Tobias10 (99) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2005
Cask : Kings Cross CAMRA beer festival 2005. A jet black stout, good roast malt flavours come through to leave a dry mouth feel. The hops come through at the end. Lovely!

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Pitch blaque and opaque, pretty much no head - no carbonation either. Dark, malty flavours from the hard roasted malts. Quite a delicate hoppy edge adding a decent bitterness. Unusual. 091200

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2005
A Mes rate: Black as night and totally opaque. Decentish head with plenty of lace. Great aroma. Lots of coffee and very roasty. Flavour is kind of sweet and roasted at the same time and there is a very strong hit of something I can only describe as car tyres. Shame about that because otherwise it is excellent. Actually now it has warmed a little and the last bit has gone in the glass its much better. Creamy and very drinkable. Yeah it’s good.

Poured from the bottle, a very dark black with a largew rocky head. A rich aroma of roasted caramal. A strong caramal flavour with hoppy undertones. Very smooth on the palate.
