Pours an opaque black with tan head one finger that quickly dissipates. leaving small to moderate lacing. Aroma of strong caramel, roasted malt. Hint of herbal hops. Very sweet. Very thin with minimum to moderate carbonation Long sweet finish. This is disappointing, I hate to say.

Poměrně pitelný stout, skoro až začínám uvažovat o nějaké dovolené na Maltě :)

Pours an almost pitch black color, with a quickly disappearing, fluffy brown head. Sweet aroma, some chocolate and caramel notes, but with a funkiness... Thin, metallic body is met with a slightly roasted, sweet malt character. Great, lingering bitterness.

Hoser (370) - Cowtown, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 22, 2007
Sweet and very full bodied for the ABV and a good crossing between milk chocolate and stout. Page 164 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide only 193 of his 500 Classic Brews to go.

Serving: from bottle--purchased at The Beer Junction. Aroma: light apple, wood, grape. Appearance: very small, rocky, light brown initial head with no lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Dark-brown body. Taste: lightly sweet, clove, vanilla, apple initial flavor and lightly sweet, chocolate finish with short duration. Palate: light body, thin, watery texture and flat carbonation. Overall: below average. The aroma was interesting, but the taste was strange and the palate was terrible-really watery, thin and flat.

AndrewC (337) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2007
A dark beer with a copper tinge to it. The smell is a combination of dog sick and spoiled milk. It tastes of dilute battery acid mixed with milk on the turn. Awful

Very dark body, miniature tan head. Milky coffee scent. Very light palate, caramel sour milk flavour with some funk.

Flaske delt med Flemming. Flot sort øl med gult skum, der forsvinder relativt hurtigt. Dufter af ristet malt, men lidt for meget af jordagtig gær. Smagen er umiddelbart sød, men bliver hurtigt lidt vammel og bitter.

0.33l bottle. Dark brown with a light brown head that dissappears quickly. Caramel, coffee and roasted aroma. Liqurice, earthy tones. Some hints of coffee. Low bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Na to piwo trafiłem w dwóch wersjach (obok siebie na półce, żeby było śmieszniej): taka sama butelka 0,25 l, ten sam skład, drobna różnica w etykiecie, ale zupełnie inne kapsle (jeden firmowy, drugi golas. Opisuje wersje z firmowym kapslem, bo była o wiele lepsza. Nie wiem z czym wiąże się różnica. Aromat: z butelki czuć nawet suszoną śliwkę i słody palone. Piana beżowa, o średniej wielkości bąbelkach, szybko znikająca. Barwa: ciemna, bardzo głęboki rubin. Smak: laktoza niewyczuwalna. Trochę nut karmelowych. Odczucie: tekstura niska, nasycenie niskie.
