AWISLguy (1294) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 19, 2014
650ml bottle from Woodmans in Waukesha. Pours a very dark brown with a spongey light brown head leaving nice streaks of lace. Aroma has sweet malts, chocolate and fruits in a nice blend. Taste is of sweet caramelly malts, dark chocolate, pitted dark fruits and some herbs. Solid, tangy and slightly alcoholly. Medium to full bodied. Finishes sweetly bitter with some length. Solid tasty offering.

lukedarock (163) - Howell, Michigan, USA - JAN 14, 2014
Smelt a lot better than I thought it would and looked equally as good, taste was balanced with the sweet chocolate and malt but with a slightly bitter ending, a refreshing stout that I would enjoy at any time for a decent price!

Vanz (189) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 11, 2014
Not a fan at all, not a very well balanced beer. Not very much hop character to balance the sweetness, a lot of alcoholic flavours dominating.

curepute (139) - New York, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Black with creamy tan head. Big toasted malt nose, coffee, dark chocolate, amazing. Very smooth on the palate (surprisingly after that gorgeous nose), coffee, creamy milk chocolate, medium burnt toast, a squeeze of lemon, champagne carbonation that fits in well. Finish towards a nice hop kick and mellows out again. Nice and dry, not too sweet, complex.
