MiP (13055) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2011
Draught, 6.1%. Roasted aroma, sweet and salty liquorice. Black colour. Good stable brown head. The flavour is milder but fuller than the aroma. Good mild coffee note with only a little bitterness. Very creamy flavour and mouthfeel. Really good and well-balanced.

yngwie (12722) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 15, 2012
Bottle, thx to SecretSanta. A very dark brown beer, finger-thick tan to beige head on top. Roasted malts, chocolate and coffee on the nose, more pronounced than for the Kalamazoo Stout. Roasted, coffee-ish flavor with some chocolate and notes of beef stock. Full-bodied, smooth and dry. Roasted finish. As the Kalamazoo Stout, a bit one-dimensional, but certainly very nice. 110930

Oakes (11874) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 29, 2002
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2008 Black; rich roast in the nose. Slightly fatty body, light fruitiness (a function of the high gravity) - like cherries and grapes; long malty finish. Soft, smooth, slightly creamy and a little bit nutty. Kind of simple.

thewolf (10792) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 15, 2009
Bottle, bought @ Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam.
Pours very deep brown with slight red edges. The head is a thing of beauty. Four fingers thick, extremely creamy, wonderful beige-cappucino colour. Truly a stunning beer to behold. Sweet aroma, lots of dark chocolate, roasted malts, some milk, some coffee and Nutella. Lowish carbonation, rather elegant mouthfeel. Though it is not fat, it maintain a good degree of fill. Flaovur is very well-balanced. Lots of chocolate, cold coffee, roasted malts and a milky edge. Tastes like a good bar of dark chocolate with slight chips of coffee nibs. NICE!

bhensonb (10367) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 11, 2008
Bottle numbered 8150. Dark brown/black color with a tan smear for head. Aroma of dark toasted malt, and something like vanilla. Near medium body with mild, smooth carbonation. Flavor is dark toasted, near burnt, malt with coffee and a touch of vanilla. Then it seems more like anise, and sucking on dark chocolate. The finish is nearly dry, and bitter like baker’s chocolate. Now the body seems fuller. This is strangely variable stuff. Tastes really good.
