500ml . Bottle. In a tulip . Ruby brown and not resembling any fucken stout Iím accustomed with in body ... Wow this is a racist beer ... Khaki head is subtle and lazy . Nose of chocolate and sugars and roast . Tastes like a chocolate cake in nuance , one where the richness of chocolate mixes well with sour bitter dark fruit berry texture . This tastes pretty decent , but as a stout purist, I gotta ask what the fuck kinda colour is that ? Itís almost dark Amber . A 3 because it still looks decent , even though itís totally wrong!

Disparate head over hazy light-brown beer (stout???). Bottom solid yeast. Woody nose, chocolate malt, pencil(wood). Chocolate, sweetish, lightly coloured malts. Acidity backthroat (light). Quite well-bodied for its ABV. Feels better carbonated than it looks. I agree - "Brown Jack" doesnít sound very comestible. But this Jack ainít black! Txs to Stef!

ManVsBeer (8496) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2016
Bottle from Crocombeís, Lynmouth. Mid-brown with no head. Described as a ílight stoutí it is in colour, and surprisingly so in its taste given its strength, we which is not overly obvious. Thereís a sweetness amongst its roasted malts in its nose, and this is more dominant in its taste.

Bottle thanks to mum and dad, bought back from Devon. Dark brown beer, very light carbonation. Aroma of roast malts and caramel. Taste is roast malts, caramel and some fruit. Ok if lifeless.

Bottle. Deep brown pour with little to no head. Subtle notes of coffee with dark maltiness. Well balanced. More of a Porter then a Stout. Very enjoyable.

prawlie (1499) - ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2015
From cask at the Roundhouse in Plymouth. Dry and earthy. Looks a little light in colour for a stout. Very light chocolate aroma. Quite drinkable, but lacking any distinctiveness.

Beese (2561) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2014
Cask at GBBF 2012. Poured a very dark brown, with a halo of beige head. Aroma of tobacco, weak coffee and dark malt. Roasted malt flavours, with some dark chocolate and berries. Moderate mouthfeel. Finish was earthy grain, liquorice and molasses.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2014
From The Devon Horde. 500ml. Good as headless ruby- strangely transparent for a stout with low to no condition. Aroma of sweet vegetable crisps, red berries, chocolate, rust and redcurrant. Good flavour despite the flatness with soggy malted milk biscuit spread with Nutella malt notes and an abundance of rust and soapy berry, pomegranate-like fruit. Not stout, not conditioned but a decent beer nonetheless.
