Bottle, 50cl - Black opaque beer with a good head. Aroma is malty with notes of digestive biscuits, coffee, chocolate and cereal. Flavor is malty with notes of hay, biscuits, coffee and malt. Love it when stouts below 5% are this well made.

Mélyfekete szín, vékony enyhén színezett hab. Illatában cukros, karamellás, pörköltes jegyek vonulnak fel. Izében fellelhető karamellás jelleg emellett erőteljesen pörkölt kávés íz világgal rendelkezik. Bárcsak ezt ihatnám minden nap!

Pours black with an off-white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are roasted and toasted malt, liquorice, and a little chocolate - with a slightly dry finish.

gregwilsonstl (1185) - Missouri, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Jet black....poured into my fancy stout glass. Thick foamy creamy tan head. Fizzy. Hint of cherries? (cant tell if thats what it is) Burnt toast. Very subtly sweet at first, then rounds out to dryness. Nice stout.

Unde (465) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 14, 2015
Dark brown colour, beige head on top and some lacing too. Aroma has chocolate, grassy hops and roasted malts. Taste has chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, just a little too thin. Light body but the medium carbonation makes this a bit bolder. Pretty ok light stout.

Bottle 500 ml (Annelinna Prisma, Tartu). Almost black. Small head. Coffee and smoked malt notes in taste, both sweetness and bitterness appear. Enjoyable.

kajser27 (72) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 11, 2015
Almost completely black, low tan head. Aroma sweet caramel, milk to dark chocolate, Nescaffe coffee. Taste sweet milk chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, licorice. Not too bitter coffee dry finish. Medium, creamy head. When in doubt... Fuller’s!

TheFoamhead (149) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2015
There is the typical roasted coffe taste, there is also the dry hop note - but there is more. The used oat gives a slight sour note that is unusual to a Stout and not my thing. The body is quite weak and the dry finish washes away too fastly. Maybe that this one would be better draught, but it won’t be my favourite... I miss the typical kick of a Stout. It’s not bad - but it’s not the real thing either. The smell invited me, the taste let me leave again.

Pours black. Aroma and taste are some roasted malts, lightly sweet with a lightly bitter finish.
