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

bartlebier (3306) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUL 5, 2016
500ml new entry sampled at BierHandlung. Smooth hazelnut cream pour, beige cap. Aroma of inviting malt caramel spread, some coffee. Smooth thinner yet still textured mouthfeel for the abv, helping alll sweet caramels and roast (coffee, milk chocolate) into pleasant some power. Hints of lactose and hazelnut.

minihame2 (446) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUN 16, 2016
Black body, small, bubbly tan head. Very mild aroma, I only get a bit of malts and a faint coffee aroma in the background. Pretty good flavour, roasty malts, dark chocolate, with slightly bitter hoppiness. Silky smooth moutfeel, low but tingly carbonation but not very rich bodied. Decent stout with lots of roasted flavours which I like.

Fules (676) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 4, 2016
Nagy, tartós hab, koromfekete szín. Kifejezetten fekete csokis illat, bár kicsit erőtlen. Édeskés, fekete csokis ízvilág, enyhe pörkölt malátás alapon, de a háttérben a komló is elővillan egy pillanatra. Utóíze édeskés, fekete csokis. Nagyon finom, de egyetlen százalékkal kevesebb alkohol kellene bele.

Aus der Flasche getrunken. Schwarz wie die Nacht. Mächtiger Malzkörper mit einer leichten Alkoholnote und Nachtrunk nach etwas Lakritze.

hauxe (341) - Butzbach, GERMANY - FEB 26, 2016
Pours black from the bottle with a thin creamy head. Aroma is lots of roasted malts and coffee. Taste is bitter coffee, chocolate and, more faintly, amaretto. The hops make themselves felt in the long bitter finish. Palate is creamy, the body is lighter than usual for the style. Pleasant.
