GBBF, Trade Day, 2008 Gravity cask. A decent sweet stout. Doesn’t finish clean or tasty. Some alcohol warmth. OK.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2008
Cask in the sir john moore. Aroma is roasty and chocolate malts, hints of over stewed cooffee and grassy hop, but thankfully the chocolate helps it. Taste is similar nice and drinkable chocolaty stuff, but could do without the roasty bitterness.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2006
[email protected] 06. Down here as a porter, but you could have called it a stout. Nice full flavour, roasty, chocolatey, some charcoal qualities. Nice length of flavour. Some nice bitterness.

BckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 29, 2007
Can: Pours a dark mahogany color with a thin light tan head and some lacing. The nose is sharp and roasty, not astringent, but a little sweet cherry and vanilla along with the coffee notes. The mouthfeel is fairly thick, but it doesnt have much expanse in the flavor. Some roast and dry chocolate. Good porter, but a little light in the body and umami department.

mkel07 (5427) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 31, 2012
330ml bottle. Black as a moonless night with a big thick light brown head. Roasted malt flavour with a hint of chocolate and vanilla. Lighter in the mouth than expected but very good.

TimE (5374) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 6, 2004
Stylistically challenged, pitch black and overhopped Porter had no head, but the nose gave off a deceptively huge citrusy aroma and the malts were barely present. The mouth was smooth with citrusy fruit, nuts and a hint of chocolate prancing around. The ending was smooth, but lacked real depth. An interesting beer that just gets a slightly lower mark because of it is not really within a style guideline.

Cybercat (5342) - Georgia, USA - JAN 3, 2011
It pours a luscious opaque sable brown with a thick, fairly persistent, fluffy, fine-bubbled pale tan head that leaves a good bit of lacing. Aroma is smoky with an overtone of quality roast coffee and hints of molasses and chocolate. Flavor has tones of semi-sweet chocolate, fine coffee and molasses with hints of wood smoke and licorice. There is also a bit of a metallic tang, possibly from being in a can. Texture is smooth, oily, a little thick, with just a bit of a fizz.
