Big frothy brownish head with good retention.
Clear dark brown colour with red hues.
Aroma is dark chocolate, roasted, some fruitiness, and coffee hints.
Taste is medium dry roasted, with some coffee, cocoa and dark fruit notes. Sligthly salty but dry finish. Kauge (1976) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 8, 2016
Bottle. BB 15 May 2017. Pours near pitch black with creamy head that retains and laces pretty nicely. The aroma is kinda like buttered up and burnt popcorn... Not good. Tastes... of mud water and old roasty malts. Week old burnt popcorn. With sugar. Near flat carbonation with a kind of late but moderate crispiness, dryish palate, light body. Pretty shitty stuff. Off-putting, could only down 1/4 of this... drainpour. vinivini (2541) - Gomel, BELARUS - OCT 2, 2016
Bottle. Deep brown to black, not transparent. Moderate tan head. Retention below average. Modest lacing. The faint aroma is chocolate, light metal, cacao bones. Light to medium body. Oily. Unusual Port wine notes for that ABV. Also chocolate, roasted malts. Tasty. Light bitterness. A little body hole in ending. Generally decent.nephirem (561) - CROATIA - OCT 1, 2016

Bottle, 0.5l. Pours thick deep ruby, almost black body with small sized brown head. Smell is pleasant, caramel, toffee, a bit roasted with a hint of coffee.
Light body with creamy texture, highly carbonated. Taste is bittersweet, slightly watery. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, toffee, licorice. Not bad, but lacking a bit in terms of coffee and chocolate flavours so it feels somewhat empty. Finish is long and slightly bitter and metallic. As the beer warms up, the metallic taste becomes quite overwhelming and this pretty much ruins this one for me.
Overall, mediocre attempt. wheresthepath (2342) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2016
Bottle at Borrowdale Youth Hostel. Black with a thick beige head. Too fizzy. Fruity with plenty of chocolate. Sweet. Nice pudding beer but the finish is rather short.

Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma and flavour are roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. Lighter body than expected and a bit oily. Didn’t know what to expect from this beer. In truth, I was worried it was going to taste fishy, but it’s not bad at all. phfyysik (1301) - Tartu, ESTONIA - SEP 25, 2016
Pours black with medium beige head. Aroma is light, raisins, light caramel, old hay, some toast. Taste is fruity, creamy, sweetness, brown sugar, syrup, watery. Light and artificially sweet. Not for me. Alebarasi (114) - Dobrova, SLOVENIA - SEP 19, 2016
Pours brown-black color, similar to coke. Small light brown head. Good lacing. Usual stout smell, with iron, molasses and fig notes (kind of minerally, though). Aromas of chocolate, mild coffee, roasted barley and cola syrup with smokey finish. Slight smokey aftertaste. I must say, one of the most intriguing beers I’ve had - especially, when talking about stout types. Interesting sweet and bitter taste with rich maltiness. I agree with its quote - "smooth, easy drinking" YantarCoast (1401) - Moscow, RUSSIA - SEP 15, 2016
500ml bottle from aPivo.ru. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma is dark chocolate and roastiness. Taste is slightly sweet, roasted malt, slightly bitter finish. Blueshawk (465) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2016
- tiefschwarze Farbe mit leichter Schaumbildung
- leichte Aromen nach Röstmalz, Kaffee, Bitterschokolade und etwas Rauch
- passende Carbonisierung
- der Antrunk ist schön leicht, malzig und hat eine angenehme Säure
- im Mittelteil kommt der Kaffee und die Röstaromen hinzu
- der Körper bleibt in Verbindung mit dem relativ geringen Alkoholgehalt dann
auch typisch schlank
- im Abgang kommt dann die Rauchnote nochmals etwas zum Vorschein
Fazit: Ein zwar schlankes, aber trotzdem hervorragendes Stout
