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.

Découverte dans la Saveur Box. Bière noire avec mousse beige. Un nez de café et malte. Au goût on confirme les arômes avec de l’amertume.

Une bonne stout, avec un goût très porté sur les céréales grillés, oui c’est très bon, et on y revient.

Benzai (15019) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAR 13, 2017
Tap at Ha’Penny Inn shared with Niilstrong. Opaque pitch black color, medium sized creamy beige head that lasts for a long time.  Smell and taste malts, soft roast, dark and lightly burnt malts with a nice bitterness. Quite pleasant.

Scipio (946) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2017
Pours black with a thinner dark tan head that doesn’t last long at all. The aroma is heavier in roasted malts, though there is healthy amount of both chocolate and coffee. The taste is very dry with a bitterness that seems to intensify the more you drink. I get a lot of roasted malt and grain in the taste, with minor chocolate coming in at the end. The aftertaste is a short, weak chocolate that leaves you with a lingering grainy bitterness. Light in body, thin in texture, and soft carbonation. I was expecting much more out of this one.

This is my first post. Hi everyone! Dark, almost completely black with generous head. I loved the head. Bready. Roasted aroma. Medium bodied. Low to medium carbonation. Creamy, bland, plain, bitterness at the end. I liked it. Don’t often drink stouts. There is a badge on Untappd if you try it till St. Patrick’s.

Pint poured at craft beer market in Calgary. Pours black with a creamy beige head. Smells like malt. Tastes creamy with a slight bitter finish. Easy to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
