Bijna zwarte kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt zoetig, koffie, mout. Smaakt koffie, mout. Samtzu (629) - Palmerston North, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 25, 2017
2015 Vintage. Pours a deep black with light brown head. Huge aroma full of coffee and dark chocolate. Full body with rich chocolate flavours which develop into coffee notes. The oatmeal provides a sweetness which lessens any bitter notes from the coffee. Delicious. explosivedog (1814) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 9, 2017
On tap at the Lumsden (apparently the only keg ever as part of the Lumsden’s birthday celebration). Pours black with a little translucency. Thick body. Figs, cherries, coffee, nutty. Lots of sweet fruit up front, lots of bitter coffee and bitter roasty notes after and then a nice long coffee finish. The coffee and figs take centre stage over the stout but it all blends together outstandingly well. An absolute delight. Lunkie (1965) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - APR 1, 2017

2013 version. Harsh aroma. Stale burnt coffee and musty wardrobes. Palate and flavour is beautiful. Sweetness up front countered with a balanced coffee finish. The figs and coconut don’t really feature. joe19612 (3131) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2017
Bottle. Pours a deep black colour with a fluffy beige head, aroma is roasted malt with hints of coffee, the taste is medium bitterness with the coffee coming through with a dry bitter finish. CRock (273) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2016
Really well balanced beer. The creaminess of the stout with the subtle fig made it a great beer on Christmas day.
