Sigmund (7126) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2016
500 ml bottle, from Matkroken Stokka. BB date 28. April 2014. ABV is 4.4%. Black colour, moderate but lasting tan head. Sweetish malty and lightly roasty aroma, more malts and caramel than coffee, also notes of chocolate and vanilla. Smooth flavour, delightful lightly roasted quality malts, some sweetness but not too much, notes of chocolate, toast and mild coffee, moderate hops. Definitely a beer Id buy again.

mabuzzer (712) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - JAN 23, 2016
500ml bottle. Impenetrable black with a lively off white head that fizzed away. Roasted malt and coffee aroma. Taste is similar with a hint of liquorice. Bit thin, perhaps, and taste/aroma could both be stronger, but still nice

.25l pour from refrigerated bottle into shaker pint. Nose is light, nutty, malty. Body is thin. Taste is malty without being too strong. Nutty, a little bready, some toffee. Easy drinking stout.

Thick and creamy tasting. Looks like liquid black gold. Tastes like a really decent beer but looks and tastes like something really really special :) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500ml bottle pours black with a decent tan head. Aroma is fabulous, sweet milk chocolate and caramel, almost a Mars bar nose...really. Taste is roasted, chocolatey malts, also get some smokey character coming through and then it all gets sweet, maybe a touch too sweet. Soft carbonation but just enough to keep things vibrant, really velvety mouthfeel. Definitely one of my favourite sub 5% beers I have tasted.

thmsboyd (198) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - SEP 6, 2015
Bottle BBE: 28 Jul 2016. Cellar temp. Pours essentially black with a small but significant, creamy, tight, tan head. Great lacing. Medium intensity aromas of smoked cheese, coffee, roasted grain and a hint of liquorice. A medium treacle sweetness is the dominant taste, with some smokiness clouding the tongue. Surprisingly light-medium bodied, with quite a soft, foamy texture. Carbonation is high-medium and the finish is slightly astringent. Overall this is a bit of a disappointment, as the pour and nose promised much. Probably needs to be a bit higher abv to deliver the expected body and complexity.
