On draft in some pub in Glasgow, UK. Black appearance, brown head. Nose of roasted malts, some coffee. Bitter flavor, roasted malts again, very dry. Bitter finish. Nice, although not really my favorite style.

Keg at The Angel, is that Holborn? Only the vaguest of aromas. Something roasty and malty. Looks damn good - jet black with a thick light beige head. Sweet with some bitterness out there, not waving but drowning. A sour berry chocolateness but very low key. Light-medium bodied. Pretty watery. Flat. Very low key finish. Inoffensively drinkable, i.e. doesn’t taste of much, wet and cold.

Keg at The Angel, Rotherithe an old boozer my great grandad used to drink. Served way too cold. Pours dark brown with nice looking creamy head. Roasted malts and quite bitter.

3.8
bartlebier (4077) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 3, 2017
Cask halfpint at Nellies, aka SamSmith-owned The White Horse Inn, Beverley, EastYorkshire. - Pours both cocoa-powdery and creamy from its cask. Dry cocoa roast and thin toasted bread, thin filter coffee and chocolate milk in aroma. Great hop dryness and a thin layer of roast over a sessionable traditional dry stout that is as easy to session as to love, especially in this its natural environment.

A great looking pint, pitch black with a crisp white head. I am new to stout and for me this was delicious. I would drink it again in a heartbeat.

3.6
Fullpintofbeer (407) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2017
Tap @King William, Bristol. Medium off-white creamy head, very dark brown colour, good lacing. Aroma: bread, lightly roasted, bit of chocolate and coffee. Lightly acidic with bitter aftertaste. Medium body, soft carbonation. Drinkable, smooth, needs more body, but generally really nice.
