Aroma: lots of malt; not much else; Appearance: pitch black with thin off white head that dissipates quickly; Taste: much better than aroma; smooth, chocolatey, boozy, rich; lots of complexity; Palate: heavy body with long, sweet finish; Overall: very nice russian stout; would definitely get again if wanting dessert. mandaritto (246) - LATVIA - DEC 14, 2016

A bit dissapointed. Kind a boring brew, Some roastiness of malts, strong coffee, but kind a dryish-watery aftertaste. Quite unballanced, but not so bad.. mR_fr0g (12067) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2016
Bottle picked up from the brewery in 2013. A jet black coloured pour with a lasting dark tan head. Aroma is initially punch roasted barley, black malts, figgy pudding, booze soaked fruit, sherry, cakey malts. Palate is oily, thick and chewy with lowish carbonation. Flavour is rounded, smooth rich roast, earthy, toffee, boozy fruit cake, little age, Finish hold a little wood / sherry cask note. Solid stuff.

Heerlijk aroma, gedroogd fruit met chocolade. In de smaak opnieuw dit gedroogd fruit: rozijnen, druiven. Mooie afdronk, met gepaste bittere chocolade een iets van brandy/cognac. Top. DroolYeast (1489) - Odder, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2016
Bottle @ Délirium Café Amsterdam. Aroma of roasted malt, light DMS and light boozy. Black colour with tan head, lasting. Taste is moderate bitter and light sweet. Full body, oily feel and roasted finish. JPDIPSO (6223) - Wauwatosa, USA - NOV 30, 2016
Near black beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of roasted malt and light notes of burnt malt and coffee. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of soy sauce and roasted malt, leading to a dry finish where notes of coffee and a bit of chocolate lingers. Pleasant. Sweet, with little alcohol showing. 10/11
