Jamedra (447) - Hostivice, - 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.

Bottle. Aroma mostly roasted, cocoa, coffee, light chocolate. Almost black colour, brown head. Taste is lightly burnt, cocoa, coffee. Overall mostly roasted. Mouthfeel is quite smooth. Too roasted for my taste. Really dry, lack of sweet balance. Otherwise fine stout.

ThirstyBird (1455) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAY 8, 2014
Pours a super dark brown with a hint of orange peeking through just at the edge and then a thick rich tan head. The beer smells of dark roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. The taste is dark roasted malt, bitter chocolate, coffee, dark fruit ending dry and roasty. The body is light/medium with fine carbonation that is a tick below average in intensity.

ciocanelu (51) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 24, 2014
500 ml bottle, poured into a pint. Color is an opaque black. Forms a large, beige head and leaves lots of lacing. Aroma is not very strong, just some roasted malt. Taste is full, roasted... on the bitter side. Leaves a pleasant, coffee like aftertaste. Body feels heavy, creamy, soft and the carbonation is just right, making it very drinkable. Overall a very nice stout, a good rendition of the style.

Celkem dobry stout, ale neshledal jsem ho byt nicim vyjimecny. Toceny guiness v pubu byl predevcirem lepsi. Lahvac z pivonky.

andriesradu (452) - 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.
