Cask at the Rake. Opaque black beer. Light semi dry palate. Very lightly toasted malt. Tangy like a good porter. Subtle but nice red berry fruits underneath. Lots of dark malt but pleasantly light.
Cask at The Rake, Borough. Massive thanks to Glyn for this. I was just wondering away, when Glyn came and grabbed me and said that I had to have this. Bit of ash on a very decent stout. Fullish malts in mouth, some good roast, but the ash on the end is a little too dominant for me. Bitter roast finish lasted with me all the way to the train station which is quite impressive.

Cask gravity at You’ll Never Walk Alone, Kolding. Black with a small but lasting tan head. Fruity and resinous hop aroma, with a hint of licorice. Sweet licorice and fruity hops flavour with a roasted malt. After a long lasting flavour experience, the finish is strong roasted with a slightly ashy touch. Delicious! Wheat character? Not so much thewolf (12803) - Kolding, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2010
Cask @ YNWA, Kolding.

Pours completely black with a small, staying, creamy, beige head. Aroma is roasted, some sharp ashes, dark chocolate and a whole lot of wonderul hops. Resiny, piney, lemony and some plant sap. Damn, there’s a lot of hops in this! Low carbonation, fine light and dry mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet and malty at first with chocolate and roasted malts. Slightly ashy. Really lovely hops power, Simcoe?, citrus, light plant sap. A touch of liqourice. Super elegant and well put together despite the very different stout and hops flavours. Roasted black IPA or American Stout? Don’t care, it’s just lovely!
Cask conditioned handpump The Rake London. A black stout with a slight beige head. An excellent stout with lovely hoppy notes from the US stuff but with a really good roastiness as well. The hops are bitter with grapefruit shining through. Very nouveau but superbly balanced and delightfully drinkable. Super stuff that should be brewed permanently as there is a gap in the BrewDog range this would ideally fill. DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2009
Cask in The Rake. Alround rating: Big roasty malt character, fairly burnt infact, however theres a bit of chocolate sweetness, the hops are clearly american and the british tickers didnt know what to think of a citrusy hopped stout, quite a bit of banter educating them infact!

On tap at Stone Bistro. Pours a dark brown, with tan head. Dark malts, sweetness, bubble gum sweetness, fruit (banana and raisin), toasted bread, and a little bit of chocolate. Creamy, light mouthfeel, not heavy at all. Nice stout that actually is quite light, with an interesting wheat influenced flavor. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAR 23, 2010
On tap at Stone. Black with a thin tan head. Chocolate, roasted grain, and coffee aroma and taste with some mild fruity notes. Snojerk321 (2984) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 17, 2010
Tap @ Small Bar. Pours a fairly viscour dark brown with a creamy tan head that left some nice lacing. Nice nose of roasted malts, wheat and oats. A pretty tasty one from Brewdog.
