Bottle: one of Octo’s ’sharing bottles’. Deep pitch with a dirty cream collar. Rusted iron, Bovril, shellfish, big dollop of butter in black coffee aroma. Buttered rust, rust-sprinkled black coffee with dunked burnt paper flavour. Thin, rusty and schwarz-like. Not without interest.
Rochdale Beer Festival 2016. Black with a light ordinary roasted malt character, but very drinkable. CaskSensei18 (1) - Lampeter, WALES - DEC 26, 2016 does not count
My local Fronfelin Arms in Temple Bar between Lampeter and Aberaeron. Steady flow of good beers on pump and gravity dispense. DeanF (2453) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 11, 2016
Aroma of roasted barley. Has a black body with little head. Flavour is good barley with hints of biscuit and shellfish. Okay finish. A good dark beer, but not too intense. RichTheVillan (7766) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2016

Bottle - dark with little - no head. Liquorice roast aroma and taste. Slight ting on tongue and in mouth. Thin feel, but lasting taste.

Gravity at Ludlow Spring Festival. Pours black brown with tan bubble. Quite a sweet well balanced session stout. Some liquorice, coffee bitterness. Nice. 47574xeCD (1123) - Coventry, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2014

Clear deep amber beer, small pale tan head. Palate is light, semi dry and minerally crisp. Very mild and thin dark malts. Super mild coffee and tang. Modest dark fruits before a light crisp finish. Mild malty caramel linger. Very lightweight.
500ml bottle from a Worcestershire petrol station. Colour is cola black with no real head. Aroma is is bitter, roast malt, with some coffee. These are also the predominant flavours. Higher than expected carbonation. imdownthepub (14469) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2014
Cask conditioned at The Railway Shed Brewhouse, Ludlow, Shrops. Dark chestnut with off white head. There is quite a nutty start to this, dark roasted malty flavours with a sweetish side to it and fruity aside. Plummy, slightly jammy. Not really a stout for me I would say.
