What a wonderful stout. It pours a thick black colour and has the most wonderful aroma of dark chocolate, cream and I’d even say some liquorish. It’s a very sweet stout, I love it!

jjsint (1397) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2015
Bottle from Tesco. Impenetrable black with a wispy tan head. Malt, roast coffee, buttered toast, ash in the aroma. Sweet taste which slowly dissipates, leaving the tastebuds to ponder the lingering hoppy bitterness in the back of the tongue. A real find, and this brewery’s best. A welcome change from the unfortunate string of mediocre beers I’ve had of late!

willisread (829) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 20, 2015
500ml bottle from Masuyo’s in Asagaya. Poured into a stemmed tulip. Blackberry colored with a nice tan head that dissipates fairly quickly. Nice dark cacao, burned coffee and cabernet wine present with a hint of bitterness also noticeable. Mouthfeel is somewhere between oily and creamy. Not much carbonation. Nice long semi-sweet finish with a bit of alcohol taste as well. Really nice stout.

monk191 (1289) - California, USA - FEB 6, 2015
A fine stout, nothing special. Pours an inky black with a quickly dissipating head. Smells of chocolate, cream soda and vanilla. Taste is basic, some chocolate and a dry finish. Had in the bottle.

Alengrin (3235) - BELGIUM - JAN 31, 2015
My first sample from this classic English brewery. From a stubby 50 cl bottle. Opaque black beer under a creamy, medium thick, light beige head largely consisting of minute bubbles. Aroma has more cookie dough than roastedness, almost like a Scotch; brown sugar, bayleaf, liquorice, iron, biscuit, freshly baked cake, raisins, chalk, Belgian chocolates having passed their best before date, subtle coffee powder appearing when it warms up a bit, tobacco, dried leaves. Malty taste profile; some candied fruit sweetness in the onset, dates and raisins, medium carbonation; then mostly caramelly malts with some ’chocolateness’, metallic ’sound’, fluffy and thick, but not too oily mouthfeel, finish of leafy hop bitterishness, lingering caramelly maltiness and some gentle roasted bitterness, but not too coffee-like. Body could be thicker, or at least more ’fatty’. Ordinary, acceptable dry stout, with indeed a creamy feel to it but scoring a bit (too) low in the roasted bitterness department; nothing bafflingly complex, but apart from the metallic taste there is nothing wrong with this. Straightforward but still enjoyable - though I am wondering if in this particular substyle, you would not be better off with a plain old Guinness Draught...
