Finwe (427) - Grankulla, - DEC 31, 2012
500ml bottle from Alko. Pours black with a tan head. Roasted aroma of liquorice, coffee and chocolate. The flavour is quite the same. Soft palate. Very good, if not exquisite, stout.

minihame2 (402) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUN 16, 2016
Black body, small, bubbly tan head. Very mild aroma, I only get a bit of malts and a faint coffee aroma in the background. Pretty good flavour, roasty malts, dark chocolate, with slightly bitter hoppiness. Silky smooth moutfeel, low but tingly carbonation but not very rich bodied. Decent stout with lots of roasted flavours which I like.

Fules (477) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 4, 2016
Nagy, tartós hab, koromfekete szín. Kifejezetten fekete csokis illat, bár kicsit erőtlen. Édeskés, fekete csokis ízvilág, enyhe pörkölt malátás alapon, de a háttérben a komló is elővillan egy pillanatra. Utóíze édeskés, fekete csokis. Nagyon finom, de egyetlen százalékkal kevesebb alkohol kellene bele.

Aus der Flasche getrunken. Schwarz wie die Nacht. Mächtiger Malzkörper mit einer leichten Alkoholnote und Nachtrunk nach etwas Lakritze.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

hauxe (309) - Butzbach, GERMANY - FEB 26, 2016
Pours black from the bottle with a thin creamy head. Aroma is lots of roasted malts and coffee. Taste is bitter coffee, chocolate and, more faintly, amaretto. The hops make themselves felt in the long bitter finish. Palate is creamy, the body is lighter than usual for the style. Pleasant.

Black, creamy brown lace. Licorice roast notes, bitter chocolate . Dry medium body. Herbal notes, dry roast chocoate,spice and licorice. Needs some chewiness and somethiing to cut through the dry notes to be moreish.

Too sweet for me for a stout. Put me off immediately with the sickly sugary after taste. Has a pleasant smokey, caramel toffee, chocolate/coffee aroma, however. No head to report in my glass anyway, with very little, and a quickly disappearing lacing. (had an APA in glass before pouring however). Again, too sweet. Shame.
