ForlornHope (454) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours a red-black colour with a tight head. Aroma of rich, roasted malt and coffee. Taste is slightly sweet, then nicely dry and bitter. More dry bitterness to follow with a dusty, almost smoky feel. Plain and dry stout that is nonetheless satisfying. A very nice beer.

FrenchieK (20) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2015
Pours ruby-black with a small frothy off-white head. Very nice aroma of light hops, roasted coffee, grain and chocolate. Flavour is predominantly roasted malt followed by some hops. Palate was a little harsh. A very good stout.

bottiglia. Ottima session stout. nGli aromi ci sono tutti caff cioccolato liquerizia etc. si ripropongono in bocca delicatamente senza affaticare il palato che resta abbastanza pulito grazie a note amare secche. A me piace

MichaelAwesome (6497) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2014
Fr ein Stout ungewhnlich frisch und angenehm in der milden Wrze mit ein wenig Pfeffer, etwas Krutern und angenehm im Malz. Recht einfach zu trinken mit einer feinen Sure zum Schluss hin. Nicht schlecht.

Bottle brought home from England. Pours out in a deep black colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of torf and malt. Taste of torf, malt, nuts, barley, bread, coffee and herbs. Easy drinkable with a dry finish. Enjoyed it.

Coffee, dark chocolate, grains and roasted malts in the aroma. Dark brown with a red tint. Tan head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a average carbonation. Overall not a bad stout, but i would like a little bit less carbonation
