500 ml bottle from Coop Ryfflihof. Nose of chocolate and coffee. Pours almost black with a decent brown head. Taste is sweet with a blend of roasted coffee beans and licorice. Average carbonation. Slightly bitter but smooth finish. A delicious full bodied beer.

Coffee, chocolate, nuts, licorice and apples in the aroma. Almost black with a tan head. Medium to heavy sweet and light to medium bitter. Full body with a average to soft carbonation. Slightly oily texture. Overall a nice, rich stout, but i would like a bit more roasted notes.

craighill (11) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle from Tesco, Penarth on 21.08. Black with frothy beige head that vanishes quickly. Dark malt aroma with alcohol tones. Light carbonation with full body. Long bittersweet aftertaste follows coffee flavours, maybe raisins. Not as sweet as expected. Thumbs up.

hrabren (48) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 20, 2014
Bought at Kaufland Umag, Croatia. Black with creamy beige head, diminishes quickly. Bacon aroma at first, some acidity from yeasts? Taste begins bitter - smoked wood dominates with hints of smoked bacon saltiness. Low carbonation, full body, strong aftertaste. Lacks balance, but it’s a serious, manly stout.

Bootlegger007 (44) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 19, 2014
Great make up of flavours, chocolate, toffee and coffee, small but lasting light brown head, creamy texture with mild carbonation, excellent.
