Cask @ Three Tuns Inn, Bishops Castle. A great stout with dry coffee, a delicious sweetness and a smooth drinkable texture. Very nice.

Oakes (12398) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2014
Dark brown, fruity, liquoricey nose is so old school. Taste is the same - deep fruity and slightly tangy old ale taste. A step back in time, this has educational value if nothing else. For drinking pleasure, I’m really not sure where this fits - it’s like a light-bodied old ale.

Theydon_Bois (8302) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2013
Cask at EBF XVI, 09/11/13. Mid black with a good sized bubbly tan covering. Nose is chocolate, vanilla, light malt bill, brown sugars. Taste comprises cocoa, light roast malts, earthy cocoa, leather, vanilla essence. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry lightly roasted closure. Decent enough stout affair.

berkshirejohn (4477) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2013
Cask at the 16th Egham Beer Festival. Egham has a reputation for showcasing some of the newest breweries, but in this case they have opted for one of the oldest. A glossy black pour with a cream head; toffee aroma; rich body with some coffee flavours; and a gently bitter finish. A well made stout.

Nocturne (775) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2013
Cask. Black with a mocha head that recedes quickly. Blackberry and roasty aroma. Tastes similar. Dark hedgerow berries, roast, lots of liquorice and some chocolate. Quite a creamy and oily mouthfeel. Pretty nice stout.

jamesie1857 (1374) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2013
On cask @ Uxbridge Arms, Chasetown - Black body with a frothy tall dark tan head. Smooth roast aroma with caramel and toffee under the roast. Sweet sugary taste with some coffee in there. Medium-light mouthfeel with a nice crisp dry finish. Enjoyed.

Svesse (6066) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 12, 2013
(Cask at White Horse, Parson’s Green, London, 24 Nov 2012) Black colour with foamy, beige head. Roasted, malty nose with notes of black coffee, caramel, ashes and slightly brunt aromas. Malty, roasted taste with dark chocolate, caramel, burnt sugar, black coffee and a generous roasty bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with just a touch of sweetness. Well made and very nice stout.

imdownthepub (10141) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2013
Bottled, 500ml from Hop & Stagger Bottle Shop, Bridgnorth, Shrops. Black with brown head. Dark, chocolate malts with a burnt liquorice, treacle snap type flavour. Quite sharp, with a slight metallic edge, but also full and bitter. Fairly decent.

jackl (4567) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Cask @ The White Horse Old Ale Festival. The pour’s black with a small espresso head. The nose is charred grain, hints of chocolate, ash and toasted malts. The taste is chocolate and caramel cake. Charred wood and ash. Soft dry, slightly bitter finish. Well-rounded, smooth. Overall, an understated, well-made stout. Good stuff.

BlackHaddock (3645) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2012
22nd Feb 2012: Hand pulled half-pint in The Plough, Shifnal: Shropshire. Black, really black body: off-white flat crown of foam on top. Toasted and roasted malty aroma: dark chocolate, ground coffee and a mini hint of liquorice. The taste was sweeter than the nose suggested but with a hidden bitterness that comes through before you start thinking about ‘milk stouts’ and creaminess. Smooth more than rich, nice easy drinking brew.
