4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Thanks to the efforts of Adam at Platinum Cellars we are now able to experience some of the delightful beers that we could only dream of. Cost is irrelevant even though there is a serious kick to the kredit kard every time I visit. I enjoyed this with Dave and Steve, my two mates who now bow their heads and admit tht they too, are beer nerds. This was our last beer of the night where there were many great beers supped before this. But still a beautiful beer. Great coffee aromas with roasted malt and caramel. Thick as a triple espresso with a similarly coloured crema. A delighful blend of coffee flavours and well hopped bittereness being supported by a great malt roastiness. A fantastic nightcap.
Flight, Brewdog Edinburgh, Alesmith showcase. Pours midnight black, persistent tan head. Big booze, treacle, coffee, roasted nuts, burnt toast, charcoal aroma. Smooth as hell, but with a boozy warming finish. Massively complex, but well balanced taste of roasted coffee, chocolate, dark fruits, treacle, HP sauce hints too. Soft but with an enormous full mouthfeel. Tastes like a base for a thousand finishes (and there are) but probably wouldn’t be improved by tweaking. Great stuff.

Kicsi, nem túl tartós hab, fekete szín. Isteni, csokis, kakaós, kávés , aszalt gyümölcsös illat. Csokis, kakaós, aszalt szilvás-meggyes ízvilág, enyhe kávés és konyakos, földes aromákkal. Testes, enyhén szénsavas, erősen keserű, kissé száraz utóízzel. Nagyon finom, igazi nagyágyú.

568ml can from Beergium.com. Black colour with medium beige head. Big roasted coffee, big espresso, pure coffee beans, big mocha, coffee cake, big dark fruits, dark chocolate, cocoa powder, dark chocolate brownie, roasted malts, toffee. Really well balanced and smooth, doesn’t feel like 12% at all. Really great. rumproasts (5406) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 10, 2017
can. thick black with small head. rich and malty, dark chocolate and coffee. definitely a fine stout, with extremely good balance of flavors. but given the reputation this one has, i was hoping for more. amazing that this is 12% but drinks as easy as it does. ngunity (174) - - AUG 10, 2017
Pot on tap in Sandbar in Surfers paradise. Poured with minimal head. Aroma is rich cocoa and a hint of dark fruit. Smooth on the pallet and tasting of cocoa, the huge 12% is only a hint of warmth and richness. The booze comes through more as the beer warms. A great sipping beer

Been meaning to try this one for a while and finally caught it on tap the other day. The aroma is truly divine, a cloud of malty sweet chocolate. The appearance is a velvety thick brownish black. The taste is smooth, rich, and dense with a pillow of cocoa powder, mocha, and some slight smokiness. Overall very nice and worthy of the high rep. Good for a rainy day of packing, cuddling, and Tony Jaa movies. mrpaleo (1) - Pagosa Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 30, 2017 does not count

Barwa smoliście czarna, piana beżowa 1 centymetrowa.
Aromat kawy, wanilii, czekolady, ciemne owoce, troszkę szlachetnego alko.
W smaku wytrawne. Jest czekolada, kawa, karmel, śliwka i wiśnia w czekoladzie. Potężnie czekoladowo słodkie przełamane trochę kwaśną kawą i paloną goryczką.
Pifko gęste, mega ułożone.
Alko całkowicie ukryte jedynie trochę rozgrzewa przełyk.
Ocena taka tylko dlatego że kiedyś mam nadzieję na jeszcze lepsze pifko.
Wybitne pifko!!! suurjuust (3566) - ESTONIA - JUL 28, 2017
473ml can. Dark brown beer, almost black, very small tan head. Nose is roasty, coffee with some stale notes, chocolate and cocoa, licorice. Flavor is warm, boozy, roasty, coffee. Dry and boozy finish, roast, chocolate. Pretty nice balance, even the stale coffee isn’t a dealbreaker with this one.
