330 ml bottle. Pours black colour. Tan head. Aroma of roasted barley, bread crust, smoke, burnt grain. Taste is the same. Thin body. Watery palate. Some roasted bitterness detected. Well, nothing special. Expected more from this beer.

Actually had on fraught. Lovely head and black body. Aroma heavy roasted with cream. More cream and roast malt. Bitterness in the finish. Classic, but a bit too much bitter in stout for me.

Giochaurand (353) - FINLAND - MAR 24, 2016
Tap. Pours black with a frothy large tanned head. Aroma is malts, rye, burnt sugar and esters. Somewhat milky palate, taste of roasted malts, coffee and very faint hops. Bitter-ish. Oldie but goodie.

Hopmaestro (1141) - ÷rebro, SWEDEN - MAR 21, 2016
From can with widget: Aroma is mild but roasted malts and licorice with dark chocolates. Taste is sweet and brings the same tastenotes as the aroma. Pretty thin stuff.

I only bought this to get the Untappd badge...

Black beer with a creamy,beige-brown head.
Not much of a nose. Just a hint of roasted malt.
A small taste of rosted malt, a little bit of coffee and nothing more...
Smooth with a dry ending. Almost no carbonation. Waterish mouthfeel.

Roasty, hints of coffee, white/tan indestructible head, beautiful black, law carbonation, light/medium body, taste of coffee, roasted malts, not too bitter, very creamy...yes, like everybody, one day, i want to retry it in Ireland but, for now, remains a good drink.
