3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black body with a small light brown head. The aroma is very similar to Alpha Klaus, but has more of a darker roast character. Slightly burnt malt, caramelized sugar, chocolate, and of course, hops. The flavor starts out sweet and roasty, but that only lasts a second. There is a lot more hops in the flavor than the aroma. Pine, orange, slight garlic, and resinous flavors all creep out of what seems like a very roasty stout. Finish is bitter, dry, and sweet all at the same time. Not as good as I had hoped.
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with medium creamy beige head that lasts. The aroma is roast, grain, caramel. Medium mouth, roasted malt, cocoa, licorice, light booze, good. MacBoost (1957) - Victor, New York, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Trade extra from StFun. Thanks! Pours a thinish black with a tan head. Aromas of dark fruit, anise, some roast. Taste is lightly bitter and lightly sweet. Flavors of roasted malt, anise, black twizzlers, some tobacco. Mediocre, but nice boost level. hopscotch (11419) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle... Pours tar-black with a small, creamy, beige head. Good retention. The nose furnishes chocolate crème, toasted tree nuts and a suggestion of vanilla. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor showcases roastiness, sweet dark-chocolate and nuttiness. Carbonic, bittersweet finish. Sort of a fusion of a milk stout and foreign stout. Bottle courtesy of BBB63! Countbeer (6589) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 24, 2014

Pours jet black, nice tan foam head. Smells like doughnuts and booze. Lively mouth feel, fizzy for a stout. Chocolate on the palate and aftertaste. thomas15 (694) - Alabama, USA - JUL 19, 2014
