330ml bottle as from an off license in London. Pours back with nice tan head. Aroma is toffee. Taste is bitter liquorice, coffee, a little tobacco.. would’ve preferred a bit more sweetness really.

Dark black ruby with light brown lacing lasting foam head. Nice strong bitter coffee aroma, therefor bit disappointing taste, little weak. Nice coffee aftertaste. Good beer. (Velp 201412)

A great stout. I can hardly wait for my next bottle to fill a tall and frosty glass. :-)

Deep dark brown colour, huge creamy brown head, which lasts for several minutes; aroma of vanilla, mild roasted coffee, chocolate, herbal liqueur notes and hints of alcohol; taste is the same - excellent stout; it is life saving after a lot of industrial lagers I have tasted in the last couple of days

Nice smooth body, although its kind of light for a stout. Rich espresso/mocha flavors are really highlighted by a bottle-conditioned twang. Is there some vanilla in there? Remarkably drinkable for a stout with such a high alcohol content at 8.0%. Everytime I drink it, I’m impressed all over again. I’m going to say it: this is the best stout I’ve ever had.

Beautiful thick dark and syrupy, with a lively fizz for a stout.
It’s full and long on the tongue. With a medium sweetness and medium bitter taste.
Very tasty and would definitely buy again!

Bottle, picked up in an Indian food shop in Geneva. Pretty black, big beige head. Massive up front roastiness, with a delicious heavy sweet powerful roasty character. Fades to a more traditional coffee bitter drier finish. Full of flavour and very drinkable. Good label too.

Poured into a english pint a dark brown with thick mo a head. Aroma was dark chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla, some dark fruits and a little alcohol. Taste was the same with a small smoky note and the alcohol is masked in taste. Finish is a little burnt malt. Very nice, and surprising as I have passed this up many times just based on the cheap generic looking case it comes in.

Flaske, 33 cl. Brun-sort med et ok beige skum. En gammel kending. 5 år siden sidst? Sød konserveret mørk frugt, molasse, chokolade. Ristet malt, lakrids. Soyasauce. Flydende dessert. Fedladen tekstur, men lidt vandig i smagen. Ikke helt så god som jeg huskede den...
