Beer pours (in Chimay glass) a dark, rich black liquid light can not penetrate with copper caramel head that lingers. Aroma is of dark, rich coffee and molasses with some chocolate, plum, raisin. Flavor is a slight hop covered by a dark, menacing, lightly-burned coffee that slowly eases away leaving a faint chocolate. Excellent beer. No alcohol detected. Sampled at 72 degrees Fahrenheit.

Tasted 14/12/2007. 500ml bottle from Regional Wines and Spirits. Pours black, with a disappearing airy tan head. It’s near perfect from here. Where do I start? Fantastic balance and integration. Splendid entry, sublime exit. Subtle yet quite overt. Everything on the nose, follows through on the palate. Just ripe plums; aged port; dark bitter chocolate; fruity freshly-roasted coffee beans; fruitcake crust - just a touch overcooked; peat; a hint of greenish oak; a mix of dried fruit; a little milk chocolate, toasted grainy bread; sweet nuts. Light-medium weight and medium carbonation. Superb beer, superb brewery. These guys have a magic yeast. Is Orkney the world’s best ’new world’ brewery? The world’s best, bar none? I’d be hard pressed to pick a better one.

Pours a beautiful onyx with a healthy, frothy head that clings to the glass. Aroma is almost exclusively chocolate, with a bit of smoked malt thrown in for good measure. Flavor is a titilating blend of smoke and malt, heavy on the smoke. Some peat is detectable. This is a stout all unto its own. I WOULD LOVE ANOTHER ONE OF THESE.

Świetny stout. Z ekologicznymi składnikami. Piana mocna i brązowa. Ciecz jak guinness czarna jak smoła, piwo oleiste i gęste przy czym treściwe i syte. Wspaniały aromat ciemnej gożkiej czekolady i czarnej kawy. Finisz wytrawny i głógi. Wysublimowane. Polecam bo to godny Stout.

Amazingly smooth. Smokiness and roasted tastes soothe the palate. The best overall stout I’ve experienced with a low alcohol content to boot--- the more to enjoy. Only gets better with the quantity. Highly recommended for the ’go-to’ stout!

Drunk in a snifter at BrauKunstLive! 2013 Festival in München, Germany. I think it was because my taste buds had had an overload of Simcoe and Citra already and needed some comfort beer, we went for 2 dark beers. I drank the most satisfying beer of the day, a 4% Dragonhead, which despite it’s low alcohol, packed a smokey, rich, thick feel all around my tongue.
