Puszka. Ciemno brazowe o bezowej kremowej pianie. Aromat karmelu kawy lukrecji. W smaku bardzo wodniste slodkawe karmel kawa i ziemisty posmak na finiszu.

hauxe (173) - Butzbach, GERMANY - JAN 21, 2016
Rated from old notes. From a can. Pours black and creamy into the glass. Light chocolate taste. Light bodied and rathery watery. Unlike many stouts, this one can be quaffed in quantity. Drank many of these back in the day. Passable.

hockey9930 (217) - - JAN 19, 2016
Can on nitro. Black with thick smooth head. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate, roasted malt, and dirt. Very watery. A little vanilla and dark roasted coffee on finish. The palate is thin and watery. Good looking, but taste and texture are lacking.

Nurmis (99) - FINLAND - JAN 4, 2016

asedzie (762) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 24, 2015
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 (137) - 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.
