Pours into glass tar black with a lovely brown head that dissipates quickly. Leaves behind brown sticky lacing with small bubbles around the glass.
Doesn't have a strong ale... In fact you might have to shove your nose into the glass to smell it. When you do get close enough... Chocolate truffle, vanilla, caramel, and roasted barley.
The taste... The taste is amazing. This is a stout. You notice just how smooth this brew is... The chocolate and vanilla notes dance on your tongue with the malt and barely emerging at the end. Just the right carbonation. No bite or sting. There is a nice balance of malt and finishing hops here.
Probably, personally, one of the best stouts I've ever had.

Bottled, 330ml at The Bookbinders, Oxford Jericho. Black with tan head. This proved to be a rich, darkly roasted full beer, liquorice and coffee notes on the palate, deep and silky. There is a late bitterness which adds to the beer. Very decent. Dazka (164) - Milan, ITALY - OCT 13, 2017

Aroma: roasted malt, smoky notes & raisins. Opaque, almost black colour with creamy beige head. Tastes sweet with noticeable but pleasant alcohol and sour notes, mildly bitter. Medium bodied palate,watery a bit, over-carbonated. Overall, a good but not perfect stout. homeini (326) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 21, 2017
Uzupełnienie z notatek. Klasyczny stout, ale bardzo wodnisty. Strasznie brakuje ciała. Może za to służyć, jako wysokoprocentowa cola. artyom (1173) - Osijek, CROATIA - MAR 28, 2017
