330ml Can from Lidl Supermarket (£1.49):
Deep, dark mahogany to black coloured with a centimetre tall head that soon settles as a thin surface lacing that's a little patchy and beige in colour. The nose is semi-sweet with some lactose and milk notes opening things up followed by some touches sugar but not too much; there's a faint bitterness and a subtle nut aroma but it's very light on the nose. The taste is more nutty than the nose with a light bitterness but only a touch of the lactose carries through to the taste and its definitely a little disappointing and plain sadly. There wasn’t too much carbonation showing and it's was medium bodied beer with a smooth feel but it was still a little off at times and not one I enjoyed too much. sadly.

330ml can, naturally carbonated and unfiltered with yeast sediment poured into the glass.
Nearly black with emerald edging. Two finger, tan head reduces quickly to a ring. Aroma is rich toasted coffee & cocoa despite being fresh from the fridge. Leaving to warm before further tasting...
Flavour follows aroma but on the lighter side with just hints of caramel. Light body but decent mouth-coating and very smooth.
This is a straightforward but highly drinkable and enjoyable stout.

Can. Almost black. Extra thick head which dissipates slowly.
A mixed aroma of chocolate, cocoa, caramel and a touch of liquorice.
Taste as per the smell. The salt and caramel is easily detected. Milky.
Nearly full bodied. Soft carbonation.
Very enjoyable.

Pours brown tinged black, small tight tan head

Sweet chocolate, mocha on the nose, touch of yeast

Caramel and hint of salt in taste with more chocolate. Medium body, soft carb, little bitterness

Nicely rounded stout, nothing overdone, everything well done imo

cheers

Pours near black with a medium creamy khaki head that sticks around. Nose is soft, with a little milk coffee and milk chocolate. Not very roasty, but still well rounded. Taste is also well rounded with the same milky chocolate notes. The salt and caramel are only hinted at, but add to the overall flavor profile nicely. Overall, it was quite enjoyable for not going overboard and still being very pleasing.

Bottle pour into tulip

Two bottles back to back; the first was far too cold (currently -4C in my garage) and I was too impatient to let it warm properly. As a result I was (predictably) disappointed. Second bottle much closer to room temperature and this beer has really opened up to show its potential. Almost opaque dark brown. Subtle roast hazelnut aroma. Rich and mouth filling. Not as sweet as I'd imagined and I'm struggling to find any hint of the advertised "Hebridean sea salt" but this is a very decent stout. Will likely buy again. Cheers!

Bottled and possibly bottle conditioned
Pours a jet black body with big foamy tan head
Smells like a milky coffee, coffee made with instant bur hot milk instead of hot water
Tastes like that too
Pretty freaking amazing

Keg @ The Beer Emporium, Bristol. Pours a deep black. Smell - chocolate, fudge. Taste - sweet, salty not overpowering but very subtle, rich caramel flavour. Lovely stout, very,very drinkable.
