Cask in the Isis, Sunderland. Nice deep mahogany body with a creamy white head. Smooth with toasty flavours, especially coffee. A nice session stout.

Leighton (10702) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2013
Cask at the Pembury Tavern, London - shared with Jack. Pours clear brown with a weak, white foam head. Dry roasted malt aroma, some light smoke and earth. Very mellow roast in the flavor, light sweetness, faint minerals. Light in body with fine carbonation. Crisp finish with burnt toast, light rocks, faint cocoa. Meh, nothing special. Although, it’s worth noting that the condition of the beers at the Pembury on this visit has not been optimal. This beer was OK, but I’m sure it could be better.

wimpyjoe (3722) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2013
Has an unusual soapy aroma for a stout and only a light texture and flavour. Probably a bad batch.

jackl (4560) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Cask @ The Pembury Tavern. The pour’s deep brown with hardly any head whatsoever. The nose is rich chocolate syrup, some roasted malts, tar. The taste is earthy, bitter chocolate. Some wood. Roasted malts. Rich body. Smooth, lightly hoppy finish. Light body, easy to drink. Overall, pretty decent!

Martin243 (757) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2012
Pint at the Central, Gateshead. Darkest ruby with a tan head. All the usual stout licquorice mocha aroma and flavour present and correct. Quite dry, but nothing to particularly distinguish it from other stouts. Why dry? Nice though.

tombyars (1352) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 1, 2012
Tasted this at the Paisley Beer Festival in April 2011. Cask, gravity dispense. Dark ruby black in colour with no head. Strong roasted malt and drinking chocolate powder in the long intense aroma. Creamy mouthfeel and no lacing. Dark malts give a strong black malt burnt toast note, then bitter chocolate, chicory and creamy mocha coffee notes kick in. No fruit notes noted in this at all. Slight bitter hop resins give a brief dry note in the aftertaste. Roast malt dominates the dry finish with roasted almonds and wood smoke evident. A moreish session stout, but it is extremely dry thoughout. Well recommended.

TheCametron (1780) - CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 28, 2011
Cask at the Stockbridge Tap. Deep red with decent creamy head. Roasted coffee bitterness. Not bad.

wheresthepath (1532) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2011
[Gravity cask at Chippenham Beer Festival] Ruby black, no head. Lots of coffee and smoke. Sweet at first, but with increasingly intense roasted malt flavour coming through that leaves a satisfyingly bitter finish. Excellent stout.

Bullit (4007) - Burgos, SPAIN - MAY 1, 2011
