Bottle at home in London - picked up at Kris Wines...a long while ago. I inadvertently aged this one. I think its two to three years of age. It pours clear, dark brown with a frothy, light khaki head. The nose has lots of ashy roast, tobacco, burnt leaves, faint cocoa. Light sweet flavour with prominent ashy roast, some dry earth, torched tobacco leaves, bitter cocoa, leather. Light bodied with average carbonation. Dry and bitter on the finish, with more steady and sturdy ash, hard bitter cocoa, old espresso. Pretty OK overall, in that hard-edged ashy kind of way.

imdownthepub (13389) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2015
Cask conditioned at Beer Rebellion, Gipsy Hill, London. Dark brown with white head. Quite thinnish on the palate for a stout, reasonably bitter and dry, hints of cereal malt, some roasty notes. Its okay if bordering towards a mild.

From London Beer Market and drunk at home. black beer lasting tan head. Quite a coffeeish stout. In fact very coffeeish. Its quite tasty, could do with being a touch fuller in the mouth maybe. Some dryness on the finish. Its fine. Coffee is ok.

viktorvee (510) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2013
Cask at the wenlock. Expected a pale ale based on the name but instead got a hoppy, bitter stout. Hops to start, fading to a modest stout character, decent, some cocoa aroma.
