Bottle, bought @ Beer City, Belgium. Pours deep black with a medium, staying, creamy, beige head. Aroma has roasted malts, salt, liquorice, mild toasted. Medium, prickly carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has roasted malts, tar, cocoa powder, salty. Quite bitter salty and malty bitter finish. Perhaps a bit too dry.

Thx! for the sample. 33 cl. bottle sampled during Zwanze Day shenanigans. Dark brown, blackish with a tanned head. Smell is liquorish, touch dark berries jam, some roast and faint chocolate. Taste is that of sweet liquorish, dark berries, big sugar, some herbs and lighter roast, light coffee, touch chocolate. Touch less carb. med. body for a lower ABV. Stout, not special or anything but pretty satisfactory. Not getting any associations with oyster, taste-wise, I have had oysters only once in my life.

C’est bien brun. Le nez tend sur des saveur toreffiées et fumées avec un tres leger ton caramel. En bouche on retrouve le café du stout avec une très légère note iodée. Ca tappe pas trop en alcool. Du coup ca donne une amertume joliment rapeuse et persistante en fin de bouche. avec une très petite astrigeance en debut de bouche qui donne une belle attaque rafraichissante. Joli stout

Mortlach (1870) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 21, 2013
21/05/2013 Mad For Beer (tap). Nera, con riflessi rubino, schiuma bianca abbondante e persistente. Al naso sentori di tostato e salmastro, elegantemente fusi insieme, con quel tocco inglese subito riconoscibile. In bocca ancora malti tostati, la componente salmastra è forse meno evidente, ma comunque apprezzabile. Corpo medio, carbonazione soft. Elegante, misurata ma appagante.

Tasted in 2010 (backlog). Deep brown in color with an average off-white head. Aroma is of sea water, roasted malt, and chocolate. Taste is salty, dark chocolate and roasted malts.

Bottle; black, with the merest hint of ruby brown at the edges, next to no head; roast malt aroma; gentle roast malt and ripe berry fruit flavour; light sweetness; dry, bitter finish with some nice smoky chocolate; smooth and beautifully balanced; I’ve had a few stouts recently from some much vaunted breweries, but this is one of the best.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2013
330ml bottle. Glossy pitch with a slender beige collar. Slightly saline, burnt berries, toast, coal smoke, fennel seed and Black Jacks aroma. Slick, bittersweet but mostly bitter, black choc on burnt toast flavour with brackish hints. Puff of soot. Good.

Cask at the York Tap. Pours dark red brown, white head with good lacing, roasted coffee aroma. Smoooooth. Lovely long chocolate finish.

Grumbo (1199) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2013
Cask handpump at White Horse Winter Best of British Beer Festival, Chelmsford. Black with soft head - great looking pint. Little by way of aroma, mild chocolate, but more chocolate came through on drinking. Full bodied.
