(Bottle) Black colour with creamy, pale brown head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of black coffee, liquorice, burnt sugar, dark chocolate and hints of soy sauce. Malty, roasted taste with strong black coffee, liquorice, spy sauce, burnt sugar, a touch of tar and a roasted coffee bitterness in the finish. Medium body, smooth and velvety mouthfeel. A certain sweetness shining through. Well made and tasty stout. Very nice.

pivnizub (9000) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - DEC 6, 2013
Bottle(@Kris Wines):Very, very deep brown coloured with a small and stable tanned head, moderate dry coffeish nose, completed by dried fruits, dark malt and a tinge of Worchester Sauce; robust dry bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied and astonishingly very soft; lingering sweet-bitter chocolatey and dark-fruity and roasty finish. Great beer… (English beer #500!!!)

Osprey87 (1958) - WALES - SEP 21, 2013
Bottled Aug 2012, 6.8%. Black, not much head forming. Smell is smoke, roasted malts, slightly sweet and chocolatey, toned down hops. Smells very appetising. Mouthfeel is medium, not foamy. Taste is not as good as the smell but it’s still nice - slight smoke, coffee. Overall, a very good beer. Enjoyed.
