COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle & Keg; Filtered & pasteurised.

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.

Bottle. Black colour, rocky head that disappears rather quickly. Aroma is quite intensive liquorice, a bit roasty. I would expect more coffee and dark chocolate from a stout... Light sweetness. Light body, quite smooth. It’s ok, but lacks character and does not taste like a stout.

Cerveja totalmente preta e brilhante com espuma presente, baixa e puxada para o bege. A aparência é convidativa e já se espera uma cerveja forte. O aroma é marcado pelo café e já é possível prever a presença do malte torrado. O sabor é excelente; o corpo médio e a espuma leve faz com que a cerveja seja refrescante apesar do toque acentuado de café. Apesar do forte amargor, o álcool é pouco perceptivo, já que é coberto pelo café e malte torrados. A experiência de tomá-la é surpreendente; ao pegar o copo espera-se uma cerveja pesada e difícil de tomar, mas a drinkability é excelente e o aftertaste amargo e seco na medida certa. Apesar do frescor, cai bem no inverno e é ótima como sobremesa para limpar o sabor da comida.

DIBBLE (85) - Worthing, West Sussex, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2015
Pours from bottle thick and reddish black with short lived tan head that disappeared without trace. Aroma of licorice and roast malt with underlying notes of garage forecourt coffee vending machine! (?) Low carbonation with mild tongue fizz. Dense mouth feel. Taste is like aroma but petroleum bitterness is upfront on the finish. Wondering if glass was contaminated? Very odd.

Sweet dark aroma. Very black appearance. Not as thick as I was expecting for a stout. Decent head for a bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Zwiebel88 (477) - GERMANY - MAR 13, 2015
Schwarz, dunkelbraun. Malzig, dunkle Früchte, leichte Kakaonoten. Am Gaumen kakao, Malz, könnte kräftiger sein, aber für 4,5% absolut okay. Etwas dünn.

nihtila (1450) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2015
9.7.2014. Malty roasted aromas, coffee, some liquorice. Taste is similar. A bit watery cause of low abv but surprisingly good.

Malrider69 (73) - Central Coast, AUSTRALIA - MAR 11, 2015
Pours a dark brown to black colour with a soapy, thin, light brown coloured head. The aroma is of malt and the taste mild to bland with a slight bitterness that is very short-lasting on the palate. This beer is more like an old that a stout. I would not recommend it.

Pours very dark brown with a small head. Aroma of roastiness and caramel. Taste of roasted malts. Beer is light bodied, very smooth.

Finom darab. Minden jót érezni benn. Étcsoki, pörkölt maláta és kávé illat! Ez egy pici keser?séggel megf?szerezve a végén. Nem drága, viszont egy igazi stout. Egy halovány vizességet viszont éreztem, de lehet, hogy túl szigorú vagyok.
