Bottle @ home. Nice simply label. Strong and fine aroma. Appearance was spongy and pretty, but vanished too soon. Little bit burned dry coffee in taste and palate. Overall very enjoyable stout.

Black color with creamy light brown head. Aroma is really hop forward with some nice roasty undertones and a touch of caramel. If I had this blind, I would have said itís a black IPA for sure. Taste starts quite roasty up-front, bitter and slightly acidic with a slight malt sweetness in the background. Hops are still present with bitter and earthy notes but stay more in the back, letting the roasted malts shine. Medium body with a really soft mouthfeel. Overall this is a bitter stout with lots of hops and roasted malts, really tasty and easy drinking.

nihtila (2563) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 18, 2016
UPDATED: APR 18, 2016 Keg at The Hanging Bat. Pours almost black, oily, dark brown head. Nose is heavyish roast, chocolate, light liquorice. Full body, tastes roasted malts, salted liquorice, bitter chocolate. Full body and taste but still misses something, maybe some more sweetness to balance the salty roastiness.

StoutHead (937) - DENMARK - MAR 27, 2016
Tap @ Brewdog Soho. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. The taste is nice and roasted and with flavours of roasted malts, coffee, dark bitter chocolate, hops and a bit of licorice. Very full body for a 7.5% beer. Soft carbonation. VERY tasty. :-) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tastes like a black IPA -- very bitter, sort of ashy taste. While I sometimes do enjoy intense flavours in beer, this one seemed to distract from the good qualities of the beer. Not my really my cup of tea. Iíve only tried one other in this style so far, The Kernel 1890, which was much more what I would expect/hope for beers in this style to taste like.

0,33l bottle at home bought at Firmabier. BB 30.07.2016. black color, small coffee-colored head. smells a bit sourish, rather hoppy, some herbs, exotic fruits, mango, some licorice, earthy. decent smell. full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes weird sourish, some licorice, green apples, rather unclean / bit pukeish, some hops, herbs, exotic fruits, spices. finishes weird sourish again with some spices and some hop notes. looks like there was an issue with my bottle, not enjoyable.
