500 ml bottle. Pours a translucent dark brown color with a decent Rocky tan head. Malty nose has notes of roasted grain, caramel, dark fruit and oats. Bittersweet roasted malt flavor upfront. Notes of chocolate, raisins and burnt caramel. Nutty and dark fruit notes in mid taste. Cloying herbal hop finish. This is a nice version of a sweet stout. Complex and full bodied with a licorice aftertaste.

Fin mørk stout. En rigtig nyde øl - men nyd kun en, den første smager klart bedst.God humlesmag.

Definitely not what i want in a stout. An unpleasant funk in the taste but when more so in the nose. Aroma reminded me of dirty gym socks. Body want think our creamy like i prefer in my stouts. Not something I want to experience again.

StueyD (1353) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2015
A dark brown to black coloured beer with a frothy but weak tan coloured head. A light roasted malt aroma, roasted nuts, coffee bean, black bread and a hint of dark chocolate. Dry mouthfeel. A bittersweet taste, burnt malt flavours, coffee, dark caramel, roasted nuts and dark chocolate, there is an element of sour hop in the background. The finish is bittersweet and has all the elements from the taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shared with David Pole from clear pint bottle into snifters. It poured a near-opaque dark brown colour with thin but persistent light brown foam. Toasty, no harsh roasty notes. Somewhat reminiscent of a Belgian Dubbel: toffee, burnt sugar, and rich caramel sweetness, rum, some dark fruit notes like tart cherries, ripe raspberries, raisins. Medium body and carbonation, warming but otherwise well-concealed alcohol. Smoother and sweeter than a traditional stout, blending some caramelly Scotch ale traits as predicted.

Veery malty, seems nearly a Malzbier. Way too sweet and malty for me. At least the alcohol is quite well integrated. I prefer dry stouts. This one is definetely not for me.

Sweet and roasted flavours. Chocolate and caramel flavours are rich, but it doesn’t feel heavy. I don’t get much from the hops.
