chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2005
A stonking good stout. Chocolate is the key component. Dark, bitter chocolate. I didn’t realise it was an oatmeal stout and I can’t say I detected any significant sweetness that normally comes from the oatmeal. Holds the attention throughout. Full flavoured and forceful, with a lasting, slightly sharp finish.. Cask (gravity dispense), Catford Beer Festival 2005.

harrisoni (19339) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2005
Cask at County Hotel JDW Ashford. Black with dark beige head. Tarry aroma with some chocolate and coffee. OK in mouth, with tarry/coffee/chocolate and grainy finish. Got better as the pint went down

3.2
imdownthepub (15333) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2005
Cask Conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Black with ruby hint and tan head. Looks like a stout, but who would serve a stout freezing cold? what sons of B’s would make me wait before it was drinkable, well ok those idiots at Guiness think its a good idea, but an actual proper, well crafted stout should be treated better. Finally, I found it a little watery, the coffee, dark roast didn’t come through until near the end. Passable and I hope to try it agai, but fairly average.
