Editor’s note: Formerly known as "Black Rooster No Name Stout".

Danish: Black Roosters Stout er mørk, fyldig og forførende cremet, på en måde der leder tankerne hen på, om dette kunne udgøre det for dagens hovedmåltid. Smagen er domineret af ristede noter, med et tydeligt præg af chokolade, kaffe og lidt lakrids, som stammer fra de forskellige ristede malte vi har anvendt. Bitterheden er moderat og humlearomaen er lav.

TorbenJensen (1464) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2015
It is a black and relatively thick ale with renewable nougat colored foam. The taste is lovely caramelized with a clear sense of both coffee and dark bitter chocolate. Creamy and rich mouthfeel. It can then definitely be recommended.

Pours black with a creamy, tan head. Smooth aroma of toffee, licorice and chocolate. Smooth and round in the mouth. Flavour is dry and roasted with notes of toffee, salty licorice and chocolate leading to a somewhat hoppy finish. Really pleasant and drinkable.

Rune (11372) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 20, 2012
200ml as Black Rooster Stout 6.5% abv., from tap at Schouskjelleren Mikrobryggeri. Nice lacing rings to the glass, tiny tan-coloured head. Pitch black body, more or less. Malty sweet aroma with a touch of chocolate. Earthy sweet malts joined liquorice in flavour and offset by grassy hops. Finish off with a nice roasted bitter twist. Ok expression of the style (Oslo, 16.03.2012).

Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2012
(Draught) Pours black with a brown head. The aroma holds hard roast and green hops up front with notes of asphalt, liquorice, fruity cocoa, dark syrup, dark caramel, some coffee, resin, grapefruit, fresh herbs and soft fruits. Quite American nose. The flavour light to medium sweet, near medium bitter and light acidic with a balanced hop and roast profile. The mouthfeel round and light sticky with a light and soft carbonation. Earthy, woodsy and light citric hops alongside liquorice, menthol, asphalt and coffee on the finish. Medium bodied.

Mouthfeel is creamy. Finish is sweet liquorice.
