A dark pour. This is a pretty good stout for the area. Not too strong. A little roasted. Sweet.

Bozo_skeleton (890) - Grenoble, FRANCE - APR 24, 2016
Noire, grosse carbo, collet moyen de fine bulles, persistant. Aromes peu puissant, chocolat, café, pain Mousse cremeuse a souhait, vive et mince a l’attaque, l’interret se porte sur la finale persistante bien café et bien seche.

Jyrsa (402) - - APR 20, 2016
Bottle from milk store. Pours clear dark brown with light beige head. Faint nose of roast, berries, chocolate. Light body, nice and bitter with watery palate and a slightly toasty finish. Good enough for a low abv stout but a bit watery for my tastes.

Straightforward example of the genre. A bit lackluster in aroma and taste to be honest, but very easy to drink.

mkel07 (4832) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 14, 2016
Bottle from Cool Wine 140416. It's heading towards stout weather so I'm getting in early. Smooth burnt flavours fill the mouth. Super dark in colour with a slight head. Hints of chocolate and vanilla in the finish.

mateuszk (1583) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 4, 2016
Draught.pours almost black with small beige head. Aromas od roasted malts, light roastiness, some caramel and biscuits. In taste medium sweet with dry and lightly bitter and acidic finish. Nothing shocking but perfect example of english beer to drink in huge amounts in pub.

London Black Cab • Aroma (10/10): Miel, fuertes caramelos, suaves flores, café y chocolate; toques cítricos lejanos. • Apariencia 4/5: o Cabeza (color, consistencia y duración):  Cabeza escasa, café oscuro, cremosa. Desaparece fácilmente dejando una escasa nata. o Cuerpo (textura, carbonización, partículas y color):  Completamente oscura. Más que la coca cola. No se puede apreciar ni partículas ni burbujas. • Sabor 9/10 (inicio, final y duración): o Inicio: Inicio ligero. Sorprendentemente insípido. o Final: bastantes umamis y dulces en los dientes. Ligero amargor. • Paladar 4/5 (Cuerpo, textura, carbonización, final). o Cuerpo ligero, cremoso, sin burbujas. Final ligeramente amarga y de corta duración. Resumen 18/20: Un Sabor muy balanceado. Sin ser hiriente al paladar, nos presenta una rica complejidad de aromas. Una cerveza digna de catarse. Se las recomiendo.

Nearly black color. Lightly carbonated. Not overbearing aromas of coffee, a bit of chocolate, roasted smell, a touch of berries. Nice balance, but on the bitter spectrum. Tastes of burned coffee, herbal hops, with a lingering chocolate finish. A good dry stout.
