oh6gdx (23612) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 31, 2015
Cask (backlog). Very deep reddish brown colour, close to black. Mediumsized creamy brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, toffee, some burnt wood, liquorice and caramel to it. Flavour is nutty, roasted malts, liquorice, chocolate, ripe fruits and mild toffee. A beauty, which is really nice and bold considering the abv too.

harrisoni (15792) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2008
Cask gravity at Reading BF 08. Slightly hoppy aroma. Black colour with dark brown edges. Intense malt aroma. That is a good stout. Good grainy choc and a lot of grapefruit hop. Just a great aroma. Intense flavours. Amazing and quite possibly my beer of the festival.

Leighton (15280) - 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.

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.

Theydon_Bois (14283) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2012
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.
