Palme (4398) - Bergen, - FEB 1, 2013
0.5l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This is a clear dark brown one with a small bubbly light beige top. It smells quite nice this. Nice roasted sweetness with brown sugar, coffee, malt and good quality chocolate. Really nice, and it tastes just as nice. Soft gentle and balanced. It has chocolate, coffee, brown caramel and a really balanced bitterness. Ends with a soft burned and roasted finish and aftertaste. One of the better Ive had from these guys. 09.01.2013

EdButterfield (19) - Dronfield, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2016
Bottle poured into glass. Aroma dark roast malt, standard for a stout. Pours a nice thick dark body with a small off-white head that lasts about as long as youd expect from a bottled stout. Taste smooth, rich roasted malt with solid chocolate notes and surprisingly fruity characteristics - zesty orange peel? Leads into a slightly spicy finish. A solid stout.

radassace (137) - SCOTLAND - NOV 28, 2016
Pours black with a small tan head. nose is chocolate malt spice and a hint of orange. Mouth feel is lactose and velvet. Taste is milk chocolate, roasted malt, orange peel and some spiciness, with a perfect amount of hop bitterness. This has always been one of my favourite Williams brothers beers. Awesome stuff.

Sjohnh (850) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2016
Nice and dark, though I didnt get any lasting head or lacing. Body is indeed smooth and creamy, with just enough carbonation to keep it interesting. Aroma begins with mild chocolate, then the orange comes through. Flavour is roasted malt, caramel, orange and very subtle spice. Very good.

Tognetta (823) - So Paulo, BRAZIL - MAY 9, 2016
Negra, opaca, espuma marrom de boa formao e persistncia. Aroma bastante achocolatado, cacau, baunilha. Paladar de leve amargor torrado, baixo dulor, leve acidez. Corpo e carbonatao mdios. Final de mdia persistncia trs mais do torrado, caf, deixando o chocolate mais para o aroma. Um pouco mais aguada que o esperado, mas razovel/boa.
