czlowiekwiadro (246) - POLAND - JUL 19, 2014
przyjemny, kremowy zapach, sporo kawy, karmel, lekka wędzoność. pachnie trochę jak kawowy jogurt. kolor mocno ciemny, prawie czarny, piana dość trwała, bura. w smaku pełne, gorzkie, palone, lekko słodkie, trochę podobne do alkoholowych pralin w czekoladzie. nie czuć dużej ilości alkoholu. ciekawe zdecydowanie.

Bottle from Saveur-Biere - Color: opaque dark black beer with small carbonation and small heavy brown foam. Smell: dark malt, caramel and whisky barrel. Taste: heavy on mouth with sugar taste and dark malt. Aftertaste : sugar cane with caramel and malt good balance of whisky barrel. Really aromatic stout, amazing beer! You have to taste it.

Hanoi (456) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle from Tesco’s (7.7% not the 8.8 listed here). Nose is strongly metallic, some coco, lactose and coffee giving a latte note beneath the metal. Taste is lactose, leading to malt, latte, soft chocolate in a rich smooth finish which hits a slightly thin bump near the end. Mouthfeel is good. It’s a decent high strength stout with a poor nose, but this is a style that in the hands of American’s produces some of the world’s best beers.

shanoknowsfood (53) - Hawaii, USA - JUL 16, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2014 A bit watery with a taste of mocha-coffee infused treacle. Not the worst but not the best. Too weak for what I was expecting.
