AtronSeige (1349) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - JUN 8, 2016
Aroma: Medium jalapenos, medium-light coffee. Light acidity. No hops. Appearance: Clear, black, nearly opaque body. Small, light brown head. Fair retention. Flavour: Medium-high roast. Medium-high bitterness, enhanced by dark malts. Medium woody, tobacco. Medium-light jalapenos. Light ash. Light lactic. Dry finish with lingering roast. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Medium-light astringency. Overall: As a sweet stout I expected more chocolate and sweetness. The roast is too aggressive. Jalapenos is a well known, but not understood off-aroma/flavor with stouts. Lacking in body. Astringency is a problem. 440 ml bottle, poured. 16A. Sweet stout

Pite w Kapsztadzie w 2008r. Kolor czarne, piana solidna. Aromat karmelu i czekolady. Lekko kwaskowy przechodzący w mocno palony. Lekka goryczka, kremowy stout bardzo pijalny, na podniebieniu łagodny, przyjemna palonośc. Bardzo dobre piwo.

aleksander9 (1420) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 21, 2014
Black with a monstrous big head, Aroma is nail polish, battery acid, funk, death metal and some roasted malt. Unnaturally sweet and sour mouth feel with medium carbonation. Aftertaste is extremely bitter, funk, moldy bread and lasting tart battery acid finish. Overall: Third beer from this brewery who tastes absolutely like satans anus. Will buy more just for amusement. Poured down the drain.

Bottle from Loco Liquor in Blairgowrie, Johannesburg
Black color with medium sized brownish head. Light aroma of roasted malt, bread, sesame. Roasted malt flavor, with something strange, burnt vegetables; ordinary bitterness; quite dry, and a bit metallic.
Not very good.

JorisPPattyn (9604) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 12, 2013
No head to speak of. Jet-black beer. Lactose traceable in the nose. Milkchocolate, thouroughly roasted grains & chaff, chocolate wafers. Slightly sourish onset for medium-sweet, roasted/burnt main flavour. Remarkably little bitterness, and the one in the finish is indistinctly hoppy. Again bit lactic. Spritzy, feels more carbonated than it appears. Smooth, slightly creamy MF, but not very well-bodied. OK milkstout. Many thanks to M&L!

PriorL (3069) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAY 12, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 Plastic bottle at home. Shared with Mathieu87. Appearance: pitch black beer, nice stable mocha head. Nose: little coffee, some chocolate, but already rather watery in the nose. Taste: typical stout taste, though more watery, little smoked towards the end. Good stout for only 5% alcohol!
