johndoughty (5543) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2016
Can. Black with a small head.Dry with traces of chocolate and coffee in background. An excellent easy to drink stout that tasted fresh. Well worth trying.

3.4
ShivanDragon (4618) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2016
Can 33 cl, black with a fine brown head. Aroma of hughe coffee, roasted and toasted malts. Taste is quite dry, hughe amount of coffee, a bit on the strong side, sharp, spicy, hop bitterness, roasted/toasted, chocolate, cacao, powder-ish dry.

3.5
tiong (7635) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 26, 2016
330ml can from Ales by Mail. BBE 28/11/16. Pours pitch black with a small light brown head. Aroma of ash, mild roastiness, hints of licorice, grass and fruits. Taste is slightly watery with some roastiness, hops, grass, ash and fruits. Finish is crisp, bitter and slightly ashy with mild roastiness, cold coffee and grassy hops. A bit unbalanced.

3.6
uckelman (813) - Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2016
33cl can. Black, opaque. Small ring of tan head. Somewhat piney aroma. Can definitely taste the West-Coast hops. It’s almost like a black IPA. Medium body. Mineral and fizz on the finish.

2.9
sarauckelman (550) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2016
Dark brown with thick head. Slightly citrusy aroma, but the predominant flavor is hopps, with a slight bit of coffee underneath. Medium bodied and a bit sticky. More like a black IPA than a stout.

3.8
The_Osprey (9159) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2016
330ml can at home in Richmond as ’Roosters Ragged Point’, 5%, BB Nov 2016. Black with a huge dense foamy brown head that sounds like Rice Crispies. Aroma is earthy, lightly floral, dark chocolate, light metallics. Body is frothy with soft carbonation, but smooths out over time. Taste is breathy floral hops, chocolate and black coffee, earthy, some oily pine, touches of lime with an astringent floral finish. Sitting on the border between BIPA and stout, as expected with the hops involved. I’d say it just creeps in to the stout category with its ashy, coffee bean richness. Very nice. At £2.30, you really can’t go far wrong.

gegwilson (3803) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2016
Can from rehills of Jesmond. Black with a frothy beige head. Pine and chocolate aroma. The taste is spice and pine over chocolate. Nice bitter finish. Very good.

4.3
zacgillbanks (5506) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2016
Can from Coppers, Newcastle. Black-brown with a thick head of tan foam. It has a rich spicy red fruit, chocolate and sarsaparilla flavour with a creamy bitter roasted coffee, pine and grapefruit finish. Excellent!
