As soon as I poured it I knew my expectations were going to be surpassed. Pours dark black black. How much more black could this be? The answer is none. None more black. With a great looking dark colored head looks great. Really nice coffee aroma. Heavy chocolate and coffee flavors. I really like it.

Aromat silny czekoladowo kakaowy. w smaku pelnotluste mleko z kakaem. Czekolada na deser pelnomleczna. Minimalna centymetrowa brazowa piana, barwa nieprzezroczysta czarna. Aromat weic mocno wyrazny ale w smaku tez za mocno wyraziscie bylo z ta laktoza. Za slodkie, cukierki kukulki plywajace w pepsi z dodatkiem owsianki. Palonosc spora i to wlasnie nieco ratuje to srednie dla mnie piwo.

Bottled 355ml. -Pitch black coloured, medium sized brown head, chocolate in the nose. Roasted malt, dark chocolate, light roasted coffee, notes of licorice and dry bitter chocolate finish. Great aroma but a bit too weak palate, never mind this is really really good stout.

12 oz bottle with minimal sediment on the bottom. Pours near black with a thin , weak head. Very appealing aroma with a flavor to match, almost. Both have exceptional balance. Remarkably well hidden alcohol, Very smooth, full body. Strong roasted grain aftertaste.

Pretty good.. Dark brown head. Slightly bitter. Not as creamy as most sweet stouts.

Dit is het soort stout waar ik echt van hou. Mooie chocolade koffie geur. De smaak biedt dezelfde koffie en volle chocolade met een romig mondgevoel. Voldoende zuren en bitters.

Bottle shared at home. Black with tan head. Sweet roasted choco malts, something almost burnt, big choc, toffee, taffee, coffee, rye. Softened by oats. Smooth. Sweet and light bitter. Over medium body and soft carbonation. Nice silky rich stout.

Maakun (6340) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2016
Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Black with brown head that doesn’t last very long and leaves a thick film. Quite some roasted notes with ash, coffee, dark chocolate and burnt caramel. Also some vanilla cookies, marzipan, light sweet red berries. Taste is over medium sweet balanced with quite some roasted bitterness. Over medium bodied with creamy feel.

3.5
Nische (2437) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 17, 2016
Bottle from Beergium. Pours opaque black with beige head that leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma of coffee, molasses, caramel fudge, vanilla and roast. Taste is dry and oaty with some roast and liquorice. Surprisingly thin body. Dry, roasted, liquorice finish.
