Palme (3652) - Bergen, - AUG 24, 2012
A massive 0.5l bottle. This bottle has to weight at least 2 or 3 kilos. Anyhow, it pours a clear a clear deep deep ruby-brown body with a small but heavy lacing beige head. It smells light roasted and berry-sweet, some clear chocolate tones here and perhaps also some burned caramel. Not horrible. It has a really thin oily texture and itís quite soft carbonated. Light roasted flavors also, some chocolate. Really easy to drink, and itís leaving a mild dry tongue. Not bad, not great. 20.07.2012

prawlie (1465) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2016
On draught at the Nags Head in Reading a year or so ago. Black with a light bubbly brown head. Nice and roasted stout, with a dark malt body and a chocolate, albeit not entirely clean finish. A reasonable stout.

Bottle from Home Bargains. This was being sold around the £1 mark. Great value as it's a really good stout. Sweet then a bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Grumbo (1169) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2016
Cask at the Crosse Keys, London EC3. Plus black with a small off white head, leaving good lacing. Aroma of chocolate malt and mocha. Sweetness is almost that of a sweet stout, with a light bitterness. Velvet smooth texture, body is rather light, soft carbonation. Light roasting to sweet finish. A good beer.

IOzh (104) - Kyiv, UKRAINE - NOV 27, 2015
500 ml bottle. Pours dark brown with big, long lasting tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Light body with soft carbonation with dry finish. Bit too light for my taste.

theprof (413) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2015
Tap. Earthy roasted malt aroma. Classic black with cram top. Served from the craft corner so in my view over-chilled. This may explain why the flavours were more muted. Bready rather than biscuity with the barley outweighing the hops on the first taste. Some Smokey undertones and one can detect where the vanilla stout hails from. While more to my taste than most Guinness served this may keep me in the mild porter camp.

Kavu (3812) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 19, 2015
0,5l bottle from Citymarket, Jumbo. Pours very dark brown with a medium off-white head. Aroma is roasted malts and coffee. Flavor is dry roasted malts, coffee and hops. Pretty robust for the ABV. Nice.
