Bottle at Delday’s house. Pours with a large head, which is slightly off white colour, actually I guess it is quite beige. A strong tasting brew. Nice.
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. pours almost black with a foamy bubbly tan head. Looks nice but I would liked the head form tighter. Aromas has lots of smooth chocolate tones. A dry grain, mild fruity floral, hazelnut praline and a little tar. The beer is nice and smooth for the medium body. A gentle carbonation makes for easy drinking. The flavours are stronger compared to the nose. A smooth roasted malt and a tart fruitiness that’s something like red grape juice but I can’t quite put my finger on. A smoky aftertaste a little like tar lingers gently. For the moderate abv I reckon this is an excellent stout. Smooth aromas and flavours and not too heavy bodied makes for a real sessionable stout. Nicely balanced. daniele (9888) - ITALY - NOV 19, 2017

Bottle in Inverness, Scotland. Pours dark, black with beige head. Aroma of malts and licorice. Rich in flavor, some malt, some roast, a faint idea of smoke and licorice. Very subtle bitterness in the palate. After all a very decent Stout. Grumbo (4262) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2017

bottle on Loch Ness tour boat --- Aroma of dark malt. Taste is malt with strong carbonation that adds burlap and hay. It’s billed as a milk stout, but I can’t detect any lactose. Average overall. Obviously brewed for the masses.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2017 Bottle, Tesco. Pours black with tan head. Head dissipates quickly. Aroma of roast barley. Taste is coffee, charcoal, sweet malt and a slight creaminess to it . Medium to thin body. OK, would have been better if it was on draft as I found it a bit thin for the style Lonick (2537) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 21, 2016

Pours black, tan head which went in seconds. Nose is coffee, vegetables, malty, uncooked steak. Taste is slight bitter coffee which turns into a sweetish aftertaste.
500ml bottle from Morrisons, which I picked up for £1 !!!!! Pours jet black as expected with a 2 finger tan head. Nutty sweet treackle malty creamy nose. Taste is really good; chocolate milky roasted nutty malt with a nice bitter finish. One of the nicest tasting stouts I’v had in a while, very thick mouth feel too for a 4.4 abv beer. Impressed will be buying more. WaddlingPlatypus (186) - Durham, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2016
500ml bottle. Dark brown pour with a caramel head. Aroma of rich cinder toffee and roasted malt. Pale flavour of cinder toffee and syrupy treacle with cream, bolstered by a strong dark stout flavour.
