3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Wow, if ever there was a beer that gained from being let warm up. At first this seemed harsh and boozy, which of course doesn’t make too much sense. Decent aroma, on the roasty chocolate side, as it warms the mouthfeel and flavor improve. Pretty decent. How does it compare to Kalamazoo or something like that? Well, I’m not totally sure-I’m not sure why this is in the sweet stout section.
A combination of a beautiful pour to a frothy, dark brown head, and then that head slowly dissipates. Aroma is milky chocolate, licorice and dark chocolate as it warms. Medium weight body is mostly sweet flavors but distance hints of bitterness, too. Bottle date is smudged and all I can make out is the vintage (2014) -- it's waited patiently for four years to be consumed. The bottle identifies this older version at 7.0% ABV vs. the currently listed 8.0% on this website. Delicious. Grzesiek79 (4480) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 21, 2017
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. ogivlado (8316) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 19, 2017
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. nutjes (1328) - Zwevegem, BELGIUM - JUN 27, 2017

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.

Black with thin head. Aroma has some roasted malts and bitter chocolate. Flavour also has dark chocolate and a hint of coffee. Obfuscate (607) - Minneapolis, - FEB 26, 2017
Pretty good.. Dark brown head. Slightly bitter. Not as creamy as most sweet stouts. 90 (885) - BELGIUM - FEB 24, 2017
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. sjogro (4998) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2016
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 (6709) - 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.
