Not a fan. Dark pour with little head. Medicine aroma overwhelms chocolste. Taste is bitter with chocolste and coffee in the background. Just did not work for me.

500ml bottle from Sainsbury’s.
Small dark tan head disappears quickly, barely any lacing, body is near black. Nose is roasted coffee and nuts, a little sweet fruit. Flavour is coffee, chocolate followed by berries and nuts. Coffee returns on the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is a bit thin for a stout. Medium carbonation. Decent flavour but let down a bit in other areas.

500ml bottle, pours black with a small head, aroma is chocolate and burnt caramel malt, nicely textured with a medium to thin body and a smooth, balanced, slightly bitter finish. Carbonation low to average. Nicely crafted session stout. Good stuff.

Pullon takia ostettu. Todella tumma ja hapokas. Ei makea, mutta muuten mainio. Kyllä tätä kannattaa ostaa.

500ml bottle at home. Dark brown pour, thick dark brown head which goes very quickly. Aromas of dark chocolate and ash. Taste has more chocolate and coffee bitterness. Rich mouthfeel for the strength. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the 500 ml. bottle. It pours deep black with a moderate beige-tan head that slowly fades. The aroma is like burnt chocolate and wood. I love that burnt malty aroma. Smoky might be another term for it but "burnt" seems a better description. Thin to medium body. The taste also has a burnt malt flavor with a light bitterness to balance it out. An easy to drink stout.

Nice roasty flavour. Bitterness is a bit overwhelming masking subtle tastes. Overall good beer and I recommend it to everyone.

Taste is slightly sour-ish grassy, dark malts, grass, caramel, hay, roasted grain, sour coffee. Medium bitterness, a little thin body. Very nice for beeing only 4%.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
smells like a guinness but taste is much more stout...besides the strong roasted malt flavor off the bat with a bit of bitterness, the finish is watered down. Not as smooth as guinness either...doesn’t stack up
