On tap, poured into a sampler glass. The aroma is a smooth, brewed coffee and bakery dough blend with a light smoke quality. It pours a deep, dark, opaque black with a light tan, dense, near solid head that has great retention and great lace. The taste is a medium / medium high bitter and medium light sweet. It's texture is watery with a light fizz. The medium body is toasty with flavors of coffee, caramel, nuts, a light dark chocolate note, and burnt bread underneath. It finishes nutty with dark chocolate notes and a dry, astringent quality. The aftertaste has a bakers chocolate character with light tones of nuts and caramel.

Pint at Far Rockaway, Shoreditch, London (£5):
Smooth & easy to drink, it definitely reminded me of Guinness more than most dry stouts do; it's almost a craft version of it & a good alternative to it as well.

Very deep black color, a bit hazy. Made a rich and consistent head with a good retention.
Smoky aroma with hints of coffee.
Similar taste, toasted malts and mocha flavor. It has a bitter and dry aftertaste.
Nevertheless, it has a light body with light carbonation and small bubbles.
Interesting that the 50 IBUs did not show up as one would expect, and its body could be heavier, on the other hand it gained good drinkability.
