UPDATED: MAR 24, 2016 Bottle @ home. Pours with a dark brown colour, medium frothy tan head. Aroma is rich in dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla and some licorice; very strong roasty notes; quite a strong aroma, and elegant. Taste is medium sweet, medium bitter, quite sour; not as elegant as the aroma, but right on the export stout kind of idea. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, pleasant soury finish.

At cellar temperature and into a snifter. Deepest cola in the shallows otherwise it’s black. Head a mere tannish ring on the meniscus. I must have a cold because I struggled to pick up any aroma apart from a faint hint of burnt toast and sawdust. On the palate it is a little rough and raw. Bitter and sharp peppery hops actually dominate. Otherwise it yields up twiggy bark, scorched wood and ash, peanut husks and stinging nettles. Body is on the lean side. Quite sprightly with a powdery feel to the finish. Just did not like it, so that’s a subjective thing. Nothing melded. Hmmmph!

Bottle from Beer Cartel 150316. This is a big roasty stout that fills the mouth with flavour. Burnt bitter finish leaves a long lingering aftertaste. Looks good in the glass and the only thing missing is the fire to sit around. Davros (3132) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 15, 2016
Pours black with a large tan head.
Nose shows liquorice, roasted malt, soft coffee and a little bready malt.
Flavours include more liquorice and roast, treacle, some caramel/toffee and a fair whack of bitterness in the finish. TET (2988) - Kaarina, FINLAND - MAR 4, 2016
A black beer, a head is quite small and beige. Aroma has roastiness, coffee, richness of sour bread, hint of riped fruitness. Taste is rich, roastiness, black coffee. Some bitterness that’s nicely balancing the sweetness. Medium+ bodied, low carbonation. Roasted, slightly harsh beer, same notes that are in the Sinebrychoff Porter. Tasteful beer.

Bottle. Dark brown in color with a tan head. Dark roasted notes, soft fresh licorice and cocoa powder in aroma. Quite soft mouthfeel, but some burnt coffee and butterscotch notes are present tastewise. Solid, bit stronger stout. Like the soft, even slightly vinous and burnt elements in this brew. szymonskc (880) - Skórcz, POLAND - FEB 18, 2016
Aromat dosyć intensywny, palone słody, kawa, gorzka czekolada i taki likierowy alkohol. Kolor czarny, nieprzejrzyste. Beżowa, bardzo obfita piana, kremowa, średniopęcherzykowa, trwała, ładnie zdobi szkło. W smaku dominują palone słody, kawa, gorzka czekolada, pralinki. Wszystko to fajnie intensywne, gęste i lekko alkoholowe. Średnia goryczka, w stronę wysokiej, średnie wysycenie. Pychota. Choos (754) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - FEB 18, 2016
