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.

Demens (126) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 20, 2016
0,33l bottle. Thick black colour with slowly shrinking beutiful and fomay surprisingly brown head. Aroma: Coffee, roasted toast, vanilia,almond and other nuts, Very complex. Taste: Very-very smooth texture. Well balanced sweet/sour/bitter taste, than slowly the bitter wins the fight. Warming feel. The coffee taste dominates but has so many notes. Medium/full bodied with soft carbonation. Long and intense bitter finish. This is an amazing beer one of the best of it’s style.

Saeglopur (1597) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAY 14, 2016
355 ml bottle, pkgd 01/27/16, from Saveur Bičre. 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.
