Can. Pours a very dark brown color with a moderate creamy off-white head on there. Nose is lightly filled with roasting, and has some slight grain elements as well as a bit of earthiness. Taste is slightly bitter, roasty, and extremely smooth.

czlowiekwiadro (179) - POLAND - MAY 23, 2014
przyjemny, palony zapach, z nutami toffi i czekolady. kolor czarny, ale pod światło przejrzysty. genialna piana (azot). w smaku półpełny, lekko kwaśny, średnia goryczka (ziołowa i palona). wyraźne nuty gorzkiej czekolady, kawy i popiołu. aksamitne.

Bottle. Pours black with beige medium head. Sweet aroma with toffee/caramel notes. Taste is also too sweet for me with a lack of roastiness.

I was expecting something much better. I enjoy British Stouts but this one swings and misses. Too crispy and bitter for me. Not a smooth stout at all. Looks are deceiving, but in the end this one is a dud.

On tunkkainen, on tunkkainen. Mtgn tahdissa aivan sopiva pysäyttäjä. Ei helmeile, mutta mukava on.

warhawk91 (291) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - APR 3, 2014
16.9 oz bottle. Pour is dark brown/black with an average sized khaki head. Coffee, dark chocolate and smoke in the nose. Taste is full with milk chocolate in the front with the coffee dark chocolate bitterness in the back. A bit if both linger in between sips. Mouthfeel is silky smooth. Really good one.

Leafs93 (1640) - Dunmore, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Pours black with a medium creamy beige head. Aroma is dark chocolate, roast, earthy and coffee. Taste is bittersweet with some initial acidic tartness. Medium bodied, creamy texture, soft carbonation and overall a very effective stout.

stefannilssons (1446) - SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2014
Det här var inte alls dumt, smaken var komplex och lite spretig med toner av choklad, kaffe, sötma och bär. Kroppen var okej men balansen satt inte helt på plats.
