Pitch black colour, not much head, just a slight brown ring on the borders. Aroma is spicy, roasted malts and slightly coffeeish. Flavour is loads of spices, caramel, chocolate and coffee. Also some slight roasted malts. Really pleasant one, long spicy and roasted aftertaste.
Cask/gravity at Peterborough beer festival 2008. A big liquorice nose, with burnt sugar and pepper on the tongue - the burnt and sweet tastes somehow balancing each other very well. Then there’s a bitter and burnt finish with that touch of pepper coming through again. Lovely!

Tk2 deep black huge pepper malt front nose ... wonderfull soft gentle stout ... light roast ... nice pepperyness... bitter linger... even better with a shot of 3F DARKLORD added as it just adds a little more sweetness and a little body
Cask conditioned handpump Wellington Birmingham. A black beer with an off-white head and lacing. The aroma is lovely: smoky roastiness and obvious black pepper. Same in the mouth although the pepper is less strong and there are chocolate notes now too. Really nice and totally works.

Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. Very delicious smooth Stout. Thin head. I think I can detect the pepper, but within or without it, this is a delicious beer, which would be excellent with some meat.

[cask at 2011 Battersea Beer Festival] The find of the festival for me - dark portery roast taste with the lovely peppery finish. Spikes the back of the throat on the aftertaste and leaves it tingling. I’ve had Dieu du Ciel’s Route des Epices, and this one is almost as good. Dark black on appearance with traditional porter aromas of malt and a touch of the pepper on the nose too - but this one is all about the taste. Really very nice indeed  merseybrew (101) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2011

Cask at Battersea Beer Festival, 10th Feb 2011. Very deep brown, near black. Palate rather flat. Deep roasted malt note on nose. In the mouth, licorice hints at the front of the mouth and then loads of black pepper heat at the back of the throat. Really nice. fonefan (49601) - VestJylland, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2007
