COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a full-bodied stout with plenty of roast flavor as well as hints of molasses and chocolate. Ridiculous amounts of black and caramel malts make this stout smooth, creamy, and utterly opaque.

Saeglopur (1610) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAY 14, 2016
355 ml bottle, pkgd 01/27/16, from Saveur Bière. Thanks to Werckmeister!
Pitch black body, with a small, creamy, coffee-colored head.
Aroma of espresso, liquorice, wood, soy sauce, ash, cocoa, dark chocolate, dark fruits.
Taste follows this, but not fully as rich as the nose.
Full, creamy mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes roasty-bitter, dry, wooden, with liquorice, coffee, soy sauce, ash, some cocoa.

Very nice, although I was expecting a bit more. The nose is really big for the ABV, taste is a bit more one-dimensional, although still enjoyable and very well balanced. Overall not among my favourite Stouts, but a really good one I would drink again.

Vells (1404) - Rīga, Latvija, LATVIA - MAY 7, 2016
Surprisingly full bodied for such a low ABV, very balanced, distinct dark choco character, coffee, rich roast maltiness, caramel, hazelnuts. Moderate sweetness with light bitterness. Very nice

Alphadelic (2099) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Super robust roast coffee nose. Dry, rich chocolate and coffee. Damn dry and with a real bitterness to it. I could drink a lot of it.

zubblwump (36) - Michigan, USA - MAY 6, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2016 Pours black with an impressively thick light-brown head that is in no hurry to go away. Smells rich and roasty. A great start, but unfortunately, the taste is a bit more bitter than I like, and it feels rather thin in the mouth for a stout. Despite the thin mouth feel, it is smooth going down. It did get better as it warmed a little. I’d probably give this brew another shot someday, but I was really hoping for more.

Pours black with high latte brown head Aromas of dark fruits, dark malts, coffee, molasses, chocolate Taste has caramel, black malts, coffee, liqourize, chocolate, dark fruits Very well balanced stout given the abv level. Nice balance between caramel, and dark maltyness.

fantti (895) - FINLAND - MAY 5, 2016
Pullo @ Saveur-Biere. Kaatuu snifteriin sysimustana, noin 1,5 sormen paksuisella melko tiiviillä vaahdolla. Tuoksussa on vahvaa kahvista paahteisuutta, jopa tupakkaa. Myös lakritsia löytyy hyvin reilusti, lievemmin löytyy suklaata ja maamaisuutta. Maussa lakritsi iskee aivan alussa, sitten kahvisuus valtaa alaa ja dominoi loppua kohti. Jotain marjaisuutta ja karheaa puumaisuutta löytyy tumman suklaan lisäksi. Suutuntuma on keskitäyteläinen(+), melko maitoinen, jonkin verran humaloitu ja hieman hyökkäävä. Laadukas ja hyvin tyylinmukainen stout, hyvin kahvinen tapaus. Tasapainoa löytyy ja kahvisuus ei niin kovasti haittaa kuin yleensä.

From a bottle. Beautiful beige head which lasts for a while. The beer is probably too cold when served. Coffee, caramel and some vanilla.
