gegwilson (1448) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle from Booth’s in Ripon. A black body with a frothy tan head. Roast malt flavour as you would expect. Fairly mild tasting - a little initial sweetness with chocolate and a hint of spice before a dry bitter finish with a little coffee. Not bad.

imdownthepub (10626) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2013
Bottled, 500ml from Booth’s in Kendal, Cumbria. Black with big tan head. This is more like it, lots of coffee husk and bitter chocolate notes, heavily roasted malts, drying but not over dry. There is a light nuttiness, almost an almond flavour giving some contrast. Deep and warming, a comfort blanket of a beer. Very good.

dynamiteninja (1587) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2013
Bottle. Thin tan head. Medium tan head. Black body. Pours gloopy. Nose is chocolate and black malts, roastiness, red fruit and spice. Grass. Bittersweet. Dry and bitter finish. Soft and creamy mouthfeel. Refreshing.

wimpyjoe (4424) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2013
Strong stout and very dry in the palate. has a full aroma, slightly overbearing with a medium roasted malt taste. Black with a very small head.

DruncanVeasey (7315) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2013
Live rate. Bottle from Booth’s, Kendal. Reflective tar pour with a luxuriant tan head going nowhere. Full, soft condition; notes of biiter chocolate, iodine, stewed stone fruits and prunes. Fruity, lactic aroma wafting with an assortment of olfactory goodies including vanilla pod, carob, burnt malt loaf, raisiny high cocoa bitter chocolate and dark berries. Not especially dry. Lingers with roasted nut and mocha tones. A fine, full-bodied and satisfying stout I’m throwing down like cocoa...

calm_dreamer (158) - GREECE - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle. Very little to no head. Aroma and taste of bitter chocolate mostly, blended with coffee and maybe a tiny hint of caramel. Light body and no feeling of alcohol.

Nocturne (882) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2012
500ml bottle. Black with a brown head and some lacing. There’s a powerful roasty, ashy and chocolatey aroma out of the bottle, and more of a vanilla and custard nose once it’s in the glass. My mouth was primed for sweetness but of course it’s actually very dry, which seemed to take a way a lot from the taste. But, hey, it does what it sets out to do. This is a well-balanced and drinkable dry stout that deserves more exposure.
