Bottled, 330ml from Favourite Beers, Cheltenham, Gloucs. Black with tan head. Rich, sweet, unctuous beer, full on palate, chocolate with vanilla and pretty sweet. A little over the top for me but drinkable. joe19612 (2900) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark brown colour with a beige head, rich malt aroma, taste is sweet at first then some bitterness with a dry roasted finish. RexTalionis (3729) - FINLAND - NOV 29, 2013
Bottle 33 cl, BBE 11/2015. Pours dark brown in color with a mocha colored head. Vinous notes, marzipan boozyness, fresh car interior feeling and rum in aroma. Feels almost like beeing in a hospital too, feels too clinic in a way, which isn’t a good thing in this case. Vinous and quite sharp boozy notes in taste. Too boozy with light sweet overripe dark fruity notes in finish. Better later on however with some light smoky woodyness and bitter chocolateycoffee in aftertaste. More sweetish notes appears as well.
Much better towards the end actually FatPhil (15967) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 15, 2013

Black, tight tan head. Lovely rich roast, very burnt, aroma. Not as sweet as I was expecting. Very similar taste. Solid stout. Nothing fancy, but very nice burntish stout. Didn’t say 8.5%.

Opaque black - brown beer, good pale tan head. Palate is light and airy. Very mild dark malts, tangy and dry. Touch of spicy bubblegum ester. Touch of vanilla. Dry finish. Mmmm - frankly not fit to lick the boots of something like the Southern Tier beer of the same name. I mean where is the caramel? In it’s own right okay.
(Bottle, 0.33 l - BBE 9.11.2015, courtesy of VastActiv, 20130914) The beer poured black. Its head was medium sized and lightly brown. Aroma had vanilla, chocolate, roasted malts, sweetness and wood. Palate was full bodied and dryish with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, vanilla, chocolate, coffee, roasted malts and bitterness. Afteraste was sweet, roasty and bitter. A quite sweet experience. Less sweetness would have resulted in a better brew. VastActiv (6942) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 14, 2013
