COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

rikstar (2603) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 6, 2016
0,33l fles in Frankrijk uit de super. Zwart met een ruige crème kraag. Smaak met gedroogd fruit, geroosterd brood en espresso iets assige droge afdronk. Zeker niet verkeerd.

DrNosha (2287) - Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - AUG 5, 2016
0,33l Flasche. Schwarzes Bier mit schönem hellbraunem Schaum. Röstmalz Aroma. Chikoree und Kaffe. Ziemlich erdig. Sehr trockener Antrunk. Herb-bitterer Kaffe Geschmack. Wirklich trocken. Keine Süsse. Fast etwas pelzig auf der Zunge. Sehr bittere Schokolade im Abgang.

RobBestwick (922) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 24, 2016
500ml bottle. Dark chocolate and coffee aroma. Typical stout appearance - pours jet black with a mid-sized brown/yellow head. Roasted coffee, dark chocolate and a touch of hoppy bitterness. Dry texture and a nicely balanced finish. Enjoyable.

Tjomleif (223) - NORWAY - JUL 22, 2016
On-tap in Copenhagen. Overall, a very good Irish stout and a nice change of pace for what used to be dominated by a single brewery. Highly recommend.

Schwarzes bier, schaum ok recht wenig Geruch leicht rauchig, Geschmack malzig rauchig Kaffee und dunkler karamell, schon herb im Abgang aber zwischen durch wirkt es immer etwas wässrig
