Niall73 (1410) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2013
Tap at CBC Brixton. I could have sworn I've rated this before. I haven't. Deep dark black/brown with some fine carbonation present. Nice toasty, coffee, smoky choc aroma. Light to medium body, a bit watery. Coffee in the main with a touch of treacle sweetness and some dark fruit. There is metal there too. It's just a bit wet and lacking. OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HogTownHarry (6063) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2013
August 18, 2013 - on draught at Cask Pub & Kitchen (Pimlico). Obviously aiming at the Guinness drinker, this looked pretty much like a pint of "G" - opaque black but not thick, solid long-lasting plug of tan nitro head - nice! Aroma is like Guiness with some milkiness and actual roast character - pleasant and vaguely chocolatey, no alcohol, and thankfully not sweet, maybe a hint of lactose. Taste has some coffee and dark chocolate and a weird woody bitterness that reminded me of pencil shavings - not bad, but it knocked it down a tad. Light-bodied and mildly carbonated, quite soft on the palate and a little bit of actual bitterness emerges in the finish - best thing is it’s not sweet and has a decent amount of flavour - Guinness, move over.

Keg at The Hanging Bat, Edinburgh. Black with thick dense beige head. Coffee, roasted malts, chocolate nose. Medium sweet and bitter. A little smokey in the finish. Heavy and smooth. Pleasant but not very special.

stravale (2062) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUL 30, 2013
Keg @ The Hanging Bat, Edinburgh [270713]
Black, dense tan creamy head
Aroma - soft burnt roast malt, touch of burnt toast
Taste of dark caramel, dry roast, bitter chocolate, bitter dark malt, charcoal
Palate - Medium body, smooth, simple. Finish - lingering bitter burnt toast
Overall - I found this a bit disappointing. As a Guinness type keg stout, Samuel Smith’s Extra Stout is better than this
