cgarvieuk (14287) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 19, 2008
Bottle at home ... Thanks to FIn for pointing me at this one ... Deep solid black with short lived head ... roast coffee with hint of tobacco ... Ohh bitter roast coffee malts ... bit too bitter for me ... Very solid stout ... behind the bitterness is lots of smooth roast malts ... good body ... and a simple but rounded stout.

harrisoni (13711) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2008
500ml bottle, big thanks to Fin and Loz for this one as I’ve been after it for some time. Black colour with very dark brown edges and a thin beige head. Attractive charcoal choc, grainy aroma. Little bit of liquorice. Fine, bit watery in mouth. Decent stout. No bad or poor flavours. Decent choccy stout. I suppose I was expecting a bit more from it from the previous reviews. I have 2 more bottles at home to take to RBESG in Plzen, so will try it again then.

Pours deep, almost black with a small, creamy, beige head. Aroma is slightly smoky with roasted malts and good chocolate. Quite thin, but with a fine balance. Pleasant flavour, lightly smoky with a good dose of dark chocolate. Nice.
