Glouglouburp (6096) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2010
In short: An original roasted and very herbaceous stout. Very interesting.
How: Bottle 12oz. Consumed when about 6 months of age. Sent to me by after4ever, thanks a lot Tom.
The look: Black body topped by a medium tan head
In long: The original wicked nose is very herbaceous with also leafy hops and medium roastiness. Taste is also very herbaceous. Iíve had my share of stouts over the years but itís the first time come across one that has that strong herbaceous character (like toasted green tea or something) as the main attraction. Also burnt toasts, toasted wood, earthy notes, some roasted coffee beans, a bit of black chocolate, dried tobacco leafs, black liquorice. Finish is rather dry and leaves a long herbal after-taste. Lively body/carbonation. This is both a highly drinkable session stout and an original one. Great beer, and from an Empirical standpoint, Iím a just a drunk with a disgusting mouth sucking it.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - NOV 13, 2009
Black with brown/dark brick edges. Small, creamy, tan head settles almost completely. Aroma of light roast, dark chocolate, herbaceous licorice, freshly dried wood, nougat, subtle raisiny fruit. Flavor adds some dry roasted coffee presence, very nice. Medium body is just a touch smoother than balanced. Excellent foreign stout. From notes.

Ungstrup (29637) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2009
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a huge dark brown head - seems over carbonated - is it an infection? The aroma has notes of chocolate, malt, roasted malt, and citrus fruits - infection? The flavor is sweet with strong notes of roasted malt, soy sauce, chocolate, and alcohol, leading to a dry roated and chocolate soy sauce finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of scrizz. Pours an opaque black with a thick, light brown head with excellent retention and some lacework. Sweet hard roasted malt in the nose with some vanilla. Medium body, sweet vanilla and licorice - lots of vanilla actually. A little hard roast malt in the finish. 091109

bhensonb (11364) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 7, 2009
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours a very dark brown/black with a 3-finger dark tan head that lasts. Aromas of dark fruits, dark chocolate and darkly toasted malt. Near full bodied with creamy carbonation. Flavor is unusual. Kind of like burnt toast covered with chocolate coated prunes or cherries. Getting some coffee, but that might be cause I just had Mokah. Seems a little oaky. Itís more complicated than I am. Finishes mouthwateringly dark fruity/chocolaty. This one is worth seeking out.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 7, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2009 Poured black with a thin tan head. Aroma is chocolate, prune, and a bit of dried cherry. Flavor is chocolate, roasted coffee, toffee, prune/raisin, and a bitter, slightly woody finish.

Bottle from scrizz. Thanks man!! Pours a very dark brown pour with a small tan head. Chocolate and roasted malt hit the nose followed by some old wood aromas. Flavor is a bit roasted and has lots of chocolate and some light oak nuances.
