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 (209) - 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 (772) - - 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.

mathieuc (3391) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 11, 2016
Bottle at Pub Edward, BB February 2016... Pours a good black or maybe a very dark brown with a medium beige/tan head that leaves good lacing. A few yeast rafts/particles. Nose is of roasted malt and slight ash. Taste is lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Chocolate and mocha indeed with some ash again. Some grapiness. Body is medium, carbonation moderately high. Pretty smooth. Some alcohol but nothing bad. A good foreign extra stout but not quite as good as I thought it would be? A bit old perhaps...

Flavour if roasted malt, smoke, chocolate, liquorice, some hoppy herbal notes, bitter backbone. Medium roasted finish, bitter and dry. Full body and medium carbo.

Svarun (116) - - FEB 20, 2016
Pitch black. Average sized brown head. Aroma of bourbon, coffee, dark chocolate. Very heavy and roasty with serious amount of bitterness. Alcohol can be tasted for sure. Almost up to imperial stout standards.
