Poured out black. 40SRM.
Nose is sweet, malty and beery. Hints of coffee and liniment or Chinese medicine.
Mouthfeel is cold coffee. Palate has roasty flavors of burnt multigrain toast, black bread. Other flavors are coffee, ripe dark fruit with plums and honey prunes being most obvious. Hops are noble and add length to the woody, burnt log bitter flavor.
Finishes medium with a burnt twig bitter.
Overall a pretty nicely rounded out stout. Not too watery, pronounced carbonation with a solid palate of roasty, bready flavors without being sweet and with a hint of fruitiness finishing well. ajschiller (13) - London, - MAY 27, 2017
330ml bottle. A lovely dark, creamy coffee centred beer that effervescences in the mouth. Subtle tones of clove. A well rounded drink that slips down very easy! DSG (14784) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 13, 2017

Tap at Black Door, Helsinki. Opaque black, creamy beige head. Minty, toasted aroma. Medium-bodied. Minty hoppyness, licorice, toasted malts, cold coffee. Short finish. Empty. Feels overrated. SinH4 (4794) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAR 23, 2017
Bottle, many thanks minutemat! Black color with big dark beige head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, and a surprising amount of grassy hops with some citrus. Taste is light, a bit tart, with liquorice, grassy and piney hop oils, then more dark malts with coffee, some ash. Dry finish with liquorice, citrus-earthy hops and a hint of chalk. Soft silky mouthfeel. Very flavourful for this strength, and yet quite elegant in its lightness. Very good!

Pours black, opaque. Brown head. Aroma has cloves. Citrus flavors on the finish. Reminds me a of a cloved orange. Full body, maybe a little chalky. Quite decent. sarauckelman (540) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2017
