33cl bottle from Maksimarket, Tartu. Very dark brown with a modest, but lasting beige head. Aroma of roasted malt with dark chocolate, dark fruits, hints of coffee and caramel. Medium sweet with medium flavour intensity and a modest bitterness. Rather tasty stout.

hman43 (1109) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - AUG 6, 2016
Pours black with a dark brown head. It has aromas of coffee, dark chocolate, and roast. There are flavors of roast, coffee, and a low dark chocolate element. The finish is dry with moderate bitterness that is long lasting. It has a medium body with some creaminess and a very slight astringent element. Overall, this is a fairly malt forward stout.

Scrumpy369 (439) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 29, 2016
Bottle in Ireland. Black colour, with a small light brown head that disappears fast. Nose is light roasted malts, definite coffee. Taste is low roasted malty bitterness. Finish of chocolate powder and coffee. Low carbonation, but wouldn’t wish for more, as it makes the mouth feel very smooth. Nice.

overtheline (114) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - JUN 16, 2016
330ml bottle from beer52. Pours pours black with a off white head that fades to cap but stays. Lovely nose, coffee, roast nuts, roast malt, wholemeal toast. Taste is coffee, roast malts and a touch of vanilla. Really silky mouthfeel and low carbonation with a good, balancing bitter bite at the end. Lovely stout.

Gangstergafje (666) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JUN 8, 2016
The beer looks like a true Irish stout. The color of the beer is a lovely black jn the naked eye. With a strong light behind the beer, a nice ruby red glow is unveiled. The beer seems rather clears. On top of the beer, a minimal layer of almond conjured foam is formed. The bulk of the foam collapses, to leave a minimal creamy drape. The smell is lovely. It’s really a stout smell. It has mainly the sweet aromas of a stout. I smell sweet chocolate, mocha, coffee and some vanilla. I also smell some cherries and alcohol. All in all, a nice smell. I mis the roasted barley a little. This is present, but I wished it was a lot stronger. The smell had a little more of this. I taste done lovely bitter roast flavors. I love those flavors. I also taste some caramel, chocolate, mocha, vanilla and some licorice. There is also a little touch of cherry. The roast flavor had something salty. The beer has a nice bouquet of flavors and aromas. It’s very nice. The palate is nice. The beer has done nice tingly bubbles. This is lovely in combination with the stouty flavors and aromas. A lovely brew. I’ve been waiting to drink this for a kin get time. I’m glad I’ve waited till the right moment.

poech73 (365) - Braine, BELGIUM - JUN 5, 2016
Irish Stout doux et aromatique légèrement astringent qui offre des senteurs classiques au nez: café moulu, malts très torréfiés caramélisés aigrelets. Dès l’attaque je reçois une bouche pleine: les saveurs d’abord de café caramélisé, puis de chocolat biscuité en arrière bouche, enrobent bien les papilles avec beaucoup de longueur. Sensation poudreuse et argileuse sur la langue. Le blé grillé donne au surplus une petite aigreur bienvenue dans toute cette douceur qui se termine avec une gentille âcreté. Souple et moelleuse.

metalspice (630) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2016
helt svart med fin beige topp. Lukter kaffe, toffe tørt gress og et hint av aske. Ferske kaffebønner, sjokolade i smaken sammen med et lett metallisk preg. Behagelig, bitter avslutning.
