A black beer with a tan head. Very thick and creamy body, like a complete meal. Some coffee, dough and malts in the aroma and flavour. A bit bitter taste, but a very nice beer. martjoobolut (5094) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 30, 2013
BB 07/2014, 330 ml bottle. Belgian version. Pours dark brown with tan head, head dissapears rather quickly. Faint aromas of caramel. Taste: is lightly creamy with sourness, caramel and bitterness. Medium carbonation. Overall: ok beer, but nothing really exciting. Hallstein (483) - Skogn, NORWAY - NOV 25, 2013
Aromas of Roasted barley, chocolate, and a slight hint of coffee. Maybe a tad too carbonated for my tastes, but the palate is ok. The flavors are mostly roasted malts, sweet chocolate, toffee, barley sugar and coffee. Nice and smooth finish with a balanced bitterness. A good example of a dry stout. vami (532) - Poznan, POLAND - NOV 24, 2013
