kamillozo (110) - POLAND - JAN 8, 2016
Butelka 0,33. Piwo barwy czarnej, nieprzejrzyste. Piana jasnobeżowa, wstępnie wysoka i drobna, redukuje się do skromnej obrączki pozostawiając jedynie łezki na szkle. W aromacie lekka słodycz (karmel, czekolada), palone słody, kawa. W smaku średnio pełne, dość wytrawne, palone, może nawet ciut popiołowe, z lekką kawowo - paloną kwaśnością przełamaną czekoladową słodyczą. Posmak kawowy, palony. Goryczka niska, palona. Wstępnie przeszkadza zbyt wysokie nagazowanie mocno odczuwane na języku.

Marek13 (272) - Brzesko, POLAND - JAN 7, 2016
Bottle 27.05.16. Slightly aroma of coffee, chocolate and bread. Also peas in a can and little alcohol. Dark brown coloured beer, clear. Beige two fingered head, disappears with no lacing. At tongue strong bite of carbonation. Roasty and medium sweet taste of coffee, dark bread and chocolate. Medium dry and stem bitterness. Nice, little sour aftertaste of coffee and hop. High carbonated, alcohol is perceptible, medium body, thin texture. Not bad, but nothing fancy, also with defects. Low drinkability due to over carbonation.

Butelka. Aromaty kawy, czekolady, słodów ciemnych, palonych. W smaku bardziej (od draught) pełne. W miare słodkie, lekka kwaśność od słodów.

Vinx (105) - ITALY - NOV 30, 2015
Barely perceptible aroma of roasted malts, dark color with a decent beige foam. The taste is spoiled by a strange unpleasant off-flavor that reminds me something sulfuric. Sharp and watery, not so velvety as I expect from a stout, low carbonation. You’d better spend twice its price for a real old fashioned stout instead of wasting your money for such an industrial thing.

Svart med ljusbrunt skum. Doftar och smakar rökigt och lite choklad. Väldigt blaskig

llucmaduell (145) - barcelona, SPAIN - NOV 25, 2015
Without expecting anything, I was surprised by his consistency. I looked where he was made .... and Belgium! Now I understand everything. The Guinness you can take is usually made in barcelona spain and its quality is like the vast majority of Spanish beer, ominous. This at least holds. Dear Belgians !!
