Brewed with a combination of five different malts, some heavily roasted for a near jet black appearance, and beneath its dark exterior features luxurious red berry notes, toasty aromas on the nose and culminates in a dry, bitter finish.

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

pompa w jabeerwocky. na szybko: raczej wodnisty, raczej delikatny, raczej kawowo-czekoladowy z karmelem i chlebem, raczej ziewajacy, raczej za delikatny w tym wszystkim, raczej rozczarowanie, choc wypic sie daje bez zadnych negatywnych konsekwencji na twarzy a la skrzywienie :)

DruncanVeasey (7768) - NUNEATON, 3rd, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2015
Handsome tactile bottle from a Chavsda in Norwich. Good as black slim lidded with nicotine. Nose butter scooped into coffee, carob, dried peppers, bramble and liquorice. Bittersweet and ladled with bitter chocolate, carob, prune, plummier tones sprinkled with ash and rust. Burnt pistachio in the blender. Bit schwarz-like. Bitter linger leavened with lactic tones. Not bad.

Brew_Cat (55) - Athens, GREECE - SEP 10, 2015
50cl bottle shared @home. Pours opaque black, with small diminishing off-white head. Medium body for a stout, and the palate is poor for my taste or perception of a good stout. Malty, aromas of roasted coffee beans, grains, burnt caramel. Rich in hops, mostly citrus peels. Not as high in alcohol, fair lacing, bitter aftertaste. I’m used to more complex stouts, but this one didn’t have a special character. Fair but not extraordinary.

jsporrer (151) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2015
Pours black with little head. Not much aroma to speak of. Seemed very thin and somewhat watery for a stout. Weak without much flavor, rather bland.
