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.

Ascelja (90) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 29, 2014
Bottle 0,5l. Dark brown to black body with thick brown head. Aroma of dark malt, yeast, caramel, roasted coffee. Taste the same as nose, but with intensive hop bitterness. Dry, roasted malt, coffee. Aftertaste bitter with tones of sweet malt and grains. Body is medium, creamy; medium carbonation.
I was curious – it was my first stout – and I wasn´t disappointed, nice one.

Kingmaker (3) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2014 does not count
Flasche aus dem lokalen Supermarkt. Wow, dieses Bier sieht wirklich toll aus im Glas. Eine schöne, langanhaltende, leicht braune Blume bedeckt ein klares, tiefschwarzes Bier. Da freut mach sich schon auf den Antrunk. Auch der Gerucht ist vielversprechend. Hinter Schokolade und frisch gerösteter Kaffe versteckt sich ein Hint von Rosinen und Pflaumen - auch die leichte Hopfung ist szu erkennen. Der Geschmack bleibt dann leider ein wenig hinter der Erwartung zurück. Eine leider nur leichte Süße mit etwas zu starkem Bitter und moderatem Säuerlichen. Trotzdem ein gewisser Scharm. Alles in allem ein tolles Stout, was im Geschmack etwas hinter der Erwartung bleibt.

eduardovl (987) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2014 500ml bottle served in a pint. A: Pours a deep brown almost black color forming a big thin beige head. Very good retention and many lacings left S: Very grainy. Roasted malts mainly, with notes of coffee and dark chocolate. A bit lactic T: Follows the nose, roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate. Upfront is slightly sweet and the end is made of a nice soft roasted bitterness. Great balanced M: Medium but very smooth body. Medium to low carbonation. Roasted malts and mild bitter aftertaste O: Excellent drinkability. An authentic Irish Stout. Perfect session Ale [ BA Review @ 12/1/2012 ]

Very nice dark colour. Everything is moderate in this beer, nothing stands out. It doesn’t mean that there’s something about it i don’t like. It’s a good stout.

Bottle @ De Tolly joogipood, Tartu, Estonia. Pours with thick brown head that reduces quickly. Aroma of dark (burnt) chocolate and bread, some caramellysh sweetness. Taste disappointed me- weak coffee,chocolate, bitterness, creamy. Aftertaste weak as well.
