DSG (13643) - Tel Aviv, - NOV 11, 2012
Bottle sample at a tasting at avrashis place. Thanks Ariel. Transparent dark brown with a beige head. Pleasant roasty aroma with roasted barley and a bit of coffee. Dry roasty flavor with coffee and an acidic touch. Medium-bodied. A good solid Stout.

Towey1989 (2230) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2017
Bottle. Pours a deep brown colour with a thin beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark fruits, some liquorice, slight coffee, a little chocolate and subtle cardboard. Taste of roasted malts, dark fruits, some dark berries, slight liquorice, a hint of coffee and subtle wet cardboard. Light bodied, moderate carbonation but a watery texture. A dry, roasted bitterness in the finish. Was expecting a stout but it does show more characteristics of a schwarzbier. Roasted malts and spicy fruit but with a subtle cardboard taste you get from lagers. Its not unpleasant but the bodys watery. Below average.

john44 (2698) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2017
Bottle. Dark Brown with Reddish tinge. Overly carbonated - looks & mouthfeel like Coca-Cola. Strong coffee aroma. Malty; roast malts, bitter coffee, liquorice, dark chocolate, caramel. Sour fruity (berries). Quite thin; lacks body. Roast malty throughout with sour bitter edge. Long dry roasty aftertaste. (2009-05)

Idiosynkrasie (6981) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 20, 2017
500ml bottle. Darkest brown colour with small to average, frothy to creamy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, beige head. Roasty, dark malty aroma, hints of coffee, underlying, cautious hints of blueberry. Taste is roasty dark malty, slightly bitter, subtle sweetness, fruity hints of blueberry and bramble; minimally metallic finish.

Bottle - dark with small tan head. Strong citrus - vanilla aroma. Slight ting in mouth, good chocolate taste with bitter finish. Bit watery consistency - not thick and creamy - better when initial fizz fades.

BeerNinjaUK (413) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2016
Bottle from Waitrose. Pours rich dark brown, the body looks like Coke, but with a bubbly beige head. Aroma is weak and somewhat flat, with some wheat, coffee, also a bit of earth and cardboard (although not unpleasant). Rather watery in texture. Somewhat refreshing for a stout.

WaddlingPlatypus (153) - Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2016
500ml bottle. Dark umber, pours with an off-white head. Weak aroma of malt. Similarly weak, the flavour is of burnt malt, with an slight aftertaste not unlike the scent of a freshly-painted room. Odd, to say the least. EDIT: having sampled a second bottle, the paint-like aftertaste is no longer present, having been replaced by a faint milkiness. Much more agreeable than an aftertaste of primer! (taste score raised from 5 to 7)
