WYGLĄD: Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzyste. Piana drobna, średniej wysokości, oblepia szkło.
AROMAT: Intensywny. Bardzo bogaty aromat. Jest paloność, delikatna wędzoność, są owoce (rodzynki, wędzona śliwka), czekolada i kawa. Fajna zbożowość.
SMAK: Owoce, czekolada, słodowość i kawa. Na finiszu kawa. Znakomicie pijalne. Goryczka średnia - kawowa.
OGÓLNIE: Brak mi słów, żeby opisać to piwo. Po prostu trzeba je spróbować.

Bottle from Tanakaya. Deep black with a short-lived soapy tan head. Aromas of coffee, dark cherries, roasted grains and vanilla. Silky smooth on the palate with bitter and tart flavors working well together. As it warms up more of the tartness shows. The oats really give it a creamy, velvety mouthfeel. Great long and lingering dry bitter finish.

(06/05/2015). On tap at the BeerTemple. Black with a small tan head. Aroma of damp basement, roasted malts, hint of chocolate. Taste is sweet with bitter coffee and chocolate, bitter almost hoppy ending with a hint of chocolate in there. Long dark chocolate aftertaste. Bottle was a lot better, maybe something went wrong here... 6/4/8/3/14

Pitch black color. Big espresso notes, dark cherries, caramel and excellent roastiness. The mouth is flawless with the roasted malt smoothly blending in with the coffee notes. Very smooth. Long lingering finish moderate bitterness and espresso notes.

On tap at Solijca bar in Belgrade-Serbia. Pours oil bleach with a brownish little foam which lowers fast, leaves lacing and drafts. Nose: licorice, coffee, grass. In the bouts the hops bitter this stout making it very drinkable. Carbonation is medium, coffee is hidden.

Black. Tan head. Bitterness from the coffee. Texture gets thickness in the oatmeal. Great balance. Gets better as it warms.
