Cask (gravity) - Norwich Beer Festival, 2012. Poured a clear, dark brown with a loose & bubbly light tan head atop. Coffee, dark fruits & roasted malts on the nose. More coffee, coffee filter, lightly tangy mid to dark fruits and berries to taste. Light to medium body, soft palate texture, lingering tanginess & a modest length, dryish coffee, ash & roasted malt finish.
Cask at the Castle - Manchester. Pours deep brown with a dense, creamy beige head. Hearty coffee aroma, with sturdy roast, cocoa. Medium sweet flavor with nice and true bitter coffee character, bittersweet baking cocoa, some scorched earth. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation and creamy texture. Nicely balanced on the finish, but still with assertive coffee character, mellow earth, burnt toast, chocolate. Great coffee stout, and the depth of character is quite impressive given the relatively low ABV. teorn88 (7682) - Rimini, ITALY - OCT 20, 2015

Craft near Tottenham Ct Rd war zone. Caso. Opaque dark brown beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth and semi dry. Not much carbonation. Mellow earthy coffee. Touch of tangy sweetness. Light semi dry finish. Mild coffee linger. A bit tired.
Cask conditioned at The Gardners Arms, Lewes, E.Sussex. Dark chestnut with off white head. There is a rich, darkly roasted maltiness to this overlaid with a slightly bitter coffee, powdery, slightly milky. Reasonable enough. RichTheVillan (7936) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2014
Keg at The Wellington; dark brown pour with thin tan head, big coffee aroma, taste is sweet along with loads of coffee, quite thin mouthfeel, coffee definitely added post brew very instant and artificial but I enjoyed it all the same.
