colui72 (746) - HONG KONG - AUG 27, 2016
Whenever Buxton is involved with my palate its a joy! This is a very classic stout, extremely rich and tasty. It pours oil black with a medium brown head and good lacing. Aroma is roasted malts, smoke, chocolate fudge. Complex taste with roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, tobacco, leather, vanilla. A thick dark treasure of dark lingering flavours. Perfect!

Bottle. It pours jet black with a creamy brown head. The aroma is bitter dark chocolate, coffee, toffee and a little smoke. Mild roasted. Quite thick mouthfeel. Quite bitter roasted flavor that leaves notes of coffee, tobacco and light tar. Dark chocolate notes. Full flavored for the abv. Very nice!

3fourths (9265) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 9, 2016
Bottled dated July 18 2014 pours black with a dark brown head of limited retention. Aroma impression is malty in the way of dark chocolate, roast, ash, nougat, fudge cake; yeasty-phenolic in the way of metal flakes / iron / blood; minimally hoppy and only slightly oxidized. Medium-full body, semi-sweet to off-dry, rich and savory with fine carbonation. I would prefer the carbonation be more lively-frothy, and would think more aroma hops would suit the phenol and malt well (though two years old is certainly no fair age to judge a beers hoppiness), but as it is its expressive and nuanced enough to make things interesting.

ciocanelu (1728) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUN 24, 2016
Pitch black color with creamy, mocha colored head. Aroma has a more classic, english style profile with sweet malts and dark fruit notes. Taste starts bittersweet and fruity with roasted malt character and dark chocolate. Finishes more bitter with a slight acidity from the roasted malts. Medium to full bodied with medium to low carbonation and smooth mouthfeel. Overall its a really good, well made stout.
