rami_pl (1460) - Warszawa, POLAND - FEB 6, 2016
butelka, Pod Mosteczkiem. na szybko: smakuje jak dry stout, wytrawny, z naciskiem na pijalnosc. z jednej strony wszystko na swoim miejscu (kawa, ciemna czekolada, palonosc), z drugiej zas wszystko to bardzo delikatne. rowniez niewiele ciala, sredni- wysycenie, prawie wcale goryczki. efekt: piwo ktore sie wypija w 5 minut, a po kolejnych 5ciu o nim nie pamieta...

The_Osprey (5459) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2015
500ml in Wales, as ’Robinsons Unicorn Black’, 4.1%, BB Sep 2016. Cola black, dense foamy dirty brown head, full lacing. Aroma is chocolatey, roasted malt, treacle, thin coffee. Body is medium, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is liquoice, thin roast coffee, some ash in the finish. Nice ashiness, but a bit sweet and thin too. Overall, not bad. Aroma is quite nice, as is the musty ashy aftertaste. Just a touch thin.

StueyD (1555) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2015
A dark black-brown coloured beer with a thick and frothy tan coloured head. A light roasted malt aroma, nutty, dark caramel, toffee, plus hints of ripe red fruit and liquorice. Dry and light mouthfeel. The taste is bittersweet, all the roasted malt elements again, nutty, burnt caramel, coffee bean, fruit and the liquorice in the background. The finish is long and bittersweet. Bottle from Lidl, Fakenham.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2015
Stinckley Lidl. Good as black with a fine draping cappuccino foam. Attractive moderately roasted aroma suggestive of good chocolate, roasted nuts, rust and dried black grapes. Straightforward burnt wood, nuts and paper flavour a little disappointing after the aroma with dark chocolate and black cherry hints. Mint humbugs. Chocolate mousse. Etc.
Earlier Rating: 2/22/2013 Total Score: 2.2
Bottle from Booth’s. Glossy pitch with a massive, honeycombed beige head. Not entirely pleasant aroma of various eastern sauces; soy, oyster and nam pla all in there. Stroke of unwashed dog; some battered sausage. Smells sweet; briny, slightly rotten. Sorghum? Taste predominantly burnt cardboard. A scattering of iron filings; bourbon, cocoa emerging. Yep, burnt cardboard dunked in bourbon. No stout. Will hold my nose and just about get through this. Yuck.

harrisoni (16704) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2015
Bottle from Lidl and drunk at home. Black beer lasting tan head. Chocolate and dark malts aroma. Bit of newspaper maybe. It’s a little watery. Some decent chocolate cake. It’s kinda ok, but a little bit thin for me.

themightylazza (108) - - NOV 1, 2015
Dark ale with a coffee oily aroma, a flavour of coffee and roasted malt and a fetish bitter finish. This is quite a pleasant stout, perhaps a little astringent but not bad

BeerViking (3842) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2015
Bottle from Lidl, pours a deep dark brown with a lacing crema and aromas of roasted barley and a little coffee. Dry and burnt, with touches of roast malt and cocoa. Hints of red fruit emerge and dry caramel emerge as the beer warms, before subsiding into a dry and burnt finish.
