Bottle, 500 ml. A decent stout, coffee is clearly present. Aroma could be more complex, dominated by coffee. Lively and interesting palate.

A bit lively as you pour it. Gorgeous darkest black colour. Slightly too fizzy for a stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bitterschokolade und Röstmalz, aber wenig. Bitterer Antrunk, eher dünn, aber stark für 5.2%. Mittel Co2. Langer bitterer, röstiger Schoggi- Abgang

patxa (200) - MEXICO - DEC 31, 2014
Aroma débil a café, chocolate, licor y pino. Aspecto negro con matices rubíes, espuma abúndate y bronceada, con excelente lazo en los mismos tonos. Notas a chocolate amargo y granos tostados de café, así como toronja casi al final. Cuerpo medio a completo y paladar suave a pesar de un amargor de medio a elevado. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JoeMcPhee (8819) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Deep black pour with a thick creamy tan head. The aroma is quite roasty and a little bit of bitter cocoa. Has a pretty insistent roastiness on the finish as well as a bit of molasses. Firm and roasty.

danielecamo (663) - ITALY - DEC 12, 2014
In bottiglia. Colore marrone scuro, schiuma ben presente, marrone e fine. Aroma morbido di cioccolato e caffè tostato, leggero bruciato che non disturba. Al palato corpo rotondo ma non eccessivo, dapprima emergono le tostature del malto, poi cioccolato, caffè amaro e nota finale con ancora un sentore tostato al limite del bruciato. Piacevole sorpresa

peponi (618) - Krakow, POLAND - DEC 5, 2014
Aroma: rum, coffee, bitter chocolate, dried fruits. Appearance: nice dark brown color, beige head. Taste: medium herbal bitterness, bitter chocolate, roasted malts, coffee substitute, heather, dry. Palate: medium body and medium carbonation, herbal finish. Overall: Really good aroma, but taste is really average. It’s a pity.
