Keg at Ales and Tails, Twickenham, 07/04/13. NOTE to self - need to double check whether this is an unpasteurised version or not but leaving rating here for time being. Mid black with a big frothy beige head that stays for the show. Nose is a little thin, roast malt, barley, metallic notes. Taste comprises roast malt, mineral tones, metallic notes, light chocolate. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, smooth on the palate. Ok drinkable fayre but a touch on the bland side.

Bottle. Black beer with frothy beige head and good lacing. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malts. The taste is a fine mix of the usual roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. But its well rounded and medium bodied. Very nice stout with a dry finish.

(Cask) It sounds boring, but all I can say is that it’s a nice, basic stout. It’s not smooth to the point of seeming artificial, not much aroma and although it’s a tough mild it’s fairly tasty.

Cask at The Wellington, Birmingham. Poured a crude oil like colour with a very thin tan head and some broken lace. The aroma is of malt and spice. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with loads of spice and pepper, oh and not forgetting that alcoholic liquorice bitterness on the palate! Titanic ales taste so much better cask in the pub than they do from a bottle!

skam (5) - Torino, ITALY - JAN 13, 2013 does not count
Bottiglia 500ml Nel bicchiere si presenta con il caratteristico colore scuro del suo stile, schiuma consistente color nocciola. Al palato l’aroma è di malto tostato con intense note di cioccolato, caramello e fondo di caffè bruciato che persistono anche dopo l’assaggio. I suoi timidi 4,5% lasciano un po’ perplessi, attribuendogli una modesta corposità, accompagnata da una eccessiva carbonazione vanno sparendo in un deciso finale secco. Dispiace che i nostri supermercati, a differenza di quelli inglesi non dispongano di un buon prodotto come questo.

Sempre ottima, coperta una schiuma abbondante e pannosa, secca e ...molto soddisfacente!
