Keg @ Drygate. Pours like a glass of coke, black and very little head. Smoky aroma, taste is coffee with hints of fruit. Bit watery, otherwise this would be excellent

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
2014-06-28. Ruby tinged black body with a modest brown head. 3+ Aroma is mild, light cocoa like dusty roast, mild fruity undertones. Flavour is surprisingly mild and fruity, dusty musty cocoa hints and a not quite roasty character to it. Average bodied palate, light carbonation is a bit thin and very much so for a stout. Not terrible but would fare better as a mild than a stout perhaps? On tap at Inn Deep, Glasgow

Nice and simple, this is not a bad thing. If i could take this everywhere with me as a standard beer it would be great, nice and solid

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
It has an aroma of great barley notes with some spiciness, has a perfect long-lasting head and black-amber body. Flavour is a reliable barley and maltiness but rather simplistic. Medium mouthfeel with a dry finish. It’s a decent drinkable stout, but middling for the style.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Half, served from cask at the Red Squirrel. Creamy, tan-coloured head that laces well. Deep, dark brown coloured body. Roasted earthy malts on the nose. Dark malty flavours of chocolate and dark bread. Slightly roasted endnotes. Creamy texture. Quite alright, a bit thin bodied though (Edinburgh 07.08.2013).

Keg at the Hanging Bat, Edinburgh. Pours black with a tiny white creamy head.Aroma of toasted malts, liquorice and coffee. Taste is moderate bitter, coffee, some chocolate and liquorice, which I am very fond of, so a good one in my book.

Keg at The Cardinal’s Hat, Worcester. Black with cream head. There is an immediate flavour of chocolate despite the low temperature, quite creamy with some bitterness as well. There is a charry note to the malt. Fullish on the palate. Not bad.
