50 cl bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika. Pours very dark brown with some ruby tones. Medium creamy brown head that leaves a good lacing. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Medium body and a light bitterness. Good one but not that complex.

Bottiglia 500 ml. Nera con ricca schiuma beige, al naso malto tostato e caffè. In bocca percepisco malto, caffè, cioccolato fondente. Bassa carbonazione, corpo medio, allaccio al bicchiere.

Sjohnh (773) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2016
Nice and dark, though I didn’t get any lasting head or lacing. Body is indeed smooth and creamy, with just enough carbonation to keep it interesting. Aroma begins with mild chocolate, then the orange comes through. Flavour is roasted malt, caramel, orange and very subtle spice. Very good.

Tognetta (743) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - MAY 9, 2016
Negra, opaca, espuma marrom de boa formação e persistência. Aroma bastante achocolatado, cacau, baunilha. Paladar de leve amargor torrado, baixo dulçor, leve acidez. Corpo e carbonatação médios. Final de média persistência trás mais do torrado, café, deixando o chocolate mais para o aroma. Um pouco mais aguada que o esperado, mas razoável/boa.

Graham77 (435) - SCOTLAND - APR 23, 2016
500ml bottle. Appearance of a typical black stout, latte head, lots of lacing. Aroma is dominated by chocolate, then toast and some fruit. Smooth, full bodied, light/medium carbonation. Always been a favorite.

Aroma leve de chocolate e caramelo. Ótimo corpo. Carbonatação média. Porém achei que o sabor do álcool se sobressaiu.

Bottle from ALDI. Pours with a decent head that disappeared quickly. Coffee aroma is strong, Taste is more toffee. Smooth on the palate like most Williams beers. Nice tea time stout
