imdownthepub (9623) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2013
Cask conditioned at York Beer Festival ’13. Black with cream head. Quite a chocolate note to this beer, bitter and dark, some huskiness, some baked grain notes. Lasting on the palate, pretty reasonable.

maeib (8391) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2013
Cask conditioned handpump White Horse London 03/05/13. A dark dark ruby coloured beer with a whitish head. A sweet and nutty beer. Some roasty malt and a bitter aftertaste. Chocolate gives it some sweetness and makes it feel a little un stout like. Feels a bit powdery like this kind of beer can but it’s reasonably tasty.

leaparsons (7794) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2013
Bottle. Very dark brown with little head. Aromas are earthy coffee with blackberry and medicinal, herbal notes. Smoky with some dark chocolate. Flavours are roast malts with cola and dark chocolate bitterness. Nutty with some citrus bitterness and a dry finish. Subtle chocolate, overall but a decent dry stout.

DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2012
500ml bottle. Beige-capped black becoming headless. Buttered charcoal, blackened fudge, Toffos and coal dust aroma. Burnt wood, burnt paper taste with black cherry, toffee and briny hints; some iron, burnt toast. A bit thin and lacking condition but pleasant enough.

larsga (5962) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 23, 2013
Medium beige head doesn’t last. Nearly opaque black body goes deep dark brown at edges. Roasty dusty chocolate aroma with toast notes. Dry-sweet roasty chocolatey earth taste with toast and toffee notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry roasty chocolatey honey aftertaste with earthy rye crisp bread notes. Lovely. Highly drinkable, full of flavour, and complex. Very harmonic, too. (0.5l bottle, from House of Trembling Madness, York.)

Cask-conditioned at the Gryphon, Bristol 1/3/2014. Jet black with a slight, off-white head. Big chocolate notes throughout, some toastiness and a dryish finish. Very good.
