Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 27, 2010
Cask at the Battersea Beer Festival, 10th Feb 2010. Near black. Little bit of tan head. Musty, stale coffee nose with a bit of hops. Dry at the start and maybe actually lacking a malty punch. I liked it though and would definitely drink it again.

A Mes rate: Gravicask at Battersea Beer Festival.
Totally balck and opaque with a thin bubbly head. Coffee, dark malt and lovely rich and bitter dark chocolate. Nice but its just not quite tarry and oily enough and the mouthfeel is a little on the thin side. Decent stuff but could be a lot better.

Note: Salamander also brew another stout (Black Stuff) that is also 4.5%. BeerMad lists these as different beers and they taste different to me.. Black stout. Straight up stoutish aroma. Slightly sweet to taste with subtle darjeeling notes.

Very deep, dark, brown colour. Roasted, coffee tinged, aroma, although its quite subtle. Fairly dry, with bitter chocolate in the flavour. Not particularly full bodied, but very pleasant. Cask (gravity dispense), Battersea Beer Festival, February 2005.
