black with a very thin brownish head, probably served much too cold in the bar I ordered this. Aroma is malt ,coffee, roast.. Flavor is dark chocolate, hops, hints of espresso. The aftertaste is way too roasty for my taste though. It´s possible i would rate this a tad higher if i´d drunk this at the right temperature.

Gurthnar (4780) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 29, 2016
Tap at Craft Bier Fest Wien. Slightly too carbonated but otherwise it is a very good stout. Strong assertive roastiness, coffee and cocoa. Moderate balancing caramel. Slightly plainly roasty, but good at that.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2015 This is a bold beer. It has an almost black body, brown foam and a taste of chocolate and toffee. The taste of its creamy body reminded me of chocolate, coffee und caramel. Very drinkable, but heavy - although ist only has 5,5% alcohol. Bottle (past due date but declared so and sold at a reduced price) bought at Bierboutique Graz.

Black, non transparent, tan medium creamy head. Aroma is milk chocolate, dark chocolate, roasted coffee. Taste is medium to low sweet caramel, chocolate, bitter chocolate, some herbal grassy hops, bit of roasted malt acidity and a dry coffee bitter finish. Dark chocolate aftertaste but some acidity also. Medium bodied and carbonation. Roasted acidity brings it down unfortunately. (bottle Beer Store Vienna, Vienna, A)

Sebilinz (1682) - Linz, AUSTRIA - MAR 5, 2015
Bottle. Black body no head and very low carbonation. Aroma is roasted malts with some coffee. Taste is also roasted malts with some sourness and hints of cocoa and some dried fruits. Aftertaste is medium bitter a little bit sour, and some alcohol. O.K. Stout. I think I will re rate this because of the lost carbonation.

Erzengel (7385) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 13, 2015
Many thanks to Werckmeister for this bottle! Best before 05.06.15. Very thick and dark in the glass, malty intense nose. The beer starts fresh but intense. Lots of roast, very dry with a nice stout-typical sourness in the aftertaste. Smooth, very dry-dusty, rich dark roasted espresso, very smooth. Deep with hints of dark fruit, which harmonise great with the smooth heavy roasted chocolate/coffee aroma. The aftertaste has hints of sourness and is highly drinkable. Heavy roast together with a smooth-mild flavour! Moderate bitterness there, not too intense but round. Great Stout!
