This stout has a robust flavour with a ful bodied and smooth mouth feel. The roast flavours lead to a dry espresso like finish. A generous addition of fuggles hops lead to a tart bitterness which mingles with the roast espresso flavours on the tongue.

Opaque dark brown. Head dissipates abruptly. Mild, but pleasant dark chocolate and roast aroma. Relatively thin bodied. Roast and dark chocolate taste as expected. Dry, mildly hoppy finish. Pretty mediocre.

kafarion (161) - POLAND - MAR 10, 2015
Aromat kawowy, całkiem mocne żelazo przykrywa resztę. Kolor ciemnobrunatny, nieprzejrzysty, piana niska, drobna, słabo zdobi szkło. Smak kawowy, kawa z mlekiem, może lekka czekolada, goryczka niska. Piwo treściwe, oleiste, pełne, dobrze wysycone, pozostawia lekko kawowy posmak który się całkiem długo utrzymuje. Ogólnie aromat odrzuca, smak nic nie urywa, konsystencja jest fajna, czyli średnio słabe piwo.

JamesGates (3) - IRELAND - MAR 7, 2015 does not count
Very drinkable, black as you’d expect with a smooth dry finish. Nothing special in terms of aroma, coffee and dark chocolate with medium body and average carbonation. Taste is is lightly sweet, lightly bitter and pleasantly satisfying.
