maeib (8576) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2006
Cask conditioned - handpump - Cambridge BF. A black stout with a frothy tan coloured head. The aroma is roasty and there’s a lactic quality. There is also a little smoke. The taste is a little lactic with a touch of roast. Again drinkable but too thin and dull.

jercraigs (7456) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2009
2009-05-15. Black body with a smooth khaki brown head. Flavour is pleasant, mild bitter roast throughout, sweet chocolate touches up front fade out. Aroma is surprisingly mild primarily showing very mild roast malt. Smooth creamy palate is lighter than I would prefer, but weightier than a Guinness. (3+) Decent stout. On tap at the brewpub.

sebletitje (6582) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 8, 2011
Draft @ Messrs, Dublin. Brune, col ivoire; Arôme malt grillé, biscuité avec fine touche houblonnée. Palais est léger, présentant aussi ce profile malté et grillé alliant une légère présence de malt fumé. Sec en bouche, une fine amertume de torréfaction est détectée avec une bière qui reste bien axée sur le malt grillé.

KyotoLefty (6145) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 20, 2010
Draught at the Brewery in Dublin. Dry, well roasted stout with lots of coffee and a touch of cocoa. Very dry and flavorful. A very typical, but well-made dry stout.

downender (6134) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2009
Cask-conditioned at the Hillgrove Porter Stores, Bristol 19/03/09. Opaque black in colour, with a big, frothy, dark tan head. Aroma of roasted malts and milk chocolate. Light mouth feel, with plenty of coffee flavour, some caramel, and the lactic edge mentioned by others in the finish. Enjoyable.

larsga (6120) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2008
Medium brown-beige shiny creamy everlasting head. Opaque black body, barely dark red-brown at edges. Roasty burnt vanilla and caramel aroma with coffee notes. Dry burnt roasty milky coffee taste with spicy caramelly notes. Long, lingering aftertaste with an emphasis on the burntness, with notes of licorice. Some pepper and spice, too. Mild mouthfeel. Nice, but not too special. (0.3l draft at the brewpub.)

KnutAlbert (6013) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 13, 2006
On tap at the brewpub. By far the best beer on offer. Fine roasted malt aroma. A bit watery, some more strength could possibly hawe drawn out more flavour.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2006
Aroma is light sweet roasted malts and a touch of coffee. Taste is similarly drinkable and nothing to complain about.

Braudog (5578) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Draft pint at the brewpub.Standard look, black with firm white top. Smooth like most stouts around here, but with a nice extra bitter edge. Slightly ashy. (#3675, 9/16/2009)

[2143-20090515] Tap. Faint fruity dark chocolate aroma. Black body with a thick long-lasting creamy tan head. Coffee grounds and sweet chocolate notes in the flavour with lots of yeast and mild plastic. Full body. Nice and stouty.
