Poured from 300mL bottle. Dark brown with very minimal beige head. Very malty nose with some hint of sweet molasses and vanilla. Sweet taste, unexpectedly similar to an abbey ale, with some typical stout flavour mixed in. Light and oily texture. Would I buy again? Yeah, I think so.

Butelka 330ml . Ciemny kolor z lekkim rubinowym refleksem. Piana dosc obfita -bezowa,szybko opadajaca. Aromat slodowy,lekka czekolada. W smaku palone slody brazowe cukry melasa cola szczatkowa czekolada. Piwo bardzo wodniste . Brakuje w nim takze przewodniej nuty smakowej lub czegokolwiek charakterystycznego dla gatunku. Mysle ze slodycz nie polepsza walorow smakowych rowniez. Jest ok ale ....Pite 6.09.16 aby uczcic pierwszy dzien w szkole mlodego...

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2016 Bouteille avec un BB du 07/08/2017. Code indiquant 07B16, donc peut-être un embouteillage le 07/02/2016, bue après 7 mois. Robe noire opaque surmontée d’un col de mousse beige et laiteux. Arômes de malt rôti, chocolat au lait, petits fruits ainsi qu’une légère acidité venant de ces derniers. Nez plutôt simplet et fade. En bouche, malt rôti avec beaucoup de petits fruits sucrés qui ne semblent pas totalement naturels. Un peu de chocolat au lait et pruneaux. Finale un peu désagréable d’anis, de café trop sucré et de caramel cramé. Texture laiteuse et corps moyen. On s’en lasse rapidement.

Pours dark brown with a brown head. Aroma of cola, green apples and chocolate. Taste is lightly bitter and moderately sweet

tfontana (690) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 4, 2016
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Manchester Wine & Liquors. Appearance is dark brown/mahogany--almost opaque black, with finger-width brown head with fair retention, mild lacing. Aroma is roasted malt with good amounts of dark fruit and some chocolate. Taste is moderately sweet roasted malts with some dark fruit character. Palate is medium bodied with average texture, surprisingly lively carbonation and somewhat sweet but dry finish. Overall, aroma is the most intriguing thing about the beer but it is pretty straightforward and OK. Not always the greatest fan of adjuncts, and corn syrup is not one I’m keen on seeing a lot more of.

Steffan (58) - WALES - JUL 29, 2016
Aroma of sweet cola, appearance slightly thin brown colour, fast dissappearing brown head, taste is sweet yet oddly sour at the same time, not like a proper stout at all, way too thin for the style. Sugar, molasses dominate the palate leaving a watered down sweetness in the aftertaste. Horrid!

Just numbers and attributes from old notes: berries, cola, coffee sugary roasted malts.

A fairly unique tasting stout. Has the malt flavours you get with Jamaican malt drinks such as: Supermalt. Flavours are of blackcurrant, cocoa, coffee, burnt sugar and some sort of herbal medicinal flavour (think Jagermeister). I would try it again. Price paid: £1

BeardedAvenger (191) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2016
Bottle at home, 01/07/16. Bought at Tesco, Byfleet. Distinctive aroma - cough syrup is the first thing that comes to mind. Chocolate and liquorice. A think body, with carbonation on the tongue. Much sweeter than I was expecting, with a light bitter aftertaste. It reminds me of kotikalja, the homemade non-alcoholic beer from Finland. Just with that alcohol kick. Far too sweet and don’t particularly enjoy the sensation from the palate.

Joeheth3 (2) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2016 does not count
A very dark beer with a light head. Smell is that of a bitter Stout, not very particularly but almost caramel or molasses. Taste is bitter and pleasant at first, but then quickly becomes overly sweet and almost unnatural. The texture is again poor, flat, watery and not smooth or creamy in particular. Tastes slightly coffee ish, flavours of burnt caramel or molasses but too sweet and not particularly pleasant. Not for me.
