Bottle. Black beer with a strongish light brown head. The aroma is lightly roasted, and the flavour is quite mild with a sweet malty'ness and a hint of milky chocolatyness . Overall a nice gentle sweet stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gegwilson (983) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle from Vesuvio, Darlington. Pours black with a quickly fading tan head. Pretty thin tasting with some decent coffee notes and a fair bit of sweetness. A bit too carbonated too. An OK stout.

Opaque, dark brown with a coffee foam. Nice dark chocolate aroma, coffee bitternes and some lacto stint. Hint of roasted malt, some chocolate, not much more. Lacto comes in the aftertaste. Lively beer, pretty slim.

angel77 (800) - oviedo, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2014
Botella de 33 cl en el lúpulo en el momento el 08-06-2014. Color negro intenso con espuma beige bastante oscura. Aromas y sabores suaves y finos, maltas tostadas con toques de café y sobretodo cacao con cierto dulzor aportado por la lactosa. Cuerpo ligero a medio con 4 vol fácil de beber. Buena con sabores ligeros y bien compensados entre tostados y quemados con los dulces de la lactosa. Para repetir.

Color and aroma are everything you would expect from a stout. Way too much carbonation for a stout, pretty dry on the palate. Slightly sweet, coffee flavor in the after taste. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

Rich aroma, malty and maybe vaguely soy saucey. Dark appearance, tan head. Quite a rich taste too, a bit burned perhaps almost Marmite-y, quite sweet as you’d expect. Fizzy for a stout, bitter on the palate. Quite nice overall!

Beese (1540) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2014
Bottle at the Euston Tap, London on 2 May. Poured a really dark brown; close to black, with a dense beige head. Aroma of dark fruits, creamy milk and cocoa. Initial flavours were a little on the sweet side; some fruit cake, chocolate and chewy malt. Finish was toasted malt, tobacco and sticky fruit.

worldbeertaste (1609) - AUSTRIA - MAY 3, 2014
Dark brown with a red tint and a frothy, lacy, lasting, beige head. Smells of deep malt, chocolate, caramel, grain, cedar and vanilla. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Tastes of sweet malt, with nice roast and coffee bitter balancing it out. Figs and cacao. And a slightly metallic finish. A nice enjoyable stout

Mildly pleasant aroma of chocolate and nuts. Really dark, black colour. Where some are deep red this is pure black. Very flight had. Beige colour head. Tastes like liquid coffee chocolate. Not as strong as I would have thought. Bit too fizzy. First Japanese porter though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
