Bottiglia 500ml Nel bicchiere si presenta con il caratteristico colore scuro del suo stile, schiuma consistente color nocciola. Al palato l’aroma è di malto tostato con intense note di cioccolato, caramello e fondo di caffè bruciato che persistono anche dopo l’assaggio. I suoi timidi 4,5% lasciano un po’ perplessi, attribuendogli una modesta corposità, accompagnata da una eccessiva carbonazione vanno sparendo in un deciso finale secco. Dispiace che i nostri supermercati, a differenza di quelli inglesi non dispongano di un buon prodotto come questo.

Keg at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A deep brown to black colour with a creamy beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, some vanilla and a hint of espresso. Taste of roasted malts, chocolate, some coffee and vanilla cream. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and a smooth texture. A smooth, dry, chocolatey finish with a hint of vanilla and roastiness. A nice stout, roasted flavour with light sweetness.

Espuma abundante demais. Olfato neutro, sem caracteristica. Paladar ácido, café torrado além do ponto ... decepcionante

mtu71 (229) - Oulu, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2015
Bottle, tulip glass. Excessive ochre head lasts long. Deep black. Chocolate and coffee on aroma and taste. Bit light body but quite nice balance. Crispy and bitter.

Bottle 50 cl. Pours black with brownish big frothy head. Notes of milk, chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, nuts, some kind of fruits. Kind of refreshing easy drinkable stout with decent flavor and body. Suprinsgly good body for this beer which makes it refreshing to drink.

Bottled variant. Very lively and bubbly but really tasty. Black body with a creamy head. Full bodied. Traditional stout without much chocolate or coffee flavour.

I smelt roasted barley or coffee. Somehow I would like to have more body for this stout. Maybe oats would have made this beer better. But three star is good. Taste ends with mild hops but hoppy taste lasted quite a while.
