Theydon_Bois (20920) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, - OCT 7, 2012
Gravity dispense at Ascot Racecourse Beer Festival 2012 - 06/10/12. Listed in the program and on the badge as 4.6% ABV. Dark mahogony brown vergeing on black with a thin tan head. Roast malt nose, molasses, bitter chocolate. Taste follows nose with a little smokeiness to the flavour. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation leading to a dry finish. A decent stout.

Fra cask på Three Tuns Bristol 30 Apr 17. Svart. Lysebrunt skum langs glasset. Bra aroma av røstet malt. Smaken melkesjokolade. I søtligste laget men ok.

Rune (13647) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 7, 2017
Cask ale, half-pint, at Orange Tree, Chelmsford. Low, fawn-coloured head to a near-black body. Aroma of liquorice and coffee. The flavour character brings moments of dark dough, liquorice and a a backdrop of coffee, carefully roasted. Easy to drink. Satisfying (Shared with Cunningham 19.02.2017).

Cunningham (8456) - Halden, NORWAY - MAR 5, 2017
Black color with a beige head on top. Good intensity in the aroma. Medium body and a fine carbonation level. Semi dry ending. Chocolate, roast and some fruity notes. A quite nice and decent stout. Very session able.
[Handpull at Orange Tree in Chelmsford, England]

SilkTork (5884) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2017
Tram Stop, Southampton. A modest, drinkable stout, quite clean and fresh tasting. There’s a nudge of raisins and alcohol in the background. Likable, but only mildly interesting.

[GBBF 2016, Olympia] - Plain Ales Inncognito, 4.8%. Schuckeschwarz, wenig, cremiger Schaum. Ein traditionelles Stout mit der üblichen Mischung aus schokoladigen, Kaffee und Lakritznoten. Mitteldichte Textur, kaum wässrig. Ordentlich.

Cask at GBBF 2016, Olympia, London. A black coloured pour with a medium beige head on top. Roasty, malty, chocolate aroma. Tastes quite similar, roasty, malty, chocolate, dark fruit. Rich tasting stout, very nice indeed.
