mR_fr0g (4000) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2014
Bottle at home from the chesham brewery shop. Very lively pour, mahogany brown / reddy coloured with a huge mid tan head. Quite difficult to get in the glass. Aroma is effervescent, nutty roasted malts with light berry fruit and earthy orange. Flavour is composed of dry chalky roast malts, tangy berry and harsh coffee harsh. Waaaayyy over carbonated to the point that it is painful on the tongue. Finish is big carbonic acid bite and very dry. Apart from that the flavours are pretty good.

IluvatarMilan (275) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2014
Keg @ the Rake - nearly black body. Some serious smoke and rubber in the nose. Very decent roastiness, somewhat lighter and milder finish. Quite lightbodied. Very nice beer, yet it would be deserving of a more robust backbone, commensurate to its flavours.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle. It pours a reddish dark brown body under a small, dense, light beige head. Roasted aroma with some bonfire and a good dash of dried fruits. Some acidic notes. Dark malts, roasted notes and a malty-sourish touch in the flavor. Full to medium body, dry and with a pleasant carbonation level. Malty-sour roasted aroma with dried fruits and some coffee hints. Pretty decent, but not my kind of stout. 140808
