500ml bottle. Chocolate foam head. Deep dark color, almost black. Mild aroma overall. Roasted malts, chocolate. Palate: round, oilish, good. Flavor: Sweet roasted malts, chocolate tones. All around good stout. Lacks character to be really really good.

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

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 (1607) - 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 (1309) - 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.

I like it. Not used to Scottish stouts. So seemed a little strong at first, but went down well.

radzik5555 (190) - Gdynia, POLAND - MAR 18, 2014
Butelka 0.5L. Czarne, piana jasnobeżowa, obfita, głównie dorbnopęcherzykowa, średniotrwała. W aromacie: mleczna czekolada, palony słód ale jakby lekko wędzony i kawa. Ogólnie delikatny, słodki, przyjemny, lekko chlebowy również. W smaku kawowe, metaliczne (jony żelaza - pozytywny test skórny) czekoladowe, lekki alkohol, chlebowe. Nie jest bardzo mocno palone i ma nuty chlebowe przez co przypomina porter. Goryczka średnia+ zwłaszcza chmielowa. Dobre piwo przypominające porter. Gdyby nie wyczuwalna metaliczność byłoby bardzo dobre. No i jak na 7%ABV alkohol zdecydowanie za bardzo wyczuwalny.
