caramel, chocolate, coffee, black, heavy cloying sweetness, Good maltiness but the sweetness destroys a bit of the taste.

Dark black stout. But also like dark cream ale. Quite strong smell of yeast, creamy moldiness. Chocolate.

What a wonderful stout. It pours a thick black colour and has the most wonderful aroma of dark chocolate, cream and Id even say some liquorish. Its a very sweet stout, I love it!

jjsint (1059) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2015
Bottle from Tesco. Impenetrable black with a wispy tan head. Malt, roast coffee, buttered toast, ash in the aroma. Sweet taste which slowly dissipates, leaving the tastebuds to ponder the lingering hoppy bitterness in the back of the tongue. A real find, and this brewerys best. A welcome change from the unfortunate string of mediocre beers Ive had of late!

willisread (203) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 20, 2015
500ml bottle from Masuyos in Asagaya. Poured into a stemmed tulip. Blackberry colored with a nice tan head that dissipates fairly quickly. Nice dark cacao, burned coffee and cabernet wine present with a hint of bitterness also noticeable. Mouthfeel is somewhere between oily and creamy. Not much carbonation. Nice long semi-sweet finish with a bit of alcohol taste as well. Really nice stout.

17Beer (64) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 15, 2015
Dark black with a hint of red. Brown head that dissipates quickly, strong lacing. Aroma of caramel, dough, yeasty, malty, light raisin-sweetnes. Tastes slight sweetness, medium sourness, salty. Full body, creamy, fizzy, short coffee finish. Tasty well balanced stout.

Pedrens (70) - SPAIN - FEB 8, 2015
Botella 500 ml. Marron muy oscuro espuma beige oscuro, de decente formacion aunque no muy persitente. Aroma a malta tostada, chocolate, licor,...en boca dulce. Con amargor a chocolate belga. Y puede q algo a lupulo. CarbonTacion media, aceitosa y media fina....el final no demasiado potente...a chocolate sobre todo. Bastante redonda...buena stout

A fine stout, nothing special. Pours an inky black with a quickly dissipating head. Smells of chocolate, cream soda and vanilla. Taste is basic, some chocolate and a dry finish. Had in the bottle.
