LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - NOV 2, 2009
Bottle - This is a good stout, but doesn’t really offer anything unique. Typical roasted malt and chocolate nose. Alcohol well masked.

minihame2 (249) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 18, 2015
Pours black with a thin tan head, typical stout look. Roasty and malty aroma, not too strong. Very soft taste, mild bitterness. Rounded maltyness towards the end. Mouthfeel is somewhat watery. Decent but pretty much average stout.

radagast83 (5363) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - DEC 9, 2014

TBone (13447) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 22, 2014
Can 350ml (from Japan)
Deep ruby color, small beige head. Aroma is a bit ashy, cardboardish-papery. Medium-bodied. Toasted malty, licorice, caramel, bitterish aftertaste. Even with roastyness gives a bit Baltic Porterish feeling. Taste is ok, but aroma was bland.

jinroh (624) - ESTONIA - AUG 30, 2014
330ml bottle from Yamaya Liquors. Pours dark brown, almost black with a beige head. Foam is not too rich but some lacing stays for longer. Aroma has roasted malt, is quite soft. Taste is soft as well, almost like a milk stout / kind of sweet and soft roast. Aftertaste is nice, has a lot of roast, bitter chocolate. Overall quite nice brew, on the sweeter side but quite enjoyable.

Pours from 330ml bottle nearly black with a beige head. Lightly roasted malts, toffee, chocolate, and light earthy notes. Very low carbonation sweet roasty finish.
