On tap at Pete's. A black pour with a frothy, retentive light brown head. Good lacing. Aromas of sugary malt and coffee. Taste is oatmeal, espresso, and a semisweet chocolate finish. A well balanced, albeit bitter stout.

35.5cl bottle split with SimonBlok, cheers for that. Pours a colour as black as my ex-girlfriends soul with a decent beige head which diminishes to a even thin layer. Aroma of oatmeal, soy sauce, caramel, coffee beans. Taste is fairly sweet, medi bitter with a dry bitter finish. Notes of caramel, coffee, peated malts, chocolate. Texture is oily to sticky, medium to full bodied with decent carbonation.

On nitro draft. Poured a beautiful jet-black with a beige-colored head that lasted for days. Super smooth, mellow drink with lingering coffee, chocolate, and cigar notes.

Kita (1896) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 4, 2016
Bottle, 0.355l. Pitch black color with medium creamy light brown head and poor lacing. Aroma of oats, roasted malt, coffee, caramel and chocolate. Taste starts with moderate sweet malt and oats, follows by dry coffee, chocolate and licorice, mouthfeel is rich and smooth, while finish is mild bitter. Medium to full body, creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. Liquid poetry in motion...

alteregoo (923) - POLAND - AUG 5, 2016
Piana beżowa, nieduża, szybko opada do firanki. Barwa czarna jak smoła, nieprzejrzysta. Aromat gorzkiej czekolady, kawy espresso, lukrecji - intensywny, przyjemny. W smaku dość wytrawne, palone, kakaowe, truflowe, kawowe, wyraźnie gorzkie. Jest też delikatna wanilia w aftertejsie. W odczuciu lekko szorstkie, cierpkie, średnio wysycone grubymi bąblami, dość rzadkie, ale treściwe.
Zaskakujące, że wodniste w swej strukturze piwo może być tak pełne smaku i zapachu. Nie wiem, czy to jakieś sztuczne dodatki (jak ekstrakt z orzechów w ich Hazelnut Brown Nectar) czy nie, ale dobrze się to pije.

Antonio369 (157) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2016
35,5 cl bottle, served in snifter glass. Poured black as a moonless night with a three finger mocha tan head. Wonderful aroma of: dark chocolate, roasted malts, dark fruit, vanilla, licorice, roasted coffee beans, caramel. Taste: dark chocolate, vanilla, dark roasted espresso beans, burnt toffee, dark fruit, licorice, hoppy bitterness, roasted nuts, caramel, haagse hopjes (Dutch caramel/coffee treats), marshmallows, whole wheat currant bread, raisins. Thick & bready roasted mouthfeel. Oatmeal gives the beer its extra ’chunk’. Medium to full body with a very roasted bittersweet finish. Absolutely delicious stout.
