AdiBeer (886) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2014
Aroma: light toasted malts, coffee, chocolate, not overpowering though. Appearance: dark brown/black, small beige head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: toasted notes immediately intensify, bitters get quite pronounced, coffee, short finish, quite heavy body. Overall: nice Stout, quite nice and subtle palate. Bottle from Waitrose, Canary Wharf.

erickok (3424) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUL 12, 2014
Pitch black body and stable large tan head. Nice chocolate and dark brown bread malts, rye, even some raisin. Very rich taste for the abv, honestly impressed. Not just the first sips too, but all the way until the end. Very nice to drink, rich yet never thick or too much. Very bit surprise as I had solid expecting but even these were exceeded! (50cl bottle from Saveur BiŤre)

Narkee (8) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 11, 2014 does not count
Pours almost black with slight brown clarity when held to the light. Fluffy tan head which holds well. Aroma is soft chocolate and roastiness. Very smooth but thick mouth feel. Roasted coffee forms the back bone which thins out to a creamy coffee and subtle chocolate bitterness. Nice beer and very easy to drink.

DYCSoccer17 (3300) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 9, 2014
500mL bottle purchased at Total Wine Arden Sacramento. The aroma has a fair roastiness with a bit of an underlying mineral character, too. Some anise also makes a presence. Somewhat transparent dark mahogany body with a strong, persistent light tan head present. Starts with a fair roastiness, before this becomes quite chalky in the middle with lots of mineral flavors. Becomes metallic and penny-like. Finishes with a little more chalk and roast. Not a huge fan of this.

tomekk1978 (418) - POLAND - JUL 9, 2014
Barwa: ciemna z rubinowymi refleksami, klarowna. Piana bezowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, średniej wielkości, ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Aromat: karmel, czekolada, orzechy, lekkie melanoidyny - bardzo łagodny. Brak chmielu czy alkoholu. Smak: słodowy, raczej lekki, umiarkowanie słodki, nieco kwaskowy, z bardziej wytrawną końcůwką. Nuty czekolady gorzkiej, kawy oraz paloności. Dość łagodne, ale z czasem męczące. Browar Fullerís produkuje całą gamę piw, z ktůrych większość ciężko nazwać wybitnymi. Z drugiej strony warzy růwnież old ale, vintage ale czy imperialne stouty (swoją drogą czekają na swoją kolej), ktůre do tanich nie należą. London Black Cab sytuuje się gdzieś pośrodku. Nie jest może zbyt wyraziste, ale okazuje się całkiem przyzwoitą propozycją, choć raczej dla początkujących.

harrisoni (13248) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle from Waitrose and drunk at home. black beer lasting thin tan head. Itís a run of the mill stout, not that this is a bad thing. A bit of blackcurrant fruit, a bit of roast. Some dark chocolate, some roast. Little bit of harsh bitterness on the finish. Itís fine. Certainly drinkable. And a good balance of roast and blackcurrant. Yes, decent.
