Leighton (21477) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2013
Bottle shared at CBC Islington - London. Thanks to Andy. A mild gusher, this one! Pours dark brown with a moderate, creamy beige cap. Burnt toast on the nose, some earth, burnt leaves. Light sweet flavor with astringent bitterness, earth, burnt plastic, carpet. Light bodied with high carbonation; way overcarbonated. Bitter finish with dry bitter baking cocoa, burnt plastic, moss, earth, burnt coffee grounds. Not awesome.

Scopey (14972) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2013
Bottle from Andy. It pours near block with a small beige head. The nose is roasted malt, earth, coffee grinds, sweet chocolate, miso, soy sauce, light smoke and burnt plastic. The taste is roasted malt, toast, coffee grinds, ash, astringency, earth, rubberand burnt plastic with a dry finish. Medium body and high carbonation. Really not loving the burnt plastic and over-carbonation....

7 Super chocolatey aroma.
4 Black, brief loose head.
8- Lovely rich chocolatey taste
4+ Soft and smooth, carbonation low. Finish nice and chocolatey too.
15- Super drinkable stout, full of character, but not compromising drinkability at all. Looking like beer of the day...

oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 20, 2012
[email protected] Beer Festival 2012. Qite much black colour, small brown head. Aroma is mild roasted notes, chocolate, some old coffee as well as mild ashes and liquorice + toffee. Flavour is quite similar in a rather nice balance.

imdownthepub (14745) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2011
Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Black with cream head. Deep roasted malt flavours, bitumen with a black coffee break then overlaid with a hint of sweet plums. Good long dry finish. Very pleasant.

chriso (7569) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2011
Cask (handpump) at Egham Beer Festival on 18 August 2011. Very handsome dark appearance - almost black and all-but opaque. Big roasty malt and chocolate aroma. Lots of chocolate and coffee in the flavour. Some robust tangy / citric hops provide balance too. Full mouthfeel but very drinkable. Excellent introduction to this new brewery.
