Pours a dark dark brown. Lovely milky brown head. Good legs. Cinder toffee and roast choc nose. Silky orgasmic mouthfeel. Spicy and sweet taste. Good stout, a pudding in itself. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SlackerMads (1609) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle. Pitch black with a large creamy dark brown head. Dusty, cocoa, vanilla, wood, brown sugar. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, medium sweet and light bitter. Sweet finish. Yeah, itís a bit sweet and goopy and I donít get the overall idea. It is written on the bottle but tldr. So all in all it is sweet with lots of chocolate.

beermearjay (33) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2014
Bottle from Brewdog bottle shop into tulip glass. Nice dark black with tan head, tight foam. Oily cocoa, vanilla, strong milky, liquorice, some coffee. Wow, medium to thick body in the mouth, loads of sweetness up front with lasting bitterness, the end body as you swallow is almost like swallowing marshmallow, or air in a good way? Doesnít leave any cloying feeling, just a really pleasant lingering chocolate and cyprus almost orange taste. Very, very nice.
