Bottle at home split with Sarah. Clear black coloured pour with reddy hues in the light and lasting thin mid tan head. Aroma is smooth cocoa, booxy cake mix, toasted coconut, milk chocolate, porridge oats. Flavour is composed of smooth rich dark coco, smooth roast barley, some lactose sugars, oats. Palate is medium bodied, maybe slightly thin, slick, moderate carbonation.

Negra com espuma marrom, densa e de longa duraçăo. Notas de malte torrado, café, toffee e discreto chocolate. Corpo médio com final longo e retrogosto remetendo a café. Agradável surpresa!

Bamsen78 (4838) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - SEP 5, 2015
Bottle @ Řllets Dag, Kolding. Pours hazy coffee brown with small light tan head. Clear aroma of malt, fruit and yeast, with notes of roast. Bitter, roasty flavour with notes of malt and estery and fruity touches. Roasty aftertaste with estery notes. Decent.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2015 Wee beauty. So dark and opague. Nice tan head. Chocolate on nose and palate. Nice stout that’s not got that bitter element that a lot do. Light enough too. Dark burnt peat mixed with cola. Would get one other point if head lasted as nice as initial pour

Several pints yesterday, on draught, Glasgow City Centre. Rich roasty coffee taste. Had bottles of this before, which I enjoyed, but better on draught.

Bottle. Black with a scant coat of light tan head. Not a whole lot of aroma - some chicory, roasted barley, light gruut-like spices. Light bodied, moderate carbonation. Has filtered hardness to it that doesn’t do it any favours Miles away from "creamy". Not much sweetness, more chic than choc, a firm roasted barley note, that Scots coriander thing that I associate with Traquair. Started at 10C, liked it a little more as it warmed.

JorgeLee (1677) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2015
Bottle from Beer Hawk. Fairly dark stout, quite high carbonation, didn’t raise too much of a head. A bit muddled flavours, some chocolate, tiny bit roasty, bit of hop. Didn’t quite come together.

Well balanced stout no knockout flavours all very subtle but dark chocolate roast cofee and smoked peat re all lurking nice stuff without being exceptional
