SaintMatty (6806) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - DEC 31, 2007
Cask at The Guide Dog, Southampton- Black in colour with a tan head. The aroma is of coffee and mildly smoky. The taste is quite thin at first but becoming more pronounced after a couple of sips with coffee and chocolate detected. Quite a nice pint.

imdownthepub (13233) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2007
Cask conditioned at The Nags Head. Black with brown head. Enjoyed whilst watching the Rugby World Cup Final. There is loads going on in this beer, just like the scrums on the telly. Smokey, burnt and a hint of sourness, full and challenging. I liked it.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2007
A Sim rate (cask at St Albans BF): Very bitter flavour. Smoky (Mes says ’peaty’) with a dark chocolate hit. Aroma is very alcoholic and slightly sweet with plum and other berry-type fruits. Roasty, hammy. The flavour is full, but just not my sort of thing.

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 13, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2007 Cask (St. Urho’s, Helsinki, Porter and Stout days 2007). Smells like a strong bitter, tastes of the heavy oils of roasted grains. Plenty of hops too.

downender (7925) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2009 Cask conditioned at the Cornubia, Bristol 4/4/07. Jet black with a slight, almost beige head. Full aroma of burnt chocolate and roasted coffee. Easy drinking with a sweet finish. Would agree with Maeib’s comment that a touch more alcohol would make this beer really special, although it is very good as it stands.

sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 14, 2007
(Cask@St.Urhos) Almost black with a smallish, bubbly and mostly fading head. Roasty and burned aroma with some unclean vegetable hints. Smooth and licoricey flavor with black coffee and some roasted malt. Very smooth, medium-bodied palate with low carbonation. An enjoyable and balanced stout. Gives you more than the aroma suggests.
