The beer has all the looks a stout should have. On the eye the beer is pitch black. Strong light reveals a ruby red color. The beer seems clear in this strong light. On top of the beer, a tiny drape of light brown foam is formed. It’s an extremely little amount of foam. The smell of the beer is good. It’s a little mild though. I smell some delicious chocolate and caramel aromas of dark roasted barley. This pleasant aroma really invites to take a sip of beer. The dark roast aroma is really rich and fills almost the I tire smell. There are some sweet aromas though, again of chocolate but also of raisins. The taste is a bit steronger than the smell. It has the same lovely chocolate and caramel roast aromas together with a raisin sweetness. The balance is great. The beer is a little by watery though. The taste and the smell could have been a bit stronger. The taste also has a tiny unpleasant touch of metal. The palate is good, but the bubles are just a bit to small. This gives the beer a watery feeling. All in all, a nice beer but there is room for improvement. Bullit (4801) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 28, 2016

Bottle at home shared by me. Very dark brown with very fizzy and short lasting beige head. Looks almost like cola. Sweet milk chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, roasted nuts, toast. Over medium sweet with light roasted and hoppy bitterness. Medium bodied with slick feel. Decent. Stuu666 (15248) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 23, 2015
