I love this beer, it is all I want deep black colour is matched by itís taste and smell. The head vanishes quick but thatís of little consequence. Bought a number of these from B&M hope they get some more in

A good full bodied, creamy stout. A touch sweet and boozy. A delicious offering of dried fruit, chocolate and molasses.

shoestring (282) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - NOV 23, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2013 If a beer looks better then ive yet to see it. Black black black with slightest ruby tinge when held against light. Thick chocolate with faint vanilla cream in mouth. Impressive. Not too much aroma. Head thick for couple of minutes then slight lacing..thinner in mouth than expected from look and the abv. Nice one. Oily feel left in mouth. Cracker

scotty (1060) - SCOTLAND - FEB 16, 2014
Bottle, B&M. Another surprise find in B&M, lovely dark colour, thin head but lasts well. Good fresh malty nose, not as complex as Iíd expected. Lovely, well balanced palate, smooth and malty but with lots going on in the background, the finish is long lasting. Lovely brew!

BlackHaddock (4137) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2012
10 Sep 2011: "Brewed with raw cocoa, vanilla pods, flaked oats, wheat and a complex blend of beautifully dark malts", so says the front label of my 500ml bottle. Poured into a UK pint sleeve, this is a dark, dark Stout, deep ruby red when held up to a strong light force, otherwise itís black. The cream coloured head didnít stay, which was a pity, appearance score drops because of that. Dark chocolate and malt molasses dominate the aromas, rich and warming. The taste and flavours mirror the smell, so dark chocolate and molasses, add some coffee and toffee, but without the sweetness of the toffee and youíll be close to what Iím on about. Rich, nearly creamy and certainly full of flavour, this is a very good Stout. Couldnít find all the ingrediants listed on the label, but this is well worth finding and trying.

SarkyNorthener (2370) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2013
Bottle. Black with red hues in light, no lasting head. Aroma of powdered cocoa and roasted malt. The taste is of roasted malts, chocolate and some dark fruits. Medium bodied and lightly carbonated. A very nice stout.
