Kobal (64) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Pours black with little head; head doesn’t linger or cling. Nose is umami and slightly salty. Body is somewhat light for the style. Taste is mild roasted nuttiness, a touch of umami saltiness with underlying notes of chocolate and a hint of banana.

ejr (54) - Sarpsborg, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2014
Mørk, mørk brun med et off white skum, skummet var tykt og holdt bra. Maltete aroma med innslag av karamell, mørk frukt og sjokolade. Smaken følger aroma med røstet malt, karamell, mørk frukt og hint av sjokolade. Litt tynn munnfølelse.

Light brown headed dark brown beer with a a coffee aroma. Tastes sweet with a hint of bitterness. Texture is oily with a medium body and an avarage carbonation. I definitely like it.

Lele (84) - ITALY - JUN 21, 2014
Ottimo esempio di stout, anzi, di oyster stout. Non è stata fatta con l’utilizza di vere ostriche, ma sono riusciti a riprodurre le caratteristiche organolettiche di un’autentica oyster stout, e a produrre così un ottimo risultato. Percepibile quindi anche un po’ di salato che, abbinato alle classiche note di tostato, caffè e cioccolato, la rendono una splendida stout che trova il suo coronamento ovviamente se degustata insieme a delle ostriche.

LasseVPedersen (205) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2014
Can, 50cl. Pours deep brownish black colour with a stable, creamy one-finger beige head. Aroma is Coffee-like, roasted malt along some fruity notes and chocolate. Flavour is very alike, mostly dark roasted malt, medium sweetness, slight burnt, decent bitter chocolate aftertaste. Very smooth palate, light-medium body and soft carbonation. Quite good, bit too light bodied to be really good though.

aleksander9 (366) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2014
Black with creamy yellow head. Aroma is coffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate, syrup and cappuccino. Smooth and creamy palate. Aftertaste is round, roasted, some burnt notes and floral. Overall: nice. Maybe a little weak in aroma and aftertaste.

MrHangover (2449) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 13, 2014
Can 500ml. Pours a black beer with a medium sized beige creamy head on top. Aroma is milky, salty, coffee and some roast. Flavor is medium sweet, some coffee and caramel with a medium salty touch in the back. Big, rich malty tones overall. Quite OK beer, nothing too impressive.

Botella de 50 cl de el c. Ingles. Lote 1334 hasta 30-12-2012. Tomada en octubre de 2012. color negro con espuma beige. Aromas y sabores de maltas tostadas con toques de café y algo de chocolate. Cuerpo ligero a medio con 4.5 vol. Se bebe sin problemas, tal vez algo liquida y sin cuerpo. Se podría repetir.
