Sample on tap at What’s Brewing BF, Stavanger. Black colour, tan head. Pretty impressive foreign extra stout, coffee notes, quite dry, some sharp burnt notes in the finish keep me from giving it a higher score. Meilby (11517) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 17, 2015

Tap at the brewpub. Deep brown-black pour with a tight tan-brown head. The aroma is quite coffeeish and dry. A little bit of light dry roast. Some light cocoa and roasted malt. Lean bodied - more like a stronger dry stout than a foreign or export stout. Either way, it’s a decently dry hoppy stout. Espressoish. j12601 (12700) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 14, 2011
On tap at Dieu du Ciel. Pours a deep viscous black with a medium to thick tan head. Big and roasty, chewy chocolate and pudding. Lots of roast, chocolate and chewy cocoa. Nice char and toffee notes. Very roasty, long roast bitterness. Very well balanced. robinvboyer (4699) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2011
