StoutHead (864) - - DEC 11, 2013
2013 bottle. Pours deep red with a fine lacing beige head. Taste is sweet and of roasted malt, coffee, aniseed and other spices. Aftertaste is like the taste but has a bitter hoppy aftertaste with hints of soy. Medium body. Very drinkable and quite good.

anstei (348) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAY 23, 2015
500ml bottle. Pours pitch black in this low light while wathing the ESC... Interesting aroma... Like the dough of sour bread, a bit like Guiness. Sour fizziness. Not outstanding though.

BrianWillum (222) - København S., DENMARK - MAR 18, 2015
Served on bottle. Stored for 4 months, in fridge for 24 hours. Black beer with a big light brown head, that stays for a long time. Aroma consists of liqourice, raisins, roasted malt. Taste is a good balance between sweet an bitter with a tend to the bitterness, which is fine in this case. Aftertaste shows a little bit of alcohol, though.

McNeillR (1778) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2015
Light brown, hazy enough and a visible carbonation aided head. Greasy fennel and liquorice party, up front unrestricted spices. Taste is unsurprisingly fainter, lean bitterness and cooling roast and spicy carbonation. Finishes greases spice and tinny roast linger.
