Joakgust (890) - Stockholm, - OCT 18, 2012
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.

Pours black, with a firm white head. The aroma is very roasty. Bitter taste, consisting mainly of burnt coffee and liquorice.

Kosmokrator (486) - ITALY - SEP 13, 2014
Nera e quasi impenetrabile con un sottile velo di schiuma beige chiaro. Aroma deboluccio, tostato e leggermente caffettoso con un sentore di cioccolato appena accennato. Gusto un poí vuoto e abbastanza classico dove si mescolano note di espresso, cacao e malto abbrustolito. Corpo lieve, effervescenza debole, struttura setosa ed un poí acquosa. Non amo alla follia le stout "semplici" e questa non fa eccezione, anche se tutto sommato Ť ben "confezionata".

LasseVPedersen (243) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle, 50cl. Pours a black colour that settles with a fine, foamy beige head. In the nose youíll find roasted, dark malts, coffee, liquorice, milk chocolate and some berries. Flavour follows the nose with roasted creamy malt notes, a light bitter coffee taste that ends with a chocolate, dark fruits silky light and smooth palate. Dry finish with herbal hops in the balanced bitterness. Watery light body, but very delightful mouth-feel. Soft carbonation. Quite good.

greenclansman (797) - Nicosia, CYPRUS - SEP 11, 2014
Thin black color, nice head. Roasted malt aromas, some coffee-light-chocolate. Nice smooth taste, session-able body, balanced aftertaste. Not an amazing stout, but for sure a very decent one.

slowrunner77 (2131) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 6, 2014
"Wish lister based in the goodness of London Porter and Vintage Ale. Looks like a porter, but with luxurious head. Smell is roasted dark malts, berries and cocoa. There is a distinctly Fullers (or maybe just English yeast and hops) aspect to the aroma and flavor. Light yet full flavored. Not incredibly dry, lingering lightly bitter cocoa berry finish. Well put together ale. Glad to enjoy one without all the alcomohol :) "

Had read good things about this one, and while itís a decent stout, I wasnít blown away, sadly. A 6.5 out of 10.

Yorker (1196) - Herning, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2014
50 cl bottle @ home. 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.

aronvarga (298) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 24, 2014
500 ml bottle. Clear, sparkling, deep black colour, long-life medium sized frothy medium beige head, slight roasted and cocoa aroma, from light to medium body, soft carbonation, sweet cream malty and dry roasted taste, roasted palate with moderate earthy hoppy notes and with dry fruity notes (especially plum, prunes and raisins). Well-balanced and smooth Stout style beer. Fine.

bierkoning (10210) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2014
Deep dark brown color. Roast, ash and apple syrup in the aroma. Malty sweet, soft roasty flavor. Hints of ash and licorice. Tasty stout.
