MarkoNm (1099) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - APR 15, 2015
Pours a pitch black color, topped with a rather small beige colored head. Mild roasty malts in the aroma, some mild notes of chocolate and very pleasant and easily picked up chocolate and vanilla aromas. Taste has some chocolate sweetness up front, followed by mild roastiness with some minimal bitterness from coffee in the end. Very creamy and thick, full body with some minimal alcohol taste in the very end. That’s my kind of stout.

Countbeer (5034) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle (50cl): Thanks GlasgowTAD: Served at 15 degrees Celsius in a Chouffe glass: Medium sized creamy beige head on top of a black beer. Aromas of roast, coffee, chocolate. The flavour is a silky thick rich mix of typical flawless stout tones that makes this a perfect stout but also somewhat of an easy drinker. Damn tasty! Creamy! Smooth! Aftertaste is roast, bitters, coffee, some chocolate, creamy. Delicious! Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel and medium to fuller bodied. Nice! Another no nonesense stout. Good stuff!

curdy (9) - Lodge Park, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2014 does not count
Super strong toffee, demerara sugar aroma with some coffee. Jet Black appearance. Sweet malt taste and warm alcohol feeling. Full bodied and delicious. Maybe a bit aggressive for the newcomer, but if you love your strong stouts and imperial stouts, you will love this offering from BBF.

Bottle from at Cotteridge Wines; dark brown pour with a bubbly tan head, malt and choc aroma, taste has dark fruits along with some roast malts, sweet candied fruit, drinks lighter than the ABV.
