hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2007
Very dark brown. Intense roasted malt aroma. Sweet malt taste with a hint of sourness, cocoa, and an ashy bitter finish. A thoroughly sound stout.

chimpscampee (566) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 8, 2007
Classic understated English stout. Not on par with Young, Sam Smith stouts but very good and the most beautiful brew bottle I have found to data. The first bottle I put cleaned and put in the window. Circa 1870 (?) flask they say.

Pours dark red with a decent off-white head. Aroma of chocolate and soy. Tastes like dark cacao bars. Bitter hop finish. Interesting.

andyhite (308) - Murfreesboro, Tennessee, USA - JAN 3, 2007
thick malty caramel aroma dominates my nose, also a touch of peanut butter and dark chocolate. i kinda cheated on this one and tasted it before taking a good look at it and sniffing it out. the taste is a refreshing sweet stout with a minute amt of dryness on the finish. unfortunately, i didnt see much head on this pour, and i was beginning to think it was out of date. theres a little more carb than say, newcastle, but thats about it. the flavor is still there though. its odd. not my fav, but definitely good for a stout.

Fin (10042) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2006
Bottle, Majestic, Bicester, 23-12-06 in a St Peters mixed pack of four different dark beers. Poured pretty much black, some bitter chocolate aromas, taste was a little more restrained chocolate becoming more milk chocolatey but there were some coffee hints in a decent stout.

BT (123) - Westchester, Illinois, USA - DEC 16, 2006
Poured cold into a pint glass very dark with a big creamy, nut colored head that disappeared quickly. Wonderfully full aroma of roasted malts, coffee, cocoa, bitter, and sour. First sip of cold beer was sour and disturbing, then it quickly turned into roasted coffee, cocoa, and malts again. Waited for it to warm up, but the only change was that the sourness lingered more.

Ibrew2or3 (8392) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 13, 2006
16.9 oz bottle. Poured black with thin brown head. The aroma is mostly cream soda with lesser amounts of roasted and burnt malts. The flavor starts off semi sweet with coffee, roasted malts, a sense of cream soda and the introduction to the burnt and chocolate malts that follow. The rest of the taste into the after-bit is a rather nice mixture of burnt and chocolate malts.
