teorn88 (3630) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2013
33cl bottle from the brewery. It pours a dark brown almost black colour with a thin beige head. Some alcohol lacing on the side of the glass. A ring of foam lasts long on the sides. Aroma is is intense and very much coffee forward. Then also roasted malts and bitter woody notes come through. Taste is much similar with a tad of initial sweetness which turns in a bit of tartness to then close with a long longering biterness. Lots of rosted coffee notes with cocoa as well. Light alcohol hints. Mouthfeel is quite good qith nice carbonation. Overall, definitely a winner and quite impressive.

Are you a partisan? Or is it a case of time and energy? I have little of either but Iíd like to think if the need arose, Iíd join the International Brigade. But I probably wouldnít. Iím no George Orwell, as you can tell from this review. Nice coffee hit. This is a beauty.

rlgk (14376) - GŲteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2012
Bottle at Craft Beer Co, London. Pitch black beer with a nice lasting brownish head. Malty chocolate aroma, licorice, soot, dark chocolate, roasted, ash, raisins, figs, vanilla notes, peat, dark bread, some cocoa powder. Roasted malt flavor, caramel, chocolate, cocoa powder, ash, creamy, dark bread, figs, a bit vinous. Not as powerful as the Pale ale, but still a good effort.

A Mes rate. Bottle kindly given to me by Andy at my birthday bash. For those who donít know, Partizan is the next big thing. As a first couple of brews, this and the Sauvin IPA set an extremely high benchmark. This is an exceptional stout. It looks gorgeous for a start. Black as a vicarís sock (thanks Haddonsman) with a glorious tan foamy bonce. It looks like it means business... And it needs me to help by drinking it. Proper chocolate and coffee dessert on the snout with just a lick of naughty boozy character. Stunning, ballsy malt and big coffee in the mouth with a dark underlying chocolate base. Loads of depth to the blackness. But itís not all malt. Thereís a good lick of hops in here. It balances out just about spot on to me. The finish is good coffee bitterness and a lingering hint of alcohol that reminds you that however smooth and drinkable this is, itís not fucking around. A couple of these down me and Iíd be convinced itís a good idea to get completely smashed. Nice one Andy. Oh, the mouthfeel is pretty much perfect too. Silky smooth and effortless to drink. Awesome. And dangerous. Love it.
