(bottle - 330 ml) Dark brown pour with a thick tan head. Light roasted malt and coffee aroma. Not much hint of the wood. Roasted coffee at the start with a quick shift to bitterness. Definite hints of cocoa nibs near the finish. Watery and thin finish.

Opaque black, medium brown head. Aroma: lots of cocoa, malty, some kind of sourness, lactose, coconut, wood; very complex. Body is medium, heavy sweetness, medium bitterness. In taste again lots of cocoa, lactose, it really reminds chocolate. Bit roasty finish.

beton (15) - Tarnobrzeg, POLAND - JAN 10, 2016
Pitch black colour with coffee foam, average and creamy, fairly lasting brown head. Lot of dark malty aroma, like a brownie cake, "bounty" , little woody touch, background is the liquorice. Taste is amazing , roasty dark malty with cocoa, coconut notes, little sweet hints of smooth milk chocolate, soft and silky finish.

drjoeng (857) - SINGAPORE - JAN 10, 2016
7.4%ABV. Stout. Poured out black. 40ºSRM. Nose has some nice smoky aromas with tobacco leaf richness, the clean aroma note of mesquite charcoal. Chocolate and coffee aromas are almost obligatory. Maybe a hint of the organic vegetal nature of peat. Prunes and stewed fruit, apples and pears at the end of the nose. Funky sourness suggestive of boiled raw cane sugar. Mouthfeel is somewhere between soapy and thinly syrupy. Palate has flavors of coffee, dark chocolate, yakitori, figs, honeyed dates, butterscotch and sticky date pudding breadth, Local tasting notes, char Siew burnt ends, bakkwa (which is a local grilled jerky) Finish is medium and actually surprisingly not annoying. Goes on Favorites List!

napdynmite (91) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2015
Smooth with rich chocolate and lactose sugar. Only a barely-there hop bitter bite on the finish. Neatly uncarbonated, which adds to the silkiness. A very good stout.

nihtila (2884) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 31, 2015
Bottle from Bottle Baron. Pours opaque black, dark brown head. Nose is rich, cocoa, fruits, gentle roast, creamy milky aromas. Taste follows: nice fruits, cocoa, gentle roast, rather sweet, milk shake-like frothiness, chocolate, light smoke. This is one of those beers you need to offer your better half when getting some nagging about your hobby. Excellent dessert beer.
