3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Hanging Bat. Deep brown/black, creamy beige head. Big Weetabix malts, oatmeal, slight cacao, definite coffee nose. Sweet creamy front, dark chocolate, mild roast, then a big bitter roast finish. Lovely rich body but just a tiny bit bitter for me.
On tap at the Mill. Pours black with thin head and aroma of chocolate that features again on the palate with a bit of bitterness. Finish is short, sharp and dry. mudfly (87) - - APR 16, 2017

Colore opaco scuro, schiuma persistente. All’ olfatto note tostate, caffe e cioccolato. Al palato mediamente corposa, malto tostato, caffe, caramello. Nell’insieme una buona birra con un forte carattere come deve essere una stout. rumore (590) - Rimini, ITALY - DEC 15, 2016
From the tap at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours almost black, with moderate caffelatte head. Aroma is of burnt coffee and black chocolate. Body if flat and light. Taste is dominated by that bitter (non-hop-related) feeling of burnt coffee. Finish is relatively short, with some bitterness left.

Color negro oscuro, opaco, con capa de espuma amarronada de más de cuatros dedos de grosor (demasiada espuma [jabonosa] pero no tengo problema con ello). La puedes coger con cuchara. Carbonatación a tope. Se percibe una catarata de burbujas en sentido inverso. Aroma a café, malta tostada, algo de chocolate, lúpulo, y un ligero ahumado lejano. Sabor a café, malta tostada, chocolate, algo herbal... Muy completa y muy sabrosa. Una Dry Stout increíble, al nivel de la Kernel Dry Stout Chinook. gunnar (9231) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2016
Bottle from Gulating, Vestkanten. Pours black with a red glow, big creamy beige head. Aroma is inviting, with toffee and chocolate. Taste is smooth malty, with delicious roasted malts, coffee and bitter liquorice at the utter finish, solid brew, impressive at the low abv.

Medium aroma of malts, caramel, chocolate, roasted malts and coffee.
Opaque black beer with a medium/large brown head.
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts and coffee.
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. It is damn tasty, especially for the low abv. So much roasted and overall malty flavour, it is simply insane.
