tightslice (959) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 19, 2016
Bottle from BevMo! in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is dark chocolate, slight coffee notes and some vanilla. Taste is a little tangy chocolate, then big creamy chocolate and smooth vanilla (a light touch) and a mild bitter cocoa finish. Really loved this one. Didn’t succumb to the typical artificial cocoa / vanilla / kid’s cereal vibes. Very composed...a great chocolate sweet stout.

Samtzu (190) - Palmerston North, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 24, 2016
650ml bottle. Pours a deep black with a light brown head. Considering its a stout it’s a rather light bodied beer. The milkeness comes through fantastically. Enjoyable to have in place of a bailey’s.

BlackHaddock (6336) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2016
On tap in the Churchill Cigar Lounge, 7th May 2016. Really liked this, black with a creamy head. Smooth and chocolatey with a rich body feel, vanilla and coffee esters vie with the chocolate flavours within the taste to give the beer extra interest and complexity.
