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

DeanF (1662) - Nunavut, CANADA - SEP 5, 2013
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.

Rune (7760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 22, 2013
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).

gunnar (5096) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 18, 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.

downender (6127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2013
Keg at Inn Deep, Glasgow 19/6/2013. Near black with a tight, off-white head. Easy drinking stout with some chocolate and roasted malts, before a dryish finish. Good.

imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2013
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.

Nilz (365) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 4, 2013
Cask at Inn Deep. A black stout with a slim creamy white head. Aroma coffee and caramel. Taste some nice sweetness, molasses and coffee with a nice bitter chocolate. Smooth and pleasant.

AshtonMcCobb (2311) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 25, 2013
On tap @ the Stockbridge Tap. Pours opaque black with a nice creamy head. The nose has dark chocolate but mostly coffee. The taste has more coffee with a creamy backdrop note. The palate is medium bodied, with a creamy texture and a smooth creamy finish. Overall, a good stout.Does this actually have coffee added?
