Butelka 500ml. Piana bezowa,dosc obfita z lekkim kremowym topem. Kolor czarny z minimalnym rubinowym refleksem. W zapachu czekolada i kawa. Moje bylo troche zbut schlodzone i dopiero pozniej zaczelo ujawniac prawdziwy bukiet. W smaku palone ciemne slody,kawa,gorzka czekolada, pieczywo razowe i karmel. Niezly balans. Gorzko-czekoladowy finisz.

BlackHaddock (6757) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2016
500ml bottle between three on an Irish tasting evening at home on 11th Nov 2016. This is a lovely, easy drinking Stout. It looks a looks and tastes the part: deep darkest brown with a full tan coloured head. A dry, slightly burnt maltiness in the flavour with a mild bitterness from those same malts and hops. I really enjoyed this.

I bought this bottle in one Marks and Spencer in Paris. I drank quietly at home after a night with my family. In my opinion, it is a correct stout, easy to drink. The body is dark, average carbonation for a stout, thin foam. The taste is correct, not so strong, roasted malt, little coffee, hop, a bit watery.

Syfher (361) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 7, 2016
Bottle of 50cl, in a Guinness glass; room-temperature. Were in front of a light stout. The body is creme-brown, with a little head. The aroma is malty, as the aftertaste. The main taste is a mix between coffee, chocolate and water... Great light stout

Bottle. Clear ruby/brown body with a thin beige head. Faint lacing. Aroma of sawdust, burnt toast and ash. Flavour of chocolate, wood and a sharp (not unpleasant) metallic finish. Thin body with a smooth texture. Light fizz. Smells of burnt malts and its very thin.
