Pours into glass tar black with a lovely brown head that dissipates quickly. Leaves behind brown sticky lacing with small bubbles around the glass. Doesn't have a strong ale... In fact you might have to shove your nose into the glass to smell it. When you do get close enough... Chocolate truffle, vanilla, caramel, and roasted barley. The taste... The taste is amazing. This is a stout. You notice just how smooth this brew is... The chocolate and vanilla notes dance on your tongue with the malt and barely emerging at the end. Just the right carbonation. No bite or sting. There is a nice balance of malt and finishing hops here. Probably, personally, one of the best stouts I've ever had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kacyper (552) - Łęczna, POLAND - AUG 4, 2015
500 ml, butelka. Nie jest to kwientesencja stouta... Aromaty kawowe, czekoladowe, zbożowe. W smaku podobnie cienkie. Niby styl ale jednak to nie to...

majkelr (234) - Lębork, POLAND - AUG 4, 2015
Aromat karmelowy, ciemnych słodów, zbożowy, trawiasty. W smaku karmel, czekolada, lekko palone i lekko kwaśny posmak, ale zbyt wodniste.

jawlo (155) - Katowice, POLAND - JUL 26, 2015
Aromat: przyjemny, paloność, popiołowość oraz gorzka czekolada. Wygląd: barwa czarna, piana średnio obfta. Smak: brak słodyczy, głównie gorzka czekolada i paloność, trochę kwaskowate, średnia goryczka. Odczucie w ustach: mało ciała, bardzo wytrawne, niskie nasycenie. Ogólne wrażenie: smaczne piwo, ale przydałoby się więcej ciała.

Michcio (105) - Gdansk, POLAND - JUL 21, 2015
Barwa ciemnobrunatna, kremowa piana średniej wielkości. Aromat ciemnych, palonych słodów, troszkę karmelu. W smaku półwytrawne, kawa, trochę ciemniejszej czekolady i przypalonego ciasta, goryczka dość spora, faktura całkiem gładka i aksamitna, choć treściwość jest co najwyżej średnia. Niskie wysycenie. Gdyby nie brakowało nieco pełni, byłoby naprawdę świetnie, a tak jest "tylko" solidnie. Choć warto spróbować.

Bottle 500 ml. Powerful aroma: chocolate, caramel, roasted barley and coffee. Taste: rich, warming, sweet caramel and chocolate, wine with roasted barley, bitterness and hoppy dryness in the finish.
