Black stout with a thin beige head. Aroma is a coffee and chocolate blend. The initial taste is sweet chocolate and a touch of coffee, with a malty finish that I think has a bit of hop coming through as well. Very nice.

ABS (1017) - Stokke, NORWAY - APR 30, 2017
Bottle from Vinmonopolet Sandefjord. Pours black with a small white to light grey head. Red fruit and well rounded coffee nose. Coffee, sweet liquorice, red fruit and berries, some smoke and leather flavour. Very smooth body. Medium to thick. Oily. Some warmth. Soft carbonation. Very good stout. Impressive.

Cask at Reading Beer Festival. Pleased to see this available as bottle generally tastes great. Strong coffee overtones with plenty of oats too. Perfect for any time of day.

LazyPyro (929) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours black with a one-finger tan head. Aroma: smokey roasted malt, chocolate. Taste: sweet malt, chocolate, roasted smokey malt notes, dark fruit, light bitter finish. Medium body, smooth velvety mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice stout... drank side by side with the Bourbon Coffee version which I felt was a slight improvement over this.

Navers (62) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 25, 2017
Bottle from Valhallas Goat, Glasgow. Beer served in 10C, Teku Glass. Pours black with no head at all. Im not sure how long that beer was been stored in the shop, but coffee flavor is completely not noticeable here. Lactose maybe a little more, but still hidden, somewhere under stoutish sourness and roasted malt. Oats not making that beer creamy, but texture is oily and pleasant, what is a strong side of that beer. Overall it taste, smell and feel like classic stout. Good beer for someone who like classic styles without additives or special ingredients added. Acid stout with nice, long aftertaste.
