Aroma has licorice, some coffee and peaty tones. Flavour has salty licorice, some coffee and coffee. The salty licorice is rather dominant here. Too salty but still rather enjoyable. Could not locate the smoke here.

Pitch black, 1 finger espresso head that fades fast….i’m gonna enjoy this rating because in almost every beer I have, I can taste or smell broken dreams. Nose has a little chipotle pepper, milk chocolate, pepper and the classic roasted ashy malts. The taste is a really nice mix of heart disease, unemployment and broken dreams. Yet, very refreshing. Wish it had more body.

gianthogweed (53) - Cracow, POLAND - NOV 6, 2014
good as hell. all the best things that come from dark malts are right here. it looks beautiful too, and just look at the bottle - fabulous. i could drink this beer with my eyes only. simply delicious. drawbacks? aroma could be a bit more intense, and the beautiful brown foam disappears quickly. but it;s nothing.

Swaroga (1423) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 6, 2014
33cl bottle. The beer is smooth and oily. Aroma is not very intensive but reveals torrified notes like black chocolate. Some cheese and ashes. Taste is neither intensive but well balanced and satisfying. Nothing extraordinary comparing to many other stouts I had this evenning but it’s still a good one.

DrDrood (12) - GERMANY - NOV 5, 2014
Schöner feiner, leicht bräunlicher Schaum. In der Nase ganz viel Malz, Schokolade und Kaffeebohnen. Im Antrunk süßlich, dann öffnen sich Aromen von Kakao, Karamell, Kaffee, Vanille und etwas Nougat. Lang anhaltende süße im Abgang, angenehm herber Nachklang von Kakao und Espresso. Sehr schönes Stout
