The_Osprey (7731) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2015
500ml bottle, BB Mar 2016, 6.6%. Black, big dense foamy tan head, light lacing. Aroma is yeasty, coffee, cocoa powder, earth, burnt spices. Body is medium, pretty smooth, low carbonation. Taste is creamy and custardy with some burnt notes, roasted malts, yeast and some metallics. Some nice aspects to this, but has a bit of a harsh metallic finish. Decent stout.

Bottle. Head disappears almost immediately. Milk, toast and liquorice. Smooth too. It just seems flat - as if it's been opened for a day or two. Pity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

at_the_hop (109) - Worcestershire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2015
Sweet burnt butterscotch with a lingering smokiness and hint of liquorice at the finish and sweetness on the lips. Malts are held off with a light hoppiness and nice dry quality. For the style and strength it goes down real easy. Cocoa is in there but can’t taste the vanilla. Solid stout.

Vighals (3731) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - APR 4, 2015
Svart med lavt lys brunt skum. Toffee, skogsbær, kakaobønner og kaffelukt. Smaker salt lakris, bitter kaffe og lett søtlig brunt sukker. Medium fyller. Kort salt avslutning, medium kullsyre.

mgajdaczewa (1982) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 29, 2015
W aromacie czekolada i orzechy, nieco przyciężki, ale ujdzie. W smaku za to o tyle ciekawe, że orzechy wyraźnie dominują nad czekoladą, do tego niskie nasycenie i raczej wytrawne. Dodatek kakao i wanilii niewyczuwalny. Poprawne.

Towey1989 (2457) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2015
Cask at The Reginald Mitchell, Hanley (JDW) A black colour with a foamy off white head. Aroma of roasted malt, toast, burnt caramel, vanilla, oats and chocolate. Taste of roasted malt, caramel, oats, chocolate, vanilla and some berry. Full bodied and a smooth texture. A roasted oat finish. A full flavoured, smooth stout, more oaty and sweeter than I expected but nice.

berkshirejohn (6371) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2015
50cl bottle from B&M, Reading. A deep reddish chestnut pour with a billowing beige head; aroma of raisins with a touch of vanilla; sweet soft and grainy in the mouth, with a definite taste of oats, but also red fruit and sweet vanilla fudge; and a dry finish with lingering red fruits and coffee. A rather good stout.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2016 Picked up at b and m for a bargain price doesn’t taste a strong beer at all its hard to pick up the alcohol at all tastes of dark berries with a long dry finish.

SilkTork (5693) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2015
500ml dark bottle, filtered. A sweet and pleasant strong (or "Foreign") stout or dark beer. This has rich flavours - not overdone, just gently playing around in the mouth. Some raspberry, , some almond, some coconut, faint milk chocolate. Modest late bitterness. Very enjoyable.
