BeerViking (4195) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2013
Pours a reddish black with a fine beige head. Coffee and choc on the nose, slightly sweetish, body a bit flat as it was over-sparkled but otherwise good, with more coffee and plum notes and a dry roast bitter finish. (Rating from 23-Mar-2011 moved here as it was originally wrongly under the bottled version.)

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 30, 2011
Cask at the Wandsworth Common Beer Festival, 25th March 2011, 4.1% as ChrisO notes. Deep brown with a line of cream head. Burnt notes on the nose and a nice roasted edge to the flavour but quite a thin, slightly watery palate.

Cask (gravity dispense) at Wandsworth Common Beer Festival @ Le Gothique on 25 March 2011 (noted at 4.1%). Itís not often that Shepherd Neame ventures on to the dark side so I was pleased to be able to try this. I donít know whether this represents a change of direction (they do seem to be bottling this for export at least) or is just a short run special from their in house microbrewery as Shepherd Neame donít bother to mention it on their website. Very dark colour with a thin, but lasting, beige head. Strong roast malt on the nose. Dry and a little dusty on the palate. A sprinkling of powdery cocoa. More roast notes with some burnt bitterness. Firm, very dry mouthfeel. Maybe not he most exciting stout but itís a solid, drinkable stout that Iíd be happy to return to.

CamdenD (1181) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 25, 2011
Quarter cask at Cerveceria Europa in Madrid. Nice dry stout with good body. Mostly unremarkable, but in a good way. Extremely drinkable and not cloying at all.

harrisoni (17337) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2010
Cask handpull at The Bishops Finger, Canterbury. Black, with brown edges, lasting cream head. Decent dry stout, lots of burnt roast malt on finish. Aroma of choc and roast malt. Very burnt and roast with some body but the burnt malt dominates just a touch too much. But still really good and I sank a pint in 5 mins no problem. Brewed for St Patricks Day 2010
