lokis333 (351) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - JUL 13, 2016
Deep dark black color though clear with frothy coffee foam. Aromas of burned malts, chocolate, coffee with hints of salted caramel. (but on the weaker side for aromas.) Palate, full body with smooth creamy texture leaing light bit watery slight toasty finish. Taste is lightly bitter of dark malts and burned toast but is quite watery alnd light as in finish but then does develop longer charcoal taste. Overall, not bad, bit too light and simple in taste for a stout, thoguh has nice creamy full palate. Do give it a try.

Zekso (17) - POLAND - JUL 2, 2016
Jest to piwo ciemnosłodowe o niezbyt wyraźnym charakterze. W aromacie lekko metaliczna kawa inka i ziemniak, w smaku jest podobnie. Kawa czekolada ale jej charakter nie jest zachwycający. Nic niezwykłego raczej.

Bottle from Morrisons. (4 for £6) Had this 3 years ago and thought it was a decent stout. This time, it is really disappointing - either my palate has changed, or this has. Whatever the reason, this bottle is really bland and forgettable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Terminus (3544) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 20, 2016
bottle-sampled while on deployment in Africa Pours Pretty much pitch black with a nice rocky dark tan head and sparse lacing. Nose is roasty, dry, lite char, coco. Flavors exhibit the roast and coca flavors very nicely. Very dry, perfect for a dry stout. has a full body considering the ABV. Decent Full bodied stout. I will drink this again on this deployment.

EvNa (33) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2016
Bottle. Very dark color, as a stout should be. Tastes of chocolate, coffee, roasted and a little bit smokey. Very drinkable, but a bit too flat for me.

Fules (640) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 4, 2016
Könnyed, szinte egyáltalán nem keserű, enyhe étcsokoládés jelleg, fűszeresség nem jellemző, inkább semleges íz.

I_LUV_BEER (140) - - JUN 2, 2016
Served in a snifter from a 500ml bottle. Pours almost black colour with a tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, prunes and slight coffee and chocolate notes. Taste is slightly nutty with notes of chocolate, coffee and prunes. Light to medium body with medium carbonation and silky texture. Not a complex one which makes it a very enjoyable session stout.
