Silvan7 (1251) - Samarate, ITALY - OCT 6, 2014
Bottle @ home. Marrone opalescente schiuma beige grossolana, poco persistente. Aroma tostato, fondi di caffè, salamoia di olive, un po’ di tabacco. Poco complesso. Gusto secco, amaro, tostato, di caffè, tabacco, poco luppolata, o quantomeno con luppoli non propriamente amaricanti. Poco calda, poco carbonata. Consistenza "appiccicosa". Non molto equilibrata, ma abbastanza armonica.

SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 23, 2014
Noire et tête beige comme le désert. Au nez, café, malts rôtis et caramel foncé. En bouche, malts torréfiés, fumée, café surchauffé et légère acidité. Au palais, corps plutôt mince, effervescence normale et texture presque aqueuse. Finale extra sèche bien noire.

N3lson1 (1005) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - AUG 29, 2014
From twelve ounce bottle to pint. Beautiful jet black color. Decent light brownish, thin head. Great aromas and tastes of chocolately smoothness! Great complexity while keeping it simple and easy.

ABT_S54 (352) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2014
33cl bottle served in a Trappist glass. Pours a dark brown to black colour with a short-lived beige head. Aroma is dry chocolate and burnt notes. Good mouthfeel for the ABV and very flavoursome (chocolate, hint of mocha and a lasting dryness) for what it is. Overall a very good effort. Probably my favourite sub 5% beer.

ramboraffe (2257) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2014
355 ml bottle. Black with tanned head. Smell is roasted malt with coffee chocolate. Taste is full bodied roasted malt with coffee and chocolate balanced with nice bitterness. A bit light. Dry with medium bitterness and medium carbonation.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2014
Bottle from B&M Bargains. And a right bargain at 60p!! Deep rich whisky and roast malt aroma, pours a lovely thick black, with a coffee coloured head. Oily palate, with some tobacco notes and tar. Really enjoyable.

johndoughty (5466) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2014
Bottle. Black and medium body. The head took some time to dissipate. Full mouth feel and an impressive combination of a dry stout with a sweet finish. A good one.
