4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ home. Nice simply label. Strong and fine aroma. Appearance was spongy and pretty, but vanished too soon. Little bit burned dry coffee in taste and palate. Overall very enjoyable stout.
Bottle from Alko, pouring almost black color with not much head at all. Aroma of well roasted malts, sweetness in chocolate, licorice, caramel and distinct fruitiness in it as well. Taste has some berriness in it, but balanced taste in its entirety, some bitterness but doesn't strike through much, citrusy hoppiness. Medium body, with dry roasted finish. Just a well made beer, and it even has a bit black IPA:ish feeling with the hoppiness. mile (4067) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 24, 2017

Pours black with a nice head and good lacing on the glass.
The aroma is roasty & lightly sweet with a nice bit of licorice character and a mild leafy hoppiness. Some dark chocolate and very mild molasses character come through as it opens up.
The flavor is a great balance of roasty malt bitterness (almost burnt like character) and some sweeter chocolate, Cavendish, and licorice character. It's got a medium level of sweetness and a beautiful bitter backdrop. Balanced and very well constructed beer.
On tap at the source. Black with a thin tan cream subsiding. Scent is nearly scentless, light notes of dark fruit. Some coffee properties. Taste is quite dense and quite mild porter with resin and light on the coffee. This is an attempt to perfect a traditional beer style. Finish is a bit sticky. Some toffee and some unwanted sour back. Great. leaparsons (10859) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2017

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2017 0.33l bottle. Pitch black body with a light-brown head. Aroma and taste of chocolate, coffee, caramel, citrusy hops and grapeseed. Heavier than medium body, silky texture. Great one. MoritzF (10199) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - NOV 6, 2017
(bottle, 33cl) Black coloured hue with a firm and light-brown mid-sized foamy head. Mildly roasted malty aroma with shades of dark chocolate, liquorice and accompanied by very present herbal, sprucey and fruity hops, making me think of a genuine Black IPA. Hoppy and roasty bitter flavour with a delicate sweetness, medium to full bodied with a well-carbonated mouthfeel. Earthy and mildly roasted malty taste with notes of chocolate, caramel, liquorice, as well as a good dash of sprucey, citric and spicy hops, lingering into the slightly leathery and tart finish. Well-done. 06.XI.17 MarcinG (1063) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2017

Bottle at home. It was a good, but I have to say forgettable, stout. Lots of flavour, but it really didn't set my world on fire. Just personal taste. Wixie (694) - BELGIUM - OCT 22, 2017
