Aroma is sweet and chocolaty, body black and oily. More chocolate in the taste, with very mild coffee bitterness. Sweet and slick, goes down easily. Some very mild lingering bittersweet flavor. Worthy of its reputation.

Beautiful looking beer with a nice aroma. Good flavor with a distinct stout flavor. Good.

Alengrin (1296) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
Classic foreign stout brewed at an altitude of 3500 metres, apparently. Thin beige head, nearly black colour. Complex fruity sweetness and caramels, bit chocolatey, with a gentle roasted bitterness in the end; thin but soft mouthfeel. Elegant and ’friendly’ stout.

Bottle in Florida. Roasted mocha stout. Didn’t taste that high abv. Bit sugary for stout, good but not great.

Vlack with la ing tan head. Nice roasted aroma, fruity coffe and chocolate notes. Flavour is similar with a light malty bitterness well balanced with sweetness. Good one.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Taste boozy, chocolate, coffee. I didn't care for this. I wouldn't drink it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle found at Auchan Kirchberg. Deep black colour, lasting head. First taste is fruit like sweetnees, followed by coffee notes and a typical stout finish lasting nicely. A good surprise.

Lisowczyk (48) - POLAND - AUG 16, 2014
Butelka 0,33l Barwa czarna, pływają jasne drobinki. Piana niska, o brązowej barwie, kremowej konsystencji, drobnoziarnista, oblepia szkło. Zapach gorzka czekolada, kawa, odrobina owoców i alkoholu w stylu wiśni w likierze. Smak nuty owocowe (wiśni, śliwki), oraz palony słód z odrobiną popiołu. Lekka kawa i czekolada. Spora goryczka o charakterze palonym. Całość aksamitna, rozgrzewająca, alkohol wyczuwalny w minimalnie.

Bottle at home. Aroma is sweet, nutty, boozy. Taste is bready, malty. Taste us missing something. I find this to be just average at best.
