JonnyConga (98) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle at home. Roasty aroma. Tastes of coffee, burnt roastiness and a dryish slightly bitter finish. I think I'm more of a sweet stout sort of person, this is tasty but perhaps a little burnt for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A decent stout. I heard that in Germany you can buy it in Tesco. I wish we had beers like that in polish markets.

Pringao_Toribi (261) - Oviedo, SPAIN - SEP 26, 2014
In short: smooth coffee beer. Aroma is light and malty, pours black with creamy foam, taste is to roasted coffee/cocoa, palate is watered down and bitter.

HammerTroll (518) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 24, 2014
Pitch black, small tan fast disappearing head. Weak vanilla aroma. Taste of cocoa of epic proportions! Cocoa bomb, with a nice hint of coffee. Medium to heavy bitterness. Thin body, soft carbonation. Texture is creamy and watery. Long cocoa bitter finish. This is like chocolate with 85% of cocoa among beers. Too bad for its thinness.

ClubGonzo (4127) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 24, 2014
Bottle @ Biskopen, Bergen. Pours a near-black deep brown body with a medium creamy light beige head. Nose is licorice, red fruits, mild leather notes, black currants, hints of dark chocolate. Taste is burnt toast, bready malts, nuts, hints of biscuits, grains and coffee. Medium body, medium to soft carbonation. Quite nice and straightforward stout in the British tradition.
