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 (14447) - 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 (13979) - 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 (1662) - 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 (3169) - 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.

tkrjukoff (4172) - SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2010
Nice dark color with good head. Good aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and caramel. A bit too "watery" for me for a stout with little carbonation. Flavor is like aroma and the aftertaste lsats quite a while which is nice.

downender (6954) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2011 Cask-conditioned at the Portcullis, Clifton, Bristol 28/02/10. Near black with a slight, off-white head. Aroma of dark chocolate, leafy hops and roasted malts. Easy drinking, with plenty more chocolate, black coffee and a hoppy, dry finish. Excellent [3.7]. Rerate 15/03/11 at the Three Tuns, Bristol. Thinner on this occasion with the hops perhaps too prominent. [3.3]

wyzzywyz22 (2102) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2010
Cask, Marble Arch Inn. Deep dark brown/black colour with minimal tan head. Aroma and flavour had a healthy dose of leafy hop mixed with roasted malts and dark chocolate. Some nice juicy fruitiness evident here also with some drying bitterness. Really tasty stout guv.

Ungstrup (30392) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2009
Cask at Marble Arch Inn, Manchester. A pitch black beer with a thin brown head. The aroma has notes of sweet and roasted malt as well as light notes of soy sauce. The flavor is sweet with notes of soy sauce, roasted malt, and chocolate, leading to a dry roasted finish. The body is very light.
