Jamedra (384) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 23, 2013
Láhev 500 ml. Chlebové aroma doprovázené kávou a hořkou čokoládou. Pěna je krémově hnědá, extra vysoká a držící, krásně příjemná na rtech. Barva samotného piva je temně černá proti světlu téměř neprůsvitná kalená rudá. Chuťově je pivo znát po třešních v čokoládě, doprovázené bílou slazenou kávou, celkově je pivo jen lehce hořké opravdu příjemně se pije. Jedná se o velmi kvalitní stout, který dělá opravdu dobrý, celkový dojem.

andriesradu (401) - ROMANIA - APR 20, 2013
Pours dark brown with a nice head. Aroma is roasted, malty, coffee, caramel. Flavour is the same, roasty, coffee, but too watery like being diluated with water.

CanCrusher (510) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - MAR 24, 2013
Bottle 0,50L. Very dark, ruby colour (can’t see through it) with frothy light brown head. Foreground aroma is dark chocolate, strong coffee and smoke, while there is some caramel and roasted malt in the background. Taste is light sweet in the start and turns into moderate bitter aftertaste with dark chocolate notes. It has medium to full body, oily texture and soft carbonation. OK stout, but nothing outstanding.

Kita (861) - Koper, SLOVENIA - MAR 20, 2013
Bottled, 0.50l. Clear dark brown color with large frothy brownish head, decent lacing, small floating particles and lively tiny bubbles. Aroma of caramel, coffee, smoke, herbal hops and vanilla. Taste starts with rich roasted malt, followed by fresh grassy notes. Mouthfeel is astringent, while aftertaste is moderately bitter and quite long. Full body, thick texture and average carbonation in palate. Totally cool stout...
