BeardedAvenger (542) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2017
Cask at PoW, Farnborough. Light malty chocolate aroma. Dark with a reddish tint. Thin beige head. Restrained light bitter which runs smoothly in to the finish. Underlying sweetness. Chocolate. Malts. Sour berries. Medium bodied. Oily. Low key finish. Good stuff. Will use restrained again but thats not a bad thing. A well balanced stout.

imdownthepub (14027) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2015
Cask conditioned at The Alehouse, Reading, Berks. Black with tan head. Rich, darkly roasted malts to the fore, liquorice and chocolate notes leading the way, dry with a hoppy bittering element. Full toasty and smooth. A really well brewed stout and a pleasure to drink.

Beese (2570) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2014
Bottle from a pop-up market in Wokingham. Poured black, with a tan head, which dissipated to a halo. Aroma of roasted malt, liquorice and peat. Good, smooth mouth feel. Dark chocolate in the flavour, with some coffee and port. Finish was burnt malt, molasses and treacle.

SlackerMads (3234) - DENMARK - NOV 12, 2014
Cask. Dark brown close to black with a medium sized good lacing white head. Vanilla, chocolate, cocoa, sugary dark malts, brown sugar, rye bread. Medium body and soft as velvet. Gentle carbonation, light coffee notes. Rich in flavour and oh so soft. Its like a beer pillow.

Cask @magpie Brentford a grimy stout that slaps ur palate with rich roast ,burnt malt and decent hop texture . A bit thin on palate though . Easy to swill.

vipinvelp (4171) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - NOV 8, 2013
Dark Brown with small light Brown foam ring. Aroma is not too strong, toffee. Taste is a stout, but not too extreme, bit weak. Aftertaste is long lasting. (Velp 201311) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Given how good the cask varients have been, i can only suspect the nbottle ... but this bottle at Jens doesnt live up to the rest ... dark black ... small bubbly tan head ... soft musty roast nose ... roast malts ... but something not right ... really hope i see on CASK
