500ml bottle pours black in color with a 3 finger light brown head that retains well and leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted grains, vanilla and chocolate with hints of licorice. Taste is a roasted grain bitterness with a light chocolate malty sweetness finishing with vanilla and hints of licorice. Body is a little bit light for the style and carbonation is adequate. Overall, a decent brew, but could use more malt. jamaty (2268) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015

Dry stout molto scura con un cappello di schiuma beige invidiabile, molto persistente. Aroma un po piatto. Buona al palato con una secchezza limitata, sentori di caffè. Molto frizzante. Fin (11059) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2015
Bottle courtesy of Theydon Bois (cheers Colin) consumed at mum’s, Worcester, Friday 10th April 2015 Looks great, pours black with gorgeous big frothy tan head, 5/5 for appearance. Very dry, really roasty, no sweetness at all. Nice soft carbonation, tangy fruit, pleasant. A6 A5 T7 P4 Ov13 3.5 Metalflake (73) - Les Coteaux, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 31, 2015
500ml bottle, brought back from Ireland by my wife. Poured into a shaker, appearance is jet black with a nice 2cm head that lasted about half the glass. Nice delicate lacing on the glass. Aromas of chocolate, vanilla and coffee, nice and roasty. Malty, with a mild, understated bitterness. Medium carbonation, with a slick oily mouthfeel. A very, very good stout, possibly my new favourite in this style.
