Dark brown, almost black; medium creamy white head; aroma of dried dark fruit and malt; taste is smooth, lactic, surprisingly fruity (dark fruits, berries), milk chocolate; slight bitter tingle on the long fruity finish; roast malts become more prominent towards the end; very good stuff.

Beth101 (531) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2014
Pours black with a large tan head. Has a lovely sweet aroma of coffee, chocolate and burnt toast. Smooth creamy flavour of coffee and burnt toast. Possibly the nicest stout I’ve had!

4.2
mt_hall (201) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2014
Bottled. Jet black with a small, light brown head. Coffee, toffee, and a hint of leather on the nose. Creamy smooth with a touch of acidity, quite a bit of sweetness, and a long finish of coffee and chocolate. Only improvement would be a bit more body. Excellent.

3.4
witthatsbier (566) - glasgow, SCOTLAND - DEC 31, 2013
aroma is malt with dark chocolate, lactic tone pours dark brown with beige head that does not last taste is sweet with a little sourness and very little bitterness body is thin overall ok but not a great or even good stout

2.8
leebotton (406) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2013
Pours thick. Coffee aromas with a hint of vanilla. Black with minimal tan head. Tastes bitter coffee notes with a somewhat metallic taste. Nice burnt, nutty taste on the back of the tongue but tainted with something less admirable. Not especially thick, slightly disappointed with this one but my standards are pretty high.

3.2
Pizd (435) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2013
(Bottle): Pours black with a small tan head. Chocolate, coffee, roasted malt aroma. Mostly coffee and roasted malt taste, slight sweet notes like milky chocolate, cappucino etc. A tad watery and predictable.
