ShivanDragon (2339) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2015
fles zwart met fijne schuimige bruine kraag. aroma is lekker, goede chocolade, stevig, volmoutig, vanille. Smaken komen in eerste instantie een stuk harder binnen dan het aroma, redelijk aan de bittere kant, veel droge koffie, chocolade, wat aan de dunne kant, geroosterde- gebrande mouten, matig zoet, maar zo behoorlijk koffie/moutige tonen, iets té, komt niet meer gebalanceerd binnen. matige body, laag co2, nee deze is niet zo bijzonder

gegwilson (2197) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2015
Bottle in the Buxton Tap House. Deep brown, almost black with a cream head. nice coffee aroma. the taste is bitter with dry coffee and black chocolate in the finish. A little thin in body, but a very good lower ABV stout.

Spot on! Deep brown/black with a tan head... chocolate & coffee on the nose, and burnt, roasted flavours... chocolate, coffee... nice and dry with a balanced bitterness. Perfect dry stout. Delicious.

Vinx (87) - ITALY - MAY 16, 2015
Nothing to add to the commercial description. This beer is absolutely perfect, maybe the best dry stout I’ve ever tasted. A balance between the aromas and a neatness which don’t let you indifferent.

micmillon18 (18) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 12, 2015
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a nonic glass. No "born on date." Aroma - Black licorice, chocolate, dark bread, espresso. Faint smoke - dark fruit emerges as it warms. Very impressed. Appearance - Sticky mocha head. Deep, black color with some mahogany hues around the edges. Taste - Chocolate (initially milk then giving way to the darker persuasion), hints of smoke, finishing with dark roasted coffee. Burnt flavors linger prominently on the pallet. Palate - Supremely creamy, softy carbonated. Light bodied. Bone dry. Overall - Perhaps the best example of the style I’ve ever tried.
