Sublime indeed. Have been fortunate to drink this exceptional stout on a few occasions and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Easily one of the best stouts I’ve ever tasted. Not for the faint hearted!

Awesome looking bottle @ benzai. Pitch black colour with a small beige coloured head. Smells roasty, chocolate, some liquorice, some tar, slightly red fruits, sweetish. Tastes roasty, toasty, coal, tar, dark chocolate, a hint of liquorice. Lovely taste. Lasts for quite a while. Full body, soft carbo, thick texture.

hohops (818) - Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2014
Bottle. Pours very dark, almost pitch black, with hardly any head. Leaves a few foamy bubbles around the edge. Aroma- creamy chocolate, roasty bitterness, milky coffee, oatiness. Really nice smelling. Taste is lots of coffee and chocolate, big roastiness, creamy, almost smoky, chocolate-covered fruit and nut, lots of espresso in the finish. Very impressive.
