Aroma is how you think it should be with any stout. Cocoa and malts, a kind of held back aroma though, and a slight coffee note. The taste is also how you think it would be at first, but after the first "standard" stout taste, it develops a tiny herbal finish that is also a little bit sour. There’s a medium bitterness to this one, and the herbal touch follows all the way through. A fine classic stout that hides the ABV really well. Solid but maybe a little bit boring by today’s standard. I guess my great-great-grandfather thought it was awesome though?

Turtles (1735) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2015
330ml bottle. Pours black in the glass with a creamy tan head with small bubbles. Smells a lot of coffee. The taste is like the scent, much coffee! Also roasted coffee beans and slightly sweetness of dried dark fruit, black pepper och some warming alcohol. Quite complex flavor and there are new tones for every sip. Long, dry and bitter aftertaste. Good stuff.

Bottle from cgarvieuk from a year ago. poured into a duvel glass. pitch black with minimal head. deep cocoa aroma with chocolate and milk. Taste is fudge, brownies, a very light tartness in the finish to dry it out. no real sign of alcohol warming. A very pleasant beer.

Tonkatruck (42) - SPAIN - MAR 5, 2015
From a 330ml bottle bought from Beermerchants. Poured black opaque with a light brown head that died back quickly, carbonation med to low. Aroma all dark malts with coffee. The palate was great, fills the mouth and coats the tongue, Lovely. Flavour , mellow and rounded nice depth on the finish. Enjoyable with a great mouthfeel.

CarlJonas (231) - Linköping, SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2015
Pours pretty much black with a big brown head that leaves a long lasting lid. Rich aroma of dark roasted coffee, chocolate, vanilla. The taste is very well rounded bitter-sweet upfront, with a long lasting finish somewhat too ashen and astringent for my taste. Full bodied and slightly oily with lots of tiny bubbles that quickly dissipates. Very good, but I would’ve preferred a smoother finish.

330ml bottle. Pitch black with dense two finger brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and some bitterswert chocolate. Bitter roasted taste altering over to sweet chocolate and then back to a great mix of roasted dry and sweet. Great complex palate with very well hidden alcohol.

MrsWylie (9) - Sitges, SPAIN - FEB 24, 2015 does not count
Lingering peat, whisky and molten dark chocolate on the tongue. Roasted coffee and molasses malt character on the nose plus a hint of soy sauce - Tia Maria meets Umami! Irregular, frothy, dark head. Black, full body.

Cool_Bond (2263) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2015
The aroma is of dark coffee. The taste is sweet but still dark chocolate and dark coffee. Maybe a little alcohol also in taste. But not so much. Heavy bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the mouth forever. The aftertaste really do not want to end. Good beer but I do not really give a great rating so it is for me only okay. Very heavy beer to drink. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

@ Basunen 15-2-21: riktig fyllig doft av kaffe och choklad. Smaken är mycket fyllig och full av bitter choklad och torr kaffe. Lång fin och fyllig eftersmak med toner av arrak och vanilj. Riktigt gott. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!
