Malziger, milder weicher Röstantrunk. Süffig, angesichts des Stils und Alkoholgehalts ungewöhnlich. Malzig herber Mittelteil, Andeutungen des Alkoholgehalts, leicht holzig. Gut. 12/10/11/11/11/11

Gentle_Ben (37) - Rutland, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2016
Black with a red/tan head. Nose is malt, chocolate and well complimented with bitter hops. The taste is nicely complex although the alcohol is to the fore which detracts from the pleasant malty base. Dark sugars, chocolate and raisins are lifted by a nice hoppy finish. Pleasant enough but surprisingly alcoholic for the relatively tame ABV.

szymonskc (364) - Skórcz, POLAND - MAR 6, 2016
Aromat intensywny, gorzka czekolada, kakao, kawa, paloność, czekoladki z alkoholem, ciemne owoce. Kolor czarny, nieprzejrzyste. Piana niska, drobno i średniopęcherzykowa, niezbyt trwała, delikatny lacing. W smaku pełne, gęste, masa kawy, czekolady i ciemnych owoców. Przyjemna paloność, wszystko świetnie ze sobą współgra. Alkohol ukryty znakomicie, goryczka średnia, czekoladowa. Wysycenie średnie. Piwo świetne, znakomicie ułożone, pycha.

Drank in a pint glass, poured from a large bottle. Thank you Danny! Good overall stout but the abv leads to an alcohol flavor that is not great.

ogniskowicz (636) - POLAND - FEB 8, 2016
Niesamowity aromat palonych słodów, kawy i bardzo gorzkiej czekolady, połączony z akcentami, których bym się w ogóle nieleżakowanym piwie nie spodziewał: lekkiego muśnięcia drewnem, wanilią i whisky. Jest zdecydowanie agresywnie, alkoholowo (wręcz nachalnie), ale cały urok polega na tym, że ... to po prostu urzeka. W smaku potężnie, body ogromne, piwo wygrzewa przełyk, pojawiają się nuty burbonowe, likierowe, do tego spora dawka drewna (coś jak stara szafa :)) i .. . słonych przekąsek. Goryczka średnia, bebechy rozgrzewane są z każdym łykiem. Po przedrostku oatmeal spodziewałem się jakiejś gładkiej czekoladki, a dostałem nachalnego, szorstkiego, ale fascynującego potwora. Pyszne !
