Tall, brown, stiff and lasting head, deep copper. Intense, complex nose. Medium body and flavor, well carbonated, smooth texturec crisp mouthfeel, avg length. High acidity, moderate bitterness, off dry. Roast flavors, chocolate, yeasty. Interesting but rather dry and lean, not my favorite style of stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Austin_Ripper (56) - Iowa, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Deep dark color, creamy tan head. Smells like chocolate and a little bit of coffee. Taste is mostly sweet with a bit of a bitter bite at the end of it. Very good beer that doesn’t cost you your right arm.

Bottle. Pours deep brown with tan head. Smells like rich milk chocolate. Maybe a little dark fruit. Taste adds just a little bitterness. Let it warm up first.

It is a perfect beer. There is a good connection between the chocolate, cacao and the bitterness and the hop. One of my favourite beer and the taste is simply perfect. The colour is typical for this beer.

ksiwzos (88) - GREECE - JUN 15, 2015
Darnk brown, opaque, almost black with medium dense light brown head. Aroma is dark roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla notes, chocolate liquer, nice but not very complex. Taste is ballanced, mainly roasted malts, some chocolate. Aftertaste is light bitter from roasted malts and hops, a bit dryer than expected.

Sample på Annas ölprovning. Krämig och god Stout. Det går att hitta chokladtoner i drycken! Gott.

jamaty (1234) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 7, 2015
Negra opaca. Dos dedos de espuma tostada. Aroma puro a chocolate, grande. Y en boca una excelente combinación de chocolate por todos los lados junto con malta, para acabar en un final seco y un postgusto entre café y de nuevo chocolate. Merece la pena salvo que puede resultar un tanto. cansina.
