Keg at Brew Wharf, Borough Market. Black with a thick creamy head. Once it had warmed a little (still don’t understand why craft brewers kill their great flavours by serving the beer so cold) it was a lovely smooth stout with rich chocolate and roast malt flavours. The roasting hasn’t been overdone so it’s not bitter or burnt- it’s not sweet either- Goldilocks would no doubt think it was "just right" and the perfect accompaniment for the chocolate pud that the thieving cow was no doubt about to nick from poor baby bear. Very easy to drink, this goes down a treat. A lovely stout... oh, hang about, I’ve just gone to add my rating and I’m astonished to find it’s actually a schwarzbier. Would never have guessed, to think that a schwarz is a decent stout is a pretty good compliment for a schwarz I reckon (even if I was misled by the name!). Easily my highest rated schwarz to date.

Funny how it is an old Londonian stout and in the "meantime" a lager.... Anyway the beer isn’t bad. It had indeed a rich malty character of a typical stout with a bit dark fruit aroma to it. It mostly rich chocolate. Easy to drink with dairy and chocolate flavor. Aftertaste still dairy and a bit like milk chocolate in the background. Very mild taste overall.

Bottle from Waitrose, consumed at home. Dark brown with a creamy tan head. Coffee and liquorice on the nose, with hints of saltwater taffy and woodsmoke. Sweet creamy taste with hints of stone fruit, condensed milk and stewed vegetable in the finish. Fairly weak body. Above average all in all.
