3.78/5  rDev -0.3%

500 ml bottle with a stamped BB date of 6 Jan. 2014.

Clear, very dark red-brown; opaque in the pint glass.

Aroma: fine but faint.

Feel: Medium body; medium+ (slightly too high?) carbonation.

Flavor: mild and light up front; some richness, mainly from dark malts, in the finish and aftertaste. A hint of coffee.

O: do not serve too cold: a richer and more complex flavor unfolds at warmer temps.

3.8/5  rDev +0.3%

Deep black color with some red beams when exposed to light and a thin caramel head with short retention, but leaving some laces.
Light aroma of coffee, dark chocolate and nuts.
Flavor of roasted malts, earthy hops, strong coffee, a bit of licorice, nuts and cocoa, yeast and some muffled citrusy. Dry and bitter aftertaste with a lingering roasted note. Lightly acid and spicy sensation.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation.
Very good stout, dry and relatively unsweetened with nice roasted notes. Assertive, but not boring.

3.94/5  rDev +4%

From the 650 ml. bottle. Sampled on March 8, 2014 and served around 45 degrees.

The pour is mainly dark mahogany brown but it does hovers around jet black, opaque look too. There is a long-lasting cream colored head that leaves a nice does of lacing as it fades and I drink it.

Subtle but in interesting aromas. Dark roasted malts, some black licorice, moderate sweetness, a little smoke, and water minerals.

Light to medium body makes it rather drinkable.

The taste also brings out the dark malts, sweetness, and caramel while the hop bitterness at the finish is a but more muted but definitely there. There is a dry lingering finish. Great pub beer! Bring it on!

3.69/5  rDev -2.6%

Look: Lightly pours with a large, beautiful brown, thick, bubbly head. Slow retention, mostly diminishing, thin layer stays on top. Leaves good amount of lacing. Colour is clear black (with light red hue). Definitely a good looker.

Smell: Mostly milk chocolate malt, also some light sweet roast, biscuit, nut and some yeasty, herbal earthiness. Light and smooth.

Taste: Smooth light/medium chocolate roast, caramel, nutty middle which goes into light spike of roast, maybe hop bitterness that lingers with you in the after taste - enjoyable. Light acidity present, keeps if fresh yet that dusty fillings remains.

Mouthfeel: Light-medium, yet creamy body. Soft carbonation, kinda dry, you want another sip. Maybe a bit more body would do it good.

Overall: Easy chocolaty, roasty sipper. Nice balance - good stuff.

4.21/5  rDev +11.1%

From Leura. BB July 14.

A - black, tan one finger short lived head, some lace.

S - muted, doughy malts, choc.

T - wow! Good and well balanced, so much more appealing than the London Porter. Choc everywhere, balanced, amazing long lingering aftertaste of choc n nut. Hint licorice.

M - nicely carbonated but not overdone, dances on tongue. Light medium weight.

O - a real surprise. Sweeter than I expected, but the balance is just wonderful. And a blast of flavour for a 4.5% beer.
