modern yet with distinct English fermentation characteristics. Yummy. (On tap at The Pint Shop)

On tap @ Four Corner, London - UK. Color: deep dark black beer with no carbonation and medium heavy brown head. Smell: roasted malt, caramel and roasted black bread. Taste: light body with roasted malt domination. Really small sweet taste. Black bread domination. Aftertaste: dry roasted malt. Not my type of beer.

ARH (1117) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2015
On tap, poured into a sampler glass. The aroma is a smooth, brewed coffee and bakery dough blend with a light smoke quality. It pours a deep, dark, opaque black with a light tan, dense, near solid head that has great retention and great lace. The taste is a medium / medium high bitter and medium light sweet. It’s texture is watery with a light fizz. The medium body is toasty with flavors of coffee, caramel, nuts, a light dark chocolate note, and burnt bread underneath. It finishes nutty with dark chocolate notes and a dry, astringent quality. The aftertaste has a bakers chocolate character with light tones of nuts and caramel.

flying_pig (1419) - SCOTLAND - JUL 7, 2015
Pint at Far Rockaway, Shoreditch, London (£5):
Smooth & easy to drink, it definitely reminded me of Guinness more than most dry stouts do; it’s almost a craft version of it & a good alternative to it as well.
