Smoky and dry. Probably my favourite bottle-conditioned stout from the UK. A bitter, sour (but pleasant) taste. Widely available from supermarkets and off-licences in the UK..

On cask at the Stockbridge Tap. Appearance - opaque black with a lovely fawn head. Nose - roast and dark chocolate. Taste - more of the same. A BT of biscuit spice in there too. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy yet crunchy texture and a long dry crunchy finish. Overall - Id say this was into dry stout territory.

minutemat (4636) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2016
500ml bottle shared in the corporate hospitality area @ GBBF 16, as one of the disappointingly few exclusive bottled beers there. Pours black, thin ring of -off-white head. Taste is rather thin, a touch dry with a valiant hint of roast on the finish. Next.

prawlie (1506) - ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2016
On draught at the Nags Head in Reading a year or so ago. Black with a light bubbly brown head. Nice and roasted stout, with a dark malt body and a chocolate, albeit not entirely clean finish. A reasonable stout.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Grumbo (1670) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2016
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.

IOzh (144) - Kyiv, UKRAINE - NOV 27, 2015
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.
