Bottle. Black with a light brown good lacing head. Sweet chocolate, roasted, pineapple, mango, light alcohol, light roasted bitterness in the finish. Filling mouthfeel, dry, ok.

Bomber aged a year in the cellar brought by ck1 from Vintage Estates, thanks bro. Pours a very dark brown with little head. Aroma has cocoa and some fruit and soy. Taste is of sweet caramel, with chocolate and hints of sweet pitted fruit (peach? mango?). A sweetly bitter finish. A bit cocoa-y. A strange blend with the cocoa and the fruit. Shrug? A decent brew - ck1 also a 14.

200th RATING! Bottle, supplied by Drsilverworm -- many thanks! Pours a deeply fixed mahogany cordovan brown with a delightfully creamy head. Smells instantaneously of wet and dry hops, dark chocolates, rose pedals (itís a floral note that doesnít seem to characterize anything else), balsamic vinegar; cherries, sawdust and liquorice on its finish. Finally a Foreign Stout thatís easily drinkable, has as much depth in its tastes as in its aroma and put quite frankly, done right. Iíve discovered hops, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, raisins, peppercorn, coffee dregs, liquorice root, walnuts and an aloe vera-like herbaceousness while happily sipping this magnum opus beer.

A quaint roasted malt and burnt office-coffee nose rises from a picture perfect pitch black body. A tannish head laces well down the glass and a palate of coffee, mild chocolate, and noticeable hops packs a punch. Personally I thought the flavor could have been a bit more credible, as the beer does so many things well but lacks in that "a-ha" moment when tasting. Easily one of if not the best FXS that Iíve had, the Zatek 2011-A is an exception to this oft-overlooked style. Just donít overlook this brew.

Daytonbeer (582) - Ohio, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Pours black with off white head. Moderate lacing. Aroma is light with chocolate and coffee. Taste is better than the aroma. Coffee and lots of dark friuts. Warm going down. Enjoyable Stout.

CloakedDagger (408) - - SEP 13, 2013
Bottle 65 cl. Pours an opaque black with a small, creamy beige head leaving some lacework. A little licorice and roast in the aroma. Medium body, roast and cocoa powder with some warming alcohol. Not overly sophisticated yet still very nice. 130913

Wow, thanks Santa, this was WAY more than I had expected. Usual suspects, nice smooth mouthfeel. Nutty, dark chocolate. The backend lingers with that burnt dark chocolate taste forever, really a well done brew.
