Bottle 23.2.14. Lovely dark velvety stout with a pleasant round sweet chocolate, stouty smell. Settles very pleasantly and looks fantastic. The taste is slightly lighter than expected, with clear chocolate and coffee malty texture which lifts off the tongue relatively fast. Slightly too sweet for my taste, and the bitterness and chocolate don’t quite sing from the same hymnsheet. Nice long palate where both chocolate and coffee can be detected, but the taste isn’t quite deep and full enough for this to be top class.

Bottle from Edeka Mohr. Tar black color, with a decent head. Roasted, sweet malt aromas, hints of fig and chocolate. Very creamy, smooth stout. A bit on the sweeter side, with bitter chocolate, and again, lots of cream. Carbonation is a little too high, distracts from the smooth overall impression. Chocolate becomes very flashy in the end, mingles well together with coffee notes. Metallic carbonation is still a little unpleasant. Creamy, bitter, long lasting aftertaste.

De brända tonerna smyger i bakgrunden och choklad. Något vattnig och tråkig annars och ingen beska.

Bottle. Pours a Dark Black. Aroma. Aroma is one of Bitter Espresso with a backing with sweetness. Taste. Very smooth and creamy, can taste chocolate and espresso with little sweetness and a slight bitterness. Overall. whilst still being a good beer, i really don’t get the hype.

Cerveja bem escura com aroma leve de chocolate amargo, suave amargor final apesar do gosto forte e marcante com tons sutis de chocolate. Boa pra quem gosta de cervejas fortes, aprovada.

500 ml bottle. Pours jet black with minimal head. Nice strong chocolate and coffee aroma. Malty. Something about the scent faintly reminds me of soya sauce. Semisweet up front, mellow and chocolatey in the middle and a fairly bitter finish. Nice lacing. Excellent pairing for an extra sweet dessert.

Pours a smooth black with light creamy head that persists to the last sip. Excellent lacing. Very smooth and creamy, exceptionally light. The chocolate is more an after thought and not upfront like a lot of stouts but prevalent enough to give a great rounded taste, maybe also picking up notes of vanilla. After it warmed up a bit the flavors really jumped out. Good beer for a snowy Winter day by the fire.
