Bottle (Botle Shop, Canterbury) batch 200OS02 bottled 10may2012, bb+1y.
Sweet roast, touch of choc and some ligher esters in the aroma. Some sharpness too. Jet black, large tight spongy head. Full sweet refreshing palate, pleasantly crisp carbonation. Both a sweet chocolatey side to the roast, but also a little bit of dryness and stale coffe later. Some mineraliness in places fleetingly, and the estery side fortunately stays. Covers 6.2% well, doesn’t seem stronger than a sessionable one. Finish is mostly chocolate malts. Full and lush - very nice.

Opaque black beer. Mild dark malt nose. Quite a crisp palate for a stout. Light as well. A little lactose sweetness well blended with the dark malt. Not dry or bitter. Fresh tasting and minerally. More Porter than Stout for me but light and drinkable.

Cask @ Brussels British Embassy Jubilee garden party. Thanks Cécile. Brune foncée allant sur le noir, col léger beige laissant une fine pellicule sur le verre. Arôme est malté grillé avec un fin bouquet d’écume maritime et salin. En bouche, malt grillé, sur un léger chocolat palais épais et crémeux laissant une pointe minérale. Garde ce profile stout anglais avec une fin couche d’amertume persistante en fin de bouche.

Bottled at chriso´s. Near black, small head. Fruity coffee aroma. Mid sweet with medium body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Mid intensity flavour of chocolate and prunes, some ashy bitterness.

jackl (4596) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Cask. Very dark color, with little head. The aroma’s sweet, roasted malts abound. The taste is sharp, metallic and salty, but finishes rather sweet. Certainly not your run of the mill stout. This stout’s very slick and oily on the tongue. Overall, a strange beer. I appreciate it, but wouldn’t have it regularly.

pivnizub (8853) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - NOV 9, 2011
Bottle: Almost black, small tanned head, rural leathery nose, traces of chocolate underneath; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied as expected; dry malt-bitter finish, dark malt and chocolate included. Not great.....

Gary (1390) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2011
(Cask @ The Man Of Kent, Rochester). This is an attractive stout both to look at and drink . I felt lots of Black Forest Gateau like flavour. Kinda tart and with dry roast. Good construction in this.

Cask conditioned handpump Criterion Leicester. A black beer with a good whitish head. Pretty delicious. The milky and malty aroma doesn’t foretell the wonderful warming oatmeally taste. Salty. A long finish. Would have liked it a degree or two cooler but there are some lovely flavours in this.

[330ml bottle from The Bottleneck, Broadstairs] Deep ruby-black with a moderate tan head. There’s a slight fizz but a smooth, rich, creamy mouthfeel. Plain chcolate dominates at first, followed up by a strong (but not too burnt) roastiness. Port, liquorice and blackberries develop, and there’s a spicy kick in the finish. An interesting and complex stout that’s a delight to drink. Nice one!
