Pours a really dark almost pitch with a mahogany on the fringes, nose is nose is chocolate and liquorice Taste dark malt quite weak dark chocolate hollow mouthful, would have prefixed a thicker mouthful, but this serves its purpose. Not bad via Beer Buddy

From cask at Inn Deep. Pours dark brown to black, deep amber glare with a small tan head. Aroma is roasted malty and breadish, chocolate too. Dark malty, creamy and breadish. Bitter, dry and hoppy into a roasted malty and dry finish. Slight off tang in the flavour. Toffee, liqourice and roasted malty finish.

stravale (1898) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - OCT 6, 2012
Keg @ Red Squirrel, Edinburgh 021012
Black, dense rich tan head, good lacing
Aroma - not helped by the cold keg dispense...soft roast malts, soft plain chocolate, cocoa powder
Taste as aroma, nice deep dark malts in there, mellow, touch of molasses, hint of toffee, smooth
Palate - medium carb and body, quite oily, smooth texture. Finish as main flavour, smooth mellow roast chocolate malts
Overall - Good tasting but simple stout - I don’t think keg works all that well with this beer though. I reckon on cask might be around 3.7

Keg @ Inn Deep. Very dark brown colour with a reddish hue, reasonable head. Big fruity Christmas pudding aroma. Fruity coffee malt flavour, bitter sweet aftertaste. Average stout.

BeerCast_Rich (1841) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 29, 2012
[keg, The Last Word, Edinburgh] Black as night, served in the darkest bar in Edinburgh. Decent white head. Served cold, it has little aroma, but the flavour is very nice. Chalky, earthy dark malt, very roasty on the flavour. No real fruit in there, just varying degrees of earthy bitterness, more of which comes out on the palate as the beer warms. Good stuff [18082012]

Roasted malt on the nose, fairly earthy and basic. Taste is mild roast with a muddy bitterness. Fairly watery body. Basic stout which is inoffensive, if a little dull.
