Pours ruby-black with a small frothy off-white head. Very nice aroma of light hops, roasted coffee, grain and chocolate. Flavour is predominantly roasted malt followed by some hops. Palate was a little harsh. A very good stout.

bottiglia. Ottima session stout. nGli aromi ci sono tutti caffé cioccolato liquerizia etc. si ripropongono in bocca delicatamente senza affaticare il palato che resta abbastanza pulito grazie a note amare secche. A me piace

MichaelAwesome (5914) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2014
Für ein Stout ungewöhnlich frisch und angenehm in der milden Würze mit ein wenig Pfeffer, etwas Kräutern und angenehm im Malz. Recht einfach zu trinken mit einer feinen Säure zum Schluss hin. Nicht schlecht.

Bottle brought home from England. Pours out in a deep black colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of torf and malt. Taste of torf, malt, nuts, barley, bread, coffee and herbs. Easy drinkable with a dry finish. Enjoyed it.

Coffee, dark chocolate, grains and roasted malts in the aroma. Dark brown with a red tint. Tan head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a average carbonation. Overall not a bad stout, but i would like a little bit less carbonation

Fluxing (561) - POLAND - JUL 30, 2014
Z pompy, One Eyed Rat, Ripon. Kolor ciemnobrunatny, ale nie czarny. Piana niska, kremowa, zostawia gruba obraczke i bardzo mocno oblepia szklo. W aromacie slodkie, kawowe, karmelowe, lekko mleczne, minimalnie lodygowo-owocowe, lekkie sliwki, rodzynki i migdaly. W smaku ogromna pelnia i gladkosc, lekko sliskie, smak to powtorka aromatu, jednak mniej intensywna. Goryczka niska, glownie ziolowa, lekko sciagajaca. Wysycenie bardzo niskie, ledwie wyczuwalne.
