Draft @ Uiltje bar. Black with an offwhite head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malts, hint of sour in tjere as well. Taste is bitter, roasted malts, coffee, hint of sweetness in the end. Not bad. Scotty001 (565) - Portlethen, SCOTLAND - OCT 8, 2015

27th May 2015: on tap at the Carlsbad Pizza Port. Very dark, maybe black, the head cream coloured. Malts and plenty of them. Nose is all about chocolate and coffee esters, as is the taste with an added liquorice stick for good measure. The roasted barley does the trick here, a very easy drinking Stout full of flavour and depth. MadRobin (2988) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - JAN 23, 2015

(Ocean Beach): Une soupe bien chocolatée et rôtie avec une présence verte et mentholé qui prend de la place sur la langue. Le corps est moyen à mince avec une bubvabilité intéressante. slowrunner77 (12144) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 27, 2014
"A fairly standard export stout. Did nothing to wow anyone, but was well crafted. Dark chocolate and roasted barley mostly. Light hops. Ironically a lot like Alesmith Robust Porter with a little more carbonation." Theydon_Bois (19718) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2014

Tap @ PP Carlsbad. Black pour with a tan head. Dry roast, coffee, oats, and background chocolate in the aroma. Taste is dry, semi-bitter coffee with roasted malt and chocolate followed by some malt sweetness with spots of darker fruit into the finish. Relatively clean mouthfeel. Very nice coffee/roast forward stout.
