Mildly bitter very malty throughout with hop bitterness. Understandably thin, but very full flavoured for low ABV. Very drinkable. (2011-02-03)

cask @ the rake, a long time ago. I remember being disappointed with this one. Too thin and watery and too little taste thomat (3830) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2012

Rather light aroma with cocoa and hints of coffee. Flavour has coffee and some cocoa. Rather thin palate. Riptide lite, I’d say.
Cask at the Brewdog Burns Night dinner at the White Horse, Parsons Green, 25th Jan 2011. Very black with a little bit of beige head. Malty, chocolatey. Good malty flavours. It’s nice and simple, not too out there. Almost more of a schwarz than a stout. Bullit (4581) - Burgos, SPAIN - JUN 3, 2011

Cask @ Blackfriars. Almost black colour, reasonable head. Complex treacle malt & coffee aroma & flavour. Lingering aftertaste. Not bad. Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAY 28, 2011
Cask at O’Hara’s, Tampere. Opaque black color. Sweetish aroma with coffee, nuts and burnt sugar. Dryer coffeish flavor with strong medicinal note and some licorice. Unpleasantly plasticky and medicinal. Scopey (14511) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2011

On Cask at the White Horse, Parson’s Green. It pours near black with very low carbonation and a thin tan head. The nose is chocolate, roasted malt and burnt sugar. The taste is chocolate, some liquorice, brown sugar, a little grapefruit and charcoal. The body is quite light and the finish is fairly dry. I much prefer the richer, full-fat version of Riptide.
