tombyars (1332) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - OCT 11, 2013
Tasted this at the Troon Beer Festival in October 2013. Cask, gravity dispense. Dull black in colour with a thin tan head. Strong, sweet aroma of burnt treacle toffee, long in the intensity. Lovely smooth creamy mouthfeel and poor lacing. Dark malt complex gives a rich maltloaf base with notes of creamy treacle toffee, mocha coffee and dark bournville chocolate. There is an earthy hop prickle in the aftertaste but the barley grain dominates in the mouth. Finish is malty with smooth roast grain flavours coming through, with liquorice and burnt molasses notes to the fore. Superb stout and for me, this was the best stout at the Troon BF - highly recommended.

jjsint (627) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2013
Cask at Bedford Beer Festival, 2013. Very dark brown, almost black. little head. Very sweet aroma. Vanilla and candyfloss. Fruity sweetness at first in the taste, then a dry bitter finish comes from nowhere. Bitter aftertaste. Interesting but bitter/sweet dichotomy too extreme. Better stouts to be had.

Leighton (10466) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2013
Bottle at home in London - many thanks to BlackHaddock for trading me this one! Pours clear, deep red-brown with a large, frothy mocha cap. Once it recedes, it leaves considerable lacing on the glass, for what itís worth. Lots of milk chocolate in the aroma, moderate roasted malts, some dark bread. Medium sweet flavor, some semi-dried molasses, toasted bread, light milk chocolate, subtle bitter earth, some stones, soft roast. Light to medium bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Sweet finish with more moderate molasses and milk chocolate, low roast, mild lacto notes, a bit of char, earth, burnt wood, burnt marshmallows, some dark fruits. Just the absolute faintest hints of tangy dark malts in the aftertaste. Pretty solid stuff right here. Lots of nuance.

[cask, Cloisters Bar, Edinburgh] Pours black with a thin, cream-coloured head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, toasted bread and some liquorice. More liquorice on the flavour, but plenty of the roasted chocolate and coffee. Some alcohol on the finish. Very nice indeed [02112012]

Dr_Butty (87) - SCOTLAND - MAY 17, 2012
Tweedies, Grasmere. Pours black, pale head. Modest aroma of roasted malt, but the flavour starts with a hint of sweetness and develops to a full roast coffee and chocolate flavour. Dry hoppy finish. Love this stuff.

BlackHaddock (3480) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2012
This bottled conditioned beer was bought at the brewery tap in a mixed box of three. Brown 500ml bottle, best before August 2010, drank and reviewed on a damp and boring evening in July 2010, just two weeks of life left then! The first beer in my Stout tasting evening (of three). Poured into a pint sleeve, carefully trying not to shift too much sediment. The beer was a solid black colour, the head a huge foaming canopy of a deep tanned hue. Burnt malts hit the nose, the taste is also very much a burnt, yet fairly sweet malted flavour. The beer drys in the mouth very quickly and the sweetness fades away as it drys too. Liquorice and chocolate hints appear latter in the mouthfeel, but heavily roasted/burnt malts dominate throughout the beer. The alcohol content isnít really noticed, the richness and depth of flavours mask it very well. I hope the next two Stouts are as good as this version.
