My interpretation of an Irish stout, with an extra portion of choice barley, special and aromatic malts to give the beer its distinctive full-bodied flavor. A robust beer of deep, dark color with an aroma of roasted malt combined with the taste of sweet caramel, delicious dark chocolate notes and a hint of wild berries.

Sit back and enjoy a firework of flavors and aroma.

Chocolate is strong on the aroma along with some roast malts. Flavor has chocolate on the front also, with some coffee/roasted notes. Easy to drink.

adster (680) - HUNGARY - SEP 24, 2016
Mélybarna, puha habot generáló főzet csokoládészeletes, nápolyis, magvas, diós illatokkal, amolyan lágeres stílusban, egyszerűbbnek ható vonalvezetéssel. Ízvilága hasonlóképpen alakul, az összetevők az édesen pörkölt maláta kissé egyhangú karakterének mondanivalója körül forognak, ostyás, kartonpapíros jegyekkel megspékelve, a sötétebb környezetért kiáltó elemeket légiesen könnyed testbe zárva. Mintha az alkohol lába is kissé kikandikálna, szertelen, de azért szimpatikus az ital.

Rating #2129 - 2015.10.16 - Draught @revolutionyeg - Dark brown pour with a tan head that fades fairly slowly. Mild-medium carbonation. Aroma is cocoa, hint of toffee and roasted malt. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate syrupy sweetness leading to a dry, yet balanced finish. Malty sweetness lingers on the pallet leaving you yearning for another glass. Delightful.

Blueshawk (349) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2016
- schwarzbraune Farbe mit leichter Schaumbildung - schöne, gut wahrnehmbare Aromen nach Röstmalz, Zartbitterschoko- lade, Kaffee, etwas Dörrobst und eine Idee Rauch - passende Carbonisierung - kräftiger Antrunk, versetzt mit dem rauchigen Kaffeegeschmack und einem angenehmen malzigen Unterton - danach gewinnt die Schokolade die Oberhand - der Abgang wird dann von einer leicht bitteren Mokkanote gekrönt Fazit: Mit Abstand das beste Bier von Maisel & Friends. Ein Bockbier mit gelungener Anlehnung an ein Stout.

PabloZab (1143) - Wroclaw, POLAND - JUL 30, 2016
Bottle 0.75l (23.10.2017). Dark brown, clear beer with beige head and nice lacing. Aromat is a bit roasty and chocolate directly after opening the bottle. Next notes of bread and cereal characteristic for bock are on the first plan. Semisweet in taste with notes of bread, cereal, a bit chocolate and roasty in the background. Small alcohol is perceptible and burns a bit in the throat but generally is quite nice. Beer is medium body, average of carbonation, malty but quite drinkable. Generally there is realy good bock with delicate accent of chocolate.

Bottle in Stuttgart,DE. Chocolate, berets, a fine brew. Head died a little early, a touch too sweet for me. I have three more bottles to try out of variety five. I can't wait! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
