Theydon_Bois (6994) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2014
Bottle, from Hogs Back shop, at JF’s house decoration bash 22/02/14. Light black with a moderate tan covering. Nose is roast malt, cocoa powder, light spice, touch of vanilla. Taste comprises burnt toffee, light roast, cocoa powder, dark fruit twang. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, a little on the watery / thin side. Ok stout, easy drinker, perhaps a little thin for the ABV.

maeib (8391) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2014
Cask conditioned handpump Seven Stars Rugby 01/02/14. A black beer with a whitish loose head and good lace. A good dry roasty stout. A welcoming nose and great dry flavours. Restrained bitterness. Rich with good chocolate and coffee mélange. Good stuff.

Leighton (9838) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2014
Cask at the Lyric - Soho, London. Pours dirty brown with a large, lasting beige froth head. The nose holds earth, wet tobacco ash and milk chocolate. Light sweet flavor with lots of gritty ash, tobacco, abrasive charred leaf bitterness. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Poor condition. More ashy roast to finish, bitter cocoa, burnt wood, dirt. I fear this might be the end of a cask that has been pouring for a bit. Not much to like here. A pretty unpleasant drink.

Scopey (5520) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2014
Cask at Lyric Soho. It pours deep ruby-brown with a medium beige head. The nose is roasted malt, cocoa, coffee and burnt notes. The taste is roasted malt, pepper, toast, ash, burnt notes, coffee and mild acidity with a very dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Not a whole lot going on really. A run of the mill stout.

berkshirejohn (4204) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2009
Cask at the Nags Head, Reading. Brownish-black with a ruby red tint and soapy cream head; wholemeal toast aroma; smooth and syrupy - stewed plums with traces of smoke and bitter chocolate; leaving a warming finish. Very pleasant.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2008
A Mes rate: Gravicask at Sussex Beer Festival.
Very dark red brown with a thin white rim. Malty darkness on the nose but nothing too special. Reasonable malt and hop balance but just a little boring. Tea in the finish doesn’t help it out any. Dull.

Finn (3759) - Tromsř, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2008
Cask at The Market Porter London Bridge 5 Feb 08. Dark mahogany colored. A lasting creamy head. Inviting aroma of dark coffee and chocolate. Flavor of dark fruits. Dry bitter finish. A "different" stout.

RoyceH (1196) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - FEB 10, 2008
Cask, Market Porter, London. Dark ruby black, thin off-white head. Nose is clinical and burnt malt, some weird grainy infected tones. Mouth is talc dry and some summer fruit with lots of lactic maltiness. Quite light bodied and dry but in an icing sugar way. Sweet and roasted, but alright.
