Bottle from Dec 2012. Black oily colour with dark tan head that fades to a thin slick aroma is roasty , coffee and chocolate Amazing taste initially smooth dark chocolate and toasted malt gicing way to a more acidic clean bitter coffee with crisp finish. Long aftertaste - really long aftertaste - all those complex flavours just hanging around keeping the tastebuds watering. Nice alcohol warmth comes in. Smooth plate low carbonation very rich damn fine beer djd07 (15342) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 29, 2016
Bottle at WTF 3. Pours a dark brown with medium tan head that lasts. The aroma is strong roast, chocolate, booze. Medium body, sweet roast, dark chocolate, boozy finish, very good. Sammy (12610) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2013
A very good stout, though not as thick as the thickest newer IS. Lacey and black thicker looking body. Smooth mouthfeel, with some bitterness in the finish. Chocolate and coffee well integrated. I would like more coffee, and more "Baltic" flavour. Very good drinkability.
Doug’s bottle for his B day. Westchesterco (2142) - mclean, Virginia, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Aroma of roasted cocoabrown, minimal head, brown foam, medium sweetness, full body, creamy, long finish, Emeister84 (2505) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2013
Aromas of roasty malts, chocolate, vanilla, and nutty tones. Dark brown-black with a small, tan head. Mostly dry with hints of malty sweetness, quite a savory beer. Medium-full bodied with average carbonation, and finishes with pleasant, clean, roasty flavors.
