Had this cask-conditioned beer on draught in a Glasgow pub. It was absolutely amazing. It must be the freshest beer I've ever had. Dark, creamy, fresh roasted coffee, oats and licorice. Sigmund (7826) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 29, 2004
Cask at the Ipswich Beer Festival 2004, gravity dispense. Colour is black / dark ruby. Lovely aroma of dark fruits / prunes, English pipe tobacco, chocolate and coffee. Flavour is roast barley and oats on a surprisingly fruity background. Very drinkable. Fruity aftertaste - not what you expect from a stout, but nice! (And the beer is vegan - as if I cared!)

Cask, gravity, at Wellington Arms Winter Festival of Beer. Very dark brown. Delightful aroma: leathery, dark and old. I just sat there sniffing it for ages. People began talking. Taste is sour and ashy. Mid bitter finish. Very good. TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 9, 2007
Half pint gravity fed at the Battersea Beer Festival, very dark, even syrupy, with a bubbly beige head. A strong rich malty aroma with chocolate. A smooth palate with chocolate malt flavours and a rich finish. A good stout.

Cask Conditioned at The Golden Ball, York. Dark black red beer with malty head. Dark roasted chocolate malts with long dry acidic aftertaste. A nicely rounded stout. DanielBrown (4528) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2004
Hand pulled at the Anchor, Birmingham as part of their organic beer weekend. Jet black, with a great looking sloppy and sticky beige head. Very creamy - like the coffee creams you used to get in Milk Tray. Light feeling, with a burnt oats flavour, which is fairly insistent. Reminds me of Angel Delight...

Cask at fynske øldage 2005. Creamy fair mostly lasting head. Brown colour.

[cask at Café Royal, Edinburgh] Black pour with thick, cream-coloured head. Heavy grain aroma of malt and oats, and chocolate. Flavour of dark chocolate and leather, fruity malt in there. Decent mouthfeel, finishes well, slight touch of ash on the aftertaste  BeerViking (4989) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2012
Gravity at the Kingston beer festival, black-brown with a fluffy beige head and aromas of roast malt, coffee, dark fruit and chocolate. Rich yet lightly tart and dry. Sweet smoky finish.
