Piwo koloru czarnego z beżową pianą. W aromacie mleczna czekolada, czekoladowe ciastko, delikatne suszone owoce. W smaku kawa, gorzka czekolada, paloność. Po przełknięciu na podniebieniu zostaje posmak lukrecji. Fajne gładkie i kremowe ciało, wysycenie średnie. Ogólnie ciekawy stout. Ronritter (836) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 9, 2017

(Bottle, 0.355 l - bottled on 5/18/16, from Sip Tartu, 20170907) The beer poured black. Its head was medium sized and lightly brown. Aroma had burnt malts, sweetness and liquorice. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were burnt malts, sweetness, liquorice, ash and bitterness. Aftertaste was burnt, ashy and bitter. Despite the strong burntness the end result was nicely balanced. kevinator (2395) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUL 25, 2017
Great stout. Strong aroma and flavor of roasted malt, chocolate, molasses with a slight sweetness. Smooth and full. Very dark.

35,5cl bottle from Sip, Tallinn. Pours close to black with a fairly modest, but lasting, beige head. Roasty aroma with dark chocolate, licorice, dark fruits and hints of spices. Medium sweet with lovely, complex roasty flavours and a pleasant bitterness in the finish. Delicious and very enjoyable. Bufordbrewer (48) - Georgia, USA - JUL 18, 2017
Chocolate, coffee, roasty malts. A touch of vanilla. Resin profile from the hops. Well balanced between the malt sweetness and lingering hop bitterness. I’m not getting the licorice, although this sample is near the end of life at 6 months. Nevertheless, this is a superb stout even with expiring life. Black, tan foam, medium sweetness, medium bitterness, full body, and somewhat creamy. Bell’s has another winner. evjoker (15) - - JUL 12, 2017
Not quite as good as the expedition. Dark and creamy but doesn't last long on the tongue.

From cask. Black pour with a thin brown head. Aromas of roasted malt, chicolate, mocha, brown sugar. Lots going on in the glass - molasses, dark chocolate, heavy roasted notes. The body is creamy and supple. Lingering roasty finish, just delicious. hawthorne00 (4028) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 5, 2017
Bottle, 11C. Black with a fat coat of tan head. Fudgy aroma with mocha, black strap, anise and other spices. Silky, fullish bodied. Low carbonation. Not all that sweet with mocha, some molasses, surprisingly modest roasted flavours , licorice becomes more prominent towards the fairly bitter end. A slight creamy/ brioche return right at the end fattens it out nicely. Complex , interesting, good. Might be a grower.
