4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Exceptional for a regular sweet stout. Opaque black with a thin tan head. Aroma of coffee, caramel, roaste dmalt, some vanilla. Palate is very thick and silky. Flavor is sweet, but not cloying. Lots of roast and bitter chocolate. Some caramel malt, coffee, slight hops, and lots of residual (I think lactose) sugars. Finishes nice and clean with a bit of lingering sweetness.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, pours dark treacle brown, not much head, small off white lace. Aroma is a complex mixture of caramel, treacle, chocolate, roast, smoke, prune and raisin. Body is medium full, texture is full and viscous. Donít think this needs to come out of the fridge, added complexity as it warms. Finish has great balance, with light malt sweetness which dried. Soft to flat carbonation.

"Ridiculous amounts of black and caramel malts" - which must have been brewed right to perfection for this only 6-percenter so packed with aroma and flavor and with such a perfect balance of roast and chocolate, bitter and sweet, licorice and coffee, and a superb mouthfeel. Oh wow!

Truly an enjoyable drink. Licorice is light and perfect at the back end. Had never heard of brewers licorice before. What a find!!!!

Not my favorite stout. It has a bit of a bit and I think you could do better than this one.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pi?knie i intensywnie w aromacie. Mnůstwo kakao. Troch? kawy i orzechůw. Barwa czarna i niska, be?owa obr?czka. W smaku ju? nie jest tak dobrze. Pierwsze wra?enie dosy? wodniste. Wybija si? kawa, brakuje kakao. Gorzka czekolada. Goryczka czekoladowa, dobrze zbalansowane ale brakuje porz?dniejszego finiszu. Troch? sie rozczarowa?em.

Pours a dark black with a nice creamy tan head that left some beautiful lacing around the glass. The aroma is chocolate, lots of coffee, medium to heavy roasted barley malts and brown bread. The flavor is more of the same. The mouthfeel is light to medium and drinkability is quite high.
