500 ml bottle, cellar cool. Its not black but a beautiful deep tawny red with a thin clinging tan head. Aroma of malt loaf and farmyard. Medium bodied, medium sweet, creamy mouthfeel, chocolatey flavour, fruity finish. Lovely robust dark beer.

Rune (14062) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 24, 2012
Cask, half pint, at Drum & Monkey. Ruby-dark body. Thin layer that laces well. Roasted, almost peaty, dark malts to the nose. Flavour of dark malts offset by dark fruits. Malt-fruity, bittersweet finish. Well bodied considering the abv. (Glasgow, 11.04.2012).

worldbeertaste (1819) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2012
Solid black with a faint red tint. Chocolatly roastness and berry on the nose. Creamy light body. Taste of chocolate, roasted malt with light taste of dark berries. Becomes a bit thin.

AshtonMcCobb (7095) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 6, 2012
On tap @ the Haymarket. Pours opaque black with a nicely proportioned cream head. The nose has chocolate and cream and there is more of that on the taste. Good palate - long, smooth and a creamy. almost elegant finish. Overall, surprisingly good for a big regional brewer.

tommann (4083) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2012
Nitro-keg at the Fountain, Gornal. Pours black with a large head. Aroma is some roast and berries. Taste has a little roast with some coffee in the finish. Got a bit more sweet and smokey as it warmed.

TheCametron (2480) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 26, 2012
Cask at the pub in Golspie. Black with a white head. Looks great. Amazing lacing. There’s chocolate and roasted malt character. The malt is reminiscent of Belhaven Best. It’s a dexent attempt at an alternative to Guiness. Presumeably the thought process behind it is just that.

3.3
Leighton (23106) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2012
Cask at The Magpie, Nicholson’s, London. Pours dark brown with a tight, creamy head. Ashy roast aroma. Light sweet flavor, some tobacco, lacto cocoa, mild earth. Light bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Light sweet finish, some bittersweet cocoa, more tobacco, burnt sugar, faint leaves and dirt. Somewhat light on character but overall not bad.

3.6
Benjii (3050) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 3, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2012 On keg at Cloisters. Pours a very dark brown colour with a thick, light tan head. Aroma of chocolate, caramel and coffee. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and a creamy mouth-feel. Lingering chocolate and just faintly metallic in the finish. Not bad (656315). Also had this on cask at Cloisters. I preferred this to the keg version. A decent and very drinkable stout.

Keg. Pours dark brown with an excellent tan head. Roasdt and toffee aroma. Flavour is roast and mild coffee with a light sweet creamy finish. A little thin. Overall a decent beer.
