Bottle from Rheged.
Appearance - opaque black with an olive sheen and a lovely fawn head.
Nose - light fudge and biscuit. Dark chocolate sticks it's head in eventually. Maybe molasses.
Taste - liquorice, molasses and burnt bread. Savoury liquorice finish.
Palate - light to medium bodied. Dry crunchy middle section. Dry burnt finish.
Overall - very good. Is this dry enough to be called a dry stout. Many normal stouts are drier than this. redders1974 (1550) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2015

Bottle @Il Santo Bevitore (Rome). Deep brown with a big light beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, light mocha, hops, grass, seaweed, wow! Flavour is moderate sweet with a good bitter end, messy notes of chocolate and coffee, bitter and dry end with a touch of smoke and sea salt. Light carbonation. So easy to drink but rich and pleasant! A jewel!

Bottle from Booth’s in Ripon. A black body with a frothy tan head. Roast malt flavour as you would expect. Fairly mild tasting - a little initial sweetness with chocolate and a hint of spice before a dry bitter finish with a little coffee. Not bad. sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2014

Bottled, 500ml from Booth’s in Kendal, Cumbria. Black with big tan head. This is more like it, lots of coffee husk and bitter chocolate notes, heavily roasted malts, drying but not over dry. There is a light nuttiness, almost an almond flavour giving some contrast. Deep and warming, a comfort blanket of a beer. Very good.
