Pours jet black with minimal head. Aroma of coffee, bitter chocolate and boiled peanuts. Flavour not as full as the aroma but very rich and enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bartlebier (3507) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUN 13, 2016
12oz bottle new arrival at Bierhandlung bb04/2017. - (First sampled at Braukunst LIve 2013). - Fresh and precisely composed Dry/Oatmeal Stout with rich textured malts and a manageable hop bitter bite with character. A Top 50/World Class Stout I can live with. - * Earthy, tobacco-leaf dryness from the roast and Cascades quench thirst in lovely harmony, making this so much more and easier to drink than a winter warmer. * Lets roast nuts, coffee grounds and bitter chocolate powder hover over a hidden Cascade ale. * Deals mainly in dry bitters and does well as coffee spice in a sweet vanilla ice cream float. * Glad to revisit.

TedE (1015) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 4, 2016
355 ml bottle into pint. Served at room temperature. Smells of chocolate pudding, toffee, cocoa and oats. Blacker than ebony with a tan-coloured head. Surprisingly effervescent with a full body. Finish starts fruity moving to dry cocoa then dark chocolate. Very pleasant winter beer.

Blastomorpha (81) - - MAY 29, 2016
Pours pitch black with a thick dark brown-cappuccino head. Lots and lots of coffe both in aroma and taste, maybe even too much as it tends to mask everything else. Full body, medium-low carbonation, one of the most bitter stout I tried also, but very drinkable. Taste is not what I’d say exceptional, but I had to hinder myself from drink it all at once anyway. Had a lot of expectations from this beer, most not met honestly, but it’s far from being bad. Sure will drink again as I think this was some kind of an unlucky bottle.
