Dark brown color with beige head. Aroma coffee, caramel, toffee. Taste is sweet with a roasty touch. Very well balanced, so it’s smooth to drink. Coffeelike finish. Very good stout, one of my favourites.

Hidden_Pooch (518) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - APR 23, 2016
Unexpected greatness from a 24 pack. Pours black with a big creamy tan head. Aroma is of roasted barley, coffee, chocolate, and dark fruit. Tastes of dark chocolate, roasted barley, espresso with a sourness and burnt notes. This beer was so smooth with a slick medium body and low carbonation. Good at hiding its alcohol and very warming.

artemb (663) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - APR 21, 2016
Look: black with dark unstable head. Aroma: strong coffee, molasses. Taste: light to moderate sweet with light hoppy bitterness. Overcarbonated like a Coke. Flavour: strong coffee, chocolate, sweet wine, some grassy hops, prominent alcohol. Not bad but too much CO2.

procraste (472) - FRANCE - APR 20, 2016
Alors ça fait un peu peur, avec cette étiquette qui fait un rien penser à une bière exotique de piètre qualité ... Mais en fait c’est vraiment très bon et solide, surtout pour le prix ! Plus de fruits confits que de café chocolat ici ... Même si on a tout l’attirail d’un bon stout pas trop épais ...

Brewhemia (193) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 3, 2016
Dark brown/black with thick light brown head that stays for quite som time. Light sweet aroma of chokolade milk and a faint smokiness. I also pick up on some mild fruitiness and pear and melon comes to mind as well as dried fruits like dates and raisins. The taste is salty and subtle sweetness and quite some bitterness to balance. The finish has some smokiness to it. Don’t think I’ve had a stout similar to these proportions i taste balance before. I like it nad understand why Michael Jackson loved it.

Cimbasso (741) - - MAR 30, 2016
Sampled from an imported bottle. Black with a tan head. One is assaulted by a very medicinal aroma and initial taste. Very antiseptic, like TCP. There are roasted malt flavours and lots of ash and smoke along with a taste of vine fruits. Rich mouthfeel and a nice bitter finish, with flavoursome, earthy hops. An interesting and well made stout.
