Towey1989 (1649) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2016
Cask at The Bridge Street Ale House, Newcastle-Under-Lyme. A black colour with a medium tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, a little liquorice, slight treacle and subtle vanilla. Taste is similar of roasted malts, chocolate, some treacle, a little liquorice and subtle vanilla. Light bodied but a smooth texture. A dry, roasted bitterness in the finish. A tasty, smooth stout. Good roasted bitterness with sweet treacle and vanilla balance. Shame the brewery closed and will never have this again.

tombyars (1579) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - OCT 15, 2014
Tasted this at the Troon Beer Festival on the 3rd October 2014. Cask, gravity dispense. Dull black in colour with a thin tan head. Short note of roast grain on the malty nose. Thin oily mouthfeel and poor lacing. Dark malt complex gives chewy malt grains with notes of dark chocolate and chicory evident. Short damp earthy flavour present in the hop resins giving a brief bitterness to the aftertaste. Finish is rather dry with roast grains, leather and oak cask notes in the palate. An ok session stout but one of the weaker examples at the festival though.

niquillis (2344) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2013
On cask at The Holy Inadequate, Stoke on Trent. Pours black with a smooth tan head. In your face with roasts, a vanilla balance, hoppy tang. A cracking stout, very moreish.

downender (7795) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2013
On gravity at Bristol beef festival, 16/3/2013. Near black with a slight, off-white head. Plenty of chocolate character, roasted malts and a touch of vanilla before a dry finish. Good.

SaintMatty (6611) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 12, 2011
500ml Bottle - Very dark brown, almost black, with a tan head and some red tinges when held to the light. Roasted malt, plain chocolate and coffee feature in the aroma. Smooth, chocolatey and roasted taste with notes of coffee, vanilla and roasted malt. Easy to drink and tasty.

greenmanalishi (519) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2011
Bottle - Tatton Park Shop. Dry, roasty character with a robust mouthfeel that leaves the coffee, dark chocolate, tobacco flavours on the taste buds. Excellent.
