Really liking this one! The aroma is wham in your face; lots of toasted malt character with a coffee element as well. Pours a dark black with a tan pillowy head that fades to lacing that loves clinging to the pint glass. Taste is somewhat sweet with notes of chocolate, coffee, and especially toasted malt. Finishes exceptionally smooth and flavorful but with enough bitter dryness to prepare you for the next sip.

En ganska snäll och relativt söt stout. Hm, inget som verkligen sticker ut. Funkar men inget jag satsar på igen.

500ml bottle. black color, coffee colored head. smells coffee / liqueur, malty, smoky. light to medium body, tastes very malty, smoky, light malt bitterness, light coffee note, some sweetness. good but overall a bit too malty, 500ml of this brew was more than enough for me.

Bottle 500 ml shared with JFK. Pours dark brown with brownish head. Light coffee aroma. Coffee flavor, liquorice, light to medium bodied. OK, but nothing special.

Flaska från systembolaget. Tjock svartbrun kulör med beigefärgat skum. Doft av kaffe, rostad malt och lite lakrits. Smak av mörk choklad och kaffe. Bra bitterhet

Theydon_Bois (9945) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2014
Bottle at the Long Dock, Carrigahalt, 05/12/14. Black with a well appointed tan covering. Nose is toffee fudge, roast malt, grain, nutty, cocoa rub. Taste comprises chocolate, roast malt, vanilla, light coffee whisper, toffee. Medium bodied, prickly carbonation - a little too much for me, semi drying close. Decent enough stout, the carbonation level let this one down a little for me.

33 cl systembolaget. Inte så stoutig som jag hoppats på. Känns ganska kommersiell och smakar inte så mycket.

Flaska från systemet - Något unken arom. Svart som natten med brunt skum. Något maltig i smaken men annars är den inte så stoutig och väldigt söt eftersmak.

Po nalaniu super drobna i gęsta beżowa piana, barwa ciemno brązowa, prawie czarna. W aromacie kawa z mlekiem, wanilia i palone słody - wyraźny i przyjemny aromat. W smaku jest jeszcze lepiej - do tego wszystkiego co w zapachu dołącza czekolada (gorzka jak i mleczna), troszkę ziemistych, popiołowych nut, nadających pełni i aksamitności. Początkowa mleczna słodycz szybko kontrowana jest fajną goryczką chmielowo-paloną. Świetny stout! Dość treściwy, bogaty a jednocześnie pijalny dzięki fajnemu zbalansowaniu jego deserowej i sesyjnej strony. Alkohol niewyczuwalny (poza delikatnym rozgrzewaniem w przełyku chwilkę po połknięciu), goryczka przyjemna, nasycenie średnie. Ma on w sobie coś z ułożonego dobrego RISa.

500 ml bottle from Hayduke. A big tan head has slightly darker notes along the outside. It has very good retention. The beer looks like a stout with a good bit of amber. A rich aroma of vanilla and chocolate. Almost decadent. Lighter roasted notes. The flavor begins earthy with coffee, chocolate, and tobacco. Fruit is gentle and there is just a bit of spice. The feel is rich. The finish is long lasting with chocolate and tobacco. Quite tasty, actually.

Labeled Christmas Velvet. Black with a tan head. Roasted coffee, hints of chocolate to the nose. Mothfeel is on the thicker side, soft but with a well hidden bit of bitterness. Main theme is well roasted malt, dark coffe and chocolate. Nice and decent but nothing spectacular.
