At Bishops Arms. Pours black with a nice brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, dark chocolate vanilla and a little liquorice. The flavour is also roasted malt but with lots of dark chocolate, a little liquorice and a little caramel. It has a dark and slightly bitter after taste.

Med en lång eftersmak, närmast fodrad i sin karaktär, mjuk och ullig och med en härlig syrlighet, är Kosacken en välkomponerad stout, utan att överväldiga eller slå en med häpnad.
