doradobotella (242) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2014
Apariencia: Color negro intenso con una capa de espuma cremosa, abundante y duradera.
Aroma: Sutil y agradable a malta tostada y chocolate con toques a mocca o incluso ahumados.
Sabor: Muy bien compensado que recuerda al café y termina con un amargor ligeramente seco. ReV2 (217) - Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2014
Poured reddish black when held to the light. Thin tan head, chocolatey aroma. Slightly thin and oily mouthfeel, toast & nuts, detectable hops on the finish (traditional?), nice & moreish. uckelman (813) - Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2014
Bottle in Dufftown at a Taste of Speyside. Black. Huge structural tan head. Aroma is roasted, toasted, hint of smoke and ash. Medium body. Aftertaste is dark malt and dark chocolate. Rune (13508) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 22, 2014
500ml bottle kindly shared by Stefan at a rating session. The body is black as pitch. Tan-coloured head, diminishing to a remaining layer. Loose lacing. Roasted dark malts to the nose with moderate hints of liquorice. Slightly roasted taste with a touch of dried fruits and earth, mid-sweet. Roasted ending as well. Smooth and nice in the mouth, a little thin bodied though (Tårnrommet, Tromsø 15.05.2014). Scottishchris (754) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 27, 2014
Quick rate. Dark dark brown, thin tan fuzzy head. Loads of coffee, chocolate and roasted notes. Tasty.

Dark brown. It’s very sweet, w a fair bit of butter that might in smaller quantity add roundness but here is really too much. OleR (4849) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle from Meny Oslo City. Tanned finger-thick cream head. Near black body with ruby edges. Coffee up front, set off by a whiff of dark dried fruits and mild earthy hops. Creamy mouthfeel, good body. Soft bitter-sweet malt flavor. Creamed coffee and gentle roast. Mellow coffee-accented malt finish. Another well-crafted bottle (i.e. pasteurised and filtered) from Cairngorm. djoeye (5207) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 9, 2014

Scents of roasted smokey chocolate malts, hints of hazelnut oil, dried berries, sweet mocca coffee.
Body black-brown, head beige diminishing, moderate laceworks inside my mug.
Taste of chocolate malts, nuts, dark berries, mocca coffee, hints of sweet liquorice.
Smooth to palate, just a little dry. This moderate abv stout is really easy to drink,
for those who normally prefer standard lagers/pilseners. Recommendable.

black as the night. thin head. extremely nutty, smokey, cheesy? nah, that’s just the nut... hints of coffee and licorice. a little thin but easy to drink (can’t have just one) and exceptionally full-bodied for the abv. still, this is one you really want on cask. allmyvinyl (11019) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 14, 2013
500ml bottle at home. Pours very, very dark brown, with a tiny tan head, little lacing. Big roasted aromas though, coffee, chocolate, liquorice. Bitter taste, more coffee. Bit thin.
