toscanoigor (40) - - MAY 3, 2016
Uma típica dry stout. Escura, transparente, com ótima formação de espuma, média persistência. Aroma marcante de café e malte torrado, chocolate. Sabor acompanhando o aroma, com final seco, persistência do torrado e amargor moderado. O corpo e carbonatação média dão uma ótima drinkability.

Bozo_skeleton (908) - Grenoble, FRANCE - APR 24, 2016
Noire, grosse carbo, collet moyen de fine bulles, persistant. Aromes peu puissant, chocolat, café, pain Mousse cremeuse a souhait, vive et mince a l’attaque, l’interret se porte sur la finale persistante bien café et bien seche.

Jyrsa (416) - - APR 20, 2016
Bottle from milk store. Pours clear dark brown with light beige head. Faint nose of roast, berries, chocolate. Light body, nice and bitter with watery palate and a slightly toasty finish. Good enough for a low abv stout but a bit watery for my tastes.

Blastomorpha (46) - - APR 17, 2016
Straightforward example of the genre. A bit lackluster in aroma and taste to be honest, but very easy to drink.

mkel07 (4879) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 14, 2016
Bottle from Cool Wine 140416. It's heading towards stout weather so I'm getting in early. Smooth burnt flavours fill the mouth. Super dark in colour with a slight head. Hints of chocolate and vanilla in the finish.
