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.

Fatehunter (2518) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - OCT 26, 2012
On tap with a perfect pour. Solid tan finger of head with a black body. Smell of toasted and roasted malt. Amazing. Taste of dry burnt malt with mild bitterness. Great balance. Soft and crisp texture. Low carbonation. On-tap can’t go wrong with this one.

JaKeAFC (1097) - ITALY - APR 28, 2017
50cl bottle from Simply Market, relatively expensive (3.60€). Very dark color, almost black, big brown head, great lacing. Cocoa upfront. Taste of dark malts, toasted bread, light coffee, some cocoa, peat, charcoal, grass. Taste is clean, mild bitter, light malty, quite dry. Light to medium body, soft carbonation, watery to creamy texture. Silky but dry finish, clean. Nice stout.
