COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Brewed with a combination of five different malts, some heavily roasted for a near jet black appearance, and beneath its dark exterior features luxurious red berry notes, toasty aromas on the nose and culminates in a dry, bitter finish.

Fisler (58) - GERMANY - NOV 7, 2014
Sehr dunkles Glas, Schaum bleibt leicht über dem Körper erhalten. In der Nase sehr schokoladig. Schmeckt cremig, leicht bitter. Aber was für ein Abgang. Erst stark bitter, dann Kaffee, dann Schokolade.

Kauge (357) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle from Tallinna Kaubamaja (€ 3,20). Pours black with a ruby hue and a retaining tan head that leaves some nice lacing too. Nose is roasty-ashy malts, sweet nutty chocolate and some indistinct dark berries, cocoa. Taste is nicely balanced out between chocolaty sweet and roasty malts, with a hint of dry ashiness. Finishes with very modest bitterness that abruptly turns into a more roasty and malty effect. Palate smooth and soft, body medium plus, carbonation soft (I remember it being pricklier in the past). Too tired to contemplate on it more properly. Anyway I really like this one. Should maybe re-review next year.

0.5l bottle. Black color with beige head. Aroma is roasted barley and coffee. Taste is slightly bitter with roasted barley notes and some sweetness. Medium to full body and average carbonation. Overall it’s nice and tasty stout.

mR_fr0g (3976) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2014
Bottle at home picked up at Morrisons. Dark caramel brown with ruby red highlights, clear, with a lasting mid tan head. Good looking beer. Aroma is initially really nice fruit and nut choc, caramel, and nice fruity esters. Later a bit soapy, and some ashy roast. Flavour is composed of smooth roast, dried fruits, raisin and fig, hint of choc. Nice acrid roast in the finish. Palate is medium full body, with chalky carbonation. Tasty stout.

fajry (793) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 25, 2014
Fľaša. Čierna farba, pena veľmi rýchlo padla. Vôňa pražených sladov, kávy a tmavej čokolády. V chuti opäť pražené slady, jemne káva a karamel. Prázdne telo, osviežujúci koniec.
