chinchill (1371) - South Carolina, USA - APR 17, 2014
500 ml bottle with a B date of 6 Jan. 2014. Clear, very dark red-brown; opaque in the pint glass. Aroma: fine but faint. Feel: Medium body; medium+ (slightly too high?) carbonation. Flavor: mild and light up front; some richness, mainly from dark malts, in the finish and aftertaste. A hint of coffee. O: do not serve too cold: a richer and more complex flavor unfolds at warmer temps.

rubbishystuff (1756) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2014
Great quaffing stout. Dryish but not enough to make it a dry stout, medium levels of roasted flavor and malt, thin body but it works as it is a session ale. Good, nice minerals too. Serving: Bottle

RW80 (341) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 31, 2014
0,5 cl bottle Appearance: Black with a cloudy slightly tanned head.Nice lacing, ok retention. Aroma: Faint roasted malts, sweet chocolate, but it suggest a thin not so complex palate. Taste: Fuller as the aroma roasted and toasted malts and a nice bitter chocoilate taste, Finish is dry. Slight sourness and medium sweetness. Thin-medium body, slightl below average carbonation The Aroma doesn’t do the taste full justice. With 4.5 %ABV a good everyday stout,
