Noise:big babbol. Black, head cappuccino. Not great body. Really sweet taste. Not great presence of alcohol. Not bad, but not a great example of double stout.

Light dry chocolate to finish, some further dark fruits, sugary dark malts. Very nice.

jackl (4312) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUL 31, 2013
Bottle @ The Train Tasting, Pt I. Picked up at the legendary Kris Wines. The pour’s deep brown with a small head. The nose is coffee, roasted chocolate toast. Light tangy greek yogurt. The taste is bitter roasted coffee. More toast. Somewhat peppery edge from the coffee flavors. Full body, smooth for something touching 10%. Overall, a fairly solid effort.

Theydon_Bois (7935) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2013
Bottle on the Black Country Train Tasting Part I, 06/07/13, thanks to Jack. Light black with a medium tan head that retains well. Nose is dark toffee, chocolate, booze, light roasted malts. Taste comprises dark toffee fudge, treacle toffee, dark fruits, dates, sugars, molasses, tobacco, touch of booze. Full bodied, fine carbonation, roasty finale with a little warming alcohol. Ok impy - a little basic/1D in its make up but the alcohol was well integrated for 9%+.

harrisoni (13248) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2013

PaulW (98) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2013
A good stout. Not a lot on the nose, after it pours a thin tan head, but there’s a bit of roast. Soft carbonation, this is not heavily hopped, the bitterness comes from the dark malt. The start is bitter chocolate, and the aftertaste is liquorice. Not as full bodied as I thought, but still a slow drinker.
