(Cask at Gallows Bird, 20120908) The beer poured almost black and clear. Its head was small and nearly white. Aroma had roasted malts, chocolate and caramell. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were malts, roasted malts, sweetness, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste was roasty and bitter. A thin but not bad stout.

Nuffield (3637) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Very dark brown/black, thin head. Big, classically vegetal aroma with some orange marmelade. A bit of texture to the body but a really awful flavor. None of the richness of a stout. Dandelions and cut grass. Light bitterness. Something is wrong, but it’s at a good venue, so I assume it is the beer. (cask at the Scottish Real Ale Festival, Edinburgh, June 2012)

tombyars (1317) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JAN 24, 2012
Tasted this at the Fox & Hounds, Houston in May 2004. Cask, handpump dispense. Dull black in colour with a thick creamy buff white head. Strong roast malt long in the nose. Thick and creamy texture to the mouthfeel and good lacing. Dark malts deliver a strong burnt toast and roast grain note at the start with coffee beans, bitter chocolate and liquorice all evident. Slight prickle of dry hop flowers present in the brief aftertaste. Finish is smooth and malty with sweet winey blackcurrants in there - just. An excellent session stout and highly recommended.

mr_h (2446) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JAN 21, 2012
Cask by handpump at Camperdown Place, Glasgow - pours very dark brown with a small tan head, very bitter chocolate flavour with a somewhat astringent finish, sadly not my type of beer

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 17, 2011
On cask at Bennetts. Pours a nice dark ruby - brown colour with a thin light tan head. Lovely aroma of roasty malt, chocolate, juniper berries and caramel. Similar favours with moderate carbonation and a slick mouth-feel. Very nice.

stravale (1898) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUL 16, 2011
Cask @ Old Mill Brodie....Dark brown-black with 1 finger slightly tan off white head. Aroma - roasted malt, some cocoa and bit of coffee. Taste - not as roasted as the aroma would suggest, again bit of coffee but the chocolate comes through nicely. Finish - dry, bit bitter cocoa finish. Pleasant beer, seems to have improved since I had it a while back.....some people may find the roast lacking in intensity, but in this case it doesn’t do the beer a disservice.

imdownthepub (9651) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2011
Cask conditioned at The Barrels Alehouse, Berwick upon Tweed, Northumberland. Black with cream head. Heavy, bitter chocolate notes, dark, roasty with good intensity. There is a hop note that rises above this too. All in all quite powerful flavours and a really decent beer.
