chinchill (1617) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 5, 2014
On tap at True North in San Diego. Pour is essentially black and opaque with a very durable tan head. Fine sticky lacing. Aroma: Sweet malts with hints of caramel and some fruity and spicy aspects. Flavor: initally seems like it will be too sweet but soon becomes more balanced. Prudent use of vanilla. Good level of dark roasted grains with only faint burnt toast aspects. Lingering roasted grain flavor with a touch of vanilla. Feel: Low carbonation is just right. Very smooth. Full body. O: tasty and recommended.

BlackHaddock (3480) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2014
On my ’Stout Flight’ in The Hopping Pig, San Diego on 18th March 2014. Black with tanned coloured head. The aroma is roasted coffee, with nuts, milk chocolate and traces of liquorice. The taste is fairly sweet with malts giving very little bitterness. Body wise it is smooth and almost creamy, the finish trying to be a tad bitter but failing.

brokensail (10604) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 20, 2013
A very dark brown pour with a khaki head. Strong vanilla aroma, nice roasted malt, cocoa, and dark chocolate. Unfortunately, a bit watery. Good sweetness to the flavor. Some roasted malt, caramel, and plenty of vanilla. Chocolate flavor and a light cocoa bitterness. Still a bit watery in terms of the flavor, though it improves as it warms.
