This stout has a robust flavour with a ful bodied and smooth mouth feel. The roast flavours lead to a dry espresso like finish. A generous addition of fuggles hops lead to a tart bitterness which mingles with the roast espresso flavours on the tongue.

From tap. Dark brown to black with a fine pored long lasting beige head. The aroma is rather mild with notes of roasted malt (coffee). Light to medium silky body with a light to medium sweetness and a light bitterness. The taste is very malty with predominately coffee aromas and fudge. Very rich for the low ABV and well balanced. The finish is slight bitter. Nice one.

Aromat jest przyjemny, wyraźnie palony, w tle delikatna nuta czekolady i kawy, wyczuwalny w sposób przyjemny alkohol. Piwo dobrze się prezentuje, niezbyt obfita ale ładna, beżowa i drobno pęcherzykowa piana nie opada zbyt szybko, ładnie zdobi szkło. Piwo jest niemal nieprzejrzyste,ciemno brunatne. W smaku czuć ciemne i palone słody, subtelna kwaśność, goryczka raczej niska, według mnie trochę za wysoko wysycone ale nieźle pijalne. Dobry przedstawiciel stylu.

Nice stout, way more rich flavour than guiness. Plus, no funny aftertaste. This is worth buying again and again.

Maybe it was just this bottle, but it had a sting - on taste and palate. Coffee, roasty, smoke, woody. Black, hazy body, frothy, brown head. Balanced, being lightly sour, sweet and bitter. Full bodied, creamy texture. Soft carbonation with abrupt finish. Must re-rate.

Zlotta (2514) - Hagen, GERMANY - AUG 19, 2016
0.1 l on tap at ’The Shakespeare’ (Herdecke). Clear, very dark red to black with a thin, frothy, almost stable, light beige head. Sweetish-malty, quite roasty aroma of dark chocolate, hard roasted coffee, a touch of hazelnut and some licorice. A little sweetish, quite bitter already, roasty-malty taste of dark chocolate, hard roasted coffee, licorice and some hazelnut, followed by a medium long, rather roasty-bitter, quite dry finish with hints of ash. Thin to medium body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Okay!

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2017 Pours dark brown with beige head. Aroma is crispy bread, metallic, raisins, coffee, chocolate, cocoa, some nuts, cream. Taste is coffee, dark bread, roasted almond, some chocolate, metal, a bit watery. Drinkable beer!

Kawowe, intensywnie palone, ale do tego również całkiem słodkie. Końcówka jest kawowa. Czuć również kawową kwaskowość. Na plus genialna piana. Ułożone i gładkie. A, i do tego jeszcze gorzka czekolada. Bardzo dobre.

0,33l fles in Frankrijk uit de super. Zwart met een ruige crčme kraag. Smaak met gedroogd fruit, geroosterd brood en espresso iets assige droge afdronk. Zeker niet verkeerd.
