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.

Black pour with a rocky light tan head that quickly recedes to nothing more than a ring around the glass. The aroma is a bit smokey malty with a wee touch of peat, but is light overall. Light body as well. And light flavored. Nothing more here than smokey roasted black malts and a mild kiss of roaast malt sweetness.

On tap at Dan's. The pour is darker brown, maybe light black with garnet hues visible all around the glass. There is a thick, pillowy light tan head that fades quite rapidly with no lace to be found. The aroma is chocolate, with a roast character that's almost forced. There is a strong dry character to it, but I'm not really sure what it's trying to be. The flavor is more of the same. There is a strong dry roast character and light chocolate. Maybe a hint of coffee, but nothing else. The mouth feel is really thin, and quite flat. There is a dry, roasty coffee aftertaste, but that might be the best quality of this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

javiercrasher (164) - Granada, SPAIN - MAR 19, 2014
Negra, con generosa y fina espuma marrón de media retención. Aromas a malta torrefacta y algo de café. De cuerpo ligero y bien gasificada. En boca presencia de torrefacto con final suavemente amargo y seco. Una stout muy normalita.

Belle couleur brune foncée tirant sur le noire. Petite mousse beige en guise de collet. Arôme marquée de café. Belle onctuosité en bouche. Les saveurs de café sont bien présentes.

Bottle. Pours a fuckton of head which disappears faster than your erection upon seeing a Save The Children ad.

Smells roasty initially before the oxidation and stale malts join in. Some hop bitterness up front while generic malts just kinda stand there and look at you awkwardly from the corner. Doesn't even sport the voluptuous mouthfeel which makes this style drinkable.

This beer's sole redeeming quality is that neither smelling not tasting it makes me want to vomit. Honestly, given the choice, I'm going with Keystone Light / Coors Light over this every time.

Barwa: ciemna, nieprzejrzysta, piana beżowa, drobnopęcherzykowa, szybko opadająca, ale ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Aromat: paloność, melanoidyny, czekolada, kawa, lekko chmielowy. smak: kwaskowość z ciemnych słodów, niezbyt pełne, apalość i przypieczone cisto z wytrawna końcówką.
