GL2814 (361) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Pours with a thick beige head, and dark viscous color. It has a smooth coffee flavor to it. Not bad if you like coffee flavor.

Towey1989 (3257) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2017 Keg at Beerdock Leek. A deep ruby to black colour with a creamy tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate, roasted malts, some coffee, slight caramel and subtle smoky wood. Taste of milk chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, slight smoky wood, a hint of tart dark fruits and subtle caramel. Light bodied but a smooth texture. A dry, subtley tart, woody, roasted bitterness in the finish. An interesting Irish Dry Stout, looks and feels great, silky smooth as expected. Has some lovely, unique flavours. A little charcoal, a hint of tart fruits and roasty malts. Really good, keeps me coming back for more.

stantheman (1098) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 6, 2017
On tap at Rogue Wetbar on W Broadway in Vancouver. A black beer with generous and creamy tan head; the creaminess indicating it's served on nitrogen. Confirmed by bar staff.

The creaminess carries over to the mouth feel. Delicious roasted barley malts with chocolate notes. Low bitterness. Lovely! 3.9

Имеет множество оттенков вкуса а именно это; Горький шоколад, жженая карамель,кофе. При послевкусие горькость порой слишком сильна.Но в целом это вполне сносный стаут.

jamesie1857 (1980) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2017
500ml bottle from Iceland - dark black body, thick tan top. Nose has all the key elements in a traditional stout, roasty, burnt, coffee grinds. Taste has a nice bitterness to it, robust and malty.

Holmen1 (6465) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2017
Ombord på Fridtjofen, på slipp på Tau, flaske (fra trade med Sigmund) delt med skibsrederen: brunsvart med fint skum som varer. Liflige toner av mørkrøstet malt og nybrente kaffebønner a la Vedvik. Snaddersmak og særdeles velfortjent (synes vi naturligvis) etter en lang dag med rustpikking og vasking. Meget velsmakende på soldekket, og arbeidslysten svinner like raskt som glasset tømmes. Sjokoladestreif i den gode ettersmaken.

4.1
Holmen2 (4031) - NORWAY - SEP 1, 2017
Bottle shared with JMD on board Fridtjofen at Tau slipp og båtbyggeri 01.09.17. Ebony. Pale brown head and lacing. Excellent aroma and taste of freshly roasted coffe, roasted malt, wood and pine and hops. Bitterness and roasted coffe is lingering on. Very quaffable!
