KeefOz (1512) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUN 20, 2016
Poured an opaque black with a slight mahogany edge tint with a one-finger tan dense foam head that diminished to a collar that laced OK. Carbonation low. Aroma of sweet dark chocolate and roasted coffee with an earthiness about it. Taste of strong roasted malt with hints of sweet dark chocolate and coffee that developed into a smoky/burnt flavour; moderate bitterness. Light to medium body, a bit thin for a stout. Finishes with a moderately strong burnt bitterness.

brnandersen (3253) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2016
50 cl bottle poured in to a Snifter. Pitch black with a thin, tanned head. Roasted aroma with dark malts, coffee, chocolate, caramel malts, brown cookies. Some cocoa. A herbal bitterness. Taste is bitter-roasted. Medium body with an oily texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes dry and roasted bitter with liquorice and dark malts. Lovely Stout.

Gehbe (175) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - MAY 21, 2016
Look: Black, clear, with a thick tanned head. Aroma: Coffee on top note, some chocolate, hints of dark bread, dried plum. Taste: Well balanced sweetness vs roastiness, aftertaste roasty bitter. Palate: Medium body, quite smooth, perfect carbonation, no excess alcohol. Overall a very drinkable stout, nice aroma and balance. Apparently the whole bottle got emptied while writing this review...
