From elcervecero. In Teku glass. Playing Magic 2015. Low ABV but still full of taste and aroma. Great balance between roastyness, sweetness and bitterness with some spicyness too. At the end of the glass yeast seem to concentrate spoiling the last 2 sips though

Mooi zwart, wat te dun schuim. Ruikt nu nog vooral de chocola van de toetjes.. Maar is er toch ook wel echt. Smaakt een beetje alcoholisch. Jammer.. Ook beetje veel carbo, en gebrand bitter.

GenkiGonzo (1088) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 1, 2016
Bottle from Bradleys. Almost black pour with a tan head. Roasty chocolate aroma. Dry, malty flavour with hints of chocolate. Kind of cloying finish.

Bozo_skeleton (1053) - Grenoble, FRANCE - OCT 19, 2015
Noir de jais, petit collet fin et belle dentelle. Aromes pusissants sur le cafe, le chocolat Bien ronde malgre son taux d’alcool relativement faible, une amertume marquée sur la finale. Le notes torréfies sont moins présentes en bouche Bonne longueur

TorbenJensen (1468) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2015
Usually I connect Irish stouts with dry stout and creamy snow-white foam. This stout is different, because the foam is firm and nougat color and aroma far more marked than in the somewhat weak flavored dry stouts. The smells of roasted malt and coffee, and the taste is strong coffee with a little water in nature against the end. A nice stout, which is definitely one to be enjoyed.

gegwilson (3404) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2015
Bottle in the Porterhouse Temple Bar. Pours black with a good beige head. Mild sweet treacle aroma. Searved a little over cold, but the flavour still came through as mild spice with liquorice. Some fruitiness also. Quite high carbonation and a relatively thin body fort he style. Decent beer, but not a great imp.
