thb (676) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 15, 2012
Basically black, not much head from my pour. Dry, bitter stout, with very dark chocolate, burnt toast. Quite harshly bitter without corresponding richness. Still fairly drinkable and a not unpleasant experience.

motelpogo (6474) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 21, 2012
On tap at Popeyes in Tokyo. Dark purple to black with a modest head; really strangely watery texture, next to no carbonation; light but unconvincing peat and cocoa powder. Dull finish

GothGargoyle (1159) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 23, 2012
Cola colour with a small beige head. Aroma is caramel, brown sugar, pecan, hint of liquorice. A little thin on the palate with a nutty and slightly bitter finish. Taste is brazil nuts, caramel, burnt toast.

HenryXXX (201) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 23, 2012
Pours a black with a beige head that fades quickly. The nose has bitter chocolate, and a fig and anis bread. The pallet is very light and smooth. The Flavors are roasted malts, copper penny/minerally and finishes very light with a bit of hoppy lingering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maekchu (2082) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUN 29, 2012
Bottle (gift from Neko-chan). Smooth chocolate roastiness with some coffee notes. Dark brown with a 1-cm light beige head. Creamy mild chocolate flavor. Pretty consistent from initial to finish, without much development in flavors. Thin-medium body. Had this years ago, and it wasn’t nearly this good. A very pleasant mild stout.

shoulderbroken (1990) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 16, 2012
Keg at the Harajuku taproom. Dark brown with small golden head. Aroma is soy sauce, roasty, bit of coffee, touch of smoke (and bacon). Taste is slightly creamy but mostly roasty bitterness. More of the savoury meat and soy sauce thing. Long lasting roasty finish. Bit of sweet malt hidden in there too. Nice and sessionable.

minihame2 (203) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 16, 2012
Bottle. Completely black with a small tan head. Nice aroma with malts and some coffee. Mouthfeel is soft with minimal carbonation. Taste begins like your usual stout and then ends up with nice coffee/espresso finish. Very drinkable stout.

EdKing (1848) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2012
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours black with brown edges and a nice foamy almost creamy off white head. Nose is roasted malt, but also a bit of zingy citrous hops. Taste is dominated by the roasted malt, with coffee and touch of chocolate, but theres a really nice citrous hop undercurrent which gives this a broader depth. Very nice stout.

pintbypint (2593) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 16, 2011
360ml brown bottle. Pours deep dark brown with mahogany highlights. Great head - quite thick, creamy, longlasting, beige in colour. Nose has dark chocolate and a decent level of roasted malt. Very light hop note. Roasty malt in the mouth, some coffee and chocolate. Decent roasted malt bitterness and light hops in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, fine carbonation. Dry stouts do not often excite me, but this is quite enjoyable, would have no problem sessioning this.

reebtogi (4151) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 8, 2011
330ml bottle pours almost black in color with a plentiful light brown head with good retention leaving a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted malts and chocolate. Taste is roasted malty bitterness balanced with the malty sweetness and some hoppy bitter notes in the finish. Light to medium body and adequate carbonation. Although a little thin in the body, I really enjoyed the balance of flavors that this stout offered. Well done!!!
