Bottled. Very black with big, firm beige head. Aroma of chocolate pudding. Sweet and raisiny with raw Carnegie Porter style mellow malt character. Thick with plenty of molasses and syrup. Could possibly become something worthwile after a few years in the cellar.

Bottle. Black colour with a medium creamy beige head. Aroma of caramel, sweet dark chocolate and roasted malts, which very much noticeable in the flavour too, along with some coffee and a roasty dry bitter chocolate finish.

imdownthepub (9964) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2011
Bottled, 330ml from S.H Jones, Banbury. Black with tan head. Quite sweet and sticky initially, full om the palate, some rich roastiness, but the sweetness does dominate. Some late fruitiness.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2006 Bottled from Ram’s Supermarket in Montserrat. Presumably this version is made somewhre in the Caribbean but where wasn’t clear from the label. Deep chocolate brown colour. Beige head. Malty aroma. Burnt treacle toffee flavour with a smooth texture and a slightly sweet finish. Very palatable after all the bland lager I had drunk in the Caribbean. I’m not sure how appreciative I’d be in other circumstances.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2001
Fairly nice stout, nice burnt caramel on the palate, quite a bitter finish i thought, but not a bad drop.

berkshirejohn (4381) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2008
33cl bottle from Plonkers, Derby. Black with a thick loose tan head and a ruby tint. Aroma of sweet roasted malts and some chocolate - there is none of the bitterness that often comes with over-roasting. The flavour is oily with hints of chocolate and coffee mingling with plums and other soft fruit. Then a dry, warming, bitter finish develops with a touch of port.

A tasty stout, nicely balanced and lacking the harsh coffee edge of many others.
