3.1
hauxe (1063) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - FEB 11, 2018
Pours virtually black from the bottle. A creamy tan head lingers. Aroma is a mix of burnt grains, burnt coffee grounds, tobacco. Taste is mildly bitter at the outset, trends rapidly bitterer, full of coffee and charred grains. Body is thick with a carbonation about average for the style. Overall not bad but a bit one dimensional and never offers much beyond the strong burnt flavors.

m.mahu (218) - Iasi, ROMANIA - JAN 31, 2018
Bottle at home. Pours pitch black with generous light brown head. OK lacing. Aroma is pleasent coffee and roasted notes, bread, sourish notes from the roasted malts. Flavour is coffee, roasted malts, pleasent bitterness, dry mouthfeel, but not thin at the same time. Very good balanced, old styled Stout. Good carbonation. Excellent Stout. I would buy again.

500ml bottle. Black with a thick tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, tobacco smoke. Taste of roast malts, coffee, caramel, hint of dark fruits, chocolate and smoke, dry bitter finish. Light-medium body, very soft carbonation. Quite thin for a stout but otherwise not bad.

3.7
Pdubyah (844) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 24, 2017
Oddly light in mouthfeel, thin almost, this is a nicely bitter beer with a large nose of chocolate and roasted malt, that doesn't translate exactly to the taste in the glass. It's almost over carbonated the bubbles taking away rather than adding the feel and texture that this has, highlighting the bitterness and not the softness.
