Frothy coarse head, with a cocoa nose which reminds me of my homebrew days. Not the richest of stouts but it does have decent length in the palate. This would be the fourth time I have tried this beer in the last six months and would have to say they tend to quite variable.

stravale (2258) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - NOV 12, 2014
Bottle from Booths, MediaCityUK [071114]
Pitch black, big tan fluffy frothy head, good lacing
Aroma of soft burnt roast, charcoal, touch of dark fruits, some fruity coffee grounds
Taste of roasted malts, touch of burnt toast, some dark malts, bit of yeast, mellow dark coffee roast, dab of dark fruits
Palate - Soft carb. medium body, fairly bitter roasted malts. Finish is a bit dry, quite roasty
Overall - Not as good as I remember it when I had a bottle a few years ago, but it’s a decent stout, one of the better roasty one i’ve had

Buongiorgio00 (892) - - SEP 20, 2014
Davvero una stout coi fiocchi: intensa, cremosa, dai toni caffettosi persistenti e avvolgenti e note di cioccolato. Molto più di una classica stout inglese!

TET (1755) - FINLAND - JUL 1, 2014
A colablack beer with a quite weak and light beige head. The nose has roastiness, nice chocolate, some milky sourness, liquirice and coffee. Taste is roasted and that is quite dominating, black coffee and herbs, quite dry. Surprisingly long aftertaste even the body is quite light, low carbonation. Quite smooth. Succesfully and good beer. The roastiness is dominating but it’s not the only element.

SilverfoX (408) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2014
coffee, chocolate, roasty from a black body with a thin foamy head, medium sweetness, very bitter, coffe flavour that turns to chocolate in the finish, very good though it is a bit watery and was alot of fizz when i opened the bottle.
