StoutHead (942) - DENMARK - JAN 18, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours completely black with a huge tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and fruit. Taste is of roasted malts, fruits, lots of hops, spices, coffee, licorice and sugar and yeast. Medium to full body and high carbonation. Bitter and burned with a nice roasted finish that has that De Dolle tartness to it. Pretty damn good.

leghorn99 (212) - Livorno, ITALY - JAN 16, 2016
Bellissimo l’aspetto, di colore nero impenetrabile; sontuosa anche la schiuma, compatta, a trama fine e cremosissima, molto persistente, di colore nocciola. Al naso sentori di mirtillo, mela verde, una leggera speziatura, orzo tostato; man mano che la birra si scalda emerga anche una leggera acidità (lattico). Annusandola ad occhi chiusi, difficilmente verrebbe da dire che si tratta di una stout. Anche il gusto è abbastanza particolare, ci sono le tostature, c’è qualche lieve nota di caffè e cioccolato che ogni tanto fa capolino, ma c’è soprattutto una marcata acidità lattica affiancata da note rustiche e terrose. Il gusto, poco pulito, è nel complesso gradevole e l’acidità fa sì che questa birra dal 9% di grado alcolico si beva con una facilità commuovente. Il finale è ancora più sorprendente: leggermente salino, una nota di pelle/cuioio, con un retrogusto morbido ed etilico di frutta sotto spirito (prugna, uvetta) e tostature.

Keg at Cafe Beermoth, Manchester. Dark brown with a short tan head. Very interesting throughout. Has a kind of dark chocolate, brown sugar and caramel taste with a dry, raisin-like fruitiness. Quite a bit going on; not your average stout.

Shark_Pants (587) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 28, 2015
Deep impenetrable black pour with huge frothy tan head. Lots of roasty aromas - black coffee, charred meat, with some licorice, cherry and a little red wine. The taste has char grilled steak, light vinous astringency, licorice, a little plum, coffee and a lot of dark chocolate in the finish. Fairly light bodied, oily but highly carbonated. Complex and interesting stout.
