Fine but quite not distinctive. A roasted coffee flavor with some light chocolate balanced by a few hops.

thellgren (810) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 2, 2016
0.5 can with nitro gadget from K-supermarket Ruoholahti, Helsinki. Looks great with that nitro generated head. Taste is also smooth as in Irish nitro stouts. There is nothing else to say.

Benzai (14074) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2015
Bottle @ Terminus Den Bosch. Fantastic dark brown to black color with a thick dense creamy off-white head that lasts forever. Smell and taste malts, lightly butter, lightly bitter, a bit lactic sort of speak. Soft mouthfeel, soft delicate velvety texture, suitable soft body and carbonation.

caesar (6644) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2015
Tap @ Terminus, small sample. Dark color, beautiful medium lasting creamy head. Aroma of earthy hop, soft roast, bit coffee. Soft bitter in taste, creamy mouthfeel. Just like an oldskool stout should be.

Onslow (1390) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - DEC 18, 2015
Pour from 14.9 oz can. Black brew with tan head. Aroma of roasted malts. Taste is nice blend of roasted grain, hints of coffee and chocolate, ends with a sweet caramel and a little toffee, final flourish of a little burnt grain at the last. Quite sweet and a little weak throughout. Smooth oily palate, very enjoyable to drink.

mateuszk (2024) - Poznań, POLAND - DEC 14, 2015
Can. Black in colour with tanned head. Aroma of black malts, no hops. In taste medium sweet with solid bitter and dry finish. Medium body, soft carbonation. Solid stout.

AaronTDubs (337) - - DEC 2, 2015
Clear dark brown color. Very fine, but low carbonation. No fruity yeast or hop aroma. Had whiffs of chocolate and burned malts. Quite sweet, but with a good balance from the bitter malts. Rich, oily mouthfeel, but still with a lightish body. Chocolately flavor, but doesn’t last long. Not too bad.
