StueyD (1238) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2014
A black beer with a latte coloured head. A potent aroma of burnt malt elements, nutty, chocolatey, espresso coffee, ripe red fruits and raisiny dried fruit. Rich and full mouthfeel. The taste continues in the same vein as the aroma, mouth-filling dark malt flavours, bitter chocolate, coffee, nutty, then the fruits come through to add a slightly smoother sweetness. The finish is long, lingering and has all the elements from the taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MichaelAwesome (4587) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2014
Mit McTapps geteilt. Sehr speziell, da dick, kräftig, irgendwie voller Kaffee, Malzen und geröstetem Gemüse. Ich bin kein so großer Kaffeefreund und mit Röstungen habe ich dann und wann auch meiner Schwierigkeiten. Ganz ok, aber kein großes Kino.
