COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Westchesterco (774) - mclean, Virginia, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Poured from a bottle it is a dark brown with a slight head and the aroma is a a roasted Malty coffee smell. The taste is strong coffee flavor with overtones of licorice that resonated on the palate

Mpuntmuts (121) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 25, 2013
Jet black pour with one finger creamy tan head. Smell of dark malts and coffee and roasts. Almost an espresso touch with bitter chocolate. Good coffee and bitters and again the dark chocolate and roasties. Too bad the density is such a downer. Too thin and watery. But not a bad stout at all. Kicks a lot of the other stouts asses.

GarnotingPete (740) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 23, 2013
Bière noire couverte d’un beau col onctueux laissant une épaisse voilure au verre. Au nez, du café, de la poussière et un peu d’herbes légèrement mentholées. Elle est peu amère et sans aucune sucre. Elle est crémeuse, de corps leger, peu effervecente et se termine sur des arômes honnêtes, sans plus.

radio_nowhere (697) - Maryland, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Draft at Madrones in Frederick, MD. Served in a English pint glass, black with creamy brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and kind of a brown sugar note. Taste adds notes of liquorice, some dark chocolate and some graininess. Medium body, low carbonation (nitro), creamy, thick with slight bitter dry finish. Decent.

Majek (270) - Ząbki, POLAND - NOV 10, 2013
Very dark, almost black with medium and stable head. Moderate aroma of roasted malts and coffee. Taste is rich, lots of roasted notes, chocolate and pinch of licorice. On the finish some earthy bitterness. Medium carbonation. Very decent dry stout.

A little bit thin in the palate but overall a very enjoyable stout, with notes of espresso and chocolate and a pleasant dry bitter finish.
