coffee, nuts, roasty, black, minimal head, medium bitterness, light sweetness, medium body, creamy. Strong nutty coffee aroma. Immediate bitterness upon tasting, but the sweetness lingers. Seems to improve as you drink it. Surprised by this.

Hopverdju (671) - BELGIUM - SEP 20, 2016
Donkerbruin bier met een rode gloed en weinig beige/bruin schuim. Geur: rood fruit, porto. Smaak: zoet, wat rozijnen, licht bitter, iets zeperig. Waterig mondgevoel en toch romig en vettig. Afdronk: lichtjes koffie.

pours into a deep dark black with a small caramel colored head. the first hit of the aroma i found it hard to place at first but i get a subtle hint of some sweet fudge. flavor is smooth and not too overpowered without losing any of the pleasant taste i get a creamy taste of the familiar smell. a very pleasant drink. glad to finally get a proper taste after pouring it for many customers and it has not disappointed.

rikstar (2244) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 30, 2015
0,33l fles meegebracht uit Duitsland. Zwart met een fijne crème kraag. Geur is koffie met rubber. Smaak Is redelijk gebrand teer achtig met toffee en havermout, had iets minder wrang geroosterd gemogen.

Cokemonkey11 (505) - - DEC 19, 2015
Half pint, cask, teviot row house. Pours black with a medium tan head subsiding slowly. Scent is light toasted malt. Taste is medium dense sweet fruits and sugar with a standard medium dense toasted malt body. Nice and thick as expected, tiny bit sticky but manageable. Great. Great.

procraste (472) - FRANCE - DEC 13, 2015
Un stout gourmand mais dans une certaine retenue. On est dans le dessert mais pas dans l’étouffe chrétien ... A noter de jolies notes de fruits confits qui prennent leur ampleur ... Café chocolat comme à l’habitude ... Pas trop épais, bien comme faut ...
