It seems that everytime I tried this one, I was horribly disapointed. However, after having a few pints off of a fresh keg on clean lines, I now find that I really like this beer. Creamy, sweet vanilla aroma. Lots of flaked grain and chocolate flavors. Creamy - like a chocolate milkshake. Other times I've tried this the lactose sourness has been the predominant flavor - not this time though.

Zapach kawy i czekolady. Bardzo ciemno brązowa barwa, prawie nieprzezroczysty. Beżowa, obfita, trwała piana. Nieźle oblepia szkło. W smaku wytrawne, przeciętnie nasycone. Fajne piwo.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Almost black, strong gray-brown head. Lovely chocolate and roasted malt on the nose. Sweet - but balanced - taste with hints of chocolate and a lovely bitter cocoa finish. This is just what the approaching winter requires. Just lovely.
