Bottle. Pours dark brown to red with nice tan lasting head. Aroma is roasty, fresh milk, caramel, hint of some licorice perhaps. Flavor is roasty, caramel, chocolate, fresh milk. Smooth palate. Aftertaste is slightly dry. This beer grew up on me. I usually have a few bottles at home and enjoy it quite often.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: coffee substitute, dark roasted malts, iron.
Appearance: black color, nice beige thin head.
Taste: dark roasted malts, coffee substitue, iron, low bitterness, ash.
Palate: medium body, medium carbonation, finish is astringent and ashy.
Overall: Quite nice stout. In my view too much ashy, but that’s somehow ok. The biggest disadvantage is the iron aftertaste.

Black body with nice beige head. Almost perfect look. Aroma is delicate and pleasant. Coffe, roasted malts, chocolate notes. When it gets warmed, a little bit sherry scents. Tastes also very delicate, but roasted malts and chocolate is dominant. Cocoa noticeable. Nice bitter and dry finish. Overall very, very good and solid beer.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Coś nie grało w tym piwie. Wyglądało jak stout, było czarne, z lichą pianą. Aromat niezbyt intensywny, trochę palony. W smaku totalny miszmasz, bo mamy sporo karmelu, nieprzyjemną goryczkę zalegającą, paloność, niska pijalność, męczące, źle zbalansowane piwo.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a beautiful pitch black, with a huge light brown head that diminishes fairly quickly, leaving a fair lace. Very faint aroma, only noticed some roasted malts. First sip is full of coffee, then fades away, leaving only a light bitterness. Average carbonation, medium bodied, oily texture. Not so exciting for a stout.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Definitely dry, long lasting finish. Robust beige head, low carbonation, almost black color with some brownish reflections. The aroma and the first sip are surprisingly sweetish, the dryness kicks in later. Multi-dimensional beer. Well-crafted. Some vegetable and licorice notes in the aroma, which are unnecessary.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled at La 100 de Beri, Bucharesm, Romania. Near black, small head. Molasses and coffee upfront. Mid sweet with medium body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Caramel, fudge and some chocolate. Salty finish. Sweetish and rather clumsy.
