A bit aggressive on the bubbles, but they don't lie on the smoothness. Not much christmas taste-ish but great in any other aspect ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

No can do stouts better than the Irish. A bit too much carbonation pulls down the impression, but gee what a great and well-balanced taste and the aftertaste is delightfully long.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2014 BB 06.09.2014, 330ml bottle. Pours pitch black with tan head. The head stays. Aroma is milky, creamy, licorice, some cacao with raisin like notes. Flavor is very creamy, rather sweet, chocolate, coffee, roasted notes, some slight tart, raisins. Finish is nice dark chocolate bitter. Overall: a great creamy stout.

Black, creamy beige head, a lot of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate. Lovely creamy mouthfeel. Some smoked flavor in the aftertaste. Excellent stout.

Piwo butelkowe. W aromacie kawa, czekolada i karmel. Kolor czarna smoła, piana mieszana zarówno drobno jak i wielkopęcherzykowa szybko jednak opada. W smaku wyczuwalne mocno nuty czekolady i kawy, lekko ostry posmak alkoholowy co dziwi przy 6%, jest też karmel i ziemista w odbiorze goryczka na kontrze. Piwo gęste i pełne. Świetny stout ale troszeczkę za bardzo nasycony.

500ml bottle, 6%. An excellent full-bodied heart-warming stout. Pours black with limited dark brown head. Sweet and strong lightly carbonated with some roasted coffee and hops in the flavour. More please!

Bill Becker (873) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Pitch black with tan head of foam. I smell roasted malt that comes across as very dry and somewhat bitter. There is chocolate too and that adds sweet notes. Tastes like it smells. Roasty, sweet chocolate, dry bitterness from coffee. Very tasty. Smooth mouthfeel. I had not even heard of this brew. What a pleasant surprise!

Apariencia: Color negro azabache y opaco con una capa de espuma muy cremosa. Aroma: Agradable a chocolate, vainilla y pan, complejo intenso y lleno de sutiles matices. Sabor: Se repiten esos toques a vainilla acompańados de cacao y cereal con un leve amargor torrefacto.
