[707-20070926] Cask @ The Lord Moon of the Mall (London, GL). Fruity bitter coffee malt. Dark brown black body with a light tan foamy head. Sour fruity flavour. Full body has bitter finish. Fruitiness is weird, otherwise fine.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2008 Cask (Live and Let Live, Cambridge)
Basically black, creamy beige head. Chocolate burnt malt aroma. Smooth and mellow thick grainy roasted malt taste - decent chocolate component, some liquorice, but not sticking out abruptly at all. Must agree with the session stout comment.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2007
Counting House. Aroma is heavily roasted malt, liquirce with hints of tart fruit. Taste is burnt tar, liqurice, tart fruit, burnt toast. All far to much and just aiming to get as roasty as possible without any possibility of drinkability. I had a few sips then gave up. In excellent condition.

Beese (2571) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2007
Wow! I thought this was one of the best beers Iíve had rescently. It looks great, pretty much pitch black, with a small amount of brown, creamy head. A really nice, burnt aroma as well as some chocolatey hints. A great coffee taste thatís really quite powerful followed by very burnt malts and then a bitter dark chocolate taste on the after. The after-taste stuck with me for hours! Amazing beer!
