witthatsbier (579) - glasgow, SCOTLAND - DEC 31, 2013

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.

joe19612 (3020) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2013
Bottle. Black colour with a beige head, aroma is malty with some chocolate as well, the taste is sweet and soft with a slight bitter aftertaste.

Lonick (2537) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 10, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2016 Ever so slightly breakfast cereal, no quite a lot like a breakfast cereal straight-up. A nice burnt (but not overly-so) after taste. Cask @ The Hanging Bat, Edinburgh. Quick re-rate much nicer and fuller in flavour in cask without being much different to the bottle, very nice.

3.5
Idiosynkrasie (7839) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2013
500ml bottle. Darkest brown colour with huge, creamy, fully lasting, minimally lacing, tan head. Chocolately aroma with a grainy touch, cookies, some grassy hop and hay. Taste is moderately sweet dark malty, some sugar, a fresh sourish touch, dry, minimally grassy hoppy finish.

OwainTurner (425) - Leicester, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2013
Coffee, sweet aroma. No head. Really, really smooth... Lovely coffee flavour. Very nice indeed.

3.4
evergreen0199 (3460) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2013
Cask at Pelt Trader, Cannon Street, London. A black coloured pour with a medium off white head on top. Malty, chocolate aroma. Tastes malty, chocolate, roasty, slight coffee. Highly drinkable stout.

3.7
Grumbo (3753) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle at The Beer Emporium, Bristol. Pours a clear, very dark brown colour, with a small beige head. Sweet roasted aroma of chocolate, caramel and coffee. Good body, low carbonation. Sweet and roasted chocolate finish. Enjoyable.
