koshack (167) - Gdańsk, POLAND - NOV 6, 2014
Piana drobna, kremowa, ładnie ozdobiła szkło. Kolor czarny, nieprzejrzysty. Aromat - ciemne słody, gorzka kawa. Po ogrzaniu pojawiają się nuty likierowe. W smaku spora goryczka, po trochu od ciemnych słodów i chmielu. Paloność. Lekko ściągające, ale nie pozostawia posmaku. Piwo wytrawne, słodycz praktycznie niewyczuwalna. Pijalne.

Kauge (247) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 30, 2014
Bottle from Drink Shop in Tallinn (€ 2,92). BB 03/06/2015. Pours black with a light tan head that retains and laces nicely. Nose is sweet of toffee and liquorice, some dry ashiness and roasted malts, faint chocolaty notes when warm. Taste is roasty and ashy malts, less sweet than aroma, some weak bitterness there too. Medium body, soft and smooth palate with a dry roasty-malty graininess and light dry-bitter-roasty finish. Mild carbonation but sharp when swallowing, softening later. Quite nice. Bit too safe and forgettable though...

WVHouseofBeer (868) - Kissimmee, Florida, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Wonderful aromas of chocolate and roasted malt. Tastes are more of the same but not as pronounced as the aroma. Leaves some lacing. Medium bodied and a little creamy. I really liked this beer a lot, very nice.

Pringao_Toribi (270) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 18, 2014
In short: sweet chocolate and coffee beer. Aroma is kind of earthy, taste with a great smooth feeling of mocha, palate is a little sour.

adamnowek (188) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2014
Dark, dark, dark. Smell of roasted malt is quite prominent. On the tongue, this beer is immediately quite bitter mixed with coffee, evening out at a certain point but without any sweetness. Too carbonated for my liking.

didierlewallon (123) - ponferrada, SPAIN - SEP 27, 2014
Esta cerveza es prácticamente negra, tiene una espuma de color café. Un aroma a malta oscura, a pan tostado y a chocolate. Cremosa y muy agradable de beber.

jamesie1857 (1458) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2014
On keg at Jopenkerk Haarlem - Black body, with creamy beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, a bit sweet, milky chocolate, leather. Taste begins is quite bitter, with lots of coffee, less chocolate, roasted malts. Bitter on the aftertaste too with good duration. Average carbonation, medium thin body, very dry on the palate. Overall a decent stout. Favourite of the night to this point.

fkoolen (342) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle at home. Nicely deep dark brown beer with a firm beige foamy head. Roasted malts dominate nose and taste, bitter, dark chocolate, mocha, a bit smoky and some vanilla. Dry aftertaste, lingering bitter chocolate. Prickling carbonation and mouthfeel, light body.
