ThreeCats (883) - ISRAEL - AUG 8, 2016
Black with a nice dark mocha head. Aroma has lots of coffee, bitter chocolate, roast, ash, cocoa butter, and some dark berries. Taste is roast, coffee, bitter chocolate, ash, burnt, full but not sweet. Palate very roasty, full but not sweet. Its very much an English stout, in the sense that if you cut it with equal amount carbonated water youd just get a regular (and very good) dry stout. Very nice beer.

330 ml bottle 2016-07-22
9% ABV. very smooth, nicely chocolaty, roasty and berryish. Almost like a dried plum or plum jam kind of sweetness. Kind of an Imperial Foreign Stout.

mariuspoenari (1992) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2016
33cl bottle. Pitch black pour with a thin tan head. Smells like dark cherries, cocoa, chocolate and roasted malts. The taste follows the same notes, with an addition of both brewed as well as roasted coffee. Medium to full bodied, soft carbonation and a roasty bitter-sweet finish.

jakubwloszcz (206) - Piastw, POLAND - JUL 6, 2016
Pite w pubie Browariat w Katowicach. Barwa ciemnobrunatna, prawie czarna. Piana niska, jasnobeżowa, drobnopęcherzykowa, ładnie oblepia szkło. Aromat słodki, niezbyt złożony, nie zapowiada jeszcze, jak genialne jest to piwo. Na pierwszym planie jest czekolada, w tle kawa i karmel. W smaku jest dużo mniej słodyczy, pojawia się za to spora paloność. Jest też czekolada, ale zdecydowanie bardziej w stronę gorzkiej niż mlecznej. Z każdym łykiem można odkryć coś nowego: są subtelne nuty kawowe, waniliowe, nawet orzechowe. Faktura jest bardzo gładka, aksamitna, piwo jest bardzo pijalne. Fantastyczny stout.

AngloJaxon88 (9) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2016 does not count
Just an outstanding example. Rich, thick, oily, full bodied mouthfeel. ABV well hidden, but the hum of alcohol is really well balanced with the flavour of the malts. tastes of chocolate, sherry, rich dried fruits. Not too roasty. which is working well with this beer (I do like them roasty too though). Even the Mrs likes it, and she drinks wine!
