FireGlider (325) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 15, 2015
On tap at Sir Williams pub Ljubljana. Black color with medium brown lasting head. Nice chocolate palate aroma. Little too light aroma for my taste. But easy to drink. More milk stout than regular stout.

Dark brown colour with almost no head. Aroma without note of an alcohol, with hints of roasted malts, chocolate, and with some floral elements. Flavor is similar; without note of an alcohol, with sweet, but at the same time bitter notes: of sugar and dark chocolate. Finish is slightly bitter dry. Malt sweetness is medium, hop bitteness also. body is sticky, carbonation low.

Another beast on tap compared to the bottled one. That kind of "Guinness" appearance: black with the creamy type head. Strong aroma of dark chocolate that dominates the taste with a beautiful hoppy finish. A great stout!

Wow.. I was so hyped up and ready to try this "Famous" stout.. wrong right from the pallet I had a HUGE malty/ Watery taste. Aroma wasn’t even nice. Maybe I got a bad batch I’m not sure I usually don’t give bad rates but wow...

Nice chocolate stout. Nice rich aromas and colors. The taste is also quite nice but it's has a bitter and watery-ness that let's you know it's from a larger brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

An enjoyable dark beer with big tastes of chocolate and coffee. Just the ticket to end a meal or tasting session.

Very chocolaty and sweet. Like an alcoholic milkshake. Taste is good but marks off because I don’t want milkshake , I want beer. If you are 16 and want to get your girlfriend drunk, this would be a good start.
