Pours black. Not a powerful aroma, bread and caramel. Good flavor, roasty, smokey flavors and a little caramel sweetness. Not an overpowering stout, but enjoyable.

Biroholik (763) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - APR 29, 2016
Draught @ Russian River Brewing, Santa Rosa, California (20.04.2016)
Ogromna kremowa piana. Oleista, potężna zwarta tekstura. W smaku i zapachu dominuje bardzo intensywna kawa z mlekiem. Prócz tego orzeszki ziemne, lekka mleczność, laktoza. Paloność idealnie współgra z czekoladą. Lekko ściągający finisz. Dobry trunek, nic poza tym.

b3shine (7956) - Indiana, USA - FEB 1, 2016
Nitro draft to taster at the brewpub. Looks good; a translucent cola with creamy light beige head. Smells of dark malt, chocolate, and roast with a distinctly dry stout nose. Tastes like it smells with a fairly dry medium light-bodied mouthfeel. Some bitterness from the roast as well. Okay.
