Navers (156) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUL 1, 2017
Bottle from Valhalla’s Goat, Glasgow. Beer served in 18°C, Wine Glass. Pours opaque black, very dark brown when looking in the sunlight. Nice medium head. Delightful smell of confiture, black roasted malt, dried forest fruits. Flavor is rich and smooth, slick, roastiness, dried plums and cherries, bitter and smoked cocoa. One of my favourites to enjoy while spending long evenings or in a cold season. RickFifty (1254) - Fredrikstad, NORWAY - JUN 30, 2017
Mahogany color, beige head. Malty nose, fruity yeast, burnt sugar, hint of licorice. Sweet malty taste, brown sugar, bread, coffee, hint of licorice. Full body, soft carbonation. NikitaDE (87) - Minsk / Schweinfurt, Bavaria, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2017

Dark brown colour, almost black. The foam is lushly and pretty stable. Interesting smell: coffee, chocolate, toffee, fruits and bit kvass even. Taste is mostly coffee, roasted bread, caramel. And in the palate, very pickling the tongue the existence of some malts, also roasted notes, a bit dry.
Very good, but not my beer style. DavyK (135) - East Kilbride, SCOTLAND - JUN 15, 2017
Bottle from Redmond’s. Delightful stuff. Burnt cocoa is prominent, some malt and caramel as well. Depth is great, smooth mouthfeel as well. As your glass goes down and it takes on a bit more heat, extra layers (sweetness especially) come out...but the bitterness of this guy means it was delightful straight out the fridge, whereas I often find this style of beer really wants to be a bit warmer than it’s often served. rob19a (352) - - JUN 11, 2017
15/20 A bit like a Belgian dark beer. Lots of flavour with chocolate notes.

Aroma of coffee and malt. Taste of coffee, caramel and oak. Medium heavy body. Enjoyable. vbaudry (153) - - JUN 10, 2017
Robe is very dark, thin white head.
Nose on caramel but with a white-y creamy note, not too sweet.
Attack is light, bubbles turn into a creamy texture immediately, body is medium. Palate on cream and caramel. Cream coats the palate. Very gourmand, and still not really sweet.
Finish is light and gourmand, bitterness is almost imperceptible.
Very nice. Garrold (5273) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2017
Bottle. Mitchell’s Wines, Sheffield. Clear, dark ruby red. Tight, lasting, leggy, beige head. Nose has mix up Sunday vine fruits. Some plum stone. Some prune. Some yeasty, granary bread malts. Vinous and malty. Taste is sweet and vinous. Some light bitterness. Mouthfeel is perfect. Smooth and silky. Foamy carbonation. Dry toward the finish, with soft, fruity sweetness. Very nice. jrh2254 (116) - burton-on-trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2017
From a Christmas case. Pours dark brown. Like malty sticky toffee pudding.

Drunk cold, it was rather one-dimensionally boozy over-roasted malt, though it improves dramatically at around 55-60 degrees. Definitely good but perhaps not on the level it appears to be (11.2 oz bottle, Tallinn)
