mile (2992) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle. Very dark brown, average and mostly diminishing dark brown head. Moderate to full, malty and sweetish aroma, faint roasted malt, light coffee and faint salty licorice. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish flavor, faint roasted malt and light coffee, faint alcohol. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, faint roasted malt and light coffee with light licorice, light alcohol. Way too sweet stout for me - could really use some bitterness. Donít believe the hype.

17 oz can. Pours opaque black with a tan head. Coffee and molasses aroma with some fruit. A bit nutty, coffee, cocoa. Easy drinking for such a high ABV.

Thus is a very good stout. Traditional, but very high abv which is masked. Chocolate and coffee, what you would expect from a stout.

The brew pours black with a frothy, dark brown head that had some lacing. The is an aroma of coffee and raisins. There is a bit of chocolate and other sweet, fruit like smells. It has a rich, smooth coffee taste with some sweet tastes with a bit of a bitter ring on the palate.

Black, with a nice big mocha head. Aroma of roast, bitter chocolate, and some raisins. Taste roasty, medium bodied, with a sweet mid-palate, and a dry ending. Hides the alcohol really well. Nice and easy drinking.

Melker (206) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2014
After two months of not so very interesting asian lager beers daily itís fucking fantastic to have this poured into a glass after a surfsession in the Indian ocean. Aroma of milk chocolate, roasted malt, licorice. Taste of bitter coffee, dark chocolate. Medium sweetness, light bitterness, long aftertaste.

wimpyjoe (3908) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle. Black, no head. Heavy textured stout with a dreary roasted and sweet malt character.

BrewBoxer (2005) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark black color with a huge head that fades over time and lasts with a nice light coffee color. Taste is chocolate, coffee notes. Crisp and slight hoppy like a porter but definitely a stout at the finish. Pretty goo surprisingly but I dont get the 99 rating as well

CanCrusher (642) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - MAY 24, 2014
Bottle 0,33L. Black colour with creamy, light brown, long lasting head with excellent lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, strong coffee and caramel. Taste starts light sweet with cocoa and coffee, than turns to moderate bitter finish with long lasting aftertaste. Full bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation, alcohol is very well hidden. Excellent stout, nice surprise. Didnít expect that good beer.
