EFC1878 (315) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, - JAN 17, 2012
Bottle from Tesco. Very dark brown, almost black with an attractive beige head; decent lacing. Roasted and chocolate malt aroma. Sweetish taste with bitter roast malt finish. Too thin bodied for my taste. Marstons brew worse beers, though, to be fair.

Bottle at the Black horse Pub -- Really good stout, on the sweeter side. Unknown after reading the bottle, if this was actually an Oyster Stout with real oysters.

jamaty (1162) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 17, 2015
Negra, espuma rojiza. Aroma a chocolate, con algo de frutas. Y sabor también, más complejo (tostado, chocolate, fruta roja) de predominio dulce pero con amargor final típico de las stout. Buena de principio a fin. Redonda en boca. Y sobre todo super bebible ya que es muy ligera y en este caso es una virtud.

mR_fr0g (5253) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2015
Bottle picked up from Morrison’s Minehead. Aroma is nice earthy nut roast, little coal, little milky. Mahogany brown coloured pour with a fading mid tan head. Flavour is composed of mellow nutty roast, red berry, powdered choc, little tart red berry. Good balance. Palate is medium light, moderate carbonation. Little milky.

Bendrixian (1323) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2015
pours jet black. Has a light brine note with some toast. Fairly smooth and sports a fast profile. Not as aggressive as some other ones i’ve had but hey that also isn’t a bad thing.

bardzo dobry stout, w kolorze ciemny, goryczka dość wyczuwalna, nuty kawowe i czekoladowe, zgadzam się z czlowiekwiadro :D

czlowiekwiadro (384) - POLAND - MAY 23, 2015
zapach dość delikatny, ale przyjemny. palone słody, kawa, kawa zbożowa, trochę śmietany. kolor czarny, głęboki, nieprzejrzysty. piana brązowa, średnio obfita, szybko opada, ale zostawia cienką, dość trwałą warstwę. w smaku pełny, ale nie słodki, palony, popiołowy. nuty kawy i palonego jęczmienia i przypalonego karmelu. goryczka stosunkowo wysoka, głównie palona, z ziołowymi akcentami, długa, przyjemna. ma lekko metaliczny posmak, ale nie jest to wada. nasycenie zdecydowanie wysokie, może nawet zbyt wysokie. bardzo dobry stout, choć z oyster stoutem nic wspólnego nie ma.

eveningdrinks (7) - - MAY 21, 2015 does not count
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2015 Fruity-caramel aroma, Appearance is very dark, almost black, with little quickly dissipating light brown foam. Tastes of chocolate,caramel, easy to drink, smooth, kind of watery but the flavours still remain clearly expressed and leave a nice mildly bitter aftertaste. Liked it a lot, easy to drink, satisfying flavours, I recommend it.
