Jet black, opaque. Coffee-colored head. Roasty smell. Very roasted taste, but creamy and plenty of malt flavor. Very different than a Guinness (lots of people think they are they same style--they aren’t). That is, its a much sweeter, fuller flavor, yet still roasted.

Pours a clear black. Exceptional head, lacing and retention. Light nose of chocolate, roast and caramel. Almost full bodied, yet creamy. Normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is very well balanced, but not as complex as the world class stouts. It’s a nice blend of chocolate, roast and slightly sweet caramel that flows into a low level bitterness. The finish is smooth leaving you with a nice lingering tingle of cocoa and hops.

jamestulloch (1264) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle from Drinkmonger. Black body with a thin beige head that quickly fades to nothing. No lacing. Aroma of chocolate cake, vanilla, dark chocolate, espresso and black cherry. Flavour of treacle, burnt toast, plum and Marmite. Sweet then bitter. Medium body with a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Nice fizz. Very malty and quite heavy going.

fajry (384) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 13, 2014
Fľaša. Tmavá čierna farba, krémová pena. Vôňa pražených sladov, čokolády, karamelu a kapučína. V chuti cítiť jemnú sladkosť, pražené slady, trošku karamel a v pozadí suchosť kakaa a tóny kapučína. Chmeľová aróma je len veľmi málo zastúpená. Stredne plné telo s ľahkým nasýtením. Fajnovo vyvážený stout.
