Lovely rich roasty aroma. Black, with a persistent tan head. Great roast, so mellow, so full. Palate is really full, rich, and, erm, full. Classic UK stout. I really really like this!

Theydon_Bois (10655) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2012
Cask at the Cask, Pimlico - 11/09/12. Very dark brown approaching black with a thin dirty mocha head which retained well. Dark roasted malts on the nose and a good amount of coffee. Taste matches, lots of roast malt and coffee allied to some molasses and licqourice. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation leading to a dry finish. Great stout and one to revisit.

evergreen0199 (2203) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2012
Cask at Euston Tap, London. A black coloured pour with a healthy beige head on top. Roasty, malty aroma. Tastes roasty, malty, some coffee and chocolate, fruity and a pleasant bitterness. A quite superb rich tasting stout which I will definitely seek out again.

planky84 (2248) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2012
Bottle from Mr Lawrence Wine Merchants, Brockley. I cast my ’Angel Eyes’ over this brew and noticed a black pour with a tan head. Smoke, chocolate and coffee aroma. Coffee, raisin and chocolate flavour. Certainly not a ’Trash’ beer. Dry, sweet finish. May grow ’Stronger Through the Years’. Certainly one to ’Dance Away the Heartache’. This pun-some/over egging the pudding presentation was brought to you by Planky84 with invaluable help from a certain Mr Ferry.

DruncanVeasey (7351) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2012 Live rate. Bottle from Alexander Wines, Coventry. Glossy black with a filthy grey-tan cap going nowhere. Cool label, too: bonus point. Smells like burnt liquorice, scraped toast, Neopolitan ice cream, passing locomotive. Outstanding, deeply roasted, high cocoa melted in espresso taste reminiscent of a Struise or De Molen imperial twice as strong....great to get that intensity of flavour without the burn of alcohol. Maybe some softly spoken US hop presence in there, too. Dabs of blackberry and nosebleed. Beautiful.
