It is brewed with roast barley, crystal malt and oats and hopped just right with Glacier hops.

Kita (1198) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 28, 2013
Bottled, 0.355l, shared with CanCrusher. Pours almost black with thin creamy light brown head and nice lacing. Aroma of heavy roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and caramel. Taste starts with sweet and sour liquorice / chicory, follows by sweet chocolate and strong coffee, while finish is light herbal hoppy. Full body, creamy texture and soft carbonation in palate. Very interesting stout...

Barreras (1054) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Pours a black color with a coffee aroma. Taste has a slight hickory wood chip taste mixed with rich rosated coffee. A simple flavored stout that dissipates quckly but lingers on the palate. A smooth beer that was enjoyable.

Bottle. Pours black with a small tan head. Roasty aroma. Flavor of roast and dark coffee. Palate is pretty light for a stout, but I guess that makes sense at only 5.2%. Just picked up this four pack in the last month, but see that it has a 2012 date on it. That probably doesn’t help a light beer like this one. Still though it is a nice beer. If there is such thing as a session stout then I guess this would qualify. Its a nice option. Certainly could drink a couple of these without any aftereffects.

Bottled 2011: E20:50 Pours a dark brown with a transient finger of tan head. This falls to a scattering of surface bubbles. I can smell the chicory and coffee quickly backed up with a sweet and dark malt backbone providing the slightest milk chocolate note. Nice nose. A fairly dry and sweet stout with a meaty flavor in there. The coffee is present, but subdued. The mouthfeel is dryly light bodied with moderate carb and a wet finish. The aromas on this brew are the primary things going for it. The flavor is a far cry from the smells and the mouthfeel is thin and watery. I would drink again, but not likely to go out of my way for it. Serving type: bottle 01-20-2012

Frahmo (316) - Idaho, USA - DEC 13, 2013
dark pour with very little head. Coffee flavor was evident on a very light body. It says stout, but drinks much more like an ale. Had a bitter backend that I did not enjoy.

CanCrusher (670) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - DEC 8, 2013
Bottle 0,33L. Thanks to Kita for sharing. Black colour with light brown, frothy head. Very good aroma of strong dark coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts, caramel and brown sugar. Taste sterts light acidic and ends light bitter with strong coffee flavor. Medium to full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Good one!

Tasted on January 13, 2013: A: A very dark brown/black color when poured and has about an inch of foam that remains very well. S: Very strong chocolate aroma right up front. Coffee scent isn’t as strong, but still there. I smell something else that I can’t distinguish. I’m assuming it’s the chicory since i’m not sure what that smells like. T: Very strong chocolate notes right off that bat. Coffee notes are stronger in the taste then in the smell. Coffee has a burnt flavor to it. There is a very noticeable cream taste in the end. M: Long lasting coffee taste that stays on the palate. A rather creamy texture left in my mouth. Not heavy in the mouth at all. O: I’m not the biggest fan of stout’s, but I find this one rather enjoyable. If i’m in the mood for a strong coffee tasting stout in the winter, i’ll give this one another go. Serving type: bottle

Erzengel (3554) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2013
Rating from 2009. Röstmalziger, schokoladiger Geruch, tiefschwarze Farbe. Der Antrunk ist röstmalzig-schokoladig, sehr süffig, aber etwas wässrig. Im Hauptteil ist das Bier angenehm röstmalzig, schokoladig-mild, ganz leicht säuerlich.
--> ein sehr leckeres Stout, aber nichts Besonderes!
