This stout ale pours a deep brown-tinted black, with a thick creamy latte head. Aromas of burnt roast coffee, malty molasses, prunes, and a hint of smoke.

Black pour under a thin light beige cap. Nice earthy chocolaty nose with a little bit if hazelnut. The flavor is initially sweet with a bit of cocoa and some light nutty esters, and finishes with a dry earthy bitterness thatís still kinda quiet and lets the sweet-ish cocoa tones through.

KeefOz (1136) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAY 3, 2014
Poured an opaque black with a slightly brown edge tint. Light tan bubbly head about 5mm thick retained poorly but laced OK. Aroma faintly of roast coffee, molasses, malt. Taste bitter roasted malt and slight coffee becoming less bitter as it warmed. Lighter body than I was expecting for a stout. Smooth with a bitter finish.

Aroma: toasted malts, coffee, chocolate. Appearance: black, big creamy beige head, Taste: light bitter. Palate: bitters pushed back by toasted flavours, chocolate, espresso, getting dry in the long finish. Overall: great stout, fantastic aroma and palate. Pint at the Buxton Tap House, Buxton.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2014
Bottle from the Red Squirrel Chesham Brewery Shop. Poured black, with a dense tan head. Aroma of molasses, grassy hops and treacle. Full, thick mouth feel. Initial flavours of black syrup, burnt sugar and dark malt. Finish was building, bitter hops, coffee and dry, roasted malt. Really full flavours for the comparatively low alcohol content.

Idiosynkrasie (4911) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 14, 2014
330ml bottle. Ruby red glowing darkest brown colour with small, creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, beige to tan head. Dark malty aroma has notes of mocha, cappuccino, a cautious smoky touch of bacon. Taste is dark malty with minimally bitter and sour-ish coffee notes, dry hints of dark chocolate; lasting, mildly bitter finish.

CanIHave4Beers (3568) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAR 13, 2014
In bottle, labeled as Kinder Stout.
Pours a very nice dark brown (almost black) with a decent sized khaki head and good lacing on the glass.

The aroma has light coffe and lots of cocoa. Itís roasty & rich very mild yorguty lactic notes. Very inviting.

The flavor is fantastically roasty, with a nice level of grain bitterness that never takes things over the edge. Itís chocolaty in a sort of dark chocolate way. Itís got a light smokiness & is basically dry. The dark fruit is very mild and works nicely with an even more buried tartness for a subtle fruity character.

The palate is never thin at all & this passes as a nicely full bodied stout.

Enjoyable on all accounts, how I long for a 4.1% abv stout of this character brewed in my neck of the woods.

CraftyBeerTour (123) - Barcelon, SPAIN - MAR 2, 2014
From a 33cl bottle. Looks the part. "A deep brown-tinted black, with a thick creamy latte head". Agreed, totally. Aroma dominated by roast coffee, but that burnt edge is little less than "gentle" for me, but it has that lovely light silkiness in the mouth where some of that prune/plum fruit comes into play, providing a little juiciness in the middle. Very enjoyable drink.

Niall73 (2245) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2014
Cask at CBC Clapham. Pours a dark brown/black with an off white head. Slightly meaty, foody aroma. Medium body, mild carbonation. Light teriyaki, a hint of smoke, soy, a little grapefruit, licorice... Nice enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask in CBC Clapham. Opaque very dark brown to black, thin off white to tan head. Nose is very rich with lots of roasted malt, burnt malt, charcoal, cold fresh black coffee. Tate is bitter roasted malt and black coffee, some charcoal, dark chocolate. Roasted flavours really dominating. Body is lighter than many stouts, quite watery, but very good.
