The beer looks like a true Irish stout. The color of the beer is a lovely black jn the naked eye. With a strong light behind the beer, a nice ruby red glow is unveiled. The beer seems rather clears. On top of the beer, a minimal layer of almond conjured foam is formed. The bulk of the foam collapses, to leave a minimal creamy drape. The smell is lovely. It’s really a stout smell. It has mainly the sweet aromas of a stout. I smell sweet chocolate, mocha, coffee and some vanilla. I also smell some cherries and alcohol. All in all, a nice smell. I mis the roasted barley a little. This is present, but I wished it was a lot stronger. The smell had a little more of this. I taste done lovely bitter roast flavors. I love those flavors. I also taste some caramel, chocolate, mocha, vanilla and some licorice. There is also a little touch of cherry. The roast flavor had something salty. The beer has a nice bouquet of flavors and aromas. It’s very nice. The palate is nice. The beer has done nice tingly bubbles. This is lovely in combination with the stouty flavors and aromas. A lovely brew. I’ve been waiting to drink this for a kin get time. I’m glad I’ve waited till the right moment.

maxwelldeux (4373) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Bottle. Pours a near-black color with a moderate tan head. Nose is extremely roasty with some coffee elements in there. Taste is also very roasty and just a tad bitter with some subtle cocoa on the back end. A little dry, but very tasty. Good stout.

Erzengel (8365) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 23, 2014
Deep dark in the bottle, beige foamy head. The beer starts intense roasted, very dry. The mainpart is roasted. Espresso, dark chocolate, even hints of brown dark sugar, but not very sweet at all. The aftertaste is long, burned dark bread, nicely hopped, very intense roasty.
Great and dark roasted Stout. Intense and still highly drinkable! A great brew! --> 13/12/14/14

Trolleo (1452) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 29, 2014
Dark as night, medium to big sized tan head. Coffee and dark chocolate aroma. Medium body, soft to average carbonation. Finish is kind of watery, but very tasty, long lasting with coffee and bitterness. Very nice. Lot better than Celtic Stout.

sunstoneale (74) - MOLDOVA - MAR 4, 2016
Pours pitch black with a thin creamy head. Very complex and rich aroma best described as a good coffee liquor: dark chocolate, hints of alcohol and lots of sweet coffee. Very thick body with a silky texture. Complex taste comprised of dark chocolate, coffee, dark caramel, even some rum notes. Suprizingly amazing beer, especially for its price.

Une bičre de dessert, ou de veillée,... la note de chocolat noir annoncée sur la bouteille est effectivement trčs présente... Le reste est plus subtil. Une stout, une vraie ! Je n’ai qu’une seule envie aprčs cette découverte, me faire du stock!
