I like my stouts to have a bit of bitterness to them, and this is one of the drawbacks of this beer. The hops are present but almost completely overwhelmed by the chocolate and coffee character of this offering. Still, really good. I made some jambalaya with this beer once, might’ve been the best jambo I’ve ever made...

Bottle from BrewDog website. A black beer with red fruit and rich chocolate flavours followed by vanilla, toffee and coffee on the finish.

I actually liked this stout, for a guy not liking very many stouts. It was very well balanced and very sweet compared to most. I actually had two pours from draft

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 4, 2009
26/08/2009. bottle from Beerstore, shared with TheGrandmaster. Mashing in warm ups... delicious black brute of a bear. Roasty, clean and amply hopped. Slender and surprisingly tender (though I imagine a few bottles of this would sting you in the morning, if not the pocket). Travelled well.

daknole (8558) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 14, 2009
Tap. Black pour, big creamy light colored head. Aroma is malty andhas some notes of espresso, molasses and chocolate. Flavor is creamy as all hell and has some nice roasted malt flavors finishing with a bit of coffee and chocolate. Well done.

dutch23mp (254) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - JUL 29, 2010
Pours with a massive head. Hints of chocolate and coffee quite a nice brew Dark roasted Malts seem to dominate the hops, rich and lays well on the palate.

Fritz123 (809) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Draft from the brewery. American pint glass. Black opaque pour with tan thick head. Good lacing. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and vanilla. Taste was well balanced with coffee, light chocolate, vanilla and bitter finish. Smooth and not too heavy like many stouts. Very good.

omhper (18972) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 22, 2005
Draught at the brewpub. Near black. Very roasty with lots of coffee and dark chocolate. Dry with medium body. The finish has lingering licorice and bitterness. A lovely, dry stout.

Beershine (5196) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 24, 2009
Black with thick tan nitro head. Rich cocoa aroma with some chicory. Silky creamy mouthfeel. Rich chocolatey body with coffee too. Simple, straightforward, smooth and good.

jjgmd (1229) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2013
On tap at Big Bear Brewery, Coral Springs, pours a dark black color with a silky mocha head, poured in a lager glass, not a snifter? Nose is chocolate, malt and subtle espresso. Taste is toasty with nice chocolate and little if any carbonation. Finishes on chocolate notes, dry and short finish as well. Smooth and velvety. Quaff Score 7 / 10
