3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown, some tan head. Looks great. Aroma is strong roasted barley, some smoky notes. Flavor is mostly malt, very roasty, very full tasting. I found the palate to be very lively for a stout, it makes the body seem thinner than it actually is. Overall a very drinkable stout.
Bottle. In Hawaii of course. Pretty much black color brown head. Aroma of burnt espresso. Taste has dark cocoa and dark coffee. Decent body. Tasty. Zlotta (3814) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - OCT 29, 2017
0.375 l bottle from 'Sterk Avondverkoop', best before October 2018. Black with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, beige head. Sweetish-malty, moderately roasty aroma of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee and some licorice. Quite sweet, malty, moderately roasty taste of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee and some licorice, followed by a short, moderately roasty-bitter, slightly earthy-dry and a little metallic finish. Medium body, slightly creamy and moderately effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice! Eddie1976 (124) - - OCT 19, 2017
I never used to like stouts but I’m slowly changing my mind and this one is helping me do that!

Bottle from a Melbourne Coles Liqourland. Poured a clear dark brown with a frothy tan head. The aroma is sweet roasty caramel malt, chocolate, coffee, liqourice, dry hop. The flavour is liqourice bitter with a roasty,dry smoke, charcoal liqourice palate and a dry liqourice bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Better than the aged version IMO. coil (150) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2017

Pours a gorgeous dark brown color with a perfectly 1 inch thick head into a tulip glass. Aroma is chocolate, licorice, warm spices, dark fruit, earthy, very roasty. Taste is dry chocolate up front with a smooth dark red fruit/berry note in the middle finished with a great slightly drying bitter note. Overall a fairly drinkable beer with pleasant roasty fall/winter flavors. mithe (1875) - Opava & Brno, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 12, 2017

From old tasting notes. Black brown color. Thick creamy tan head. Spicy roasted malt nose. Rich sweet roasted chocolate malt flavor. Overly sweet, yet drinkable. doriangrey (84) - Diamond Creek, AUSTRALIA - APR 16, 2017
Strong but lacking the bite or flavour of a strong beer. Some liquorice but otherwise slightly bland and watery. I’d take it over many other beers though
