Towey1989 (526) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2015
Cask at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. A black colour with a foamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and some smoke. Taste of roasted malts, coffee, some chocolate, some cookie, subtle blackberry and some smoke. Medium bodied and a creamy texture. A creamy, roasted, chocolate bitterness in the finish. Initially a standard stout but creamy and roasty, very pleasant.

Bottle at home. Prefer this on Cask though. Poured a clear dark mahogany brown with deep beige head that cleared. Aroma of roasted malts and smokey chocolate. Taste of roasted coffee, cocoa, chocolate, smokey hints. One of my favourite stouts.

Smaskifa (136) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 12, 2015
Bottle at Culloden House, Culloden. Nice pitch dark with a decent head. Pretty roasted on the nose, chocolate, coffee, some nuts and liquorice. Much of the same as you drink, very well balanced with a slight bitterness at the end. Nice palate, a good level of carbonation and not as smooth as many of the British beers. Easy to drink, will drink again.

Hand-pulled pint in Kay’s Bar, Edinburgh on 26th Oct 2014. Black body, tanned head. The aroma was caramel and chocolate with dark fruits, the taste was also leaning towards caramel maltiness again with chocolate, coffee and dark fruits, some liquorice and vanilla in there too. Decent.
