Classic roasty, sweet, minerally profile, good stout. Quite syrupy, some chalky character, very nice.
Black as the night with a bubbly tan head. Ok intensity in the aroma. Fine body and a fine carbonation level. Quite balanced sweetness. Coffee, toffee and some roast in the flavor. Tasty and easy drinkable stout. FatPhil (15975) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 12, 2017

For Anna, a lovely roasty chocolatey aroma, taste likewise. For me, a lovely espresso aroma, taste likewise. We’re agreed, whatever it’s like, it’s a lovely rich roast. Superb drinkability. Finish dry and woody - lovely!

Gravity cask at the Cambridge Winter Ales Festival 2017. Very dark brown and translucent with a tonsure of khaki head. Smells of oak with some liquorice and stone fruit. Taste is far too sweet but I’m mollified by the spicy hop and smoky liquorice which usher in the finish. Still there’s an artifice milky sweetness - like a chocolate milk drink - in the aftertaste. A tough one to rate as it is such a mixed bag. Grumbo (2856) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2016
Cask at the Spread Eagle, Ipswich. Pours black with a lasting off white head. Aroma of chocolate, malt, toffee, molasses. Light milky sweetness, moderate bitterness. Medium to full bodied, sticky texture, soft carbonation. Finish is slightly smokey. A good stout. zacgillbanks (5128) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2016
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. Inky black-brown in colour with a rapidly disappearing head of foam. It has a liquorice, chocolate and tart red fruity flavour followed by oak and coffee on the finish. Pretty good.
