FatTony (175) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Pint bottle- poured out an inky black with a strong wheat head. Aroma was full malt with light chocolate undertones. Taste was excellent, coffee, chocolate and malt. Suffers from a palate that was pretty thin for a stout, even if very smooth. Nice finish, with an alcohol kick. Overall, very good to excellent.

From a can. Pours black as night and makes a creamy tan head. Smells of chocolate and malts. Tastes of complex hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gwizdek1990 (28) - POLAND - AUG 7, 2014
Barwa ciemno brunatna, pod światło pojawiają się lekkie refleksy. Piana beżowa, szybko opada. W aromacie kawa, palony słód, gorzka czekolada i ciemny chleb. W smaku palone nawet popiołowe. Lekka czekolada i pewne zaskoczenie. W tle daje się wyczuć smak bardzo podobny do magii :) Bardzo ciekawe połączenie. Goryczka średnia, ziołowa. Jak na mój gust to za mało kwasowe. Lekkie wysycenie, wyczuwalny minimalny alkohol.

Good pouring beer. Nice rich black color with creamy head. Medium texture with moderate carbonation. Toasted malty aroma. Caramel notes come through. Overall, good drinking beer.

bartholos (14) - GERMANY - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle from a local store. The Scottish Stout smells malty with coffee and roast aroma. It pours very dark brown with a minimal and fast vanishing head. The taste is sligtly sweet with a strong roasty flavor of coffee and finishes with a hoppy bitterness.

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Had this in a bottle. Not a big fan of the cans with a wigget inside. A rich amber brew with ruby high lights a decent size head with good carbonation. Smells of butterscotch malt, low hop bouquet that’s earthy smelling. Sweeter tasting malts with a very subtle hint of grains and biscuit maybe even a tad nutty. Has a dry finish. Soft tasting and smooth some cloying that coats the tongue a little. Very drinkable, good for a long session. Fantastic fall colored beer with a good foam head through out the session with lacing all the to the bottom.

Derbeth (305) - Kraków, POLAND - JUL 3, 2014
Bottle. Black colour, small beige head with poor lacing. Nose is faint, with surprisingly large amount of caramel. Mouth is much better: also some caramel, but with strong roasted malt and a bit ash. Light bitterness, but also a bit of sweetness, which I don’t like. Medium body. Quite ok, but there are better stouts.

Kamil_ (351) - POLAND - JUL 1, 2014
Clear, dark brown colour. Minimal but long lasting, beige head. Aroma of malt, coffee with milk and little chocolate. Light bitterness. Medium sweetness. Taste is chocolate, roasted malt and coffee. Soft to medium carbonation. Good, drinkable stout.

Moravius (442) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 28, 2014
Flasche von Getränke Töpper, Berlin-Moabit. - Tiefschwarz, feinporiger hellbrauner Schaum. - In der Nase schwere, süße Gewürze und Mokka. - Im Antrunk schweres, dichtes Röstmalz mit Mokka, reichlich Karamelsüße, obergäriger Fruchtigkeit (Trauben), einer Spur Vanille und würzig-erdiger Herbe, zart säuerlich abgeschmeckt. Mild rezent, dennoch fast etwas zu rezent für ein so schweres Bier. Öliges Mundgefühl. Im Abgang erdig-holzige Herbe und eine Spur von Teer. Kräftig röstmalzbitterer Nachtrunk. Hopfen kommt etwas zu kurz. - Sehr wuchtiges, dichtes aber nicht allzu komplexes Gebräu aus schwerem Röstmalz und dichter Süße, etwa wie ein stark gesüßter kalter Mokka (aber natürlich besser). Ein Genuß.

adster (203) - HUNGARY - JUN 27, 2014
Illata keveset árul el magáról, annál nagyobb várakozással tekintünk a kóstolás felé. A már megszokott, pörkölt malátás jelleg természetesen alapjait adja a főzetnek, azonban a jellegzetes, robusztus ízvilág ez esetben nem annyira erőteljes, és kissé nagyobb teret enged olyan jellemvonásoknak is, mint a halvány füstösség és egy enyhén krémes, tejes zamat nyújtotta karakter. Egy könnyedén fogyasztható, mégis telt ízekkel rendelkező főzet.
