Jak na stout dobry, jak na piwo od braci Williamsów też dobre, ale dlaczego nie jest bardzo dobre? Smak jak stout palony ale niezbyt mocny, tu oczekiwałem więcej tych nut, piana średnia i raczej mało trwała. Finisz taki jaki oczekiwałem gożki i wytrawny, przez które przebijają się nuty palone i przyprawy typu kolendra. Tak więc finisz zdecydowanie najlepszy był w tym piwie.

Opaque dark brown - black beer, tidy pale tan head. Palate is light. Mellow dark malt, tangy with a touch of roast. Mild bubblegum ester. Dry finish. Okay.

ThirstyBird (1489) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - FEB 22, 2013
Pours opaque black/brown with a brown head that falls to a skim. Smell is roasted malt, chocolate, molasses. The taste is roasty and dry, a bit of bitter chocolate. It ends dry, roasty and slightly bitter. The body is medium and the carbonation is active and finely structured - pretty smooth. Overall a decent beer that boast a lot of roast.

JKaranka (46) - Cardiff, WALES - FEB 19, 2013
Nice penguin looks to it, very black and white. Stouty aroma with fairly stouty smooth flavour. Nice roast barley kick with some sweet to smooth it up, and a good dose of fruit. Actually, this is surprisingly spicy and fruity for a stout-like beer.

Benzai (7342) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 13, 2013
50cl bottle @ home. Opaque pitch black color, medium sized light brown head that leaves fair to good lacing. Aroma of malts, chocolate, lightly hops, lightly a citrus touch and some roastyness. Taste malts, barley, roastyness, slightly liquorice, light to moderately orange peel. Medium body, low to medium carbonation.

mighty_meadow (167) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - FEB 9, 2013
Dark, malty chocolate, Beige head. Nice lacing. Quite cream tasting although slightly watery. Coriander and orange come through at the finish. Nice but a bit too carbonated for me.
