mr_h (6220) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - MAR 5, 2018
Cask (5%), 1/2 pint by hand-pump at The Bon Accord, Glasgow on 5 Mar 2018: rich coffee aroma, opaque near black, thin short-lived head, no lacing, coffee, roast malt, some dark chocolate, creamy, sweet for coffee, smooth.

Stuu666 (15798) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 9, 2015
Cask at bow bar. Pours black, a bit thin, light coffee, smooth roast chocolate.

Beese (3408) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2014
Bottle from a pop-up market in Wokingham. Poured black, with a thin beige head. Aroma of sweet coffee, dark malt and treacle. More coffee in the flavour, but with more bitter roastiness and molasses. Full, smooth mouth feel. Finish was espresso, burnt malt and dark chocolate.

harrisoni (19863) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2014
Cask gravity at Planet Thanet BF 2014. Black beer no head. Coffee chocolate aroma but somewhere between an instant and ground coffee. Coffee is no more than ok. Overall the chocolate is the best thing about the beer. Still mostly average

john44 (3544) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2014
Gravity Half Pint at Battersea Beer Festival 2014, London in Feb 2014 - Very Dark Brown (almost Black) in colour. Malty; roasty/burnt malts, coffee, some chocolate. Fruity; some dark fruits. Initially fairly sweet roast coffee malty but increasingly bitter into the dry finish. Decent.

Jen81 (25) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2014
@ Queen’s Head, Uxbridge. Lovely black colour with a dark cream head. Not a heavy pint so easy to drink. Vague coffee notes in smell, but big coffee hit in taste. Very morish.

Beersiveknown (5324) - NORTHERN IRELAND - NOV 26, 2013
cask at belfast beer festival, 2013
Dark brown black with ashen coffee nose. Medium body, sweet malt balances roast coffee spent grounds. Not the best coffee aroma but good beer.

BeerViking (5238) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2013
Cask at the Webb Ellis JDW, near black with a fine beige crema and an almost overwhelming roast coffee nose. Once in the mouth, the powerful coffee notes are just about balanced by treacle and dried dark fruit. A light hoppiness joins the roast coffee in the finish.

berkshirejohn (6856) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2013
50cl bottle from the brewery. A deep magohany colour with a beige head and a brilliant amber glow when caught by the light; the aroma has soft malts, and the expected ground coffee; in the mouth there’s some tart fruit at first that balances well against the creamy coffee body; before a rich coffee finish. Slightly thin, but otherwise an excellent coffee stout.

Theydon_Bois (22090) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2012
Cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green - 29/12/12. Very dark mahogony brown, light black in the light, thin off white head that recedes to the edge. Nose is a great coffee hit, roast malt, sugars, sweet espresso coffee. Taste follows, coffee forward with a touch of dark chocolate and liqourice with a roast malt backbone. Medium bodied with soft carbonation, roast finish. A very good cask coffee stout!
