Lambister (180) - - NOV 16, 2012
50 cl bottle. Clear, dark brown colour with a dense medium-sized tanned foamy head. Roasted malty aroma with notes of chocolate. Moderately roasty bitter flavour, light bodied with a slightly sharp carbonation. Quite slim, roasty bitter finish. Light-bodied but still tasty.

Magela (52) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - APR 10, 2014
Aroma de café. No sabor, a mescla de café com baunilha dá à cerveja um sabor suave com toque aveludado. Final seco, mas com boa drinkability.

Very dark red, almost black with a thick fine beige head. Aroma is black fruits, roasted malts with a light metallic notes. Taste is very rich with toasted malts again, coffee powder, some chocolate and a light sourness in the finish.

Satyroneto (59) - - MAR 10, 2014
Cor negra com espuma bege de média/alta formação e alta persistência; lacing razoável; Aroma leve de pão e torrado; Sabor de início, meio e fim de torrado com retrogosto torrado e um pouco amargo; corpo leve, muito leve com baixa carbonatação. Um lixo! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mgajdaczewa (297) - Katowice, POLAND - FEB 25, 2014
Fajny Stout, który okazał się być lagerem. W aromacie dużo gorzkiej czekolady, lekka kawowość, kakao, klasycznie, ale przyjemnie. W smaku wytrawne, wyraźnie palone, spora kwaskowość od ciemnych słodów, gładkie i niezwykle pijalne. Solidne, wręcz nudnawe.

thirstyrabbit (998) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 25, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown body, small beige head. Weak aroma with pleasant warm roast. Mildly ashy roasty taste - indeed a Schwartzbier. Sourish finish with some roasted almonds. A good drinking beer but nothing outstanding. Carbonation is a bit too high - or maybe it’s the beer’s sourness that amplifies the existing CO2 sourness.

Ragnampiza (215) - ITALY - FEB 14, 2014
500 ml bottle from beer-shop.it served in a shaker glass. Dark ruby red with some purple-ish tinges, perfectly clear, and a minuscle light beige head which fizzed away immediately. Not really poweful aroma of roasted malts, black watered down coffee, cocoa powder, and grassy/herbal notes. Exactly the same impressions in the taste, but more sweet and astringent than expected, with a light mineral/metallic presence. Way over carbonated, even for a true schwarz. Light to medium body and oily texture. So so, just above average. Wouldn’t seek again to be honest.

On tap @Lúpulo Feroz, Oviedo. 8-2-2014.
Courtesy of Andrés Lúpulo.
In short: a correct dry stout.
Pours very dark wiht nice off white head. Some head retention, poor lacing. Roasty, coffee, liquorice aromas. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Taste is roasty, coffee, liquorice. Quite dry finish and aftertaste. Enjoyable.

angel77 (511) - oviedo, SPAIN - FEB 10, 2014
Caña en el lúpulo 09_02-2014. en el momento. cuerpo ligero y color negro con espuma beige poco persistente. Sabores ligeros a chocolate, algo de regaliz y final amargo contenido un poco apreciable. Una stout suave y ligera algo mas lupulada, con ligeros toques quemados al final, cuando calienta, y que se bebe bien.

AdiBeer (591) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2014
Aroma: coffee, toasted malts, some smoke. Appearance: dark brown/black, small brown head. Taste: light bitter and sweets. Palate: long dry bitterness, low carbonation. Overall: OK Stout, bit funny aroma - not the nicest example. Pint at The Greenwich Union, London.

martjoobolut (338) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 3, 2014
0,5L bottle. Pours clear dark brown with ruby highlights. The small tan head doesn’t stay. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, sweetness, and roast. Taste is sweet, caramel, malt, slight sourness. Finish is slightly roasted with some sourness and watery notes in the background. Overall: decent beer, but not really exciting.
