Bottle at home, courtesy of dad (cheers dad) Sunday 9th March 2014 Looks wise this is brilliant, black with a tan head, looks lovely. Roasty initially it is a tasty stout but a little thin, however it is smooth and a little silky, very enjoyable. A7 A5 T7 P4 Ov14 3.7

Dark black thick beer. Smells of wet roasted chocolate smells. Creamy coffee bitter taste. Smooth leaves light creamy coffee behind.

Very nice stout; has lots of body and flavour to it. Got this from Morrisons Redcar. Would have again

Bottle from Morrisons, Byker. This is a jet-black beer that pours with a bright brown head. It has liquorice and coffee flavours with chocolate and vanilla on the creamy roasted finish.

Bargain at £1per bottle from Morrison’s. Looks like Guinness. Smells a bit like Guinness. Probably tastes slightly better than Guinness. Very chocolate(y), coffee(ish) and malty. Lovely!

scotty (1208) - SCOTLAND - FEB 25, 2014
Really dark/black head disappears quickly. Roast malts are well to the fore on the nose and palate, has a good long finish. A well made, tasty stout, thoroughly enjoyed this!

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle, Morrisons, New Brighton. Poured nigh on black with a fair sized tan head. Aroma was roasted malts, molasses and choc. Dryish. Drinkable but a bit on the thin side and lacking any real va va voom.

Bottle taste september 2011, best before date on bottle :07/2011 Big nice tan head, coffee taste and aroma, some roastiness still present. Hope to taste again with a fresher bottle.

tommann (3758) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2014
355ml bottle. Pours black with a small head. Aroma is dry and roasty beef. Taste has roast to start and some beef in the finish. A bit watery.
