DSG (8175) - Tel Aviv, - JUL 3, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks troubles. Black. Aroma of dark chocolate and cocoa, somewhat roasty. Roasty flavor with chocolate, a bit of dark fruits hints, a bit of sweetness and a slightly bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Decent.

serjaymz (105) - Istanbul, TURKEY - JUL 2, 2013
50cl, Şişe, Türkiye. Simsiyah bir renk, kahverengi kalıcı olmayan bir köpük. görünüm iyi. Koku karamel, kavrulmuş arpa ve kahve tonları içeriyor. İçin oldukça yumuşak ve ağırlıklı karamel, hafif (sert değil) kahve.. Çok kompleks değil. Dengeli bir Stout.

The_Osprey (2919) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2013
Black pour, decent foamy head endures. Mostly opaque colour but a slight red tinge. Smell is very interesting - mostly aniseed to start with some liquorice, spice and smoke coming through. Smell is complex, and it’s the best aspect of the beer. Taste is mainly chocolatey, but it’s not a very intense or complex taste. Mouthfeel is semi-foamy. Decent beer overall.

Bottle. Chocolate orange aroma. Flavour is rich and creamy chocolate, liqourice and more orange with a bitter coffee finish. A good stout.

Karol (685) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 26, 2013
A very good stout! What a pleasant surprise. The previous stout Williams Bros Black was weaker than this. This one has more body and the higher alcohol provides a better experience. This is a very tasty stout!

imdownthepub (11197) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2013
Bottled, 500ml from Tesco, Uttoxeter, Staffs. Dark brown with cream head. Quite a rich malty, roasty beer, decent fullish palate with a liquorice aftertaste. Good depth, liked it.

# 3302 ersma: die brauerei mag ich, weil sie gerne zutaten verwendet, die nicht dem reinheitsgebot entsprechen, aber stets sehr gut zu den bieren passen. in diesem fall koriander und orangenschalen. tiefschwarz mit mittelviel, eher flüchtigem schaum. der geruch ist röstmalzig mit lakritz, kaffe und gebrannten nüssen. der antrunk ist ebenso röstmalzig mit aromen von kaffee, lakritz und dörrpflaume. die mitte bringt einen schwung hopfen mit, dessen herbe die aromen unterstreicht. der abgang bringt mehr malzigkeit mit, bei deutlicher herbe. noten von kaffe und sehr dezenter fruchtigkeit (die orangenschalen?). koriander schmeck ich nicht wirklich heraus. die flasche ist ansehnlich. fazit: rundes stout mit merkwürdigem namen. probierenswert. 10,12,11,11,12,11 - 10,95 - 9/5

AshtonMcCobb (3674) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 15, 2013
50cl bottle at the Waiting Room, Edinburgh. Pours opaque black with a nice fawn head. The nose has chocolate orange with some nuttiness. The taste confirms this. The palate is medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly elegant finish. Overall, a tasty beer.
