A brown beer with a red shine under a thick light brown head. The aroma is sweet roasted combined with notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with a strong roasted character, and the mouthfeel is very smooth. Nice.

Old Anchor, Tower Bridge. Clear but very dark brown beer. Good luxuriant cream coloured head. Palate is soft and dry. Dry dark malt with dry roasty bitterness. Offset by estery bubblegum and a little malt cream. The bitterness in the dry finish is both roast malt and hops. A robust low stout for it’s abv.

Black color, creamy head. Quite good Stout, mixing a fairly strong roasted malt character with a creamy touch. The final has a sharp roasted malt in it. Good.

Leighton (15306) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2010
Tap at Bricklayers Arms. Pours black with a creamy, off-white head. Roasted malt aroma with faint cocoa. Flavor is lightly sweet, roasty with some tobacco and char, along with mild smoked bacon. There is a subtle bitterness as well. Medium in body with fine carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. Finishes roasty with lingering smokiness and mild dryness. Flavor seems a bit sharp at times, but overall I found it very good.
