jmgreenuk (3563) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle from Connolly’s Wines, Solihull. Poured a dark mahogany with a thin tan short-lived head. The aroma is of butter and malt. The flavour is medium bitter with liquorice, chocolate and a creamy, fruity, smooth palate. One of the nicest stouts I’ve tasted for sure. Well done Ludlow!

TickerTerryDJ (633) - Redditch, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2012
Hand pulled at Seven Stars,Kidderminster.This is a good looking near black beer sporting a smallish tan head.A dark chocolate aroma appears firest off followed by a smokyey nutty smell.In the taste the chocolate is joined by licquorice and coffee.Roasted malt is present throughout.This is a pleasant easy drinking beer but as stouts go i prefer a thicker,heavier body.That said,this is on quite often at the Stars and i usually sample one.

DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2012
Bottle: one of Octo’s ’sharing bottles’. Deep pitch with a dirty cream collar. Rusted iron, Bovril, shellfish, big dollop of butter in black coffee aroma. Buttered rust, rust-sprinkled black coffee with dunked burnt paper flavour. Thin, rusty and schwarz-like. Not without interest.

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2012
Hand pulled half pint at The Cock Hotel, Wellington Nov 2011: a well known real ale pub in Shropshire. Lovely dark body, almost jet black: on top a thin head of tan coloured foam, the head staying as it left lacing down the glass. Sweet chestnuts roasting over an open fire? Well almost, it did have a roasted nutlike aroma with some dark chocolate stirred in. The taste was a good blend of flavours, that dark chocolate again, some liquorice and malty molasses, all very slightly smoked. Not a sweet stout, but although it had a dry finish you wouldn’t call it a bitter stout either, an in between one then! Body could have been richer and deeper, but at 4.5% ABV it held its own, just. A pleasant night cap on the evening it was reviewed, not sure I’d have a session on it though.

Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol 7/09/2011. Near black with a slight tan head. Dark chocolate and roasted malt aroma with a touch of fruit. Easy drinking, with more chocolate, liquorice and a dryish finish. Good.
