Classy and mild stout with a huge liquorice look and some roasted nuts + malt in the back. Easy to drink, a bit watery but once again a Fuller hit.

Pours out of the bottle in a deep dark black colour with low creamy head and medium body. Aroma of malt and torf. Taste of intense malt, torf, woods, nuts, campfire and dark grains. Earthy character and low carbonation. Nice and solid beer, enjoyed it a lot.

Dark, roasty, with nice bittering. Smell is a bit lagery? Same hops? Possibly drinking this way to cold.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml Bottle: BBD 28 Apr 14, poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard on 17 Nov 13.
Very, very dark body, itís black, just like itís name: the head was a tan blanket of foam.
The aroma is semi-burnt chocolate malts, as is the taste with coffee esters and a liquorice stick floating within.
Creamy, yet dry in flavour and mouth feel, easy on the palate and one of the best UK brewed Stouts around.

Itís better, cause 1845 is too sweet and too mediocre tasting, inbetween color of light-dark.
Black Cab is more proper, slight taste of an ashtray, not sugary, pleases me for what this should be for a lower priced dark beer.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Norma Jean. Very dark brown to black with a tan head. Roasty aroma with chocolate, a bit of coffee and some dark fruitiness. Roasty flavor, bittersweet, with lots of dark chocolate, coffee notes, a touch of nuts and a light fruity hint. Medium-bodied, rounded mouthfeel. Nice stuff.
