Can @ home. Black with a large beige head. Taste is of roasted malts, chocolate and a touch of fruits. Very smooth with a slightly dry aftertaste. The cask version is sightly better than it is on can, but despite its watery texture it is quite drinkable. This is IMHO as good as a Guinness.

Bitek (523) - Warszawa, POLAND - OCT 23, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2016 Prezentuje się nieźle. W aromacie i w smaku dominuje paloność, w tle czekolada i trochę niezbyt mocnej kawy. Mało ciała, wodniste, lekkie.

ogivlado (7311) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 12, 2016
On tap at Harats Zagreb. Black coloured, medium sized creamy off-white head, mild chocolate in the nose. Light chocolate and notes of cocoa with rather watery palate. Mild finish, easy-drinkable but lack of body is evident. Pitty.

440mL nitro can, pours black with a large tan head. Aroma brings out notes of oats, toasted bread and dry bitter cocoa. Flavour brings out dry bitter cocoa, oats and toasted bread. Creamy palate, with a bitter astringency on the finish. Nothing special but its decent.

ClarkVV (6066) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 16, 2016
Draught at The Haven, 9/9/16.
Clear, dark mahogany with crimson/magenta highlights and a beige head atop, medium-sized and showing moderate retention.
Not a ton going on in the nose, though conversely, its not flawed either. Lightly lactic roast character mixes with mineral water, hints of vanilla and a gentle, fairly playful fruitiness (apples, strawberries, etc...). No alcohol noted.
Very easygoing, watery, dry stout with watery coffee notes, very light chocolate, mild fruitiness and hints of vanilla and straw. Clean and easy-drinking with a touch of acidity on the finish.

Marko (5148) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 15, 2016
On tap at Harats, Zagreb. Very dark brown, pretty much black, off white nitro head. Malty aroma, raisins. Taste... Toasty, caramel malt, light metallic touch, raisin. OK, pretty much a standard stout, nothing great, nothing bad.

minutemat (4636) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2016
500ml bottle @ Loch Fyne, Shrewsbury. Pours black, very thin off-white head that dissipates to nothing. Aroma presents some cocoa, lightly sweet malts, treacle. Taste continues with a fairly light mouthfeel, light roast, pleasant sweetness, a little oily. Not bad, a good table stout.

natesSI (4) - SLOVENIA - AUG 11, 2016 does not count
First smell after popping the cap is roasted coffee but after pouring it into a glass that somewhat fades. The beer is very dark as expected and the foam is thick when pouring but fades away rather quickly. The taste is kinda smoky with hints of coffee and nuts. Its not bitter as i expected and leaves a pretty mellow aftertaste.
