I love this beer, it is all I want deep black colour is matched by it’s taste and smell. The head vanishes quick but that’s of little consequence. Bought a number of these from B&M hope they get some more in ourla (2) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2017 does not count
Absolutely cracking beer. Really pleasant aroma, wonderful dark appearance in the glass with just the right amount of carbonation. Best of all a fantastic taste and finish. The brewers cracked it with this one. vapootha21 (2) - worcester, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2008 does not count

A good full bodied, creamy stout. A touch sweet and boozy. A delicious offering of dried fruit, chocolate and molasses. Badger85 (5) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2013 does not count

Bottle, B&M. Another surprise find in B&M, lovely dark colour, thin head but lasts well. Good fresh malty nose, not as complex as I’d expected. Lovely, well balanced palate, smooth and malty but with lots going on in the background, the finish is long lasting. Lovely brew! BeerViking (4796) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2015
Bottle from B&M. Deep dark brown with a lacing head. Cocoa, vanilla and a touch of old wine on the nose. Rich and chocolatey, slightly sweet and plummy, and with a burnt-bitter edge. An excellent modern twist on a classic 19th century English Stout MattyDTD (2) - Ormskirk, Lancashire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2016 does not count
Pour - Pours a very dark brown almost black appearence, 1 finger head which decipates withing a minute or so.
Aroma - Rather boozy for a 6.6% beer compared to others but that smell is carried by dark roasted malts accompanied by dark coffee notes with vanilla on the back end.
Taste - Creamy, Frui and nut chocolate, vanilla pod finished with the malts that stick to the roof of your mouth.
Overall - Probably the best stout ive tried. Has everything a stout lover wants. Big bold flavours and smells. A heavy stout that sticks to your mouth and dances on your tongue. If only it had the guinness type head it would be perfect. 10/10
