Bottle at Sourced Market, Victoria. Sweet coffee fruity aroma. Dark and glossy. Thick beige head. Light bitter with a sour berry edge. Sugary coffee. Much smoother than the flat white I just had. Thick bodied. Slick and creamy. Average carbonation. Low key finish. For the ABV this is a really light, easily drinkable, stout. Good stuff.

Grzesiek79 (4362) - Radom, POLAND - SEP 10, 2017
Version with 7 % ABV. Fantastyczne ciemne piwo jak czekolada o zawartosci kakao 99%. Piana pelna pechezykow ciemna, bezowa. Spora lecz opada szybko, ale znaczy i oblepia szklo. Fantastyczny aromat, ciemnego pieczywa, makowca dobrze wypieczonego. W smaku piernik zalany hiszpanskim winem malaga. Pelno rodzynek, trufle i mufinka czekoladowa. Alkohol ukryty. Mimo lekkiej slodyczy jest tu spora dawka palonego slodu i goryczki chmielowej. Na zakonczenie czekolada gozka ze srednim wloskim espresso. Niemal rewelacja. Goraco polecam po wieczornym posilku.

Rasowy, klasyczny stout. Zapach intensywny, aromat gorzkiej czekolady, tostów, lukrecji. W smaku dosyć słodkie z nutami prażonego słodu w postaci deserowej czekolady z wytrawnym ciut popiołowym finiszem. Pyszne.

Aromat: mocny i intensywny, czekolada, kawa, palone słody, pralinki. Wygląd: czarne, nieprzejrzyste, piękna, wysoka warstwa brązowej i drobnopecherzykowej piany. Smak: dosyć wytrawne, gorzka czekolada, dużo kawy, słody palone, kakao. Lekka kawowa cierpkość przechodząca w wiśnie w czekoladzie. Nuty rodzynek i suszonych śliwek i fig, wanilii . Ciała sporo, dobrze ułożone, w smaku wyraźne i intensywne, mocno palone, goryczka spora, wchodzi łatwo i lekko. Bardzo dobre piwo. 8/5/8/4/15
