Cask @ Rushden Historical Transport Society. Impenetrable black witha beige head. Beech smoke and seawater dominate the aroma. The taste is nothing short of incredible: sweet/salty with a meaty umami finish and aftertaste. Full creamy palette. This is a perfect oyster stout, the stuff that dreams are made of.

Bottle at Chris_o’s The Wolf tasting. I really am going to have to get some more of this from the brewery. Very deep ruby colour with thin tan head. Good roasted malt, very deep and rich, rather lovely. Good in mouth, rich thick and excellent.

[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!

AndrewC (353) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2010
Bottled in July 2010. Black. Low carbonation with frothy ring to the head. Smells a little of molasses, a little of charcoal and a little of blackjack sweets. Roasted flavours dominate to start followed by a slight sourness and some alcoholic liquorish burn. Finish is roasted malt. Hopping rate seems low with some leafy hop flavour hiding in the background. Cracking little beer.

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.

On the tap. Velvety taste, soft and perfumed foam, not perceived as much alcoholic despite the %

7/IX/14 - 33cl bottle from 5de Gents Bierfestival @ home - BB: 12/VI/14, bottled: 12/VI/13 (2014-971)

Clear dark brown to black beer, huge creamy beige head, very stable, adhesive. Aroma: fruity, hops, bit soapy, sweet, some caramel. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: bit sweet, some caramel, roasted, mocha, sweet touch, but also fruity bitter hops, citrus, bit floral. Aftertaste: mocha, coffee, hops, citrus, little sour, bit grassy, could pass as a Black IPA, I think, though the kind of BIPA that leans more towards stout than towards IPA.
