Bottle at home. Pours dark with an off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, toffee, bit metallic, hint of chocolate and coffee. Taste is sweet, roasted malts, bit of a metallic undertone. Slightly roasted bitter aftertaste.

An ok beer. Enjoy the flavour profile but the body is a bit thin to compliment. On the plus side ots very refreshing for a stout, on the down side its a bit underwhelming

30cl flesje via biergaarde.nl Alcoholpercentage van 5,5% Uitgeschonken in La Trappe glas Uiterlijk: zwart met kleine cremekleurige kraag Aroma en smaak: noten, gebrande koffie, chocolade, flink bitter Conclusie: veel smaak voor een stout met dit alcoholpercentage, vooral de bitterheid blijft lang hangen. Weer een lekker bier van Jopen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Almost black beer with a nice beige head. Taste is espresso coffee, chocolate and roasted malt. Tasteful beer with only 5.5% alc.

thirstyrabbit (1157) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 24, 2014
Bottle. Dark body, medium tall rocky head. Mildly roasty aroma with some ashiness. Dry and uncomplex roasty taste, close to Guinness and other similar session stouts. Maybe slightly sweeter but just as thin. Far from justifying the 3 EUR price, this is actually a rip off.

koshack (207) - 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 (369) - 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 (892) - 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.

Marduk (2990) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 21, 2014
330ml bottle. Very dark brown color. Tiny size, white head, stays. Malty, raisins, sweet, caramel in aroma. Malty, roast, bit of yeast, slight ashyness in taste. Dry mouthfeel. Tender hops in aftertaste. Soft carbonation.
