(Bottle) Pours a dark brown color with an average-sized tan head. Aroma is of roasted malt and coffee. A little bit thin of a body for a stout. Flavors of roasted malt, grapes, and coffee.

Pours like motor oil into a dense ruby-black colour. Aroma is rich, roasty and inviting. Flavour of slightly sour coffee and bittersweet chocolate. Would be a really great beer if the body wasn’t so thin.

Roasty black with good coffee aroma but then did not live up to its aroma and presentation. Watery, roast and not much else. Some yeast in there not much carbonation. Thanks GregClow .

Black, chocolate coloured head is agoraphobic. Very pleasant, slight roasty flavour profile. Aroma reminds me of other foreign stouts I have had. The palate is pretty watery and is the biggest downfall of this beer. Thanks GregClow.

Bottle. Very dark oily pour with no real head to speak of. Nose is very mild. Flavor notes are: roasted malt, raisin, LOTS of smoke (the smoke taste really grabs you), and a little bit of hops bitterness (but not much). The mouthfeel is a little slick, but that does not detract from the beer. The finish is very nice and smooth with just a little bitter bite. This is an excellent stout and would be a perfect session beer. If I had to pick out one thing to compain about, it would be that this beer is overall very mild. I usualy expect a little more of a bite from a stout. I wish I had bought more than one of these.

Bottle from Stirchley Wines and Spirits. Jet black, very small head. Liqueur coffee aroma. Rather tasty: a mixture of flavours, including acidic coffee notes. Grainy and fizzy on the tongue, with a an overall sweet oatiness. Jellybean finish.

I was pleasantly surprised by this one, as I wasn’t expecting much. Very drinkable and enjoyable. Smooth, yet bold. I recommend this one.
