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.

BeerNinjaUK (54) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2015
Bottle from Beer52. Pours very deep brown colour with every so slight burgundy glow. Velvety beige head which falls away quite quickly. Aroma is gentle - coffee, toast and brandy. Taste is satisfyingly rich with roasted coffee beans. Overall, a very well composed stout that leaves a lingering smokiness.

Aragh (156) - POLAND - NOV 8, 2015
Kolor hebanowy, piana gęsta, szybko opadająca, niezbyt chętnie oblepiająca szkło. W zapachu kawa i murowana piwnica. W smaku intensywna palona kawa, w tle bardzo gorzka czekolada i kawowa kwaśność, goryczka krótka, palona. Niezłe, ale pozbawione głębi. Po ogrzaniu pojawiła się też nieprzyjemna masłowatość. Nasycenie dość wysokie.
