zacgillbanks (2302) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. An inky black beer that pours without a head. It has very rich dark chocolate and liquorice flavours, spicy red fruity notes and a roasted and fruity finish.

GraveAtSea (139) - Lublin, POLAND - MAR 10, 2014
Black color with perfect brown head, lacing glass. Lovely aroma. Dark chocolate, black coffee, grain coffee, roasted malts. Taste is complex. Dark chocolate, black coffee, roasted malts, some dried fruits, vanilla, licorice, a bit smoky, wood, leather. Warming bitter/sweet finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Texture is oily, velvet. Great beer, it’s taste like gentle Imperial Stout. Very drinkable.

DanielBrown (3819) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured flat which lowered my expectations. I needn’t have worried. This was delicious - crisp roastiness, with a smooth bodied warming capacity. Went down einen treat. I trust Buxton.

mgajdaczewa (509) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 15, 2014
W armacie sporo kawy, kakao, jest też bardzo fajna świeżość, coś jak cappuccino, niesamowicie przyjemny! W smaku jest podobnie, niezwykle pełne, aksamitne, dominuje kawa, choć z przyjemnymi czekoladowymi akcentami. Mimo pełni świetnie pijalne. Świetne, choć nieskomplikowane piwo.

StoutHead (639) - DENMARK - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle @ home. Pours absolutely pitch black with a dark brown head. Looks fantastic. Aroma of hard roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Taste is like the aroma but also has notes of vanilla, molasses and wood. The overall taste is sweet and the long aftertaste is burned and dry. Very oily mouthfeel and low carbonation. VERY smooth.
