JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Bottle from a newsagent in Uxbridge. Deep brown pour with some hints of ruby and a thin, but consistent carbonation. Soft caramel and molasses in the nose, along with some choc and char. Off to a good start. Body is a bit on the thin side, but has a nice consistency - milky with some grit, appropriate to style. Slight fruitiness emerges but generally tastes quite intensely roasty. Good thing, since I enjoy that flavor for a dry stout.

19Oracolo78 (171) - ITALY - MAR 5, 2017
Birra dal colore marrone scurissimo. Schiuma color caffellatte fine e persistente. Al palato ben strutturata con note di malto torrefatto, cioccolato amaro e caffč. Finale amaro e lievemente secco. Una birra molto particolare e piacevole.

Vulgaris (22) - POLAND - MAR 2, 2017
Nalewa się czarne, z obfitą beżową pianą. W zapachu czuć palone słody i czarną kawę. Zdecydowanie kawowe, z nutami gorzkiej czekolady, lekko dymne, goryczka niewielka, przyjemna. Piwo wodniste, piję się szybko, smak ucieka, jednak pozostawia przyjemny posmak.

Cokemonkey11 (768) - - FEB 16, 2017
Bottle. Pours black with a thin rim. Scent is medium notes of toasted malt and some slightly undesirable notes like rubber. Taste is fairly plain Stout notes with some spices almost reminiscent of Christmas spices. Finish is peppery. Good.

Pallleon (289) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 6, 2017
Étcsokoládés, pörkölt malátás könnyed száraz stout. Nem rossz, de ittam már sokkal jobbat is.

Draught at Porter& Sons, stable long lasting creamy head, opaque black color with some deep reddish taints, aroma of coffee with toasty and charred notes, flavor of chocolate and coffee with some charred notes, light bitterness, smooth and very nicely balanced. Very good and highly enjoyable.
