Scopey (15747) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2015
Cask at Three Judges. It pours near black with a thick off-white head. The nose is toasty, earthy, mild smoke, liquorice and sweet roast. The taste is tangy dark malt & acidity upfront, blackcurrant, jammy fruit compote, spicy, charred wood, burnt action and chewy malt with a dry, toasty finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Aroma is decent, but it’s tastes infected. Tangy and charry. Not great at all. Stuartyboy (1760) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - OCT 4, 2013

Cask at The Land of Liberty in Chorleywood, Hertfordshire on 14 July 2013.
Poured a dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma or dark chocolate and roasted malt. Disappointingly watery mouth feel. Initial sweet flavours of dark fruit. Palate has some nice burnt malt and coffee bitterness. Theydon_Bois (20636) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2012
Gravity dispense at the twelfth Twickenham Beer Festival - 18/10/12.
Light shade of black - dark mahogony brown in the light with a bubbly tan head.
Light roast malt on the nose, a little toffee and hints of liquorice.
Taste follows nose pretty much spot on.
Medium bodied with moderate carbonation leading to a dry finish. worldbeertaste (1818) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2012
Vey thin watery body. Black with a brown tint and a lasting thin frothy tan head. Smell of roasted malt, cofee and chocolate. A little flowery. Roasted sweet start, bitter chocolate middle. And a smooth finish. Rasin and fruitiness. Not bad.

Beer Festival 2010. Black beer with a mildly roasted aroma and a bitter and roasted flavour. Overall an average stout.
Cask, Leicester Fest 10. Dark brown with a beige head. Aromas are malty and oaty with light roast coffee. Flavours are chocolate and coffee malts with oat notes. Some berry fruitiness with a fruity sweetness. A bit flat but OK. imdownthepub (15333) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2010
Cask conditioned at Fleetwood Beer Festival, Fleetwood, Lancs. Black with tan head. Straight off into a really smooth velvety beer, lovely tarry flavours but with a balancing fruity background. A really pleasant stout, good stuff.
