Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 5, 2013
Pours red/brown. A sweet kick at the start with a surprising bitter after taste but it is also quite two toned it tastes artificially sweet and also thin. Not for me

cargo150 (564) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 26, 2013
Bière noire avec un col beige mousseux. Nez de malt grillée légèrement chocolat. En bouche c’est une stout assez ordinaire, malt grillé,chocolat. Bière assez sec, pas une mauvaise bière mais rien de nouveau.

OwainTurner (313) - Leicester, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle from supermarket. Very nice indeed. A little weak on the aroma but taste is well balanced if a little sweet.

Scopey (6711) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2013
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. It pours black with a small beige head. The nose is sweet, molasses, sugar, soft roast, toast and some soy sauce. The taste is sweet roast, treacle, molasses, caramel, toasty, cardboard, alcohol, umami character and cheap plain chocolate with a boozy finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Far from elegant. No real depth of flavour. So-so.

tompete (208) - Tillsonburg, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2013
300ml bottle. Pours an opaque dark brown with reddish edges. Head is fast disappearing and light brown. Aroma of cheap sugar and malt. Flavour is sweet with caramel and roast. Finish is slightly astringent with dark grains and a hint of alcohol.

taylorderek (25) - - OCT 17, 2013
Poured chilled into dimpled tankard. Nice coffee-stain coloured head with a body so dark you can’t see through it in direct light. Heavy malt feel to the beer with a taste that blends sweet and bitter perfectly. Full body with very little carbonation after the first few sips - goes down smooth.
