oppear (112) - Tallinn, - JUL 3, 2013
Normal appearance for a stout and the smell and taste are good. Ash, roast, some hops, drie. Perhaps a small negative would be the aftertaste developing eventually into a wet old rag in the mouth, but this is still one of the better stouts out there to buy.

Pdubyah (836) - 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.

brewtalita (349) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 24, 2017
Pitch black, low quickly disappearing beige head. Aroma dark chocolate, tobacco, burnt sugar. Palate oily, low carbonation. Taste dry and bitter, hints of coffee and chocolate. Balanced, great beer.

BeardedAvenger (1280) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2017
Bottle at Star Inn, Guildford. 16/11/17. Vague cheep choc aroma. Darkest brown. Thick beige head. Light bitter with a hint of sourness and some underlying sweetness. Like the aroma, the taste is of cheep chocolate, with berries and cardboard. Thin bodied. Relatively light. Fizzy carbonation. Abrupt finish. Double stout? Not even single, more like fat free. Super bland and light weight.
