Bottle at home ... Thanks to FIn for this one ... Deep black ... think coating head ... Deep roast malt nose ... nice complex roast malts little bitterness but lots and lots of chocolate... little milky ... great balance and depth ... little hop character shows in linger.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - OCT 14, 2007
Gravity, Oxford CAMRA beer festival. Black pour, a bit of dark tan head. Cheerio® aroma, chocolate milk, a dose of iodine. Oceany roast and chocolate, full flavor and lots of old-fashioned character.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2007
A Mes rate: 50cl bottle. Black with a tan head. Coffee and malt with some alka seltzer. A proper stout with some brown sugar notes. Fairly run of the mill but very enjoyable.

rauchbier (3908) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2007
Bottle. Jet black, quickly dropping coffee brown head and moderate condition. Excellent sweet coffee, chocolate, roast barley and slight smokiness in the nose, oily liquorice in the mouth with a muted roasted dryness and a gentle coffee bitterness tempered by a slightly fruity note, lingering liquorice and coffee sweetness in the finish.

Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. Nice enough. Coffee (gentle), smooth malty roast. Friendly sugar also. Quite sweet, sinkable. BHlack, no head. Thin, sweaty mouthfeel.

Cask (handpulled) at Derby Winter Beer Festival 2005. Well roasted, slighty sweeter in the finish, burnt flavours overpowered any chocolate complexity.

[email protected] Albans BF. Pretty rich chocolate and butterscotch, heavily roasty and a bit tarry, not overly bitter, but very tasty.
