From Labirratorium. In Ikea's pint glass. Playing 12 Labors of Hercules 2. Pleasant soft coffee roastyness in both aroma and taste, with a good smooth feeling. Highly drinkable but I prefer the fuller's one.

Drier than I expected, this is definitely a dry stout all the way. I figured, why have a Guinness when there are lesser known beers to be tried? Similar in taste, but not quite as commonly available. Very big foamy head, some chocolate taste but not overpowered by it. Decent balance, though not my favorite type of stout.

On nitro in London. Creamy tan head. Lace. Color is near black.

Taste has a bitter chocolate flavor to it and has an off flavor that is slightly medicinal that I don't like.
Roasted malts. Fairly smooth and creamy.

Pours an off white creamy head, that lingers on. Great lace. Almost black colour, with some red hints when held to the light. Smell of licorice, dried fruits, prunes or figs, chocolate. A bit thin body and not much carbonation. Taste of chocolate, licorice, dried fruits.

From bottle, pours near black with a small brownish head. Aroma mild chocolate and coffee. Taste Roasted malt, cocoa powder, chocolate and some notes of coffee in the finish.

On cask at Marquess of Anglesey. Pours near black with a dense short head (typical English pour). Nose is lighter than expected. Straining to get some roasty malt and coffee notes. Flavor is a bit watered down, but flavorful enough. A refreshing stout? Enough pleasing creamy roasted malt notes to make this pleasant. Goes down easy, without a lot to contemplate...if that's what you are looking for in a stout. A reasonable choice on cask...expect it would not be good as a keg/bottle option
