Cask @ Black Door
Aroma is nice with coffee and some licorice. Flavour has coffee, some dark chocolate and licorice. Rather dry finish with well roasted malt. Delicious, one of the best real ales for a long while.

Craft Clerkenwell. Opaque black - brown beer, little tan head. Light dry palate. Rich and unsweet dark malt and chocolate. A little balancing oaky vanilla sweetness on the backend. A whisper of fruits. All right.

foxo82 (708) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2013
Hand pulled at the Rose Villa Tavern, Birmingham. Black as your hat - if, indeed, your hat is black like this beer - with a small white head. Very watery start to this - I think it is too cold as I’m not picking much up except vanilla ice cream. Slight coffee aftertaste. But maybe that’s the point? Very slight aroma. No trousers. Slightly disappointing.

On Cask @ Coach and Horses, Dronfield - absolutely certain I’d had this in 2012 already, a classic stout look, jet vlack with a tan head that laces all the way through. The smoothness is there for all to see all the way through the drink, the vanilla notes are there before, during and after with this one... like a black liquid ice-cream. Class in a glass.

jackl (4797) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 20, 2012
Cask @ CPK. Chestnut brown color with a tiny tan head. The nose is sugared nuts, milk chocolate. Lactose. Brown sugar. The taste is more milk chocolate, plenty of vanilla. Some toasty malts. Light watery coffee finish. The body’s a bit thin, though I don’t mean it as a criticism. Quite sweet and flavorful.

evergreen0199 (2114) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2012
Cask at Euston Tap, London. A dark brown/black coloured pour with a medium beige head on top. Sweet, vanilla, coffee aroma. Tastes similar, vanilla, coffee, hint of chocolate, malty and quite smooth. This stout was a little thin for me but still quite decent.
