Pours a very dark brown, almost black if not held up to the light. Good head and good head retention. I think the aroma is what letís it down a bit. The hop aroma is quite minimal and I was expecting a bit more. I really like the taste. The bitterness is really well balanced and there is a rich malty flavour. Coffee notes come through strongly. Big mouthfeel. Overall I really like it.

airrick2003 (659) - Louisiana, USA - MAY 27, 2015
Appearance: pours with a very large dark tan head, the beer is a clear dark brown color that looks black unless itís held up to the light, some really nice ruby tones in there as well, good head retention Aroma: coffee, Taste: coffee, medium sweetness from the malt comes thru as chocolate and coffee, not especially bitter on the finish but the hops are definitely there Palate: heavy mouthfeel, frothy, fluffy, soft carbonation, coffee sweet and bitter aftertaste Overall: a good stout that leans more towards the coffee flavor, not very sweet or bitter, well balanced, could use more aroma, alcohol hidden very well, not a big beer as far as above goes, stands out with itís mouthfeel which is very fluffy

tectactoe (3099) - Michigan, USA - MAY 26, 2015
Bottle: Deep, dark brown edges with a black center. Light-tan head on top that leaves surprisingly good lacing all the way down. Nose is sweet, creamy, milky chocolate with undertones of roasted malt, burnt grains, & licorice. Roasted flavor leaves a mild bitterness up front with a counterpoint from the sweet chocolate malt sugars. Cocoa, mild ash, licorice, a small touch of earthy hops in the finish. Maybe even a touch of coffee. Creamy body, but slightly thin. Overall, a nice stout.

0,33l bottle at Cafe Aumann/Wien18. Its cool to see that more and more pubs and restaurants in Vienna offer craft beer. This stout is a fine example of its style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
