Fået som cask God fylde, helt træagtig i smagen, specielt i eftersmagen er den virkelig gennemtrængende, den har de klassiske noter af en porter, let brændt og chokolade. Med det den her øl vil blive husket for er helt klart smagen af træ. Det er næsten som at slikke et stykke brændt træ. Godt! Drukker på Turf Tarvern i Oxford, det er næsten helt som at sidde sammen med Inspector Morse, det gør det temmelig svært at bedømme øllen da den jo bare smager af mere så.

Cask @Tree Folk’s (Rome). Pours brown with a medium and persistent creamy off-white foam. Aroma of roasted malts, toffee, chocolate, milk, light coffee and licorice. Flavour is quite balanced, medium to light sweet with a decent bitter end, licorice in the aftertaste. Medium to light body, light carbonation. So so...

lokis333 (563) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - FEB 1, 2016
Clear very dark brown color, if not looking through light might look black with thick coffee foam. Aromas of roasted malt, bit of oats, milky, smooth dark chocolaty aromas. Palate, light body with thikish heavier but still slick texture (goes down very easy maybe bit watery?) But leaves nice dark smoked aftertaste in a way reminds of smoked beers. Taste is dark and not too bitter and bit watery taste to it, mainly dark malt taste dominates with dark coffee back taste. Overall, bit less than I thought, bit watery, bit missing the umph! light easy going stout, maybe has bit of metallic notes, more of a session one I would say but still nice! (from local morisons)

Halfling_4132 (104) - Essex, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2016
Appearance: Black/cola in colour with thick light brown foam. Aromas- Malt, roasted coffee, dark chocolate. Palate: thick smooth oily texture, medium/full bodied.Taste: Very heavy, bitter roasted smokey malt. Overall- I feel like i have just eaten coal! Too heavy to finish, and not something i’d choose but glad i tasted.

tdtm82 (1701) - Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2016
Bottle, from Morrsison’s supermarket, drunk at home, 15/01/2016 I tasted a lot of oats, a very thick porridge texture, treacle, tar, motor oi, velvet, Icelandic salted caramel sweets, toffee crisp candy, clotted cream, UK hops, oils, some dark brown sugar. Great stuff. Dry but very drinkable. No astringency. Also flavours of black peppercorn, blackcurrants and leather.

Many thanks to bobinlondon for the bottle!! Pours a super dark brown with a tan head. The smell is dark, roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee. The taste is dark an toasty malt, bitter dark chocolate, mild coffee ending very dry and toasty. Light in body with course carbonation...not very elegant. Overall just OK.

Bottle. Clear deep amber color, large fluffy tan head. Aroma of light roast. Taste is light sweet roast. Plain.

dj (625) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2015
Bottle, 500ml. Black colour with a small white head. Aroma has burnt notes but not much else. Flavour is very malty with smooth dark chocolate notes, some bread notes as well. A sweet, smooth finish. Very tasty.

JorgeLee (2194) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2015
In a bottle from Beers of Europe. Darkish black brown colour. Quite high carbonation. Some roasty flavours. Not overly dry, sweetish malts. Decent level of hop bitterness. A pleasant stout; would guess mouthfeel better on draught.
