weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle at home from The Bottle Stop. Certainly looks the part, big creamy medium brown head on a black body. Aroma isn’t quite what I was expecting, some nail varnish and funky farmyard behind the chocolate. Flavour is bitter chocolate, malts, finish is quite dry and bitter. Not bad.

planky84 (2143) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2012
Bottle from Mr Lawrence Wine Merchants, Brockley. Black pour with a tan head. Dark chocolate and vanilla aroma. Smooth chocolate flavour with hints of caramel and raisin. Rather enjoyed this one.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 26, 2012
Cask-conditioned, enjoyed @Euston Tap, London. Pours entirely black, with a thin brown lace on top. Cocoa aroma, dryish with burnt tones. Smooth on the palate, juicy mouthfeel. Dry cocoa/coffee flavored. Firm sharp bitterness. Burnt dark malts linger in the finish. Solid stuff.

Svesse (6296) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2012
(Cask at Euston Tap, Euston, London, 22 April 2012) Black colour with brief, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of coffee, chocolate and liquorice. Malty, roasted taste with chocolate, cocoa, coffee, liquorice and hints of ashes and tar. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness and a generous cocoa bitterness. Very tasty with a lovely chocolate character. Excellent beer.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2013 Cask conditioned air dispense Euston Tap London. A black beer with an off-white head. A smooth silky milky stout. Chocolate notes rather than roast. Tastes its strength but still very palateable. Some sweet fruitiness too. Good. Score 3.9
Subsequent rating scored 3.7. Average becomes 3.8

On tap at the Euston Tap. Opaque black - brown beer, tidy tan head. Smooth palate, a little dry. A sprinkle of fine carbonation. Smooth dry dark malt, tangy with a streak of bitter coffee. Dark chocolate, well buried. Whisper of pin. Dry finish with dark malt bitterness. Okay.

Leighton (11876) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2012
Cask at the Euston Tap, London. Pours black with a small, bubbly beige head. Aroma holds modest roast and some bitter dark chocolate, along with subtle burnt grass notes. Flavor is pretty nice, plenty of roast, some smoke, ham, soil, understated cocoa, minerals. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Pretty dry and roasty to finish with enough sugar to keep it from being overly dry. Some baking cocoa, salty minerals, burnt wood, earth, lingering roast. A very decent beer from Pitfield. Certainly one of the better ones I’ve had from the brewery.
