Im quite sure this belongs under sweet stout. Pours an opaque black colour with big brown head that slowly turns into a thick ring around the glass leaving little lace. Light aroma consisting of mild roasted grain, faint coffee and sweetness. Flavours are bready, sweet, roasted malts, mild bitterness, a bit watery, mild coffee notes

VamboladeTolly (227) - Tartu, ESTONIA - NOV 29, 2014
Bottle @ Big Ben Pub Tartu. Pours deep brown with medium brownish head. Aroma of roasted malts with light notes of chocolate. Taste of rasted malts, chocolate, hints of coffee.Good beer to drink in the bar but nothing special.

Dzhigga (143) - Kirov, RUSSIA - NOV 23, 2014
Bottle. Almost black color with fluffy fast-disappearing head. Aroma of milk chocolate and fruits. Taste is light sweet, light sour and a little bit bitter. Watery, not rich as it said on the bottle. Aftertaste with some bitterness, but expected more. OK beer.

Vells (744) - Riga, LATVIA - NOV 15, 2014
Smooth – yes, rich – no way. Light roasted malt background, some choco. Feels bit too thin. Quite sweet with very light bitterness. Decent drinkable dark brew, but nothing to remember

Melnis (213) - LATVIA - NOV 14, 2014
Not so bad, expectations over-exceeded by 1cm :D Typical stout with bit oyster (I suppose) aroma, very weak. Decent stout and malt flavor. drinkable

Chopper925 (190) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - NOV 11, 2014
Bottle. Clear but pitch black-brown color, nearly no head. Nose is full of roasty aromas, dominant chocolate. Taste is dominant sour, decent sweetness and light bitter. Thin mouthfeel and very flat carbonation. Aftertaste is some bready, malty notes, but no chocolate.

Stout4stout (20) - neath, WALES - OCT 30, 2014
Disappointing. If I’d bought this as a dark ale I might have enjoyed it a little more - as a ’Stout’ beer it was a let down. Watery, insubstantial, low on flavour. Pretty much the worst stout about?

Bozo_skeleton (568) - Grenoble, FRANCE - OCT 26, 2014
Bien noire, collet moyen de fines bulles, persistant. Aromes un peu faible, chocolat léger. Onctueuse et mince a la fois, un peu fruité derrière le chocolat. Pointe d’iode sur le final.

allmyvinyl (4219) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 25, 2014
500ml bottle from Morrisons, as Marstons Stout. Pours black with a thick tan head. Aromas of light coffee, light chocolate. Taste is more of the same. Pretty thin. Ok.

kevnic2008 (8454) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - OCT 24, 2014
Black in colour with reddish tinge. Very malty, roasty malts, coffee, liquorice. Hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste.
