Aroma is dark and malty, flavours of dark roast coffee and malt. Absolutely lovely.

Cask @ Rushden Historical Transport Society. Impenetrable black witha beige head. Beech smoke and seawater dominate the aroma. The taste is nothing short of incredible: sweet/salty with a meaty umami finish and aftertaste. Full creamy palette. This is a perfect oyster stout, the stuff that dreams are made of.

Bottle at Chris_o’s The Wolf tasting. I really am going to have to get some more of this from the brewery. Very deep ruby colour with thin tan head. Good roasted malt, very deep and rich, rather lovely. Good in mouth, rich thick and excellent. wheresthepath (2333) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2011
[330ml bottle from The Bottleneck, Broadstairs] Deep ruby-black with a moderate tan head. There’s a slight fizz but a smooth, rich, creamy mouthfeel. Plain chcolate dominates at first, followed up by a strong (but not too burnt) roastiness. Port, liquorice and blackberries develop, and there’s a spicy kick in the finish. An interesting and complex stout that’s a delight to drink. Nice one!

Tap @ Cafe de Rat. Dark brown coloured with a thin beige head. Nose is roasted malts, coffee, bread. Flavour of roasted malts, coffee, bit of dark fruits. Fairly dry. Light roasty finish. AndrewC (376) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2010
Bottled in July 2010. Black. Low carbonation with frothy ring to the head. Smells a little of molasses, a little of charcoal and a little of blackjack sweets. Roasted flavours dominate to start followed by a slight sourness and some alcoholic liquorish burn. Finish is roasted malt. Hopping rate seems low with some leafy hop flavour hiding in the background. Cracking little beer. a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2013
Bottle; black, with the merest hint of ruby brown at the edges, next to no head; roast malt aroma; gentle roast malt and ripe berry fruit flavour; light sweetness; dry, bitter finish with some nice smoky chocolate; smooth and beautifully balanced; I’ve had a few stouts recently from some much vaunted breweries, but this is one of the best. caesar (7133) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2016
Tap @ cafe derat, medium sample. Dark color, short frothy head. Aroma of roast, dark bread, blackcurrant, bit rye bread, earthy hops. Soft malty bitterness, smooth coffee notes. Velvety mouthfeel. Lovely beer. skortila (5850) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2016
