Rossbear (17) - Wendover, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2014
Pints of in various Samuel Smith's establishments around Central London, apart from being often served Guinness stylee (ie too bloody cold...) I find this to be a wonderful nitro style stout. there is a good base of roast (almost burnt) and layers of liquorice and coffee. I love this beer and recommend it to anyone who isn't already bored of my Beer talk. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

viktorvee (510) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2013
Very nice dry stout, some cocoa flavour and pleasing dryness, good one. It’s possible to have a couple.

Vladivostok (215) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2013
Jet black with a creamy white head. Bitter with roast flavours and a far from thin body. Very more-ish. The beer Guinness would have been if the accountants hadn’t got hold of it.

McWorta (482) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 22, 2013
Black with a dark mahagony colour and a tan head. Noses lightly of roasted malts and wood. Rather flat, light slick/oily in texture and full bodied. Medium sweet and lightly bitter. Finish is well balanced and has its momentum.

Niall73 (1054) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2013
Keg. Dark browny black. Not a massive aroma, some malts and a touch of coca cola. Medium bodied, with a slight fizz on the tongue and nice coffee, choc bitterness. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jimmythespoon (438) - CYPRUS - MAY 20, 2013
Full creamy nitro head. Dry finish, roasty taste and aroma. Pretty good beer.

stravale (1889) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - MAY 16, 2013
Keg @ Doocot, Edinburgh [160513]
Very dark brown black, dense nitro tan head, some lacing
Aroma of dry roasted malts, some roasted barley, not a lot on the nose
Taste of dry roasted malts, quite bitter roast, some dark chocolate malts with a dab of dark sweet malts
Palate - Soft carb, medium body, fairly bitter palate. Finish as main flavour with a fairly dry bitter roast tail and some bitter chocolate.
Overall - This is superior to Guinness, more flavour and a bit stronger. Maybe the finish is a tad over bitter.
