tombyars (1579) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 13, 2012
Tasted this in the Fox & Hounds, Houston in May 2004. Cask, handpump dispense. Dull black in colour with ruby highlights and a thin buff creamy white head. Slight whiff of burnt toast in the short aroma. Thin oily mouthfeel and good lacing. Dark malts give a burnt toast and chocolate powder flavours which rapidly fade to reveal sweet notes of soft caramel and juicy blackcurrant fruit. Dusty hop prickle present in the very short aftertaste. Finish is malty with dry cask notes coming through. An ok session mild and well recommended.

worldbeertaste (1795) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2011 Ruby dark, almost black in colour with thick tan head. Light roast coffee, nut and sweet malt smell. Smooth. Starts a little sweet but has bitter mid and no aftertaste. Caramel, nut, smokey, malt and an end of coffee. Clean. Just seems a little watery.

Ungstrup (33990) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2011
Cask at GBBF 2010. A brown beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of roasted malt, leading to a very dry roasted finish - almonst burnt.

Beersiveknown (4974) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JUL 16, 2011
Dark black beer with little discernible aroma and beige head. Plenty of chocolate in the medium body and a roast cocoa finish.

BartC (727) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - JUN 16, 2011
Cask at White House; Greenpark Londen. Black colored stout with a very small head. Aroma and taste of roasted malts, coffee and notes of dark fruit. Creamy and balanced stout.

BeerViking (3982) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2011
UPDATED: APR 17, 2012 Pours a deep red-black with a big coarse yet fluffy beige head. Some aroma of roast coffee, prunes and old wine, clean and chewy on the palate with an initial smooth hint of chocolate giving way to more roast coffee and malt and then caramelised roasted nuts, and finally emerging into a nutty roast-bitter finish. Gorgeous.

greenmanalishi (519) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2010
Handpump, Sandbar, Manchester. A divisive one, but I lean towards the positive. Dark, roasted malts, tobacco, dry, treacley nuttiness too.

Leighton (18030) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2010
Cask at the White Horse Pub, London. Pours brown with a modest, off-white head. Lightly roasted malts in the aroma with faint mocha. Flavor is modestly sweet with notes of ash, cocoa and tobacco, along with a fair amount of dry bitterness. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Finishes is lightly dry with lingering, dark and roasted malts. Not bad.
