Bottle: Aroma is mainly roasty with dark chocolate notes and roasted cacao beans. Almost black color, brownish head. Flavor is malty, roasty, slightly fruity, notes of dark chocolate, mocca and burnt malt. Bitterness and cacao powder in the end. Nice.

AlfredoGarcia (69) - Santiago, CHILE - MAR 20, 2015
500 ml bottle. Very malty smell, not toasted at all, sweet and caramel has well. Deep dark look with brown little head. Low carbonation with soft toasted taste and with long aftertaste. Good refreshing stout.

Vaiz (3709) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 20, 2015
Bottle at home. Black pour, thick tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, some ripe dark fruits, sugary malts, caramel and some fruity hops. Flavor is slightly bitter, nice and sweet, a very decent body for the low ABV and a great balance. Well drinkable stout. Nice one.

wozap (193) - Węgorzewo, POLAND - MAR 19, 2015
Ciemnobrązowy kolor, piana drobna beżowa. Aromat palonego karmelu i kawy. Smak palonego słodu, kawy i czekolady. Zaznaczona łagodna goryczka.

Derbeth (420) - Kraków, POLAND - MAR 17, 2015
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 (42) - 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 (423) - 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 (1157) - 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.
