Theydon_Bois (12906) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2013
Cask at GBBF ’13, 15/08/13 thanks to Ronny for the pour. Light black/v dark mahogony brown with a thinnish light tan head that clears to a swirl/edgeing. Nose is dark toffee, light smoke, mineral notes, light chocolate. Taste comprises cardboard, light smoke, dark toffee, thinner than the aroma. Light to medium in body, a little on the watery side. So so stout affair.

Niall73 (2284) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2013
Cask at GBBF 2013. Nice coffee choc aroma with dark fruits. More of the same in the flavour. It’s just OK, a little watery.

Beesbeer (452) - WALES - OCT 25, 2012
Yummy yummy yummy far too drinkable. Lovely aroma. Rich flavours, some chocolate, treacle and heavy malt but lifted by a light to mediumj body with just enough carbonation to carry it all off.

stravale (2525) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - MAR 31, 2012
Cask @ Castle Tavern, Inverness
Black, thin tan bubbly head, some lacing
Aroma of deep roasted malts...dark caramel...molasses
Taste of dark roasted malts, some smoke, background of bitter hops, some trecle, lots of burnt notes, lots of flavour mainly burnt roast
Palate - soft carb, thin to medium body, quite viscous. Finish - burnt bitter crust, perhaps bit over burnt for my liking
Overall - lots of flavour for this 4% stout but relies a bit too much on burnt roast
