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.

Pours a black body with beige foamy head. Aromas of dark malt and coffee with some smokiness, faint vanilla. Taste of roasted malt with some bitter coffee added with some graininess on the palate. Sweet bitterness at last.

MarkoNm (1108) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - APR 13, 2015
Pours a deep black color, topped with a rather small and non-lasting tan colored head. Roasted malts in the nose, some notes of chocolate as well as some coffee. Taste has some initial chocolate sweetness, mildly roasted and bitter coffee later on. Creamy and some coffee in the aftertaste. A really decent one. Strong taste, but drinkable.

poech73 (243) - BELGIUM - APR 7, 2015
Dry Stout assez classique dans le genre mais qui se distingue par son côté acidulé en arrière bouche. Tous les arômes arrivent à l’attaque sur des notes de malts grillé, de cacao, de chocolat, le tout assez acqueux et dense avec des arômes fortement malté qui s’estompent assez vite au profit d’une saveur crémeuse en fin de bouche, grâce au froment torréfié. Une finale cendrée, légèrement acidulé avec des arômes légers de fruits rouge termine cet arrière goût . Fraîche et rafraîchissante.

Nice black appearance, with foamy head that disappears rather quickly with a taste of coffee. Feels smooth, but more carbonated than Guinness. Tastes heavily of roasted coffee
