Dark brown with a ruby tinge. Can't see through it its so dark. Topped with a huge whopping 5 fingers of foamy thick beige head.

Chocolate, berries, cocoa powder. Rich and chocolaty.

Chocolaty and very much like cocoa, but not bitter or overly sweet. A hint of bitterness on the end.

Moderate body, but it feels thick and rich. Foamy carbonation. Clean finish.

Very smooth, and rich in taste for 5% ABV. Found and drank in Bangkok, July 27th, 2015.

Looks perfect for a stout, totally black, couldn't even see my kitchen light through the glass. The head though wasn't so good so I can't say it was totally perfect.

As for smell and taste it is unfortunately a little generic, though certainly not bad. It would be hard to separate the flavour from other stouts on the market, though it is certainly up at the good end with no off flavours or bizarre metallic overtone. It is smooth in the mouth, though a little thinner than stronger stouts.

Overall it is a good stout. Seems like a nice entry level for people moving on from commercial stouts to the higher quality real ale and craft ale brands.

500ml bottle, bottle-conditioned. ap: almost black, long-lasting thick head. sm: roasted barley. ta: blackcurrant. mo: fairly light due to high carbonation. Ov: worthy stout, with a tang that is not sweet. Full of flavour. One of the longest-available bottle-conditioned ales in the UK.

Ruby-tinged black with pitted, steady, creamy cappuccino head.
Berry sweetness, brown sugar and a bit of ashy roast on the nose.
Tannins, prune, acidic roast, a flash of sweetness the a big EKG hop hit.
IBU + roasty astringent linger.
Medium, very dry, slight chew.

Old school. Dark but not cloying, well-attenuated, no coffee or chocolate notes - just lean black malts. A winner.

A 500ml bottle with a BB of Feb 2013. Picked up from a supermarket a while back and stored in my garage. A previous winner of CAMRA's Champion bottled beer.

Poured into a tulip pint glass. Bottle conditioned. A very dark reddish-brown that appears pitch black in the glass. Yields a large head of creamy light-brown foam with good retention; this slowly subsides to a surface layer. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, burnt grain, dried fruit, molasses, singed cake, earthy yeast and mild stewed hops. Rich and delicious - lovely.

Tastes of intense roasted malt with a strident bitter finish. Notes of burnt grain, coffee, chocolate, molasses, dried fruit, earthy yeast and mild stewed hops. Dry and faintly smoky, followed by a distinctly malty bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and mildly spicy, with great carbonation and good body. Not too thick, not too thin. Somewhat astringent, with an aftertaste of bitter roasted malt, coffee and stewed hops.

Fantastic - an excellent stout with a big flavour. Decidedly malt-driven, with plenty of roasty notes and bitterness. Looks the part, and the body is well-judged. This is exactly what I imagine when I think of the perfect English stout. A sterling effort from the Titanic brewery, and well worth sampling if you come across it.

Hand-pulled pint in 'The Cock Hotel', Wellington: Dark, jet black, without any hints of any other colour. The tan head on top does hang around but it wasn't huge at the start.

The smells were of dark chocolate and coffee. Both overiding anything else that might have been in the aromas.

The taste is burnt/toasted malts, again with dark chocolate and coffee to the fore.

Like the bottled version, it is creamy and fullbodied, the flavours stay in the mouth. Really enjoyed it.
