fidelis83 (2267) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 15, 2013
Clear, very dark brown pour with garnet edges and a 3 finger, chunky tan head. Aroma is nutty, roasty and burnt fried bread, planty hops and interesting earthy, fruity notes. Flavor is roasted nuts, roast, char (something like normal roasty char, but with an underlying, though barely noticeable burnt vegetable oil taste), burnt peanuts, light char, light planty and herbal hops, smoke and some fruity and berry-like notes. Finishes with roast, char, leather, earth and fruity notes. Light body, dry slightly chalky feel throughout with a light carbonation. Pretty tasty, nice roasty kick for a 4.5% stout

nephirem (51) - CROATIA - FEB 2, 2016
Pours a very dark ruby, almost black colour with a small beige head. Smell is very faint and slightly roasted. As it warms up, the smell gets more intense and defined, more on the sweet side carried by caramel and fruits. Medium body, medium carbonation. Gets somewhat creamy on tongue which is very nice. Taste is roasted malts, caramel and a bit of coffee. Subtle aroma of dark berries further enriches the flavour. Finish is slightly bitter. Excellent balance all over - this beer goes down very, very smoothly. Overall, itís a great stout - recommended!

EpischeBreite (2) - AUSTRIA - JAN 31, 2016 does not count
Dark brown color, almost black with brown head. Aroma has a bit of roast / smoke. Taste is not what I expected from the aroma. Just a bit of chocolate and vanilla in the background. Body is weak with low carbonation. I expected more on the taste though.

Bottle - dense black with only small tan head. Coffee roast aroma, good mouthfeel. Coffee chocolate tasting, ending roasted malts - but not a harsh finish. Pleasant tasting, easy drinking stout.

Aroma is roasted malt, toasted notes from wet wood. Taste is of course a bit thin, but still with a pleasant mild nutty bitterness and dark bread.
