Bottle, @Half Pint Gentlemans place. 24/3/2016. Leather. Blackcurrants. Prune. Chocolate. A little espresso. A bit thin though. It could do with a bit of time in a barrel.

First tried this on draught couple of years back. Saw it in pub and decided to try. Wow! so glad I did, one of the best examples of a stout you can get. Wonderful, complex flavours going on from start to finish, full flavoured and very, very satisfying. Like the best dark chocolate, take slowly and enjoy. Dont rush it and take care not to overindulge the palate. This is best judged against mass market stuff, most of which is one dimensional and ordinary by comparison. An excellent winter beer.

RichardGretton (4720) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2016
Bottle. Pitch black beer with a good head. The aroma is well roasted, and the flavour has a bitterness, and roasted coffeeness with some yeasty element. Overall a reasonable stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jasonbenali (167) - Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2015
500ml bottle. Decent and persistent yellowy head for a stout. Aromas of chocolate, coffee and raisin, but not particularly powerful. Some booziness and a medium finish. Flavour is as you might expect if nothing more, some coffee, chocolate, touch of ash, raison. Nice enough, but nothing more.

Idiosynkrasie (6981) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 23, 2015
500ml bottle. Jet black colour with late awakening, small to average, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, tan head. Sweet-ish and roasty, dark malty aroma, notes of malt lozenge, some malt spiciness, hints of cola, a touch of treacle and dark fruit, plum or the like. Taste is roasty dark malty with bitter hoppy overtones, minimally chalky, hints of mineral bitterness, very cautious hints of plum; finally quite monotonous and one-dimensional, minimally watery.

Bottle 500ml (AbM)
Dark brown/black color, big creamy beige head. Ashy, toasted aroma. Dark chocolate, a bit vegetably. Medium-bodied. quite robust for this ABV. Harsh, ashy, roasted flavor. Aftertaste has bitterness. Feels a bit unbalanced although drinkable.
