UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 Bottle… This beer rocks!… Pitch black ale with a small, creamy, light brown head. Good retention. The nose imparts rich, dark, earthy notes of cocoa nibs, ground espresso and pine. Full-bodied and creamy with tickling carbonation. Sweet, chocolaty flavor. A touch vinous and nutty. Chocolaty finish. Many thanks to Grovlam for providing this world class stout! Madsnp (933) - DENMARK - MAR 31, 2009

Bottle: As blach as ink, big insoluble tanned head; sweet chocolatey nose, sweaty leather and dried fruits included; full bodied, nevertheless soft and silky; very solid dryish bitter flavour; long and longer drier roasty and fruity finish. Really a great beer.....

Flavors of dry earthy cocoa, berries with cream, ash, dirty orange, dark coffee and plum. Medium-heavy body has medium carbonation and is slightly sticky, but finishes dry with acidity from both hops and roast. mkel07 (6406) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 21, 2012
