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.

Pint @ Inn Deep, Glasgow (£3.20):
Roasted malts and some mild coffee notes with a touch of caramel. There is some background sweetness and a solid, medium strength stout aroma to the beer. Nothing out of character but a pleasant smell beer with hints of chocolate too.
Deep black colour with a thin, off-white and foamy head that leaves some lacing on the sides.
Sweet, roasted malts to begin with as well as some darker caramel flavouring and again a nice, mild stout taste that goes down well. There is some burnt coffee too.
Smooth and creamy one with a medium body and a slightly sweet mouthfeel. Carbonation was about medium and the balance was a good one.

A nice stout that went down well, had a solid stout taste and a nice creamy feel to it. There wasn’t much out of the ordinary as far as stouts go but the flavours were well balanced and it proved an easy beer to drink.

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?

gunnar (5469) - 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.

stravale (2125) - 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

BeerCast_Rich (1891) - 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]
