TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 6, 2006
Pint pulled at JDW The Railway in Putney (London), a beautifully dark black with a bubbly, but thick, tan head. The aroma is a slight mix of roasted caramal and coffee. Tangy roasted coffee with some chocolate notes and a short finish.

SilkTork (5542) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2005
JDW, Wanstead. Lovely drop. Packed with juicy, fresh, quality blackcurrant fruit. Chocolate. Roasty. Beautiful. It all flows together so well. Great - awesome - mouthfeel. Harmony. Great transition from front to finish. So wonderful it brings tears to the eyes.

oldp1 (2) - Stoke-on-Trent, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2005 does not count
Cask in Stoke-on-Trent. More of a thin porter style than a stout. Smooth to drink aftertaste does not linger. Ok but nothing special

leaparsons (9843) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2005
Bottle conditioned. Black with a large beige head. Aromas are dry roast malts, lots of earthiness. Flavours are very dry roast malts with coffee and hints of bitter dark chocolate. Some licourice, too. Has a very hoppy bitter finish finish with a dry aftertaste. A proper dry stout.

Cask Conditioned, Gravity poured at Banbury Beer Festival í05. Black beer with red hint and malty head. Dry, roasted smokey flavoured stout, coffee husks and roasted chocolate malt. Bitter lasting finish, good stuff.

Ungstrup (34355) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2005
[Bottle conditioned] A black beer with a chocolate brown head. The aroma is sour - weird for a stout, more like a Flemmish sour ale. The flavor is also sour like Flemmish sour ale but with notes of chocolate and caramel.

Dalle (1145) - SkÝrping, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2005
Bottle. Black with bubbly, light brown head. Quite sour, flemish sour ale-like; "itís wine!". Something has gone wrong here for sure, though, oddly, it manages to be somewhat balanced and drinkable... Or was it just me getting tipsy? Deserves a re-rate. And again; Thanks a lot Jens Ungstrup.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - NOV 4, 2004
Light roasted coffee aroma. Sweet chocolate, caramel and fruits in start. Nice coffee/roast finish. Medium smooth. Not bad.
