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.

minutemat (4422) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2016
500ml bottle shared in the corporate hospitality area @ GBBF 16, as one of the disappointingly few exclusive bottled beers there. Pours black, thin ring of -off-white head. Taste is rather thin, a touch dry with a valiant hint of roast on the finish. Next.

prawlie (1500) - ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2016
On draught at the Nags Head in Reading a year or so ago. Black with a light bubbly brown head. Nice and roasted stout, with a dark malt body and a chocolate, albeit not entirely clean finish. A reasonable stout.

Bottle from Home Bargains. This was being sold around the £1 mark. Great value as it's a really good stout. Sweet then a bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Grumbo (1507) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2016
Cask at the Crosse Keys, London EC3. Plus black with a small off white head, leaving good lacing. Aroma of chocolate malt and mocha. Sweetness is almost that of a sweet stout, with a light bitterness. Velvet smooth texture, body is rather light, soft carbonation. Light roasting to sweet finish. A good beer.

500 ml bottle. Pours dark brown with big, long lasting tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Light body with soft carbonation with dry finish. Bit too light for my taste.

theprof (520) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2015
Tap. Earthy roasted malt aroma. Classic black with cram top. Served from the craft corner so in my view over-chilled. This may explain why the flavours were more muted. Bready rather than biscuity with the barley outweighing the hops on the first taste. Some Smokey undertones and one can detect where the vanilla stout hails from. While more to my taste than most Guinness served this may keep me in the mild porter camp.
