Smooth coffee like aroma. Appearance is jet black with a large tan head with good retention. Flavor has notes of mild coffee with large amounts of fruity esters. Roast dries out the beer and is smooth at the same time. Mouthfeel is medium with a high level of carbonation. Overall, it's a solid dry stout. The only fault is that the carbonation is too high. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at ABV Pub in Hillsboro, OR. Pours black with a small head. Aroma of dark chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is dry, as appropriate, but not harshly so. Pleasant dark chocolate and roasted malt flavor. Medium mouthfeel. Easy to drink and delicious.

tomer (2028) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - OCT 3, 2009
0.33L bottle, small head that dissapears very quickly. uniform opaque black colour, aroma of charred wood, dark chocolate and whiffs of smoke, charred wood dominates the flavour with hints of dried fruits and dark bread, almost completely dry. feels quite fat and silky, long bitter aftertaste. Quite impressive.

Courtesy of DSG, thanks Barak!!!
The beer in the glass is opaque black with a beautiful brown and creamy head. The smell is sour malty, bitter, with strong coffee-notes. The beer starts very malty, creamy, mild, with strong notes of roasted coffe. The center part is considerably milder and the sourness comes through a little better, coupled with a good yeast aroma. Goes in a roasted malty finish, slightly tart, with strong aromas of coffee and chocolate!

Surprisingly solid stout. Pours a pure black with a thin beige head. The nose is sweet and robust with dark choc and oat notes. Nice heavy and robust flavour. Good bitter finish.

Pours a deep black with a medium brown head. Aroma of dark roasted caramel malt, cacao with some mild dark fruit notes. Taste is of sweet dark roasted caramel malt, cacao and some espresso notes. Palate is a medium body, slight creamy mouth feel with good carbonation. Finish is a flavorful dark roasted caramel and chocolate malt some distant dark fruit and mild liquorice notes ending with a moderate bitter dry roasted malt and espresso flavor. A very nice tasty brew.

Jabic (431) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - DEC 6, 2013
Ar: Sharp roasted malt, char - some burnt coffee, and cocoa powder. Ap: Dark brown, opaque - small mocha head with medium-low retention - leaves a thing ring of foam with a film of bubbles. T: Lots of charcoal and burnt coffee up front, and semi-sweet - medium-high bitterness with a herbal note - cocoa powder and coffee on the finish. P: Medium body with high carbonation - finish is dry. O: Tasty dry Irish stout - very true to style, bold and sharply roasty without becoming acrid, and a firm bitterness.
