Leighton (12696) - London, Greater London, - OCT 12, 2012
Cask at CBC Clerkenwell, London. Pours clear, dark gold with a fine, beige cream head. Aroma holds some modest lactic sugars, modest roast, some leather, dirt and wet wood. Medium sweet flavor with mellow chocolate, dirt, background dark fruits, mild earthy bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Finishes with a bit more bitterness, plenty of dirt, earth and burnt leaves, along with toasty malts, milk chocolate and fruit skins. Quite a nice sweet stout.

Beer4000 (4776) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2015
500 ml bottle. Clear, dark amber body with a thin tan head. Light aroma of dark malt, bread and a faint hint of toast. Flavor is medium sweet malt and slightly harsh bitterness. Medium body and average in aftertaste. Pretty one-dimensional and boring.

Bottle from archer road beer stop, sheffield. Dark red with small off white head. Roasted malt and tart fruit. Sweet and tart with lasting bitterness. A little over carbonated for me. Ok.

SilverfoX (519) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2014
smells like chocolate and melting plastic (!?) black body with ruby edging, dry, watery chocolatey average and not at all what it should have been.

Ruby. Dense and persistent beige head and lacing. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and berries. Similarly fine taste, well balanced with bitterness. Surprisingly quaffable. Wonderful mouthfeel.

Holmen1 (3050) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2014
0,5l flaske fra Inverness, delt med importør Ovesen ombord på Fridtjofen juli-14: fint gardinskum, nydelig rubinfarge og aroma av kraftige bær (tranebær) og kaffe. Syrligfrisk smak og god munnfylde. Lang ettersmak med balansert bitterhet, her er der mye glede for bare 4,7%.

thmsboyd (48) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JUL 2, 2014
Beer dated 10/14. Yeasty/bready aroma, with red berries and chocolate milk. Deep mahogany appearance with a small, rocky tan head. Sweetness to taste with an abrupt finish. Slight slick, creamy mouthful, but fairly light-bodied for a stout. Typically low carbonation
