Leighton (22307) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2013
Bottle at home in London. Many thanks to Tomer for the trade! Pours deep brown with a sturdy, dark beige foam head. Some greasy, meaty dark malts in the nose, bit of tangy cocoa, moderate roast and the bottom of a coffee pot. Light to medium sweet flavor with plenty of ashy roasted malts, chocolate, faint licorice, dark malts, well toasted sugars, light bitter burnt wood and earth. Light to medium bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Light sweetness to finish, some flinty dark malts, pleasant bittersweet cocoa, light roast, ash, mellow tobacco, low bitterness. Very drinkable stout. There are actually some really rewarding layers to this beer. Nice work!

An impressive stout.

njnut (486) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Poured into pint glass from bottle. Pours a wonderful black. Small dark tan head. Thick lacing. Aroma was of roasted malt, basement. I did not get the coffee others picked up. I also saw a lower co2 than others. Bottom of bottle was thick in yeast. A bitter taste, medium. I picked up roasted malt, oats, with a long coffee, alcohol finish. Body was full, texture was oily. Nice very suprising and enjoyable. Good effort.
