UPDATED: MAR 9, 2016 It is a correct stout. The color is black and creamy and thin foam. The carbonation is low but it is normal. I love with my wife this roasted taste of malt and coffee. It is a perfect one to have a great time at the end of night. jake65 (3701) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle: Pours a lighter than expected brown and despite my best efforts produced no more than a tiny ring of brown head. The nose is light and airy, slightly sweet. Vanilla and cocoa with faint roast. A little bit of spice in the taste, but I can’t pinpoint anything. Modest roast and light floral bitters. gunnfryd (14899) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 16, 2015
Baran 060914. Dark brown colour with a btan head. Aroma is roasted malt, dried fruits, nuts, chocolate. Flavour is roasted malt, dried fruits, coffee, nuts, chocolate. Easy drinkable nice beer. King_Alex_II (1228) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 3, 2015
Pitch black with brown/beige foam. Roasty, chocolate coffee nose. This beer is more cold coffee than beer. The taste is dry, the carbonation is moderately and quite decent. The taste is slightly oily/creamy and almost dusty, like small powder particles were in there. The roasted malts result in a beverage you can use to counter the caffeine rush from your good night coffee without changing the taste.
I don’t like coffee, so for me this is an agreeable version of carbonated water infused with 2 or 3 filled coffee filter. Better than suspected, worse than hoped, more or less as expected. mario_giri (255) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 22, 2015
Fast schwarz, kaum Schaum. Meine Nase ist zu, drum nur leichte Röstaromen auszumachen, wenig Schokolade. Mittel Co2, eher leicht, dünn. Röstmalzig und leicht süss, kaum Bittere. Abgang bleibt malzig.

belle stout, bien de la couleur avec une petite mousse beige. manque de longueur en bouche et assez buvable, pas trop lourde mais quand même pleine en bouche. eduardovl (1449) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle poured in a chalice.
Nice Trois Dames specimen but I was expecting a bit more from an Imperial Stout.
A: Deep caramel color with a medium bubbled beige head when poured. Reasonable retention. Dissipates leaving some lacings around. A thin beige layer remains for some time
S: Sweet and sour (bit orange acid). Roasted malts and plums. Spicy end
T: Sweet upfront. Roasted malts. Plums. Fresh hops. A bit sour. Nice bitterness
M: Medium body and carbonation. No alcohol

Visual: Pours dark brown with a slight purple hue, small & lasting very creamy head, a bit of lacing, a decent layer of retention, lots and lots of active streams.
Nose: light roasted brown sugar malts, hints of chocolate and coffee. (lvl-6)-pungency
Attack: crisp, incoming acidity
Mid-palate: unexpected sourness, (lvl-4)-sweetness, (MAIN) cola, light roasted bitter malts, lemon-grapefruit citrus acidic-sourness
Finish: soft bitter hops mixed with lingering malty bittersweet sourness.
Summary: Decent flavour but I just can’t fall in love with such a sour stout. yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle, at Baran. An almost black one, topped by a dense, dark beige head leaving curtains. Dried fruits, roasted malts, nuts and a touch of chocolate in the aroma. It’s full-bodied and semi-dry on the palate, with a nice carbonation level. Dried fruits and some chocolate in the flavor, roasted, and a bit sweet, with a medium length finish. A decent one, but a bit boring I think. 140906 cmacklin (1179) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 23, 2014
