Poured this one into an English pint glass. It’s appearance is very dark with a slight ruby red hugh. The aroma is rosted oats and carmal. The tast is caramel and rosted oats also. On the palate it is slightly oily with a little carbonation across the tongue. Overall I like this one it may be a little on the sweet side but not overly sweet.

Bottles from Beers of Europe. Fruity toffee malt aroma. Almost black colour, not much head. Mild fruity chocolate & toffee flavour. Slightly thin texture but smooth & a bit creamy. A decent stout.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 4, 2011
Deep black with just a hint of a russet colour in the dimple of the glass. Off-white head that disappears quickly. Definite roasty, chocolate aromas which make themselves apparent upon tasting. It starts out chocolate and sweet and then cools and becomes a little bit bitter. The finish returns to that chocolaty sweetness. A pleasant enough beer to go back for seconds, so definite tick in the box for me.

MotherBrother (865) - Aalborg, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2011
Pour black, with an off-white head. Really good looking. The aoma is heavy on the chokolate and coffee side, so it is a bit off balance. The palate is watery, and there is a lot of fizzy co2.

AshtonMcCobb (4413) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 30, 2011
50cl bottle. Pours opaque black with a cappuccino head - looks great! The nose is intense coffee. The taste has coffee and bitter chocolate. The palate is medium to big in structure and texture and there is a slightly bitter rather than creamy finish. Overall, a great stout.
