Very soft and enjoyable mouthfeel. Rich coffee aroma upon opening. Rather foamy for a stout.

Très forte odeur de café. Goût puissant de café et de fumé. L’arrière goût de fumé reste. Très Bon stout.

mgajdaczewa (572) - Katowice, POLAND - NOV 11, 2014
W aromacie czekolada, kawa, popiół, czyli wszystko to, z czym stout się kojarzy. Jak na ekstrakt wyjątkow gęste, czekoladowe, z wyraźną palonością, sporą goryczką, pozostawiający kawę i popiół na długim przyjemnym finiszu. Lekko alkoholowy. Mały ris. Świetne piwo.

matis (156) - Warsaw, POLAND - NOV 10, 2014
Tap. Deep roasted malts on nose. Chocolate, coffee, vanilla and cocoa. Smooth and dry character. Some smoke, some herbs. Velvety and milky one.

Pours black like my soul with a complete absence of head. Warm fruity body. Coffee finish. Booze covered up well. Nice stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg at BD ShepBush. Black, tan head slowly sinks to skin. Nose of roast barley, dark chocolate, coffee, tobacco. Tastes sweet cinder toffee, milk chocolate, dark fruit, cocoa, hop bitterness, ashy burnt roast. Medium full body, slick texture, softish carb, lasting cocoa and roast astringency. This beer is bloody delicious.
