Edmoe (241) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2011
Pours black with thick, brown head. Aroma smells strongly of burnt coffee (Perhaps a little too much). Strong malty flavor but is overpowered by the dark malts. A tad too bitter. Overall, a pretty good stout.

veceo (866) - CROATIA - AUG 22, 2015
Dark brown color, nice tan head. Pleasant roasty aroma, lots of chocolate and coffee, also some dark fruits. Taste is surprisingly tasty with coffee, milk chocolate and roasted malt being most dominant. Medium body, soft carbonation. Well, surprisingly awesome easy going stout.

Cunningham (5726) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 14, 2015
Almost black color with a fine beige head. Coffee, chocolate and fruity aroma. Well I think a lot of adjective will fit for this one. Tad sweet flavor with coffee, some roasted malt, light fruity and some chocolate. Decent nice stout.
[Bottle from Utobeer at Borough Market, Southwark in London, England]

decaturstevo (5487) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUL 30, 2015
Black brown pour with tan head and lace. Aroma is light coffee and a touch of chocolate. A decent malt bitter. Medium bodied and fizzy. A little weak on flavor and body but still ok.

Marko (4321) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 27, 2015
Bottle at The Loop Hotel, shared with Hrabren, visnja666v and Goran (thanks!). Poured a black body with a slightly off white head. Creamy, slightly perfumey aroma, grapes, light coffee, just slightly oily but generally fresh. Very light... banana? Eh? But certainly interesting. Mild, light taste, coffee, creamy, vague raisins, light soapiness. Dry finish. OK dry stout all in all, nothing against it but the price.

Bottle 0,33l. Dark liquid with beige head. Medium body, light carbonation. Cocoa bitterness as finish. Very full for such low alcohol. Very tasty.

HammerTroll (848) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 23, 2015
Pitch black, small brown head. Aroma is chocolate and cocoa, hints of sugar. Taste dark chocolate, coffee, bit roasty, long cocoa bitter finish. First kick is weak, but it’s growing beautifully. Bit watery, soft carbonation, creamy texture. If there is little bit more higher ABV and thickness, this one would be marvelous.

Nitrous pour. Great dark black pour with a holding cream head. Sweet molasses taste with a tiny bite of chocolate. Great beer.

on nitro. Pours black with an average sized frothy light brown head. Aroma is roasted chocolate malt and coffee. Moderately sweet with roasted coffee notes. Full bodied with creamy texture. Pretty good.
