Cerveza color negro obscuro. Corona de espuma pequeña de baja retención. Aromas a maltas tostadas, café y chocolate amargo. Al paladar consistencia líquida, fácil de beber con notas predominantes a maltas tostadas, café y un amargor moderado con sutil dulzor. Cerveza que a mi gusto estaría mucho mejor si tuviera más cuerpo. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tranquillity (2205) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 7, 2017
Draft at Kaisla, Helsinki. Black body with a brown thick head. The aroma is chocolatey, with nuts, oak and gloves. Complex. The flavor profile has some sourness to it with mellow bitter chocolate. Brewed to perfection but not my favorite style of stout.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Tom Ls place. Thanks Lior D. Dark brown to black with a beige head. Nice aroma of dark chocolate, some nuts, a bit of roast. Rather dry flavor, slightly sweetish, with chocolate, roast, and a bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Nice.

CanCrusher (1057) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - DEC 29, 2016
Bottle 0,50L. Very dark brown color with large, frothy, light brown head. Aroma of dark chocolate, strong black coffee, burnt malts, a touch of tar (or maybe smoke). Taste is moderate bitter, strong coffee like. Finish is moderate bitter with a bitter dark chocolate and long lasting aftertaste. Medium body, dry texture, soft carbonation, metallic finish. Good, old school, English stout.
