Bottled, from the brewpub. Black, minimal head. Rich coffee aroma. Dry wih medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Leather and coffee - lots of coffee. Salty finish. I like the concentrated heavily roasty coffee flavours. KyotoLefty (10193) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 24, 2012
Bottle from Chuwy. Nose of cola, chocolate and spice, wood. Nice enough. Near black, no head. Flavors of wood, coke, coffee, tangy but bland. Thin, with a bit of funk. Not really doing it for me.

500ml bottle (William IV, RBESG2011 Saturday)
Has a sour front, but a rich sweet finish. Good roast, burnt without being atringent. I donít like any sourness in my stouts 99% of the time, so the nose put me off this.
