Piepenhenrich (1191) - Steinbach, GERMANY - SEP 28, 2017
Bottle in Inverness, Scotland. Pours dark, black with beige head. Aroma of malts and licorice. Rich in flavor, some malt, some roast, a faint idea of smoke and licorice. Very subtle bitterness in the palate. After all a very decent Stout.

bottle on Loch Ness tour boat --- Aroma of dark malt. Taste is malt with strong carbonation that adds burlap and hay. It’s billed as a milk stout, but I can’t detect any lactose. Average overall. Obviously brewed for the masses.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2017 Bottle, Tesco. Pours black with tan head. Head dissipates quickly. Aroma of roast barley. Taste is coffee, charcoal, sweet malt and a slight creaminess to it . Medium to thin body. OK, would have been better if it was on draft as I found it a bit thin for the style

Lonick (2537) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 21, 2016
[email protected] Pours black, tan head which went in seconds. Nose is coffee, vegetables, malty, uncooked steak. Taste is slight bitter coffee which turns into a sweetish aftertaste.

500ml bottle from Morrisons, which I picked up for £1 !!!!! Pours jet black as expected with a 2 finger tan head. Nutty sweet treackle malty creamy nose. Taste is really good; chocolate milky roasted nutty malt with a nice bitter finish. One of the nicest tasting stouts I’v had in a while, very thick mouth feel too for a 4.4 abv beer. Impressed will be buying more.

500ml bottle. Dark brown pour with a caramel head. Aroma of rich cinder toffee and roasted malt. Pale flavour of cinder toffee and syrupy treacle with cream, bolstered by a strong dark stout flavour.

Tstamba (775) - Maryland, USA - SEP 4, 2016
Tap at Winking Owl in Aviemore. Black pour with thick foamy tan head. Malt and toffee at the front, smooth sweet malt finish. Very nice stout. Paired well with the meat pie!!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Musta olut kohtalaisella, kivasti pitsiä jättävällä beigellä vaahdolla. Tuoksu herkullisen kermainen, maitokahvinen, paahteinen sekä maitosuklainen. Maku jatkaa samalla linjalla ollen pehmeän kermainen, maitokahvinen, paahteinen ja suklainen sekä jälkimaultaan vielä paahteisuus korostuen. Keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma ja todellinen jymy-yllätys prosentteihin nähden! Loisto-ostos!
