jbruner (4567) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 4, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2013 500 mL bottle. Pours an opaque black from the bottle with bubbly tan head that dissipates to thin cap, leaving light lacing. Aroma of soy sauce, roasted malt, and raisins. Taste follows, with a creamy mouth and slightly bitter finish. Solid english stout.

Bijl (498) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 4, 2017
Gitzwart....zelfs onderin het glas geen licht. Bruine schuimkraag die snel zakt, mooie laagvorming langs het glas. Aroma: Vanille, donker geroosterde mout, chocolade, koffie en donkere bessen. Smaak: Zoethout, iets ziltig, drop, geroosterde mout, chocolade, mokka. Ergens ook een heel licht zuurtje en een volle roasty bitter. De Fuggles en Challenger hops geven nog wat kruidigheid en pit. Medium body, zacht mondgevoel en koolzuur, afdronk is lang, roasty koffie en bitter. Echt heel goed en zonder poespas!

Sil y a un Stout qui est bon, cest bien celui l ! Verse noire, presque huileuse, mousse beige, fine et qui se disperse en petits nuages... Un beau Stout en somme. Le nez est magnifique : chocolat au lait, caf, caramel, miel de fleurs, pain dpices, cassonade, rglisse, confiture de fraise, de figue, de cassis, de myrtille, crme de marron, bois de cdre, malt whisky, noisette et noix... Cest riche, capiteux, gourmand souhait ! Bien cach derrire, des notes de citron vert et de zest dorange... Superbe ! En bouche, une merveille galement. Texture souple, ronde souhait, crmeuse et paisse, amertume du malt et des houblons bien dose, bien linaire, alcool trs puissant, au four et au moulin avec son "petit" 6.5%, levures propres, fermes et nettes et carbonatation assez faible propre aux Stouts. On retrouve tout le charme du nez : les armes et saveurs de malts chocolat et malts noirs, le rglisse, le bois de rsineux, le cacao amer, le caf serr. La longueur est excellente bien entendu, sur les notes de cacao, de caf et de noix, avec une petite astringence au palet en plus de lamertume. Vraiment un superbe Stout qui a tout bon sur toute la ligne. Reste quil ny a pas le petit truc magique qui me fait vibrer, mais on nest pas loin du sommet ! Un must dans le style ! Bouteille 50cl, Boissons du Monde, Saint-Egrve.

19Oracolo78 (171) - ITALY - FEB 25, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2017 Birra di color marrone scuro. Schiuma color cappuccino. All?olfatto sentori di liquirizia e di caff. Al palato, il corpo morbido e spicca un gusto come quello di caff e cioccolato, con note di nocciole tostate. Una buona birra.

thejackpacker (334) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2017
Bottle from systembolaget. Nice little burnt brown foam that disappears. Initial tastes of camp fire air, macadamia nuts, slight vodka hit at times. Tasty; I think it would make a good cask ale, so looking forward to having it again hopefully at the fabulous Jerusalem tavern. Manages the balance of bitter and sweet nicely and provides the tastes of an imperial without the tongue scraping bitterness. Decent.
