Can. Pour beautifully, with wonderful nitro action, good head. Nose has very supple chocolate notes. Creamy mouthfeel, tobacco notes, roasted notes into the finish. This is a really good everyday beer - maybe Iíll replace my daily green tea with it.

17Beer (158) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 13, 2015
Aromas of chocolate, chalk and coffee. Out of a can into a pint glass. Pours an opaque dark brown with a thick tan head with tight carbonation. Understated tastes witha creamy texture and a chalky finish. Not distinctive and it doesnít improve through the glass. (Iíve had better on tap) Itíll do if you canít find another stout and donít feel like any other style.

Aromat karmelowo-czekoladowy, w smaku lekkie, mleczne i bardzo przyjemne. Niegazowane. Piana delikatna i pozostająca na szklance.

I poured it from the can into a glass. It pours very nicely with a fluffy off-white head and nice lacing. It pours an opaque black color. The aroma is roasty, coffee, and some chocolate. The taste is roasted coffee and chocolate. Itís very creamy with some roasty bitterness. This is a simple but excellent stout.
