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 doesnít feel heavy. I donít get much from the hops.

Very dark pour with thin tan foam. Very smooth, almost too smooth with only moderate development. Mostly chocolate, some coffee, raisin in finish.

White bottle? aroma- mainly coffe, some chocolate, minimal roasted bread. Beer is black with less than 1 finger almost brown head. Taste like a nice classic stout, mainly coffe. Its nice and smooth. Palate- Iíd say full body, thick, soft carbonation. Overall- well I asked guy in a shop for a good classic stout and I got one. Nice and stylish. 7/10

Pours jet black with a fat tan head. Aroma is chocolate malts. Taste is bitter chocolates and some raisins. It doesnít have that super velvety mouth feel that I like on my stouts, but it is tasty and very drinkable.

Bottle shared at the Kernel tap room, London, thanks to Ben. It pours a dark brown color with a medium tan head. Aroma is lightly roasted, with notes of dark chocolate, dried fruits and espresso. Taste is medium sweet and lightly roasty with notes of wood, ashes, light booze, chocolate. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, tasty

Pours black as a starless night. World Class head volume, outstanding lacing and retention. Light nose of roast and chocolate over a slight mineral note. Heavy light body with just a hint of smooth texture. Above average carbonation level with a bit of effervescence in the middle and finish. The outstanding flavor profile is reasonably intense, a bit complex and very well balanced. It begins with chocolate sweetness which is a blend of bittersweet dark and milk characteristics. The middle has a very subtle bitterness from roast and hops over a distinct classic mineral note (think chocolate soda). The finish is a slow fade of rich sweet chocolate with hints of vanilla. This is an excellent choice to introduce someone to stouts.

500ml bottle. Very dark brown color. Small size, brown head, stays. Sweet, roast, bit metallic notes in aroma. Sweet, mild roast, mild hops in taste. Dry mouthfeel. Dry papery spicy hops in aftertaste. Quite decent.

50 cl in pint. Pours a nice, abundant beige/grey head, dense and bubbly; deep black colour. Smells straightaway very chocolatey, toffee, roasted, slighlty smokey. Taste goes on a folowing level: again very chcolate/cocoa, very nice malty, roasted, hints of vanilla, not too much harsh coffee soy notes which often ruin evreything. The sweetness is outstanding, and the bitter notes just there to balance it. Right medium carbonation, medium bodied, silky texture, great drinkability, you wouldnít tell thatís 7%vol. Tried this 3 times during this year, and itís not a coincidence: itís a great and solid brew. Highly reccomended, even if you donít like stouts
