Black pour with a very thin tan head. Chocolate, roasty, coffee aromas dominate. Thick mouthfeel before you even really get the taste, oily, dark chocolate and coffee, a little burnt toast, ashy taste. FatPhil (17077) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 1, 2016
330ml bottle (Viking Line) (7+:5:6:3:13=3.4+)mateuszk (2769) - Poznań, POLAND - AUG 28, 2016
RIch sweetish roast aroma, a little dusty, once the head settles some nice darkish milk chocolate comes over, even a little bit of smoky bacon fat as time goes on. Poured beautifully - jet black in this bulb of a glass and with a huge persistent spongy beige head - looks like a real ale I poured myself. Palate is a little harsh, ashy, a bit dusty and acidic from that. Very deep roast, some almondiness, and alas a bit of alcohol too. I did have this a few weeks back and it was fuller and smoother, perhaps a bit sweeter. Finish here is ashy and acidic, and almost harsh.
Bottle. Black with brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, ash and coffee. In taste classic stout notes followed by pine from hops. Medium body, soft carbonation, roasty and bitter in the finish. fantti (1033) - FINLAND - AUG 24, 2016
Pullo @ Viking Gabriella. Kaatuu snifteriin mustana, noin kahden sormen paksuisella kuohkealla ja tiiviillä vaahdolla. Tuoksusta löytyy kahvista paahdetta, mutta reilummin on tummaa luumuista hedelmää ja suklaata, salmiakkiakin on hieman joukossa. Hedelmäisyys kääntyy jopa makean hilloisen marjaisuuden suuntaan. Maussa kahvinen paahde nousee vahvimpana esiin, alussa on reilusti myös suklaata. Luumuisuuttakin on, mutta se on taka-alalla sokerisen marjaisuuden kanssa. Suutuntuma on melko täyteläinen ja napakan humaloitu, joka tekee tästä hieman agressiivisen ja hyökkäävän. Täyteläinen ja suht monimuotoinen stout, jossa on melko hyvin saatu makeus ja paahde tasapainoon. mice (1043) - FINLAND - JUL 21, 2016
Hyvin tummanruskea olut vaahtoaa vähäisesti. Tuoksu on makean matainen, limppuinen ja paahteisen kahvinen. Oikein herkullinen ja pehmeä kokonaisuus. Maku on kuivempi ja katkerampi, hivenen kahvinen.

8% ABV. Dry, slightly bitter. Pretty full body. Taste is slight bitter, with a lot of roasted malt, almost burnt, charcoaled wood. Classic aromas like coffee and chocolate is present as well. Quite good all in all. Marstonlad (955) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 1, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2016 Bottle from Viking XPRS boat Helsinki-Tallinn. Pours black with a medium-sized brownish head. The aroma features dark, robustly roasty maltiness, coffee and chocolate - profoundly malty. Taste is dryish, roasty and bitter in the finish; assertive roasty maltiness is paired with a touch of balancing hoppiness. The flavour of coffee is strongest; also licorice and rye bread appear. The palate is medium to full bodied, smooth and low in carbonation. Rich, dark and roasty - very nice. thellgren (1127) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 24, 2016
0.33 l bottle @ 8% ABV from Viking XPress ferryboat (Helsinki-Tallinn) shop. Aroma is dark chocolate. Appearance is dark ruby (almost black) with a tan head. Taste is machine oil, then dark roast coffee and chocolate. Dry taste is fighting with malts. Not too bitter which is not the point anyway in this style. mjs (7685) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 27, 2016

330 ml bottle from Hawthorne Cellars. Label indicates bottling on 27/1/2015 and 8.0% ABV. Pours black with medium tan head. Aroma of toasted malt. Flavours of chocolate and coffee balance the toasted malt well. Taste is crisp for a stout. Recommended.
