Cask at White Horse Parsons Green, Old Ale Festival - 23/11/12. Mid black with a thin tan head that quickly recedes to the edge and forms a film atop the glass. Nose is roast malt, dark fruit, molasses. Taste comprises bitter chocolate, light hops, roast malts, molasses. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, quite a bitter finish for a stout. Decent enough.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 13, 2011
On cask at The Stagg’s Beer Festival, 2011. Pours a dark brown colour with a fair tan head. Aroma of roasty malt and hops. Similar flavours. Mild carbonation and the mouth-feel is a little oily. Very nice!

MiP (13723) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - APR 6, 2011
Cask, 4.7% at the brewpub. Roasted aroma, a bit of iron as if from raw beef. Black colour. Stable light brown head. Coffee flavour - clean and cold. Without any unpleasant bitterness. Round coffee flavour, hint of cream. Has a little bit of grassy, biting hop in the finish.

Leighton (11587) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2011
Cask at Euston Tap. Dark brown pour with a dense, creamy beige head. Lots of citrusy hops on the nose with some ashy, roasty malts. Medium sweet, some juicy, resinous bitterness, light burnt wood, mild tobacco. Medium bodied with good, on-the-money average carbonation. A bit of sticky hops to finish, piney, good bit of roast and charred wood. Fantastic.

Gary (1415) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2011
(cask @ the Magpie & Crown, Brentford) Had this for breakfast on Saturday morning after a 12 mile run: Pretty good for a low boozed stout. A glass of sinister blackness has a roasty malt , chocolaty and creamy vibe. Lotta roasted chocolate bitterness is imprintiing on my palate ; Pretty plesant @ 11.25 .am in the morning.

BeerViking (2622) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2011 Maybe a bit lacking in condition but still good, loads of cocoa on nose, then dry roast malt with cocoa and grassy hop notes, plus maybe a hint of ginger and liquorice. Really bitter-roast finish and a lingering dry aftertaste.
