cassa (11) - Torino, ITALY - MAY 10, 2015
Piacevole Stout con un leggerissimo sentore di mare oltre ai classici cioccolato e caffè. Spuma non molto persistente ma bel colore Ebano per la birra e nocciola per la schiuma. Beverina e non troppo alcolica.

Mr_Pink_152 (5400) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2014
On tap at the Sawn Inn Almondsbury. Deep black colour with a tan head. Aroma has toasted malts. The taste has toasted malt too but was a touch watery, and had a acrid aftertaste.

3.1
imdownthepub (15129) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2014
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Very dark brown with tan head. There is a sweet, oily character to this, some plumminess, some ageing wine like notes. The sweetness does tend to dominate somewhat, hints of dark roasted barley. It’s ok.

3.5
BeerViking (4980) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2014
Cask at the Kings Tun, pours black with a tan head, smooth and fruity at first, then richer as it loses the cellar chill. The nose has old wine, plus hints of plum and coffee. Dry, fruity and faintly plummy-tart, halfway between watery and creamy, roasted malt with a touches of ash.

3.1
mr_h (5828) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - NOV 3, 2014
Cask by hand-pump at Camperdown Place, Glasgow (2014 Winter Festival) - opaque dark brown near black, good tan head, roasted malty aroma with fruity sweetness, negligible lacing, sweet, creamy, fruity, oily feel, good carbonation

3.3
leaparsons (10696) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2014
Cask, The Lord Keeper of the Great Seal, Oadby. Near black with a thin head. Aromas are nutty dark chocolate and earthy coffee with blackberries. Some underlying toffee with cheap cola and spicy notes. Flavours are sweet cola with herbal liquorice and roast malts. Leafy, peppery hops. Decent.
