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.

Very nice.. complex, balanced, mild, malty, dry, chocolatey, smooth.. really pleasant and would make it my tipple if I could get it in my local on tap.. could do with being a tiny bit sweeter, but that is a matter of personal taste

Dark brown in color with a medium tan head that holds for a few minutes. On the aroma, coffee is very predominant with a supporting background of dark bitter chocolate, a touch of caramel and bits of orange zest. I find it to be medium in body with a moderately long finish and an explosion of espresso. Very dry on the finish. It’s enjoyable enough but definitely not a standout.

500ml bottle. Dark black colour with a medium sized beige head, not too long lasting but does leave a little lacing. Aroma mainly roasted coffee/chocolate malt. The taste is exactly the same. Dry bitterness, bit of a smoky aftertaste. Not as smooth as a Guinness. Not bad though.

D’ordinaire je ne suis pas fan de stout (en fait c’est la première que je goûte avec la Guinness...) mais je dois avouer que celle-ci m’a agréablement surpris. Un fort goût de grains torréfiés qui évoque beaucoup le caramel et le café, mais qui personnellement me rappelle carrément le côté fumé du bacon ou de la sauce barbecue. Très sympa donc.

Butelka 0,5 l. Aromat kawy, czekolady, słodu palonego. Barwa czarna. Piana beżowa, dość obfita, pęcherzyki drobne i średnie. Szybko opada do kożuszka, ładnie zdobi szkło. Smak lekko/umiarkowanie słodki i lekko gorzki, wyczuwalne nuty czekoladowe, kawy z mlekiem, jest także lekka kwaskowość na finiszu, który jest dość wytrawny.
