3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, this beer pours thick black, with a light brown medium head. Great aroma: coffee, with cream and sugar. If there is such a thing as a breakfast beer, this is it. It has a very rich flavor: mocha, toffee, hops. It is not my favorite stout, but it is very nice - worth a second - but you may want to save room - it is very filling.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Old-ish bottle. The aroma is soft, malty, biscuity, caramel, quite sweet for a stout. The flavour is smooth and creamy, very nice. The beer has no real defining character (it may have lost it with age/ transit), but it is a pleasant English stout; not too sweet, not too malty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a great dark brown with unsustainable dark tan head. Nose of molassis, a hint of alcohol, dark roast. Flavor reminds me of kahlua a little bit. Coffee, lactose, anise. Very impressed. I don’t usually care for this style, but this was not bad

Bottle @ The Rake, London.
Pours almost black with slight red edges. A great, creamy, light-beige head on top. Powerful aroma, good milky chocolate, almonds, roasted malts and a little coffee. Fine, lightly creamy mouthfeel. Sweet flavour, lots of milky chocolate and softly roasted malts. A fine, balanced dryness in the finish. Truly a very drinkable beer.

Creamy, roasted, chocolate, a hint of coffee in the end. Quite mild yet pleasant, could be a bit heavier on the body.
