From a bottle. Pours jet black with a thin tan head, coffee aroma, smooth with rich roasted flavours and an almost sweet aftertaste. A very drinkable stout.

12 oz bottle. Pours black with tall, long lasting, creamy, beige head and nice lacing. Aroma is of bready malt, toast, dark fruit, coffee and brown sugar. Body is medium, creamy and smooth. Taste is of toasted malt, coffee, chocolate, brown sugar, dark fruit and herbal hops. Finish is long and dry. On a sweet side but tasty brew.

Cola coloured pour with a thin tan head that quickly fades. Roasty, chocolate and coffee aromas. Taste is cocoa, coffee, roast, dry, a little coffee bitterness. Tasty

Wolfenkopf (177) - Villa Park, Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2015
This has a mild chocolate and coffee aroma. Faint, yet defined. The brew would need aircraft landing lights to let anyone see through it, much like its big brother, "Old Rasputin". The taste is of chocolate, coffee and malt. It’s quite good. The palate is smacked with a bit of carbonation, but the feel is lightly oily. At just over 6% ABV, this is a winner for stout lovers.

AlutisLt (56) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - MAR 2, 2015
Gana vandeningas ir nelabai išraiškingas stoutas. Alkoholis tik gelbėja padėtį. Gan įdomiai išsireiškia...

jdjuice (398) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - MAR 1, 2015
Pours deep amber black with big tan head. In an age of coffee and chocolate adjuncted stouts, this is an excellent example of a delicious yet traditional stout.

This is an ok stout. This one looks better then it tastes as it’s very carbonated.
