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.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours black with a tan head. Taste roasted malt, coffee, hint of chocolate. I thought this was ok. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

En rigtig god stout, med en masse chokoladesmag. "Dry" er også et godt navn, den er tør i eftersmagen

nephirem (293) - CROATIA - FEB 14, 2016
Pours thick black color with huge and creamy brown head. Beautiful smell of chocolate, coffee and burnt malts. Medium body with medium carbonation. Very smooth on the tongue. Taste is mostly bitter, slightly smoked. Aroma of burnt malts, coffee grains, berries. Slightly bready with notes of dark chocolate present in the aftertaste. Finish is dry with somewhat lasting bitterness. Overall, lovely stout.

Completely black. Funky aroma, almost like tuna. Tangy. Watery! Slightly roasted with a hint of salmiac which is awesome.

Bierdimpfe (518) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 6, 2016
Opaque black color. Thick creamy and sparkly brown 2 finger head lasting around 6 minutes. Strong legs and no visible activity. Aromas and flavors of nuts, toffee, cocoa and coffee with herbal spices. Strong earthy smell with a roasted bitter taste. Creamy heavy body with prickly carbonation. Strong and long bitter finish ending with a thick smoky mouth coat and highly dry. Overall : The craft and flavors are good but it’s slightly slate missing some freshness. Too dry and bitter for my taste, preferring sweeter stouts.

lello4ever (743) - ITALY - JAN 21, 2016
Marrone molto scuro con schiuma sottile beige. Aroma un po? piatto di malto. Al palato appare il malto tostato, qualche nota di cioccolato e torrefazione. Leggera e secca nel finale. Carbonazione media. Stout di buon livello.
