Gravicask at Tuckers Malting Beer Festival. Deep dark brown body, spotty lacing from a dissipating beige head. Chocolate nose, smooth and inviting. Sweet flavours of honey, chocolate and earth malts followed by a backdrop of dark fruits. Fine bodied. A nice one.

Bottle from brewer’s own stand at Mapledurham Food Festival. Amber-brown with a thin off-white head. Toffee, roasty malt, a touch of chocolate and a whisper of blackberry. Doesn’t taste its strength and doesn’t taste like a stout either - I’d have guessed it was a 4.7% ESB. Pleasant enough though, but pretty forgettable.

Bottle Dan brought back from Devon, shared at his. Poured dark brown with a moderate beige head. Aroma of chocolate, light coffee and roasted malt. Light to medium sweetness, moderate roasted bitterness. Toward being medium bodied, oily texture, below average carbonation. Gary (1999) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2016
500ml . Bottle. In a tulip . Ruby brown and not resembling any fucken stout I’m accustomed with in body ... Wow this is a racist beer ... Khaki head is subtle and lazy . Nose of chocolate and sugars and roast . Tastes like a chocolate cake in nuance , one where the richness of chocolate mixes well with sour bitter dark fruit berry texture . This tastes pretty decent , but as a stout purist, I gotta ask what the fuck kinda colour is that ? It’s almost dark Amber . A 3 because it still looks decent , even though it’s totally wrong!

Disparate head over hazy light-brown beer (stout???). Bottom solid yeast. Woody nose, chocolate malt, pencil(wood). Chocolate, sweetish, lightly coloured malts. Acidity backthroat (light). Quite well-bodied for its ABV. Feels better carbonated than it looks. I agree - "Brown Jack" doesn’t sound very comestible. But this Jack ain’t black! Txs to Stef!

Bottle from Crocombe’s, Lynmouth. Mid-brown with no head. Described as a ’light stout’ it is in colour, and surprisingly so in its taste given its strength, we which is not overly obvious. There’s a sweetness amongst its roasted malts in its nose, and this is more dominant in its taste. Theydon_Bois (19481) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2016
