The_Osprey (6356) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2016
Cask HP at The Crosse Keys Bishopsgate as ’Mauldons Black Adder’, no abv stated. This is an old classic, so pleased to catch up with it - and only just came on so in perfect nick. Black with a red hue, foamy brown head. Aroma is dark chocolate, plum jam, roast, quite fruity. Body is fairly light, smooth with tingly carbonation for cask. Taste is milky chocolate, plum, earthy, light metallics, roast. Very drinkable with an interesting character. I can see why it was so highly regarded back in the day. Good but nothing too special by today’s standards.

gegwilson (3207) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2015
Bottle from a Suffolk Waitrose. Pours almost black with a ruby tinge and some cream froth that fades to almost nothing quite quickly. Roast malt aroma with a hint of liquorice. The taste is treacle, liquorice and chocolate along with some very light spice. Low carbonation and light body make this pretty easy drinking. A pleasant stout.

Kita (1900) - Koper, SLOVENIA - FEB 17, 2015
Bottle, 0.50l, shared with colleagues. Pitch black color with thin creamy light brown head and nice lacing. Aroma of heavily roasted malt, smoke, charcoal and leather. Taste starts with light sweet but rich roasted malt with nutty note, following is smoky and mild fruity, mouthfeel is dry, while finish is mild bitter. Medium body, creamy texture and soft carbonation in palate. This one was incredibly hard to drink, smoke and leather notes were too strong...
