imdownthepub (15130) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2013
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.

ManVsBeer (10927) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2013
Strong stout and very dry in the palate. has a full aroma, slightly overbearing with a medium roasted malt taste. Black with a very small head.

DruncanVeasey (8260) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2013
Live rate. Bottle from Booth’s, Kendal. Reflective tar pour with a luxuriant tan head going nowhere. Full, soft condition; notes of biiter chocolate, iodine, stewed stone fruits and prunes. Fruity, lactic aroma wafting with an assortment of olfactory goodies including vanilla pod, carob, burnt malt loaf, raisiny high cocoa bitter chocolate and dark berries. Not especially dry. Lingers with roasted nut and mocha tones. A fine, full-bodied and satisfying stout I’m throwing down like cocoa...

AshtonMcCobb (6846) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 2, 2017
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.

4.2
Beersiveknown (5301) - NORTHERN IRELAND - SEP 12, 2011
Brown black with thin brown head.Very complex nose chocolate, mocha, vanilla, roast barley and chicory. Initially a lot of roast barley and chocolate malt and a hint of smoke. Fairly smooth bodied, but perhaps a little lacking on texture that a bit of extra malt could pack in. Complex chocolate/coffee interaction with sweet malt and a dry, slightly bitter finish.

3.8
