Balazs (787) - Den Haag, - APR 20, 2010
Bottle at home. Poured black with a foamy tan head that reduced to lacing quickly. Nice deep ruby spots in bright light. Nose is strong plum, dark chocolate and fruits. Aroma is chocolate, raisin, plum, light roasted hints and just a drop of vanilla. Dense, oily, creamy body with little carbonation. Very nice slighty dry, bitter aftertaste, but the creamy texture in the palate sticks around. Alcohol is well hidden. Overall a very nice brew, with many year of experience behind it. Smooth, easy to drink, complex stout, enjoyed it very much.

cinek (114) - POLAND - NOV 25, 2016
butelka.0,5l. czarne jak smoła, gruba czapka, brązowej, grubopęcherzykowej piany, szybko redukującej się do zera. aromat czekolady, popiołu, słodw palonych, czuć ziołowość i alkohol. po ogrzaniu więcej czekolady, ale też więcej alkoholu. w pierwszym odczuciu nieznacznie słodkie, ale pźniej goryczka dominuje, popiołowość zalega na podniebieniu, podobnie jak goryczka od czekolady.

badhack (543) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 25, 2016
Not as heavy or creamy as I expected but okay. Good dark malt, chocolate flavor. No smoke or charcoal. Hops are balanced, touch herbal or earthy seemed. A little nutty, touch of dark fruit and caramel.

superspak (4876) - Michigan, USA - NOV 12, 2016
500 ml bottle into imperial pint glass, bottled on 11/2/2015. Pours crystal clear nearly opaque dark brown color with a small dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, toasted dark bread, vanilla, cream, light smoke/nuttiness, herbal, light pepper, slight dark fruit, and roast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity dark/roast/bready malt, lactose, and light earthy hop/fruity yeast notes; with great strength. Taste of big milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, toasted dark bread, vanilla, cream, light smoke/nuttiness, herbal, light pepper, slight dark fruit, and roast/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/spicy hop and roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, toasted dark bread, vanilla, cream, herbal, light smoke, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, lactose, and light earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; with a great roast/hop bitter/sweet balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Slight dryness from roast/hop bitterness as well. Light carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky/velvety, and slightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is awesome. Zero warming alcohol for 6.5%. Overall this is an outstanding English style cream stout! All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, lactose, and light earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; very smooth and easy to drink. Spot on English malt complexity, with an awesome mouthfeel. A highly enjoyable offering.

beer_queue (45) - California, USA - NOV 4, 2016
Pitch black with a medium, frothy, tan head that thins out very quickly; very little to no lace. On the nose: a lot of bananas & grapes at first; roasted nuts, espresso coffee, creamy/buttery malts, and a little brown sugar. Flavors are very intense and bittersweet; a lot of grapes, nuts, & coffee up front. There are some bananas, green grapes, tart apples, brown sugar, and vanilla that appear subtly during the development. It finishes strong with extra dark chocolate & hops. Once it warms up, all of the flavors get a nice bump. The bittersweet balance is maintained throughout its glass life. Full body, low carbonation, bone-dry finish. Overall, its delicious and awesome that this beer maintains its complexity for being at a low ABV.

villevav (456) - FINLAND - OCT 30, 2016
[2016-10-22] Dark, invisible, a bit hazy. Burned or roasted malt in the aroma, also something that brings oak-barrels and whisky into mind. The taste is mildly bitter with strong malt base and bitter finish. Full body, quite heavy.

Bottle. Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Just about black. Ring of tan head. Nose has chocolate coated toffee. Fudgy malts. Some ash. Charred wood. Taste is woody bitter, with a little cocoa sweetness. Smooth mouthfeel. Maybe a tad thin. Charred wood finish. Very nice.
