UPDATED: OCT 17, 2017 Source: Chilled bottle that happened to fall off a lorry and not break Expectations: unknown Findings: a really pleasant stout! A coffee coloured head - kinda like from doing the dishes. Vague subtle sweet choca-mocca aroma. A caramel - macaroon - coffee taste. Bitter hoppy after- taste with a hint of amaretti buiscuit. Great palate + finish ! Will I drink it again ? If the opportunity arises - yes !

Dark brown, almost black color with creamy stable beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, coconuts and caramel. Taste is roasty and medium bitter with notes of licorice. Dry mouthfeel. Pretty good.

Bottle, 50cl. Pours pitch black with a creamy, stable and in everyway possible delightful tan head. Good lacing and retention. Aroma: Roasty, malty with coffee, milky chocolate, earthy notes and some hoppiness. The taste is dry with chocolate and roasted malt in the flavor as you would expect. Smokey and medium bitter. Kinda classic and very English styled stout. Nothing there to surprise, just good old fashioned. Light-medium body with only 5.2% alc. Silky creamy mouthfeel. Liked it.

500ml bottle bought at Vinmonopolet Langnes. Rocky, bubbly, two-finger thick, fawn-coloured head with fine retention. Crocheted lacework. Black as the polar night. Chocolate malty nose, nicely roasted. Dark malty flavours of chocolate, cocoa, dark bread and a developing touch of dark fruits. Nicely roasted bitter end. Medium boded. Smooth mouth feel. Enjoying.

Partagée avec mon cher Appiantiqua dans des verres "3 loups",belle robe ébène surmontée d'une mousse ivoire de bonne persistance avec une carbonatation intense.Le nez est très riche,offre des arômes de fruits noirs,chocolat et café,alcool.La bouche est à l'image du nez avec des petites notes brûlées(café à l'ancienne) nous laissant sur une courte amertume mais bonne!Un ensemble bien équilibré et consistant malgré la légèreté. Un délicieux Stout!

kaserov (924) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 6, 2017
Color negro con capa de espuma marrón de tres dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación suave. Textura acuosa. Aroma muy torrefacto, con bastante café y chocolate, lúpulo presente y reminiscencias herbales y terrosas. En boca es sorprendentemente seca, de final ligeramente amargo. Mucha malta torrefacta, café puro, chocolate, reminiscencias de chocolate con leche y ese mismo carácter herbal y terroso que hay en aroma. Postgusto a café, chocolate y frutos secos.

appiantiqua (247) - Lyon, FRANCE - OCT 6, 2017
Dégustée avec mon petit Kittenbieer dans un verre "Les 3 Loups". Température de début 8 à 9°. Superbe robe ébène surmontée d'une mousse ivoire de bonne persistance; carbonatation intense. Nez riche et complexe avec des arômes de fruits noirs, de café et de chocolat. Le goût apporte des saveurs houblonnées et l'on retrouve les notes de fruits noirs et de cacao ainsi qu'une touche de café "à l'ancienne". En deuxième bouche une plaisante amertume fait son apparition. La finale est longue et laisse une impression de consistance et d'épaisseur malgré un taux d'alcool modeste. Un excellent stout doux et raffiné mais plein de caractère.

SinH4 (6114) - Garching b. M?nchen, GERMANY - SEP 29, 2017

3.6
GhostS (488) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - SEP 18, 2017
Aromă medie, cu mult malț ars și puțin malț prăjit, note de gudron și lemn ars, ceva cafea măcinată învechită. Gust mediu, mai mult sec, decât dulce, cu puțină amăreală arsă, în rest mult malț ars, ceva cafea de proastă calitate, coajă de pâine neagră ușor arsă. Un stout simplu și bine făcut, cu accent pe malț ars, fără a fi deranjant sau neplăcut.

3.4
omikr0n (948) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 20, 2017
Bottle. Pours dark brown with no head to speak of. Aroma is wood, roasted malt, coffee. Taste is coffee, burnt malt, cream.
