TAR (2729) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - MAR 1, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2011 Deep ebony. Gentle pour produces a healthy caramel cap of foam. Rich espresso, cocoa, and burnt malt-hull aromatics are dotted with notes of phenols, vanilla and plum. Fluffy and expressive carbonation. Airy and cottony roast links up with snug char and a surge of tarry espresso and dry cocoa. Bright burst of plum heightens drinkability as it beautifully offsets the dryness and brasher roast elements, further deepening the luscious milk chocolate and butter toffee malt underbelly. Alcohol warmth is felt slightly in the belly, but is masterfully cloaked. Perceptible char-derived acidity remains subtle enough so as not to not blemish the rich, well-layered malt. Silky yet slightly ashy finish graces a late smoky espresso flourish. Not much to complain about here. A rich, focused, and nicely balanced "bigger" stout.

Piwo w kolorze czarnym z bardzo obfita lekko bezowa srednio i drobnopecherzykowa piana. W aromacie intensywna kawa i palonosc, gorzka czekolada i ciemne owoce. Tego samego doswiadczamy w smaku, pyszna kawa z czekolada i nutka lukrecji. Wysycenie na srednim poziomie i mocno palona goryczka. Piwo jest tresciwe i gladkie, jestem naprawde pozytywnie zaskoczony.

McWorta (1601) - LUXEMBOURG - FEB 11, 2017
Dark brown-black with a light beige-tan head, good lacings. Aromas of roasted malts, dark chocolate, hints of cofee as well as a touch of vanilla and dark fruits develop. Fine carbonation with a medium body and a smooth texture. Lightly sweet with some roast bitterness - well harmonic medium lasting finish.

isaacdg (12) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 16, 2017
Muy rica, aroma dulce, chocolate tostado, algo licoroso. Sabor chocolate cacao amargo, buena base de malta con algo de caramelo, final seco, amargor leve bien integrado. Cuerpo medio y carbonatacion media, sabor persistente en el tiempo. Una cerveza muy potente para tener 6,5% alcohol...
