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.

Exceptional for a regular sweet stout. Opaque black with a thin tan head. Aroma of coffee, caramel, roaste dmalt, some vanilla. Palate is very thick and silky. Flavor is sweet, but not cloying. Lots of roast and bitter chocolate. Some caramel malt, coffee, slight hops, and lots of residual (I think lactose) sugars. Finishes nice and clean with a bit of lingering sweetness.

ClubGonzo (5399) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2016
Bottle @ Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Pours a black body with a medium creamy off-white head. Nose is caramel, licorice, leather, grains and hints of chocolate and dark malts. Taste is dark chocolate, coffee, licorice, grains and hints of burnt sugar, brown bread and leather. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Nice enough stout, but considering its high rating I don’t really feel it bringing anything new to the table.

Derek881 (1247) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 31, 2016
Poured from the bottle into a pint glass to drink. The aroma featured roasty caramel and toffee malt, with cereal, earthy, and oat tones. Its taste was a blend of caramel, toffee, some chocolate and oats with a slightly bitter note. The body was rich and somewhat creamy with good life and carbonation. Excellent stout.

Luvystypotables (1611) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JUL 29, 2016
Aroma of smoked malts and molasses, pours a dark brown almost black color with a thin brain head. A very Guiness like taste, dry smokey malt taste with a medium body hints of water and a bitter dry finish. A vastly over rated beer.
