Bottle from Home Bargains. This was being sold around the £1 mark. Great value as it's a really good stout. Sweet then a bitter finish.

Cask at the Crosse Keys, London EC3. Plus black with a small off white head, leaving good lacing. Aroma of chocolate malt and mocha. Sweetness is almost that of a sweet stout, with a light bitterness. Velvet smooth texture, body is rather light, soft carbonation. Light roasting to sweet finish. A good beer.

500 ml bottle. Pours dark brown with big, long lasting tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Light body with soft carbonation with dry finish. Bit too light for my taste.

Tap. Earthy roasted malt aroma. Classic black with cram top. Served from the craft corner so in my view over-chilled. This may explain why the flavours were more muted. Bready rather than biscuity with the barley outweighing the hops on the first taste. Some Smokey undertones and one can detect where the vanilla stout hails from. While more to my taste than most Guinness served this may keep me in the mild porter camp. Kavu (4890) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 19, 2015
0,5l bottle from Citymarket, Jumbo. Pours very dark brown with a medium off-white head. Aroma is roasted malts and coffee. Flavor is dry roasted malts, coffee and hops. Pretty robust for the ABV. Nice. jookos (6875) - FINLAND - SEP 12, 2015
Bottle. Black, tan head. Roasty nose. Roasted malts, coffee, dry chocolate. Lightish body, but quite flavourful. Roasty, slight ashy. Pretty ok for the abv. redders1974 (1521) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2015
Nice well rounded stout some chalk and alcohol drink on cask at the healet Rochdale would go well on a session. Towey1989 (2938) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2016 Keg at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A deep brown to black colour with a creamy beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, some vanilla and a hint of espresso. Taste of roasted malts, chocolate, some coffee and vanilla cream. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and a smooth texture. A smooth, dry, chocolatey finish with a hint of vanilla and roastiness. A nice stout, roasted flavour with light sweetness......................................... Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A deep brown to black colour with a medium beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, slight coffee and subtle vanilla. Taste of roasted malts, chocolate, a hint of caramel and subtle coffee. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, roasted bitterness in the finish. Had to rate this again as I believe they may be a difference between cask and nitro. This is a lot more simpler in taste, a sweetish stout with a dry finish. Extremely sessionable though.
