Dark brown with large beige head. Sweet aroma with roasted malt, coffee and oak. Very roasted flavor with bitter coffee, oak and hoppy notes. Ends bitter with good dryness. RichardGretton (4786) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2009

Newark Winter Beer Festival, 2009. Black beer with a reddish tinge. The aroma is malty and bitter, and the flavour is rich, roasted and bitter. Overall a nice rich roasted beer.
Bottle.Is this really a stout or a dark bitter-my money is on the latter. Pored with a small head with a pleasant and subtle maltiness. Nice dry fiinnish. Drinkable and pleasant. Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2005
BCA (from Southwick Brewhouse, BBE Apr 06). The first thing I noticed was the delicious northdown hop nose, fresh fruity and inviting with peppery depth leading in perfectly to a more subtle roastiness with some chocolate and liquorice. The body is perhaps slightly less robust than I would prefer but eminently drinkable. fonefan (51092) - VestJylland, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2008

[ as Yates St Lawrence Ale ]. Clear dark brown color with a average, frothy, good lacing, fully lasting, light beige head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, chocolate notes, moderate to heavy hoppy, grapefruit. Flavor is moderate to light light heavy sweet and moderate to heavy bitter with a long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. (070808)
Cask (handpump) at the Great British Beer Festival Day 3, August 2006. Dark brown with a red tinge. Slightly sulphurous aroma. Quite tart with an acidic, vaguely lactic finish. Lots of malty fruit in the flavour. Difficult to place style-wise - as much like a porter, or even an old ale, as a stout. An interesting and quite agreeable beer.

Cask conditioned – handpump – GBBF. A black beer with a bit of a purple hue. The aroma has some sour berry fruit. The taste is fruity and autumnal. Berry flavours in a long finish. Tasty and old aleish Nekronos (4175) - Xalapa, MEXICO - SEP 12, 2008

Cask (named St Lawrence Ale) from the Central Southern England section at GBBF. Naked, dark-brown body. Roasted malt to the nose. Flavoured with dark fruity chocolate and a bite of bitter malt towards the ending. Fairly good palate (08.08.2008).
