Lambister (452) - - NOV 16, 2012
50 cl bottle. Clear, dark brown colour with a dense medium-sized tanned foamy head. Roasted malty aroma with notes of chocolate. Moderately roasty bitter flavour, light bodied with a slightly sharp carbonation. Quite slim, roasty bitter finish. Light-bodied but still tasty.

BeerNinjaUK (317) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2016
Bottle from Waitrose. Pours rich dark brown, the body looks like Coke, but with a bubbly beige head. Aroma is weak and somewhat flat, with some wheat, coffee, also a bit of earth and cardboard (although not unpleasant). Rather watery in texture. Somewhat refreshing for a stout.

WaddlingPlatypus (128) - Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2016
500ml bottle. Dark umber, pours with an off-white head. Weak aroma of malt. Similarly weak, the flavour is of burnt malt, with an slight aftertaste not unlike the scent of a freshly-painted room. Odd, to say the least. EDIT: having sampled a second bottle, the paint-like aftertaste is no longer present, having been replaced by a faint milkiness. Much more agreeable than an aftertaste of primer! (taste score raised from 5 to 7)

LazyPyro (599) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2015
500ml bottle. Very dark brown almost black colour. Small tan brown head doesn’t last long. Aroma seems a bit weak but there’s definitely a roasted coffee/malt, a little chocolate. Flavour is pretty much the same, roasted malts, a bit of coffee and/or chocolate too but mostly in the aftertaste. Pretty nice beer, just feels a little weak compared to similar beers.

MarcinG (485) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2015
Butelka. Ciemno brazowe prawie czarne. Piana srednia palona szybko opadajaca. W zapachu chmiele palone i kawowe nuty. Smak dominuje kawa.karmel i lekko chlebowy posmak. Swietne piwo.

JonWhitakerr (16) - Harrogate, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2015
Appearance-Extremely lively head that stays for ages! The beer is a deep caramel/coca cola colour, with very mild carbonation, and good lacing around the glass Aroma-Some roasted coffee notes escape through the thick head. A stale bread and yeasty smell is also present. Alcohol is present, but a little unpleasant smelling Taste-Sweet with a bitter note developing. Quite well rounded and smooth down the throat. Some flat coffee notes developing as well. Milk chocolate present when lapped over tongue. Burnt notes aswell Palate-Soft and a little oily. Coats the roof of the mouth. Abrupt finish however, leaving a whisper of bitterness. Very easy drinking Overall-A decent pint to session, especially with the relatively low alcohol, but for a craft stout, it leaves a little to be desired, especially in taste
