Leighton (15396) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2011
Cask at Pigs Ear 2011, London. Pours dark brown with a fine, beige head. Moderate roast and rich chocolate aroma. Delicious flavor, rich and creamy chocolate, medium roast, some dry earth. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Semi-dry finish, light mocha, chocolate chips, short bitter cocoa. Quite excellent. At first I thought this brewery was a bit cocky, but after having this beer they have some license.

BeerCast_Rich (1905) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 18, 2011
[cask at Cloisters, Edinburgh] Black stout, with a decent cream-coloured head from the sparkler. Roasted, malty nose with a slightly nutty element. Very dry on the palate, lovely toasted malt flavours, some ashy tobacco on the dry finish. Had three pints of this, I was so impressed. Takes some balls to call yourself the Outstanding Brewery (unless there’s another meaning) – but based on this beer they pulled it off [14102011]

On cask at Cloisters. A black beer with a thick tan head. Aroma of roasty malt, chocolate and caramel. Nicely bitter with similar flavours and a long bitter, roasted malt linger. Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Very nice.

greenmanalishi (506) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2011
Very good stuff. Tobacco-ish, dry-roasted, dry, bit of nut, coffee, little oily in texture (would have preferred something thicker/creamier so this was a slight down mark) but a very good, and robust all-round stout.

Alphadelic (1975) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 6, 2010
Loose head. Some nice roast but rather predictable on the nose. Very tingly and bitter. I quite like it for the drinkabilty. Something of a dark IPA to it. Green and tingly.
