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. (Newton Abbot 27.04.2017).

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from brewerís 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. Doesnít taste its strength and doesnít taste like a stout either - Iíd have guessed it was a 4.7% ESB. Pleasant enough though, but pretty forgettable.

500ml . Bottle. In a tulip . Ruby brown and not resembling any fucken stout Iím 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 ? Itís almost dark Amber . A 3 because it still looks decent , even though itís 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" doesnít sound very comestible. But this Jack ainít black! Txs to Stef!

Bottle from Crocombeís, Lynmouth. Mid-brown with no head. Described as a ílight stoutí it is in colour, and surprisingly so in its taste given its strength, we which is not overly obvious. Thereís a sweetness amongst its roasted malts in its nose, and this is more dominant in its taste.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Deep brown pour with little to no head. Subtle notes of coffee with dark maltiness. Well balanced. More of a Porter then a Stout. Very enjoyable.
