Bottle at home. Darkest black with a frothy fading tan head. Aroma is nice sweet milk chocolate, touch of coffee, licorice. Flavour bitter coffee, chocolate grows a little, low carbonation.

Rune (8047) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 9, 2014
330ml botlle bought in January 2013 at The House of Trembling Madness Shop in York. Oily pour. Shiny naked surface. Deep, all-black body. No lacing. Dark malty nose. Malty base added by salt and sweet liquorice. A bland twist of malt bitterness to the ending. Rather flat in the mouth. Medium bodied. Alright, had expected more though (shared with Finn, Tromsø 05.03.2014).

Flaske 0,33 l. Spandert av Rune og delt under seanse i WCveien 5 Mar 14. Svart. 0 skum. Aroma av mørk frukt & litt sjokolade. Smaken forsiktig røstet maltmed innslag av tung frukt. Myk munnfølelse. Blir litt anonym.

mgajdaczewa (500) - Katowice, POLAND - FEB 14, 2014
Smaczny, acz niecodzienny stout. W aromacie sporo kawy, lekka nuta kwaskowa, poza tym niezidentyfikowane nuty sosu sojowego wzmagający pełnię. W smaku dość pełne, jak na stouta mocno wysycone, przeważa kawa, lekkie nuty czekoladowe, intensywny kawowo słonawy finisz.

Fin (7410) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle from ’Jacks’ Westholme Stores, Goring-on-Thames, Oxon, consumed at home Monday 30th December 2013 Pours black with a few bubbles skitting across the top. Smooth and very easy drinking, a little roasty with some coffee. I don’t get any ’hint of the sea’ it’s just a nice stout. Tasty. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8

RevPaddyOJogsy (2) - - DEC 29, 2013 does not count
Almost inky black in texture with a high carbonation. Kinda tastes like an oyster stout but is too fizzy. May have gotten a bad bottle

CraftBeerNick (893) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2013
Bottle at home, bought from brewery, 8th December 13. Slight head, black body, aroma liquorice, peaty, earthy, some smoke and ash. Taste is slightly sweet, some ash, some salt, a little liquorice, and some alcohol in the finish. Palate is low carbo, as expected from this brewery and in line with the style, nice stout.

Bottle @ benzai thx to benzai. Quite black with no head at all. Smells sourish, liquorice, tar, ashy. Taste liquorice, tar, roasty, coffee and chocolate. Also ’wiebertjes’ for the Dutch people. Decent taste but there is no carbo at all. I need at least some carbo. Medium body.
