Rune (12587) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2014
Cask, third pint at Mr Foley’s in Leeds. Creamy, tan-coloured head blanketing the glass. Almost black in body appearance. Caramel and liquorice on the nose, semi-dry. Dark chocolate, wood and caramel flavours. Soft on the swallow. Appreciated (08.07.2014).

Brownish black with a white head. Aroma of roasted malts. Taste of malts and a hint of coffee. Nice stout but not much chocolate.

Beese (2669) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2014
Cask at The Falcon, Battersea on 29 March 2013. Poured black, with a thin, but dense tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, treacle and burnt sugar. Good, full mouth feel. Dark chocolate flavour, with some sticky fruit and coffee. Finish was burnt malt, cocoa and molasses.

rikstar (2602) - NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2014
o,5l fles meegebracht uit York. Donker bruin, met een beperkte witte kraag. Aroma is duidelijk cacao met geroosterde mout op de achtergrond. Smaak is mooi bitter, mondgevoel is tikkeltje dun, nasmaak is redelijk vol.

On draught at beer festival. Luxurious stout, with a great chocolate finish, would have liked it a little cooler. Would like to try a bottle.

downender (8584) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2014
Cask-conditioned at the Gryphon, Bristol 1/3/2014. Jet black with a slight, off-white head. Big chocolate notes throughout, some toastiness and a dryish finish. Very good.

s_hartshorne (2767) - wakefield, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle bier huis ossett. Black colour no head. Aroma slight chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is similar. Good body soft carbonation. Ok but would have liked a lot more chocolate hence the name!

ManVsBeer (10250) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2014
Bottle from Booths. Very dark, no head. Has lots of chocolate malt in the nose and a light smattering in its taste, all in a fine body.

blokeley (7) - ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2013 does not count
The real cocoa shines through, and only a strong dark beer like a stout could take it. It works well and I’d have another!

gegwilson (3671) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2013
Bottle from Booth’s in Ripon. Pours very deep ruby, almost black with tan head. Bitter dark chocolate aroma and flavour with a dry burnt toast finish. A nice well balanced chocolate stout that is quite light and easy to drink.
