Bottle from Gambrinus (Tartu). Pours dark brown with a beige, medium, thick head. Head is not lasting long, but some of it will stay until you finish the beer. In aroma roasted malt/roasted bread. In sweet & bitter taste are hints of burnt sugar, coffee and maybe a little bit of chocolate. It’s summertime - have to drink it during winter again - then for sure I will be more generous in my rating as it’s really nice beer to drink at wintertime.

TheFoamhead (81) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2014
The choclate flavor finds its prolongation in the tase. A very nice chocolate caramel taste combined with a hint of fruityness, coming from the use of two hop sorts. The first sip might be a bit surprising, due to this very light acid note, but it levels the stong roast character and rounds it up. A bit like adding sugar to a salad dressing. The aftertaste could be more persisting in my eyes. With every sip you want to take immediately the next one - other stouts last in the mouth and you can still enjoy without taking a next sip. But maybe the brewers want exactly this effect... This is a very good stout with a surprising fruity side note, even bit acid. A very nice beer to accompany nut-cakes. Why I gave only 7 points for the overall taste? I miss the round, full bodied after taste. This is a bit too light for a stout in my eyes.

Bottle from Beers of Europe. Poured a very near black, with a halo of tan head. Aroma of chocolate, slightly sweet coffee and dried fruit. Medium to full mouthfeel. Flavours are sweet, but not saccharine; cocoa, mocha and some roasted malt to balance. Finish was fairly light, some brown sugar, dates and chewy malt.

The aroma of this beer is full of chocolate and coffee. The color is pitch black and no light is penetrating the glass. Perfect! The taste is very medium for a stout so a relative big amount can be consumed. It feels very creamy and silky on the tongue. Also a bittersweet aftertaste. A really nice beer!

500 ml bottle from Tesco - Deep dark brown colour. Small but dense tan head. Roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate in the aroma. Sweet and a little bitter flavour of burned malts and coffee. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Burnt and slightly bitter aftertaste. Surprising that I’ve passed this over soooo many times.

cmc619 (433) - California, USA - NOV 30, 2014
WIfe bought at British import store near Brussels (Stonemanor). Legit stout. Higher ABV that I’m used to for Brit styles. Awesome, unique bottle like a flask (500ml). Poured into Lagunitas mason jar. Deep, inky. Head modest. Amazing aroma and super rich flavor. Actually this beer seems even heavier than it’s ABV, which I actually like with this one.

Vladivostok (273) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2014
Almost black, cream coloured head. Subtle malty/roast aroma. full bodied and very drinkable with a good balance overall. A solid, professional stout from a brewery that knows what it’s doing.
