Keg (One Pint Pub, Helsinki)
Black tea aroma, quite nice. Smooth palate. Keggy carbonation. Very dark, tight beige keggy head. Super bland in the mouth, noitt even sure this is worth 5. Just a dull earthy maltiness. Deeply unsatisfying. So fucking keggy and watery, and the full palate is suffocating in its dullness. The blancmange of beer. How dare a dark beer be so tasteless?

Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours black with orange glints and a creamy light tan head. Aroma of treacle and arguably chocolate. Med body, nearly. Flavor is like aroma, except the malt seems slightly smoky. Finishes lightly, treacly sweet.

Den här gillar jag. Fat på the Terminus folk pub i DenHaag. Riktigt brutal stout men ändå väl balanserad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark in colour, sweeter and creamier than a Guinness. Kind of milky texture. Not bad.

Cybercat (3218) - Georgia, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Comes out of the tap almost Guinness-like: opaque coffee brown with a thick, persistent, fine-bubbled light tan head. Aroma is not strong, but has a good roast malty component and a hint of licorice. Flavor has a robust smoky malt component plus notes of licorice, molasses and subtle caramel. Exceptionally smooth texture has average texture, not a lot of fizz. Still, a decent little Scottish stout.

Slubgob (182) - West Hartford, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Draft into mug. Opaque black, fine cream head. Dull in the mouth, almost bland. Hint of milk and chocolate, but I have to concentrate to get even that. Nice soft mouth feel though. Curious early finishing note of black licorice, otherwise dull finish. Disappointing and boring.

Super dark, smooth, foamy head, and quite delicious. Had it in tap at Minetta Tavern in NYC. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MatteoD. (137) - ITALY - JAN 13, 2013
Bella e corposa schiuma cremosa e persistente color caffelatte, profumo di malto tostato, caffè , al palato corpo medio e retrogusto di whisky, di malto tostato, caffè, cioccolato, dolcezza, e alla fine secco. Non una tipica stout ma neanche una Porter, personalità! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rbrazell (1584) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Nitro draft at Fermentation. Deep brown pour with a creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and light smoke. Flavor of tart dark fruits, smoke, chocolate and roast. Light bodied with a quick smoky finish.

rarbring (1255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2012
Aroma: A dry smell, burned wood, roasted malt. Not very distinct.
Appearance: The beer is black with a red hue, a tan firm head, little lacing and some curtains.
Taste: Good chocolate sweetness, a fruity sweet freshness, slightly smokey.
Palate: Little carbonation, soft and smooth, a fresh feeling with a light dry finish.
Overall: A nice *porter*, not the stoutish dryness.
Note: On-tap at De Klomp. Reviewed 2012-01-07.
