Dpbry stout. Czarny jak smoła i prawie bez prześwitów. Tylko 4% alc a piwo mocno rozgrzewa. Gożki i wytrawny posmak czekolady i piernika świątecznego. Piana niestety mała i pęcherzykowa berkshirejohn (6444) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2011
50cl bottle of Brains Original Stout from Tescos, Hastings.
A deep chestnut black colour with a loose creamy beige head; rich coffee and chocolate
aroma; the texture is milky, but the taste is quite strongly bitter and lacking the expected sweetness;
there’s some chocolate then a long dry finish with burnt demerara sugar and a slight warming at the end.
A fine stout. delnoche (516) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - JAN 21, 2012
50cl bottle poured into a pint glass. Dark brown with a thick tan head. Aroma is slight chocolate. Very chocolatey flavor. Full body, moderate carbonation. Pretty tasty brew. StueyD (1582) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2012
Pitch black coloured beer with a weak creamy coloured head. Rich nutty aroma, coffee, burnt sugar, dark chocolate and roast malt. Full, but dry mouthfeel. Bittersweet taste, all the elements from the aroma appear again, especially the coffee and malt, there is a hint of nuttiness that is matched with a thick dark fruit flavour. The bitterness lasts right through to the finish. Garrold (5170) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle. B&M. Clear, dark, cola brown. Messy slick of tan head. Dark chocolate malts. Some treacle. Bonfire toffee. Milky chocolate. Taste is nutty sweet. Light dry. Light bitter. Smooth, slick, creamy mouthfeel. Finishes long, mild bitter. Really good, smooth, drinkable stout. Brains is good, as someone once said to me...

500ml bottle cool. Pours black with a dense tan head. Coffee aroma, and mocha flavour. There’s a bit of black treacle, slick and creamy mouth feel, and generous bitterness in the finish. Nice one. undercurrent25 (2130) - Barnton, Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2011
Thick and dark witha taste of malted roast and treacle, a very good example of how a stout should be Rob_D_UK (1369) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 13, 2013

A really nice stout. Roasted malts in the nose, perhaps a hint of chocolate. Dark, dark brown pour with a rocky tan head. Solid chocolate, roasted malt, and coffee flavor profile. Some bittering at the end. My only complaint would be is that it is a bit thin on the palate, otherwise very drinkable. OwainTurner (425) - Leicester, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2013
Bottle from Tesco! Very dark caramel (completely opaque)... Lovely rich chocolate raisin taste.. sweet fruits with citrus peel finish. Warm and smooth
