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.

Completely black. Funky aroma, almost like tuna. Tangy. Watery! Slightly roasted with a hint of salmiac which is awesome.

Bierdimpfe (179) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 6, 2016
Opaque black color. Thick creamy and sparkly brown 2 finger head lasting around 6 minutes. Strong legs and no visible activity. Aromas and flavors of nuts, toffee, cocoa and coffee with herbal spices. Strong earthy smell with a roasted bitter taste. Creamy heavy body with prickly carbonation. Strong and long bitter finish ending with a thick smoky mouth coat and highly dry. Overall : The craft and flavors are good but it’s slightly slate missing some freshness. Too dry and bitter for my taste, preferring sweeter stouts.

Marrone molto scuro con schiuma sottile beige. Aroma un po? piatto di malto. Al palato appare il malto tostato, qualche nota di cioccolato e torrefazione. Leggera e secca nel finale. Carbonazione media. Stout di buon livello.

Aromat kawa,słody i alkohol, czuć też śliwki-bardzo ładnie ,barwa czarna z czerwonawą pianą. W smaku mocno wodniste, mocno wysycone, bardzo pijalne. Posmak kawy, ciemnego chleba. Na finiszu ujawnia się goryczka. Pije się dobrze ale szału nie ma

On draft at Deep Ellum. Pours black with a tan head. Similar in style to a Guinness except more dry and less sweet. Tasted pretty good on draft though I suspect that the bottled version would not be comparable.

Very average beer. The only good side is the coffee aromas/flavours. But it doesn’t make for a stout.... Poor beer..

Pours deep dark with medium white head. Nose is roasty. Aromas are roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, hints of citrus (orange). Low/medium carbonation, medium body. Long bitter and roasty finish, evoking coffee. Great stout!
