Thanks to wombat23. Pours black from the bottle. The light brown head is creamy and clings to the glass in a sticky web of lacing. Aroma is rich milk chocolate, toffee. Taste is very bitter with dark chocolate undertones. A bit too bitter for the style in my opinion, and leaving no room for either sweeter or berry undertones. Finishes acrid. Body is heavy, fudge-like, with mild carbonation. Overall okay, but not among my top in this style. fillepolo (911) - SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2017

Very rich and dark stout. Head is very dark and laces the glass - eventually dissipates. Drinks easier than the ABV would suggest.

Pours a jet black with a foamy tan head. Aroma is surprisingly strong on the earthy hops, with roast and chocolate malts. Flavor is chocolate, roast, toffee, and earthy hops. Sweet and quite bitter. Has a lively, full body. Quite good. ZodiacM (1140) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2017
LCI. Uit de fles geschonken. Mooie dikke imp stout, gebrande mout, chocola en koffie. Heerlijk! dimeon (211) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - MAY 29, 2017
A: Very dark with a light brown big head.
N: Dark char, Freshly baked brown rusks
T: Liquorice, molasses, well balanced acidity, a brothiness emerges. The citrus from the hops keeps this potentially heavy beer quite bright and drinkable.
P: Very full
O: Other hoppy stouts take note. This is the benchmark. Ronritter (659) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAY 23, 2017
