jbruner (2826) - Athens, Georgia, USA - FEB 4, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2013 500 mL bottle. Pours an opaque black from the bottle with bubbly tan head that dissipates to thin cap, leaving light lacing. Aroma of soy sauce, roasted malt, and raisins. Taste follows, with a creamy mouth and slightly bitter finish. Solid english stout.

Has a pleasant and characteristic taste with notes of chocolate and even a bit of licorice. Recommend.

Vannerator (8) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 16, 2015 does not count
As others have said head disappears immediately.Yeast, vanilla, chocolate on the nose. Slightly creamy mouth feel, with just the right sweetness for my liking. Heavy bittersweet chocolate, with satisfying bitter aftertaste. Carbonation heavy at first, but reduces quickly. Lovely stout.

Franckg (315) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 15, 2015
UPDATED: APR 20, 2015 Robe d’un noir intense d’où ne s’échappe qu’un mince reflet brun. Mousse inexistante. La dentelle est mince et aqueuse. Petite déception ici. Je me serais attendu à quelque chose de plus épais, comme l’indique le nom. Les arômes annoncent de quoi de mieux. Le côté sucré comme le chocolat et mélasse côtoit à merveille les baies confites, pruneau et noisettes. En bouche, le goût suit les arômes. Les saveurs fruitées et sucrées prennent le dessus rapidement et laissent leur place à des flaveurs plus amères comme le café et chocolat noir avec une touche de zeste de citron. La finale est plutôt courte met de l’avant un léger côté torréfié. Le corps est malheureusement très mince et plutôt minéral. La faible effervescence vient atténuer cette lacune. Une bonne bière en général dont je ne m’attendais à rien.

Dark chocolate colour with tiny head which quickly dissappear. Smell of chocolate, cacao and vanilla. flavour of chocolate, which prevails, some bitterness in aftertaste. Good beer for winter times.

One of my all time favorites. The mouthfeel is awesome and creamy, just like it should be. Not too sweet and perfect for cooler weather as a special treat.

gregerik (13) - Kings Lynn, Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2015
Piwo z butelki. Kojarzy mi się z czekoladowym likierem, bez nadmiaru słodyczy, bardzo przyjemny stout, nawet mojej dziewczynie smakował, a ona preferuje piwa typu helles. Stosunek ceny do jakości - rewelacja (przynajmniej w UK). Chętnie do niego wracam.

50cl bottle. Brownish head quickly disappears. Pleasant fresh, yeasty aroma. Chocolate taste, light bitterness comes very quickly. Long bitterly aftertaste. Very enjoyable stout.

Bottle. Average light brownish head with good retention. Clear deep brown (deep brandy) colour. Aroma is chocolate, raisin and roasted malts with cream and hop hints. Flavour is roasted malt, black coffee and roasted plum. Roasted malt finish. Creamy, medium oily full body. Fruity bitter aftertaste. A good stout.

Old rating. Pours very dark, with a big rocky head. Aroma is roasted malts, with chocolate, cocoa and coffee. Rather light body, with very soft carbonation. Flavour is sweet roasted malts, with dark chocolate, cocoa, mocha coffee and syrup. Sweet, burned malts in the finish.
