Instant hint of nutty, chocolatey taste. Lighter than most stouts. Dark brown colour.

Black colour, small head. Aroma is roasted malts, smoked wet wood, mild non-sweet syrupy notes as well as some mild toffeeish notes. Flavour is very similar with some mild freshly cut wooden notes and resin as well.
500 ml bottle from drink store. Deep brown, verging on black, big creamy foamy head. Roast malt, roasted barley and coffee nose. Flavour is milk chocolate, roasted malt and a bitter hop bite. Lovely creamy texture to this, velvety carbonation. Finish is long and roasty, with chocolate sweet notes. Delicious. Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 20, 2011
Nice dark brown. Thin head. The aroma is chocolatey and cookieish. Soft, smooth and very chocolatey, with a lightly fruity character and a vague whiff of smoke in the finish.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2013 A good looking dark stout this one with roasted coffee/earthy aroma. Fairly thick with a light brown head that is retained down the glass. Champion beer of Belfast 2010. Chocolate malt flavors preside giving way to a mellow finish and caramelised malt aftertaste. cgarvieuk (24230) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 3, 2011

0.5 l bottle from local supermarket. Colour is black as the name suggests and taste has dark chocolate. This is really nice. Well, maybe not in a hot summer day, but during a winter as dessert. JPDIPSO (6216) - Wauwatosa, USA - OCT 28, 2016
Dark brown with a tight small lid of off-white bubbles. Various grain aromas. Nice malts flavors with touches of mild coffee, dark chocolate and mild dark fruit.
A touch thin, and quite bitter in the finish. 5/11

Bottle shared with Niilstrong @ The Garrick, Belfast. Opaque black color, full sized dense and creamy mocha colored head that lasts for a long time. Aroma is malts, slightly smoked malts, earthy, soft roast. Taste malts, dark malts, soft to moderately roasted malts, earthy and dry with a decent malt bitter finish. Solid dry stout I’d say.
