Bottle from B & M, Worcester purchased Saturday 4th January consumed at home Thursday 9th January 2014 Pours dark, dark brown with a tan head. Quite but not massively rich with bitter dark chocolate tussling with lots of roasty, toasty flavours. Very good for not being too sweet, in fact it was a little dry, also good for the abv, it really is very easy drinking for a 6% beer. Not bad.

Live review: hope this is going to be better than the 4% ABV Cask version I had back in 2011.
500ml Bottle: BBD end of Jan 14, I am about to pour it into an Abbot Ale glass tankard at home 18th Dec 2013.
Really dark body, a deep reddy brown: on top a full foam blanket of tanned mini-bubbles.
Coffee and dark chocolate in the aroma, same in the taste. The roasted malts giving a richer and more flavoursome feel than the 4% Cask one. This is a whole lot better with the dark chocolate taste turning a little bitter towards the finish and the coffee esters becoming stronger.

Bottle from B&M Stockton. Deep mahogany colour with good tan head. Rich flavour with plenty of coffee, but this has quie a sharp almost citrus feel to iut that doesn’t work in a stout. It’s certainly drinkable, but it isn’t great. Martin243 (1222) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2013
500 ml bottle from B&M served cool in a 1/2 pint tasting glass. Black body, beige head. Muted coffee aroma, and a hint of the farmyard. Some liquorice, bitter chocolate and cough sweet flavour, but ultimately too watery, thin and dull for a 6% stout.
