Bottle at Delday’s house. Pours with a large head, which is slightly off white colour, actually I guess it is quite beige. A strong tasting brew. Nice.

berkshirejohn (5882) - 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.

Pours a deep black with a slight redness to it. Large frothy head that lasts well. Aroma is roasted malts with some caramel and hints of coffee. Flavour has the malts with some chocolate notes.

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

Sigmund (6447) - 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.

mabuzzer (539) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - JAN 23, 2016
500ml bottle. Impenetrable black with a lively off white head that fizzed away. Roasted malt and coffee aroma. Taste is similar with a hint of liquorice. Bit thin, perhaps, and taste/aroma could both be stronger, but still nice

bartzluke (570) - Oklahoma, USA - DEC 26, 2015
.25l pour from refrigerated bottle into shaker pint. Nose is light, nutty, malty. Body is thin. Taste is malty without being too strong. Nutty, a little bready, some toffee. Easy drinking stout.

Thick and creamy tasting. Looks like liquid black gold. Tastes like a really decent beer but looks and tastes like something really really special :) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
