The_Osprey (9999) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2017
Cask handpull at Draft House Hammersmith as Dark Star Espresso Stout. Pours dark black with a red hue, foamy brown head. Aroma is filter coffee, espresso with some toffeeish malt. Body is smooth, quite light with a soft tingle at front of tongue. Taste is fudgey malt, quite watery to start but then a building dry and bitter coffee ground vibe. Tasty but yet light enough to be very drinkable. Ever so slightly tart. Maybe a little overly drying the note you drink. Still, I like it.

Cask. Aroma - you can smell the coffee and roasted toffee malt. It pours black with tan cream top. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied with soft to flat carbonation slightly oily feel and a bitter finish. It's a black coffee beer and if I see it again I will urge it on others.

What it says on tin coffee dominant throughout, hops come through in aftertaste. Nice if you’re looking for coffee stout whish tastes like real coffee. Could maybe do with more malt body to balance out the beer:coffee ratio a bit ianwelby (1616) - SCOTLAND - JUN 22, 2017

Cask at The Hop Inn, Newcastle-Under-Lyme. A black colour with a medium beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, some chocolate, slight caramel and subtle hazelnut. Taste of roasted malts, coffee, some chocolate, slight caramel, a little hazelnut and subtle earth. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A dryish, roasted, coffee bitterness in the finish. A less powerful aroma compared to the bottle version but this is a lot more balanced. Very roasty and well bodied for its strength. Good. Iznogud (5060) - CROATIA - MAY 4, 2016
