ElDesmadre (3222) - Mikołůw, POLAND - JUL 13, 2015
Bottle, kindly provided by Cantabrian. Vanilla, coffee, chocolate liqueur, liquorice. A subtle, salty maritime note is detectable already in the aroma. Upon the first sip the senses register a deep roast mingled with liquorice, which then transforms into a lovely dark chocolate and coffee mix, only to finish again deep roasted and dry. Subtly sweet and subtly bitter, with the saltiness being stronger and the roast (the kind you get from extinguished wood in a bonfire) dominating. With every sip the palate gets more salty, while steering clear of gose-like levels. Excellent stuff.

Pours dark with a brown beige head. Aroma is quite heavy, has coffee, roasted malts, bit if alcohol bites. Taste has some nice toffee, chocolate, roast malts. Dark fruits and coffee. Bitter chocolate. Aftertaste is long with plenty of roast bitterness. Very nice actually.

Pdubyah (643) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 19, 2014
I may have over-expected on this, or had it after two exceptionally good Stouts, but this wasnít all that. I thought that it wasnít a lot of things. Then I thought it was ok as a stout but that it wasnít serious about it. Lacks depth, flavours, carry, notes and things that make you want another, Fair to middling unless you want to buy me more and prove me wrong,

Pours a rich, thick black with a tiny white head. Faint yeasty aroma, smooth to drink with strong burnt coffee flavour. Definitely worth a try.

maneliquor (3484) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 24, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours very dark brown with a small tan head which quickly disappears. Some light spotty lacing. Nose shows heavy powdery cocoa and sea salt. Quite roasty. Straight forward stuff but very appealing either way. Taste shows heavy roast, milk chocolate, salt, almost briney. A real powdery and creamy mouth feel to it. Damn well made

Bottle from Plonk. Oily black, tight non-lasting tan head, sweet, chocolatey, slightly salty (or is that my imagination?), strong roast malt bitterness, but very smooth to drink. Very enjoyable.

brnandersen (3352) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 4, 2013
Sample from 50 cl. bottle. Pitch black with a small, dense tan head. Sweet aroma with roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, some herbal hops. Taste is sweet. Medium body, creamy texture - rather pleasant. Finishes bitter with chocolate and a hint of salty licorice. Very nice stout.
