500ml bottle shared with Ash - Cheers! Pours black with a thin tan head. Aromas of coffee and dark chocolate. Taste is more coffee, not enough chocolate or lactic sweetness going on for me. Best of theirs tried today though.

50cl bottle from the brewery. Appearance - opaque black with a decent creamy head. Nose - dark chocolate and a hint of coffee. Taste - coffee and dark chocolate. Tiramasu. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly elegant finish. Overall - a decent stout. The best from the range.

downender (6238) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2013
On gravity at the Gryphon, Bristol. Near black with a sight, off-white head. Sweet, black treacle and chocolate aroma, with plenty of toasted malts. Flavour had more sweetness, alongside black coffee, some liquorice and a touch of dried fruit, before a lingering, dry finish. Good.

Cask at NWAF, 2013. Black pour with a beige head. Bonfire toffee, caramel and butterscotch aroma. Toffee and caramel flavour. Light, bitter approach. Nice.

Theydon_Bois (8290) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2012
Bottle on the train from Edinburgh (thanks to an IP trade with Craig Garvie) - 08/12/12. Mid black with a thin tan head that escapes to the edge and leaves a film. Nose is dark roast malt, touch of chocolate, dark toffee notes, dark sugars. Taste comprises roast malts, liqourice, mineral tones, pinch of chcocolate, touch of molasses. Medium bodied with soft carbonation leading to a dry finish. Decent.

ianwelby (464) - SCOTLAND - DEC 7, 2012
Pours with a thick, brown head. A malt/chocolate aroma and the taste is similar with a (obviously) strong chocolate taste. Surprisingly light, crisp finish makes for a very drinkable stout.

Handpull at SRAF 2012. Deep black brown, thin beige head. Nice chocolatey nose, chocolate milkshake!? Sweet coffee, big liquorice, some milk sugars. Thick viscous mouthfeel, lots of rich dark chocolate, liquorice again, some subtle roasted barley, some light vanilla. Light milk sugars. Soft roasty finish. Very nice.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 24, 2011
On cask at The Bow Bar Summer Beer Festival, 2011. A black ale with a thin tan head. Big roasted malt aroma with chocolate, coffee and caramel notes. Tastes a little sweet with flavours of caramel, toast, roasted barley and espresso coffee with one sugar. Lovely thick, malty mouth-feel.
