Beer Festival 2007. Dark beer with a light brown head. The aroma is fishy and the flavour is quite bitter and fishy. Overall a strange fishy beer.
Cask, Leicester Fest 07. Very dark brown with a beige head. Aromas are earthy roast coffee with liqourice and dark chocolate. Flavours are good bitter roast coffee with sweet malts in the background. Bitter dark chocolate and liqourice. Has a good roast finish. Very good. DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2006

Black colour with some alcohol. Slightly rich on the palate. Bitter roast finish with a little dryness. TomSpears (65) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2005
Cask. Kings Arms as usual. A good stout as stouts go. Black as yer ’at and twice as tasty. All the usual suspects. Gazza (726) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2004
Jet black in colour, and it has a sharp, roasty and camp-fires like smokiness to it but also a lot of roast, liquoricey and surprisingly juicy maltiness. A bit smoky for me, but not a bad beer. (Cask @ Lowes Arms, Denton)

Albans BF. Pretty tarry and bitter stuff. Lots of coffee and dark chocolate, rich flavour, tasty stuff.
An intense black, rich, coffee accented stout. As others have noted, licorice, roast malt and bitter chocolate are also in evidence. Sumptuous, smooth, mouthfeel. Excellent stuff that bodes well for this new brewery. Cask (gravity dispense) at St Albans Beer Festival 2004.

Engine oil black with a rich smooth head. Silky and very roasted. I’ve written it again ’Silky’. It must have been the clearest impression in what was rapidly becoming a losing battling, what with Joeh insisting on try all the worlds strongest beers again. Maniac.
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - St Albans Beer Festival. A rich chocolate treacle aroma to this black stout. A chewy roasty taste with lots of malt and some good licquorice notes. Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2004
Cask Conditioned @ the Saturday session, St Albans Beer Festival 2004. Beer #21. Stout. Buttery, roasty, evident alcohol and pretty rich. Quite nice.
