Pours dark with a red tinge. Strong tan head. Malty aromas with strong chocolate flavour and some earthy and floral aromas. Silky smooth and creamy. A nice drop

mrhopsbeertalk (131) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 1, 2014
The aroma is malty with notes of chocolate, coffee and earthy/floral hops. The flavor is packed with cocoa and chocolate, some coffee and just a hint of toasted toffee from the malt. The mouthfeel is creamy and soft. Finishes both sweet and bitter, crisp. Solid sweet stout.

car13many (40) - POLAND - AUG 31, 2014
Zapach kawy i czekolady. Bardzo ciemno brązowa barwa, prawie nieprzezroczysty. Beżowa, obfita, trwała piana. Nieźle oblepia szkło. W smaku wytrawne, przeciętnie nasycone. Fajne piwo.

swesson (223) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - AUG 30, 2014
From a 500 ml bottle. Pots an inky opaque black and makes a dark beige head. Smells of chocolate goodness and cocoa and malt. Very sweet taste with a cocoa bitter aftertaste. Not a big substantial stout. Feels like a porter. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

janubio (406) - SPAIN - AUG 30, 2014
500 ml. bottle. Served in pint glass, pours a dark colour, with red hints when held to the light. Rch and creamy biege head, leaving a beige lace. Smell of mocca, chocolate, candy and dark fruits, maybe coriander. Rich and creamy too in the palate, not much carbonation, and no needed. Taste is like the smell: chocolate, mocca, dark fruits. And alcohol.

Hidden_Pooch (295) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - AUG 27, 2014
Yikes this was way too chocolatey. Poured black with small tan head. Aroma was extremely chocolatey with coffee as well. Tasted of crazy amount of chocolate, basically chocolate milk and alcohol. Had a medium body with low carbonation and a unpleasant candy stuck to your teeth feel. Was definitely an overly sweet experience.

chinchill (1811) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Pint nitro can served in a pint glass. Generous, durable and creamy tan head covers a near-black, opaque body. Flavor has a rich, well-balanced mix of dark roasted malts and dark chocolate. Mildly bitter. Creamy smooth mouthfeel is a tad thin.

Mouth: coffee, dark chocolate, mocca and dark dryed fruit, raisins and coriander. Palate: coffee, roasted malts and spices. Overall: nice stout. bit watery though but nice taste of mocca

Bottle 0.5 l. Cloudy dark brown liquid. Average tan head. Medium body, medium to heavy carbonation. Light sweetness, medium bitterness. Dark chocolate aroma. Well balanced and drinkable. A bit too carbonated.
