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.

suurjuust (2661) - ESTONIA - APR 23, 2016
Bottle shared by Mart. Brown beer, tan head. Nose is roast, dry notes and coffee. Nicely mellow. Flavor is, again, mellow, coffee, caramel. Finishes with smooth roasty bitterness, lingering roasty acidity. Very flavorful and smooth, not a 12 percent sledgehammer in your face, but still full of flavor. Very nice.

hackobock (3116) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 20, 2016
April 20, 2016. Bottle, bottled January 27, 2016.
Black with a large creamy tan head, Aroma is roasted malt, salty and sweet licorice, coffee, toffee, notes of dark chocolate, hints of vanilla and ash. Taste is light sweet, soft medium roasted bitterness. Finish is lasting dry roasted bitterness with cocoa, some ash notes with a very light chalky note, some salty soy and licorice notes, light sweetness of toffee and licorice. Light to medium bodied, soft small bubble carbonation.
Solid stout, slightly too thin finish with just a bit too much dry bitterness, I would some more balancing malty sweetness.

humlelala (1272) - DENMARK - APR 15, 2016
(35 cl bottle from Mikkeller Bottleshop; Pkd on 27/01/16) Poured at fridge temperature into a Maisel & Friends footed tulip reveals a pitch black body with a two finger toffee head. Good retention and beautiful lace. Aroma is roasted malt with notes of toffee and coffee. Very smooth and pleasant. Oily texture, medium body, soft carbonation and a roasted, lingering finish. Flavour is well balanced with the roasted notes taking a dominant role and them being able to play the part without being too ascerbic or too bland. Drinkable, tasty, well-composed and well-balanced but in my view somewhat par for the course in this day and age - akin to a Samuel Smith Imperial Stout.

mfhennig (275) - McHenry County, Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2016
Pours black, beige head. Heavily roasted malt aroma. Flavor of chocolate and coffee. Really terrific low abv stout. Right up there with some of the imperials, but sessionable. Thanks Lorene!
