Musta olut kohtalaisella, kivasti pitsiä jättävällä beigellä vaahdolla. Tuoksu herkullisen kermainen, maitokahvinen, paahteinen sekä maitosuklainen. Maku jatkaa samalla linjalla ollen pehmeän kermainen, maitokahvinen, paahteinen ja suklainen sekä jälkimaultaan vielä paahteisuus korostuen. Keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma ja todellinen jymy-yllätys prosentteihin nähden! Loisto-ostos!

WaddlingPlatypus (128) - Durham, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2016
500ml bottle. Dark brown pour with a caramel head. Aroma of rich cinder toffee and roasted malt. Pale flavour of cinder toffee and syrupy treacle with cream, bolstered by a strong dark stout flavour.

Sigmund (6745) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2016
500 ml bottle, from Matkroken Stokka. BB date 28. April 2014. ABV is 4.4%. Black colour, moderate but lasting tan head. Sweetish malty and lightly roasty aroma, more malts and caramel than coffee, also notes of chocolate and vanilla. Smooth flavour, delightful lightly roasted quality malts, some sweetness but not too much, notes of chocolate, toast and mild coffee, moderate hops. Definitely a beer I’d buy again.

berkshirejohn (6072) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2016
50cl bottle from Marks & Spencer, Camberley. An opaque peaty brown pour with a large tan head; caramel aroma; quite lively with a smooth creamy texture that coats the mouth, dry with a taste of well roasted barley and some milky oats; then a nutty caramel finish. A solid and satisfying milky stout.

en har en krafig luft, smagen har lidt fylde og en en del lakrids, den skulle være brygget på kildevand.

Bottle@home. Pours black, tan head which went in seconds. Nose is coffee, vegetables, malty, uncooked steak. Taste is slight bitter coffee which turns into a sweetish aftertaste.

500ml bottle from Morrisons, which I picked up for £1 !!!!! Pours jet black as expected with a 2 finger tan head. Nutty sweet treackle malty creamy nose. Taste is really good; chocolate milky roasted nutty malt with a nice bitter finish. One of the nicest tasting stouts I’v had in a while, very thick mouth feel too for a 4.4 abv beer. Impressed will be buying more.
