Niall73 (1686) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2014
Bottle. BB 26/07/14. Pours a dark reddy brown with a beige head. Aroma is a light coffee with a grassiness too. Light to medium body, mild carbonation. Fairly light, with a bit of coffee, citrus and dark chic. OK balance, but lacking body. Fine.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 6, 2014
Bottle @All My Vinyl Tasting, Edinburgh. Pours brown, nice nice a bit of coffee, fruity, a touch of chocolate as well. Thin tasting also just way too much coffee for me.

CraftBeerNick (863) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle at home, 8th February 14. Pours a good looking beer, too much head for a stout though. A little fizzy on the palate, aroma is ashy some chocolate, taste is smooth, sweetish and some bitter hops. Not a bad beer

dogbomb (940) - ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2014
Bottle. Dark black/brown ale with a thick lumpy rich tan head. Nose is coffee, caramels, some honey, dark malts. In the mouth it’s rich and malty, but with a bitter kick. Lots of chocolate and toffee, but there’s a strong bitter trying to push through making this a nice drink - not too sweet, not too bitter. Strong flavour, not strong alcohol. Good stout stout!

ElectroMod (119) - - JAN 19, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2014 Bottle as part of a gift pack from The Royal Exchange, Stone. Pours almost black with a huge fluffy beige head. Aroma is chocolatey and roasted malt with a hint of coffee. Taste is big on malt, smooth dark chocolate and espresso. Carbonation tickles the palate as it goes down and not too oily as sone stouts can be. Tasty.

Cask at Fuggles Beer Cafe in Tunbridge Wells. Pours very black with a thick, creamy head. Aroma is classic stout, roasty and malty. Taste is smooth and full bodied, with hints of chocolate, vanilla, and roastiness. Silky mouthfeel. Very satisfying.
