Dark brown with minimal foam. Aroma is dark roasted malt. Taste is sort of a coarse roasty malt. A little woody maybe. Enjoyable.

Tap (Szynkarnia, Wroclaw). Leciutko czekoladowe, subtelnie palone, lekkie w odczuciu nawet w strone wodnistego, pijalne. Liczylem na olej a dostalem wode.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2016 Aroma estigante, aparência singular, parece mesmo óleo de motor. Sabor amargo do malte tostado e um paladar sensacional.

Omems (12) - New York, USA - JUN 7, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2015 Draught, tapped a week ago. A great example of a stout. Has the smokiness and sweetness that first turned me on to stouts via Guiness. Wouldn?t mind seeing it served with nitrogen, but it has a good thickness with regular C02.

jbruner (3987) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Cask sampled at ACAT 2015. Pours a thick black with a small, lasting tan head and light lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate and cocoa notes and a slight oaked note on the back end. Floral hop flavor up front, followed immediately by the maltiness described in the smell. It is well balanced and complex.
