COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a full-bodied stout with plenty of roast flavor as well as hints of molasses and chocolate. Ridiculous amounts of black and caramel malts make this stout smooth, creamy, and utterly opaque.

KW92 (1426) - Warszawa, POLAND - FEB 9, 2017

Butelka z datą: 5/18/16
AROMAT: Średnio intensywny. Z początku wyczuwalne nuty prażone. Na drugim planie czekolada i kawa. W tle orzechy arachidowe oraz delikatna paloność.
SMAK: Wytrawne. Posmak gorzkiej czekolady i kawy - długi. Odczucie w ustach: pełne, aksamitne, choć delikatnie szczypie w język. Alkohol, jak to w ciemnych piwach słabo wyczuwalny, a w tym przypadku jest on bardzo dobrze ukryty.
WYGLĄD: Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzyste. Piana drobna, niska, choć utrzymuje się do samego końca.
OG”LNIE: Trzy wnioski. Po pierwsze: trzeba je dobrze "ogrzać" przed degustacją. Po drugie: trzeba dać mu szanse (tyczy się aromatu) i ocenić go po pewnym czasie, ponieważ z początku piwo (tak było w moim przypadku) nie pachniało tak dobrze, jak sugerował by jego status na ratebeer. Po trzecie: smak piwa wynagradza początkowe niedostatki w zapachu, a tym samym potwierdza renomę Kalamazoo Stout.

Szulo (40) - P≥ock, POLAND - FEB 9, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2017 Po przelaniu do szkła czarne, zupełnie nieprzejrzyste z drobnopęcherzykową beżową pianą, ktůra dosyć szybko ustępuje. W aromacie dominuje kawa, czekolada, nieco popiołowych nut i karmelu. Po przełknięciu pojawia się dużo paloności, popiołu i na końcu dopiero kawa z karmelem co mi akurat bardzo odpowiada. Dosyć gładkie i kremowe. Bardzo dobre piwo reprezentujące wysoki poziom.

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, liquorice, chocolate, mocha, bread and roasted malts.

Appearance:
Opaque black beer with a medium dark brown head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, liquorice, chocolate and mocha; ends slightly bitter and dry with bread and roasted malts.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. Great flavour, especially for its abv, that does everything right. At the same time, it feels like it misses some umpf at all times; maybe some added vanilla, chocolate, coffee or even more hops. The aroma could have been stronger as well. Great stout overall with only some minor disappointments.

Bottle from Sake no Taniguchi. Nice black pour with a low tan head, plenty of lacing. Licorice, bitter dark chocolate, and coffee aroma. Good full flavour of roasted malts, coffee, licorice, caramel, bakers chocolate. Plenty of bitterness smoothed out by the malts and nice easy carbonation, medium body for easy drinking. Delicious rich stout.

Piwo w kolorze brunatnym z obfita bezowa sredniopecherzykowa piana zostawiajaca ladny lacing na szkle. W aromacie kawa i czekolada z palonymi nutami. W smaku gladkie i pijalne, polslodkie z wysyceniem i goryczka na srednim poziomie. Fajnie ulozony i dobrze zbalansowyany stout.

adasko (2162) - Poznan, POLAND - FEB 2, 2017
Nice thick, dense, roasted aroma, full of coffee, chocolate notes with a touch of bread-ish notes. Pure elegance, super dignified. And then thereís a taste which is even more roasted, more full of coffee. Itís not that delicate and polite. Itís rough, agressive. You cannot miskate it with anything else - it might be like a definition of super well made, almost classical stout. On thing I donít like about it is the carbonation, which is huge, bothers the palate to much. Except that itís almost full bodied, smooth beer. In overall it really is gorgeous product!
