Pint fra flaske. Moderat maltduft, med tydelig kaffe, brændt malt, nøddet, kandissødme, humlen er let til stede ved grapefrugt og urter, også nogen jordet gærduft. Skummende, meget cremet, råhvid skumkrone, som er længe om at forsvinde og efterlader gode blonder. Næsten kulsort krop. Smagen stemmer okay i overenstemmelse med duften. Startende nogen sødme og nogen bitterhed. Afslutningsvis nogen sødme og moderat bitterhed, samt startende surhed. Let til medium krop med tør tekstur, blød kulsyre og moderat alkoholisk. En dejlig traditionel eksport stout, med gode kaffenoter og brændte malte.

Can. Black. Not too much head. Super boozey nose. Somewhat thinnish body. Very apparent ABV -- tastes barrel aged? A bit unbalanced.

Can 0,5l from Sri Lanka, many thanks to my sister Eva. Black colored beer. Aroma of apples, plum jam, plum liquer, many tones of chocolate, roasted malt, alcohol. Similar taste- fruitiness, chocolate, roasted grains, alcohol, sweet, full bodied.
Really not bad, but it isn’t exactly my style.

Ascelja (213) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 11, 2015
Can 0,5l. Black coloured body, high brown head. Aroma of dark fruits, plums, plum jam, apples, licorice, raisins, liqueur, really sour (burned sourness). Taste is sweet and little bit bitter, but sourness dissapeared (or it’s too sweet, I can’t recognize sourness). Full body, medium carbonation.
Interesting foreign stout, but little unbalanced.

11.2 z to glass,short lived small light brown head with a few legs , black in color with ample amount of floaties, even after gently opening this bottle conditioned beer.Aroma of alcohol,burnt, cherries,& chocolate.Medium mouth feel but a bit thin for a Foreign Stout, a bit sweet but not over the top, good bitter finish of average length. A good beer, just not a good Foreign.

Bottle 0.33l bought at Metro c&c Rijeka. Dark brown liquid with big tan head. Full body, light to medium carbonation. Cherry aroma. Medium sweetness, a bit alcoholy. Taste of cocoa. Reminds me of Ferrero Mon Cheri, chocolate, cherries and alcohol. Interesting.

Bottle from Carwyn Cellars. Pours deep dark brown with a tan head and fades slowly to lacing. Roasty aromas of chocolate, cocoa, espresso. Taste is chocolate forward, earthy hop bitterness. Slight alcohol warming. Smooth. Medium-low carbonation. Excellent
