john44 (3101) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2017
Bottle. Dark Brown in colour with Reddish tinge. Malty; dark chocolate, roasty malts, coffee. Hoppy; grassy hops. Roasty chocolate sweet malty with a sour hop/fruit edge. Dry roasty finish. Not bad. Very drinkable. (2011-09-27)

imdownthepub (14547) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2015
Bottled, 500ml from Grimsbury Londis, Banbury, Oxon. Black with cream head. There is a roasty, malty, bitter character to this, a fuller flavour than the ABV would suggest. There is some fruitiness, however; I would pitch this closer to a mild than a stout. Reasonable though.

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...

3.2
jjsint (3089) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2014
Bottle from Tesco, consumed at home. Dark brown, high amount of carbonation, very little head. Enticing aroma of roast malt and a bit of coffee. Bittersweet taste, giving way to a bitter/sour taste and a bitter finish. Weak mouthfeel. Lacks the complexity and richness of a really great stout, but still enjoyable enough.

3.3

500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours dark brown with a red tinge, thin beige head. Aromas are roast malt, chocolate, liquorice. Taste is light sweet, light bitter. Oily mouthfeel, little thin at the end. Ok.
