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.

jfb (5743) - Freising, GERMANY - NOV 19, 2016
(draught) deepest black colour with a creamy beige head. aroma of toasted malts and dark chocolate, rather generic, with some notes of treacle and brown sugar. flavour is mostly dark chocolate and toasted malts, with some light soy sauce, a hint of green phenols and butterscotch in the light roasted-bitter finish. heavy-bodied with soft carbonation.

PowY (291) - - OCT 21, 2016
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.

buczykij (15) - Limanowa, POLAND - OCT 4, 2016
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.
