Brigadier (3325) - Clevelandish, Ohio, USA - SEP 1, 2013
12 ounce bottle
Thanks to leaparsons for giving me this excellent bottle. Another fantastic London brewery, this is the sort of thing that would have me ignoring other countries in favor of just drinking locally. If all English beers were this good I could see more of them moving on the shelves of American shops.

Aroma / Appearance - An oily black base pours like syrup into the glass. Thick creamy head crawls down the side like sheets of melting chocolate. Hazelnut, coffee, and licorice are a rich blend. Smoky chocolate hangs in the air. For the style this is perfect.

Flavor / Palate - Creamy and chewy chocolate sweeps across the tongue in waves. Each sip is a blend of coffee, bitter chocolate, and espresso beans. The thick finish coats the mouth but lacks the massive booziness of a big huge stout. This is a perfect way to finish up travels around Europe.

laiti (7742) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 30, 2013
33 cl bottle @ home. Bottled 12.03.2013, BBE 12.03.2016
Aroma is sweetish with cocoa notes and coffee. Flavour has salty licorice, soy sauce, herbal notes, coffee, tobacco and ash. Finishes with more herbs that turn into lingering bitterness. Rather good for a foreign stout.

SarkyNorthener (3332) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2013
Bottle. Black beer with medium off white head. Aroma of chocolate and a touch of lactose. Taste is burnt ash, chocolate, some dark fruits and some earth. medium bodied and a touch oily. I felt the burnt taste was too overpowering. I was a bit disappointed in this one. It was good but I was expecting a lot more.
