McTapps (4314) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 9, 2014
Pours out of the bottle (with many thanks to tomer!) in a deep dark black colour with low creamy head and medium to smooth body. Aroma of malt and chocolate. Taste of rich malt, roasted barley, leaves, dark berries, torf and chocolate. Earthy finsih. Really nice and wonderful quaffable beer. Enjoyed it.

MichaelAwesome (4314) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 15, 2014
Dickes, klassisches Stout mit einem ordentlichen Kracher an dunkler Schokolade, Kaffee und Röstmalzen zum Schluss. Weiterhin nicht mein Stil, daher schwer, gut zu finden. Dass jedoch was hintersteckt, ist jederzeit zu schmecken.

reebtogi (4239) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 19, 2013
330ml bottle pours black in color with a 2 finger light brown head that has decent retention and settles to reveal some decent lacing as well. Aroma is roasted grains and chocolate and hints of coffee. Taste is a roasted grain and coffee bitterness with a dark chocolate malty sweetness. Medium bodied with some light carbonation. A nicely done dry stout with a good balance and surprisingly good.

11.2oz bottle shared by Ed. Ed said he had to blow Santa just to get him to leave this, Santa is his cat..meOWWWWW. Well since I didn’t blow any cats I can rate this with a clear conscience. Poured a medium density pitch black with a smaller begie foamy head. Aroma of sweet dark chocolate, wet burnt toast, soy sauce, dark alcohol dipped cherries, sweet flaovred tobacco. Medium body with lighter carbonation and a quicker fading aftertaste. Flavor is sweet with some dark fruit skins and bad chocolate, burnt malts, burnt toast. a touch of milk also. Solid beer

zvikar (3492) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - JUL 31, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2009 From bottle 33cl, pours total dark quite oily for a stout, has a medium chocolate head that lives a nice lacing, an excellent complex aroma of chocolate, nuts, plums, liquirice and some roasted malt tones, dry on the tongue starts with english smoked flavors, accompanied by dark chocolate, espresso, and finishes bitter with a long bitter sweet aftertaste, texture is medium to full. An impressive stout.

Draft at the bridge. Pours black with a khaki head. A bit of chocolate on the nose. roasts are slightly bigger on the tongue but still feel subdued. Finishes clean. It’s decent but not good.
