330ml bottle. Black beer, small beige head. Nose is roast and chocolate, mild sweetness, dry notes. Flavor is subdued chocolate and roast, some acidity in the roast near the finish, which has a fair hop presence. Very dry and somewhat acidic aftertaste. Mouthfeel on the thin side. Not bad.

Pours very dark brown with a tan head. Aroma promises lots of roasted malts, dark chocolate. Rich roasted flavors, chocolate, faint port wine in aroma. Dry. Taste is light bitter chocolate, ash. Lighter than average for the style. Good stuff. Scipio (1309) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2017
Pours black with a full tan head that settles slowly. The aroma has a fairly heavy amount of chocolate, vanilla, and roasted malt, with lesser amounts licorice and caramel. The taste is very dry and has some subtle bitterness. This is more roasted, with good complimentary chocolate and licorice. I get light coffee, smoke, and molasses as well. Short aftertaste of licorice and chocolate. Its medium in body, with a chewy texture, and average in carbonation, though heavier for this style. Altogether this isn’t a bad offering. It kind of reminds me of a lite version of the Lion Stout. Ascelja (1955) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 18, 2017
Many thanks to zvsn!
Bottle. Black body, small brown head. Aroma to raisins, dates, chocolate and unfortunately metal. Taste is roasty bitter; dark chocolate, hints of coffee, dark fruits and metal. Medium body and carbonation.
Not a wonder, but OK.
