This is a really enjoyable stout. Full of flavours, coffee, chocolate with an exstremely smooth finish. My only problem is where to buy it from. ? ladnewton (2035) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2011
Cask at CPK on 2nd March 2011. Black with thin vanishing pale brown head. Rich blend of coffee, chocolate and cherry flavours in aroma and liquid, and a superb smoky kick and roast malts. A rather fruity end, with rich fruitiness lingering along with roasted maltiness. Very enjoyable, reasonably light-textured and easy drinking. cgarvieuk (25987) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 5, 2012
deep black ... thin tan lacing ... solid light roast ... big coffee nose ... juicy roast ... light bitterness ... again huge coffee ... very nice Jen81 (769) - 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. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2011
Cask Conditioned handpump Cask Pub & Kitchen London. A black beer with a thin whitish head. Definite coffee throughout within a good base beer. Quite roasty in the nose and rich in the mouth. Lots of bitter coffee late on. I don’t like coffee as a drink (unfortunately) but I do like it in a beer if it isn’t too dominating. This wasn’t; instead it was a great beer.

Cask at CPK. Pours jet black with a mild, tan foam head. Roasted malt aroma, some cocoa, nothing out of the ordinary. Flavor, though, is quite distinct. Very pointy. Perhaps some ink and iodine underscoring a medium roasted malt character. Decent sweetness, some ash, burnt sugar, licorice, spices. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Roasted malt finish, mild smokiness, a bit of chocolate syrup and light coffee. Very dynamic beer, highly enjoyable. berkshirejohn (6654) - 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.
