3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Black with small beige head. Fat oily body. Roasted cereals with pronounced coffee aromas. Round sweet dry palate. Strong coffee brew prefer more bitterness to sweetness like Beer Geek Brunch.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour is not black, more of a deep brown with a red glinse in the edges, small brown head. Aroma is full of coffee, chocolate, vanilla, hops, perhaps a hint of toasted wood and dates. Taste very smooth with coffee, chocolate and roasted notes balancing well together with some yeasty sweetness and caramel maltiness. A bit of woody dryness and a bitter coffee finish. Fairly viscous at 8,5% but very drinkable. Subtle and well rounded. Can only improve with age, would like to try this two years from now.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a pitch black color with a small mocha colored head. Aroma is filled with coffee and the bitterness from the hops and the coffee creates an almost soy sauce note, I also get molasses, dark fruit and roasted malt. Flavor is again very coffee like, with roasted malt, dark chocolate, hint of vanilla, dark fruit and molasses. The body is medium to full with a nice creamy and smooth mouthfeel. Overall a pretty nice Sweet Stout, certainly better than Vlakvark from the brewery.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Saboreada el 19/04/11 en una copa Oversized. Negro puro y cuerpo opaco. Espuma beige con burbujas pequeñas. Capa gruesa y corona persistente, anillos de encaje. Aromas de maltas tostadas, chocolate, granos verdes de café y lúpulos. Sabor a frutos secos y notas de chocolate. Paladar de amargor dulce y café. El sabor a café persiste en el retrogusto. Cuerpo denso para una cerveza no excesivamente fuerte. Un poco pesada y excesivo sabor a café pero puede estar bien para tiempo desapacible. Enjoyed on 04/19/11 in an Oversized glass. Pure black opaque body. Beige foam with small bubbles. Thick layer & lasting crown, lacing rings too. Toasted malts, chocolate, fresh coffee grains & hop aromas. Dry nut & chocolate note tasting. Sweet bitterness & coffee palate.Coffee flavor last on the aftertaste. Full body for a not extremely high ABV beer. A little fat & excessive coffee hints but could be ok in cold weather.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rating #625, bottle from Fish N’ Beer
Brown-black beer with completely dense, small, beige head.
Aroma of blackcurrant, wood, liquorice, lots of chocolate, spices and candy drops. Flavor has a bit touch of metallicness but that is immediately erased by chocolate, liquorice, berries as raspberries and blackcurrant and then some wood. Soft and creamy palate. Really enjoyable stout, and despite the fruityness is quite unorthodox is really suits this beer perfectly!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
340ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a medium beige head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. Sweet milk chocolate and whipped cream notes mix with mild coffee in the aroma. Mild herbal hops up front sit over a base of creamy milk chocolate. The chocolate persists into the mid-palate, with the hops being replaced by mild, bittersweet coffee. Irish coffee notes come through in the finish. The flavours in this stout are fairly simplistic, yet pleasant enough, making for a quite enjoyable sweet stout.
