Bottle at home ... no idea where i got this ... but it cost me £2:30 ... deep black ... thin tan head ... sweet meaty big malt nose ... this alone puts it above its average so far ... bit overy fizzy ... nice meaty roast malt ... but thin ... oddly this remonds me a little of the Kaggen in its flavour ... but its thinness lets it down badly ...theres also a tiny tinge of sourness... This is probably the beer that holds the most promice of what it could have been. It probably needs taken up a point or two and some more boddy added and this could go from 3.4 ->4.4 with one little step

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2013 Bottle from Utobeer shared with MagicDave. Liquorice stout with a bit of cardboard. Tar on aroma, really bad finish. Like a dead rodent. Poor. 1.8 Re-rate I bought this by mistake at Terre de Boissons, Calais. It’s a lot better than the first time. Still a little liquorice, but better flavours. Must have been a bad bottle last time. I even quite like it. Good choc and coffee and pleasant in mouth, some very mild sour acidity on finish. OK.

Bottle. It’s a dark brown beer topped by a dense, finger-thick beige head. Some licorice in the aroma after a while, with roasted malts, oatmeal and chocolate showing up first and doing most of the work. It’s full-bodied, lightly sweet, yet feeling dry on the palate. A decent bitterness blends in with the roasted malts, licorice and coffee in the mouth, lasting for a good while. Sure a fine stout, easy drinkable too. 151215
