Bottle & Keg; Filtered & pasteurised.

Brewed with a combination of five different malts, some heavily roasted for a near jet black appearance, and beneath its dark exterior features luxurious red berry notes, toasty aromas on the nose and culminates in a dry, bitter finish.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2014
Bottle from Morrisons, Bracknell. Poured black, with a large beige head, which dissipated quite rapidly. Aroma was fairly light for a stout; some roasted malt, liquorice and molasses. Light coffee flavour, with vanilla and dark fruit. Mouth feel was medium to full. Finish was burnt malt, fruitcake and espresso.

Rodriguez (313) - Quito, ECUADOR - SEP 30, 2014
This is an excellent example of a great dry stout, roasted dry aroma an flavor, something similar to coffee but subtle, malty an caramel flavor, balanced with medium bitterness. Medium body, good head retention and carbonation. Delicious

Keg in the Holly Bush NW3. Dark black colour, thick head. Looks classic, in the style of Guinness. Smooth, some gentle roast, a little fruit. Unfortunately the frozen keg serving tends to dampen flavours somewhat...the cask version is more interesting.

Gurthnar (2363) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle. Aroma roasted malt, light burnt, fruity, but also moderate amount of metallic. Clear dark brown colour, quickly disappearing head. Taste is roasty and fruity, dull metallic flavour. Rather thin body. Light sourness in finish. Average beer.

dynamiteninja (1626) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle. Medium tan head with no retention. Deep mahogany body. Spice, toffee, chocolate, roasted malt, wood smoke, iron, dust, blackberries, pine resin. Sweet then bitter. A little sourness. Dry finish. Well rounded: good balance between malt and hops. Refreshing. Mouthfeel is a little creamy, quite soft with a little oiliness. Excellent.

adster (475) - HUNGARY - SEP 25, 2014
Mély gesztenyebarna testére puha habfedő rajzolódik, mely alól száraz, nemespenészes, illetve pörkölt és angolosan malátás illatok kacsintanak ki. Kakaópor, étcsokoládé, enyhén füstös zamatok tisztázódnak aztán egy kaján édeskés hangulattal, mely benyomásoktól aztán száraz lecsengésük során búcsúzhatunk jó szívvel. Amolyan ivó-stout, melyet a Fuller’s nem annyira a meglepetések kedvelőinek, mint inkább a jól bevált angolszász-vonulat konzervatívabb hívei számára készített. Mindemellett egy tartalmas és kielégítő főzettel van dolgunk, így amennyiben a minőséget a könnyed mondanivalóval kívánjuk párosítani, ne is keresgéljünk tovább!

Pours black, with a firm white head. The aroma is very roasty. Bitter taste, consisting mainly of burnt coffee and liquorice.

Kosmokrator (517) - ITALY - SEP 13, 2014
Nera e quasi impenetrabile con un sottile velo di schiuma beige chiaro. Aroma deboluccio, tostato e leggermente caffettoso con un sentore di cioccolato appena accennato. Gusto un po’ vuoto e abbastanza classico dove si mescolano note di espresso, cacao e malto abbrustolito. Corpo lieve, effervescenza debole, struttura setosa ed un po’ acquosa. Non amo alla follia le stout "semplici" e questa non fa eccezione, anche se tutto sommato č ben "confezionata".

LasseVPedersen (281) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle, 50cl. Pours a black colour that settles with a fine, foamy beige head. In the nose you’ll find roasted, dark malts, coffee, liquorice, milk chocolate and some berries. Flavour follows the nose with roasted creamy malt notes, a light bitter coffee taste that ends with a chocolate, dark fruits silky light and smooth palate. Dry finish with herbal hops in the balanced bitterness. Watery light body, but very delightful mouth-feel. Soft carbonation. Quite good.
