This stout smells roasty and chocolate malty, with some coffee in there. Jet black in color, dark tan, frothy head. Taste is mildly salty & bitter with coffee flavor- light chocolate sweetness. Smooth texture with medium body and carbonation hauxe (1097) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - MAR 17, 2018
Bottle thanks to wombat23. Pours thick and black with a creamy, tan head. Aroma is intense dark chocolate, licorice. Taste is tart up front, full of unripe plum and berry but set against a strong, chewy undertone of chocolate and roasted malt. Finishes much the same, but a bit sweeter. The aftertaste is again tart with a roasted bitterness. Body is thick and chewy, quite sticky. Overall, very good. Nice to have this again after an interval of nearly 20 years. rob19a (603) - - MAR 13, 2018

Obłędny aromat - czekolada z mieszanką karmelu i wanilii. W smaku czekolada, wanilia, karmel. Słodkie i jednocześnie goryczkowe, dość konkretne (ciało). Pięknie się pije i pięknie smakuje. matbli (528) - Poznan, POLAND - MAR 2, 2018
