Had this one at Lord Mikes Pub in Amsterdam a few times. This really took me back as the first stout that really made me say wow thats good beer. Since then Ive had it a few times on draft and from widget cans. It is a smooth great dry stout. Pours very dark brown almost black with a lasting creamy tan lacy, thick head. Smells of dark and roasted malt, coffee and chocolate with some smoky elements. Eventually bits of dark berry comes out as it warms. Medium watery body that goes down very well. Very smooth but a little watery. It has elements of dark malt like a Mild and rather thin for a stout. Sweet with a bitter roast bitter finish. The roast is light with chocolate and coffee. Super drinkable and smooth.

Dark brown color with the creamy head of light tan foam. The faintest aroma of roasted barley. Creamy mouthfeel with light flavors of dark chocolate and dark roast coffee beans. Thin and weak in comparison to a Guinness.

Dark with thick creamy off white head. Not a hell of a lot on the aroma. Delicious roasty smooth flavour, with mild bitter finish. Creamy smooth mouthful.

hajsman (106) - Gdask, POLAND - OCT 24, 2016
From tap. It looks nice, black with creamy head. Nothing special in the aroma, some deeply hidden chocolate and white cream. Its light and has very nice smooth texture. Very simple but enjoyable at the same time
