1/7/18: 12 ounce draft pour into snifter ($7.50 at The Garage). Pitch black pour, off white thin lacing. Chocolate and toffee aroma. Chocolate the predominate taste, toffee and bread as well. Nice balanced beer, with a firm mouth feel and presence. East drinking very good beer Benters (144) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2017
Pours a very dark brown, clear colour with a reddish hue when you hold it up to the light. Average carbonation. Aromas are of light coffee, roasted malts and sweet dark chocolate with a delicate fruitiness. Taste is really smooth and silky; really sweet with a nice roastiness at the same time. Really enjoyable stout. elbernays (1731) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 31, 2017
Bottle shared. Pours light black with tan head. Sweet thin bodied chocolate. A bit light.
Onesimus (107) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2017
This stout glugged gloopily into the glass. A deep deep brown with a shimmer of dark crimson bleeding through when held up to the light. A cappuccino coloured head with turgid three fingered creamy textured crown stood its ground for ten minutes only slowly giving way sustained slender covering with great lacing.
On the nose it’s restrained roasted coffee hints of chocolate and dry fruits are there if you press into the aroma.
I take a good healthy gulp and feel the deep velvet, silky smooth beer with its fine soft carbonation salubriously filling my mouth with a great sense of slick satisfaction.
Flavours wise up front its sufficient but not overly bold is the balanced dry fruit and coffee. This leisurely lingers around and then slowly fades in with a very light liquorice bitterness a perfect long ending to a lovely endearing beer endeavour.
I like it. somedayfamous (4) - - DEC 22, 2017 does not count
Beautiful dark beer with a thick, creamy head. This has a pleasant taste and is not too overpowering.

35,5cl bottle from Kaubamaja, Tallinn. Pours dark mahogany coloured with a lasting beige head. Malty aroma with roasty notes, dark fruits and hints of chocolate and mild licorice. Medium sweet, smooth and very well balanced. Certainly a pleasant one. kevinkernow (1) - - NOV 29, 2017 does not count
I have just signed up to this site, purely to deter potential buyers of this gastly stout. There is so much sugar in it, I couldn’t finish a bottle as my teeth were aching. Truly awful and gutted I bought 12 bottles of the stuff. Hopefully it’ll suffice for a steak and ale pie. Cokemonkey11 (1123) - - NOV 27, 2017
Bottle at the white horse, missing best before date. Black like Guinness with a tan foam as ice cream. Scent is medium notes of strong cereal character. Taste is a bit dusty, possibly gone off. My tasting partner says "like Grandma's closet". Possibly a bit off as I detect both some sour notes and some ethanol. Finish is smooth and consistent on the sour. Good, needs retaste at this rating.
