Cask in the Cock Tavern, E8. Came a very dark black colour with not much head. Definitely an oily treacly feel, both in appearance and texture. As the blurb states it is hoppy but not overpoweringly so - allows the nice roasty stout character to come through and then leaves a nice moreish bitter finish. Good stuff!
Bottle at home in London - picked up at Kris Wines...a long while ago. I inadvertently aged this one. I think it’s two to three years of age. It pours clear, dark brown with a frothy, light khaki head. The nose has lots of ashy roast, tobacco, burnt leaves, faint cocoa. Light sweet flavour with prominent ashy roast, some dry earth, torched tobacco leaves, bitter cocoa, leather. Light bodied with average carbonation. Dry and bitter on the finish, with more steady and sturdy ash, hard bitter cocoa, old espresso. Pretty OK overall, in that hard-edged ashy kind of way.

Rebellion (Gipsy Hill), London (04/06/2015) - dark brown verging black pour with beige head. Medium roasted malty and hoppy aroma and taste, some caramel and chocolate notes to this as well. Nice.
Cask conditioned at Beer Rebellion, Gipsy Hill, London. Dark brown with white head. Quite thinnish on the palate for a stout, reasonably bitter and dry, hints of cereal malt, some roasty notes. It’s okay if bordering towards a mild. gowdy (1115) - Erskine, SCOTLAND - DEC 13, 2014

From London Beer Market and drunk at home. black beer lasting tan head. Quite a coffeeish stout. In fact very coffeeish. It’s quite tasty, could do with being a touch fuller in the mouth maybe. Some dryness on the finish. It’s fine. Coffee is ok. Stuu666 (14609) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 23, 2014

Cask at the wenlock. Expected a pale ale based on the name but instead got a hoppy, bitter stout. Hops to start, fading to a modest stout character, decent, some cocoa aroma.
