Craft Clerkenwell. Cask. Opaque dark brown beer, little pale tan head. Palate is light and airy and slightly soft. Light touch of dark malts, tangy. Little dark fruits and a whisper of dark chocolate. Super light roast malt. Pretty modest coffee. Citrus peeping through in the semi dry finish. A lot going on here for such a modest abv stout. Decent.

harrisoni (13737) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle at Googies Folkestone. Black beer lasting tan head. Chocolate dark chocolate and some spiciness on the aroma. It’s a slightly harsh milk stout with lots of coffee. Wow stunning. Not too much lactuc but it is there. I don’t normally like milk stout but this is good. It’s good. Some bitterness on the finish. Excellent. Given I don’t like the style. Lactose increases as it warms up. Still for a style that normally makes me retch this is good.

yngwie (13575) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle. A clear looking dark brown beer with a small, dense, beige head. The aroma has lots of lovely coffee, with mocha and dark chocolate. Roasted malts. It’s quite thin on the palate, expected for a beer at this ABV, with a very soft carbonation level. Mocha, roasted malts, dark chocolate and some dried fruits. Some lacto notes. Lasting mocha and dark chocolate finish with a little bitterness. Pretty wonderful low ABV coffee stout I would like to have as a regular in my local grocery store. 140808

Bottle at Kirjakauppa. Pitch black color, tiny off-white head. Aroma has toasted maltyness and coffee. Light-bodied. Espresso, toasted malty flavor. Nice and balanced but way too watery for my liking.

Leighton (11030) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2013
Cask at the Cock Tavern - London. Pours dark brown with a thick, mocha cream head. Quite a bit of mocha on the nose, soft roast. Light to medium sweet flavor with char, some chalky roast, slight minerals and baking cocoa. Light bodied with smooth, silky carbonation. Fairly earthy and bitter to finish, lots of bittersweet baking cocoa, moderate toast, some burnt coffee grounds. A really nice, depthy and sessionable stout.
