Pours with good head, which stays. Lovely roasted smell and taste. Thick in the mouth as you would expect. Lovely.

love me a good british stout. Not as thick as you’d want maybe but flavorful. I noticed myself drinking this a lot slower than I’d usually drink.
Bottle at The Miller’s Arms in Canterbury

DruncanVeasey (8326) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2017
May 2016. (HTF did this one slip under the beerdar?) Oily pitch trimmed with ruby under a pocked tan neck. The foam collapses painting the pot with messy lace. Aroma of bramble, ozone and iron filings. Thick cask nick with a glossy dark cocoa viscosity singed happily at the edges. Rust and oysters. Mocha, bramble and burnt almonds. Laudable clout and heft. Easy to slug although not without a streak of heat. Punchy, full and well roasted. Stock up at £1:25 a punt.

homeini (337) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 21, 2017
Uzupełnienie z notatek. Bardzo przyjemny stout, dosyć grzeczny, niezbyt agresywny, przez to lekki w odbiorze i bardzo pijalny.

Botella. Black colour, light brownish head. Pleasanta roma of roasted malt and chocolate with dark fruit. Flavour has roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruit, bit smoke to it, soft, bit thin but really a fine brew.
