kristerbladh (10) - - APR 18, 2014
Half pint at Camden brewery pub. Pours with a thick head, very Guinness-like in appearance. Lots of roasted notes, bitter and malty. Not very strong, should've had a full pint considering it was on the house!

larsga (5967) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 12, 2014
Medium grayish brown creamy lasting head. Opaque black body. Roasty earthy chocolatey aroma. Dryish minty earthy taste with chocolate and herb notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, smooth mouthfeel. Dryish earthy dusty roasty aftertaste with chocolate pudding notes. Nice, drinkable, unusual. (0.284l draft at Truscott Arms, London.)

mR_fr0g (2019) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2014
Keg at the brewery during the tour. Aroma is nice earthy roast with a hint if caramel. Dark brown with a creamy tan head. Flavour is smooth roast, sweet choc praline and earthy hop. Nice easy drinking stout. Water profile is slightly chalky. Decent beer.

allmyvinyl (2208) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 29, 2014
Keg at Blackfriars. Jet black, nice long-lasting beige head. Aromas are mostly chocolate with light roast notes. Taste is sweet, underlining the chocolate thing. Lacks body, even accounting for the strength. OK.

AshtonMcCobb (2131) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 22, 2014
On keg. Appearancestors - opaque black with a nice fawn creamy head. Nose - almost chocolate but not quite. Almost liquorice but not quite. Maybe a salted liquorice is a more accurate description. Taste - more salted liquorice but something coffee and dark chocolate underneath. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long elegant dry finish. Overall - interesting as its somewhere in the twilight between stout and porter and it does have that savoury edge.

Lowenbrau (1736) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - NOV 16, 2013
On tap @The Union Tavern, Westbourne Park, London. Roasty, spicy aromas. Pours dark with nice tan head. Creamy, silky texture, soft carbonation, medium body. Taste is mild bitter, roasty, some spicy. Smooth and balanced.

Osprey87 (1182) - London via, WALES - NOV 7, 2013
Keg. Totally opaque with small thick tan head. Smell - yeasty, slight smoke to start. Later on I get hints of dry dogshit / bad breath and coffee bean. Maybe coffee breath. Body is quite thin but not foamy. Taste is watery, coins. Maybe a touch of smoke, slightly musty. Feel like I can taste alcohol despite the low ABV. Really not a lot going on but its not unpleasant.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2013 Really nice, low percentage, quite dry, chalky, almost sour, roasty, dark, almost sour sauce taste. Good.

calm_dreamer (140) - GREECE - OCT 3, 2013
Pours black like coal with a nice head that leaves after a bit. Smells like classic dry stout, a bit of coffee, some light hops, and smoke. A fire of smoke. The taste is pretty much the same, smokey dry stouty. Id say like Guinness with smoked malts. Pretty good session beer!
