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.

Estebanik (829) - Lublin, POLAND - DEC 5, 2016
Piana dość ładna, drobna, opadając dość gęsto zdobi szkło. W aromacie sporo mocnej paloności, nutka gorzkiej czekolady, jest też jakiś mniej przyjemny, szczypiorkowy akcent. W smaku jest dość mocno palone, może minimalnie przez to kwaskowate, troszkę lukrecji. Dość sporo ciała, całkiem fajna, gładka faktura, której niestety nie pozwala rozwinąć skrzydeł zbyt wysokie wysycenie. Długi, palony posmak. Przeciętniak niestety.

kajser27 (1490) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 30, 2016
Black colored, dark tan small creamy head with nice lacing. Aroma is of chocolate, some roasted malt, bit roasty acidity, burnt notes, licorice. Taste is medium sweet malt, caramel, loads of roasted malt and quite chocolatey, some licorice, bit roasty acidity, bit burnt, milky, medium+ roasted bitterness and a dry finish. Medium bodied, soft- carbonation, creamy-milky. Good but had much higher expectations... (bottle, Pivoljub Ljubljana)

kaserov (294) - Oviedo, SPAIN - NOV 25, 2016
Color negro, opaco, con capa de espuma marrón de dos dedos de grosor (no mucha retención). Carbonatación imperceptible. Muy cremosa. Aroma dulzón, a caramelo, a café, a malta torrefacta, algo de chocolate... El sabor es dulce (en boca), con presencia de las maltas torrefactas y algo de chocolate; al tragar se convierte en un amargor mínimo. Lo que me interesa de verdad es el regusto a café amargo que queda en boca entre trago y trago (me parece lo más reseńable de una cerveza que, si bien es innegablemente buena, no llega a las cotas esperadas).

Defreni (3063) - Husum, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2016
Flaske: Sortbrunřl med et fint skumhoved. Rigtig stor mundfylde med en del brćndthed. Sřdmen er ikke sĺ udtalt. Rigtig flot řl men det er bare som om normale stout ikke gřr det sĺ meget for mig mere.

Bottle from Malting Pot. Black, small tan head. Aroma chocolate, coffee, malt, hazelnuts. Medium body, smooth texture. Taste moderately sweet with some background bitterness, which lingers on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
