I love this beer. Dark stout with thick creamy Coffey foam. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar taste expands to chocolate, Coffey and roasted bread.

tapthis (173) - Baytown, Texas, USA - JUN 12, 2015
Poors a solid black with a tan (very thin) head. tastes of hay, chocolate, coffee and roasted nuts. minimal hop presents yet it has a strong bite to the after taste. reminds me of a barnyard. Alcohol is not noticeable

jamaty (1338) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2015
Negra opaca. Poca espuma ocre. Aroma contundente, a coac. Bastante cuerpo y carbonatacion media. Tono alcoholico bastante marcado, como predominante. Sabor complejo, cacao, frutos secos, chocolate... Muy cremosa y con un postgusto fantastico.

RafeAU (424) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - JUN 10, 2015
355 ml bottle from Plonk. Pours clear black with tiny tan head. Big chocolately aroma. Little sweetness, some acid tang, astringency and lingering bitterness, all detract from it a bit. mild roastiness on the finish. Medium carbonation, tiny bubbles, medium body. Restrained for a RIS at 7% ABV. The way the RIS is this days, this weighs in a bit below that, more like a big stout.

Poured from 12oz. Bottle. Dark brown black color with small thin white head. Smell of nutty fruit is distinct and the hint of chocolate. Palate is smooth and full with hint of Carmel and chocolate with a faint bitterness at the very end. One of my favorite stouts by far. Great beer after dinner.
