Very dark beer wirh a beige head. Aroma is a malty chocolate smell and the flavour follows suit but with a hoppy edge to it and a smoky finish. But for all that it’s surprisingly light. Very drinkable.

Bottle at #x shitty tasting in Belgrade. Quite black with a lovely foamy tan head. vanilla, slightly medicinal, menthol. Buttery body, dry bitter malt finish. Nice enough aroma then underwhelming body. British alright but not fantastic.

dnicolaescu (1519) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - DEC 23, 2015
BOTTLE 50 CL. Opaque black, medium espresso head. The aroma is complex and bizarre, changing with time and temperature. Starts with something roasted and fresh vegetables - pumpkin, carrots, fresh figs. Some smoked wood and malt sweetness too. As the beer warms up, it gets more winy. The taste seems dry and light-bodied, coffee beans, juts a bit of malt sweetness and winy acidity. The finish shift through coffee, ashes and some hop bitterness. Almost flat carbonation and a smooth body. Simple, yet complex... and well done.

0.5 l bottle from a friend. Colour is dark brown, almost black. Tan head. Aroma has apple juice like flavour. Taste has first apple juice, then engine oil. This is quite dry stout. Very good, but not my favourite beer style.

Bottle. Clear, but pitch black to brown color. Foamy beige head. Roasted cocoa, coffee and chocolate in the nose, could be a bit more intense. Taste is decent dry, heavy bitter. Aftertaste has some roasted malt, nearly some ash flavours and dark bitter chocolate. Texture is thick and low carbonated.
