4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A little 275ml served in a snifter
A - Pours the darkest of browns with a thin mocha head morphing into a thin wispy ceiling of micro bubbles.
S - Yeasty dark breads, pumpernickel, raisins, fig jam,
T - Roasted creamy malts, toasted cocoa, firm woody bitterness, brown raisin bread, roasted figs, smoked malts, molasses, cold espresso, finishes with a nirvana mix of fruit bread, caramelized brown sugar, bitter hops, espresso, anise, doughy brown bread.
M - Low carbonation, dense creamy feel, medium weighted body.
Very complex and delicious. The roast takes a backseat and lets the raw heavy malt play out with the yeast. Very raw, bold flavors delicately interweaved together. Wish it came in a bigger bottle.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle - Pours very dark brown w/ brown head, lots of retention. Smells of chocolate, roasted malts, and coffee. More rich, creamy chocolate in the taste plus some coffee, dark malt, and so dark fruit at the end.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2012 Vintage. Lots of caramel aroma for a stout. No head. Some smoke and fruit flavors. Espresso finishes it off. Quite different for a stout but quite enjoyable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled at Masterclass by Ron Pattinson @ de Prael. Dark color, short head. Aroma has a huge alcohol nose, together with some roasted malts and coffee, hint of fruity english yeast, no brett around. Alcohol in taste as well, bit bitter, bit sweet. Bit overpowered by the alcohol, which I didnt expect to be honest.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Heavy flavor of laktris. Heavy scent. Long aftertaste of laktris. But I think this beer was a bit overrated. Had more expectations of this beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl / King of Beer @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2012 bottle. Lots of thick foamy head, doesn’t have the nice tan colour, looks more like the creamy stuff you get from Guinness. Colour is pitch black but not as thick as I was expecting. The smell is sweet, with hints of oak, black liquorice, coffee and chocolate. Taste is lots of black liquorice, bit of heat from the booze and a molasses like finish that also manages to be sweet. Very enjoyable, not to bold but nice for sure.

Bottle from ales unlimited sf. Pours a nice rich dark black with medium bodied tan head that quickly dissipates. Coffee aroma, didn’t pick up anything else really. Mildly bitter. A nice RIS

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Here I was expecting to be disappointed. I mean, come on, originally brewed for some long dead monarch... who gives a f***? Must have been written by a marketing wanker with trendy sideburns, right? Well, maybe. But this is a hugely delicious, well balanced, full-figured stout. What a nice surprise.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
27.5cl bottle courtesy of and shared with Gnoff. Bottle #159076.
Brune foncée, col beige-moka laissant une belle pellicule dorée au verre.
Arôme est malté, grillé, fruité noir, léger chocolat, malt crystal, noir et sucre résiduel.
Palais est épais avec une pointe de malt ajoutant une amertume modérée. Le tout est splendide avec u stout dans la plus pure tradition anglaise. Note de café et de grillé couplé à un malt plus dans les tons pâle. Pointe fruité noire, palais sec, avec un rappel presque de fudge et biscuité. Collant au lèvres.
