thellgren (715) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 24, 2016
0.33 l bottle @ 8% ABV from Viking XPress ferryboat (Helsinki-Tallinn) shop. Aroma is dark chocolate. Appearance is dark ruby (almost black) with a tan head. Taste is machine oil, then dark roast coffee and chocolate. Dry taste is fighting with malts. Not too bitter which is not the point anyway in this style.

(Bottle, 0.33 l - ABV 8.0 % - bottled on 27/1/2015 - BB 27/1/2017, from Viking Gabriella, 20160527) The beer poured black. Its head was small and lightly brown.

Aftertaste was burnt and bitter. A tasty burnt brew.

wrlangin (122) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 7, 2016
330 ml bottle from Hawthorne Cellars. Label indicates bottling on 27/1/2015 and 8.0% ABV. Pours black with medium tan head. Aroma of toasted malt. Flavours of chocolate and coffee balance the toasted malt well. Taste is crisp for a stout. Recommended. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mecafilo (189) - Perugia, ITALY - MAR 22, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2016 Bottle @ home. Pours with a dark brown colour, medium frothy tan head. Aroma is rich in dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla and some licorice; very strong roasty notes; quite a strong aroma, and elegant. Taste is medium sweet, medium bitter, quite sour; not as elegant as the aroma, but right on the export stout kind of idea. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, pleasant soury finish.

ALLOVATE (2843) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 17, 2016
At cellar temperature and into a snifter. Deepest cola in the shallows otherwise itís black. Head a mere tannish ring on the meniscus. I must have a cold because I struggled to pick up any aroma apart from a faint hint of burnt toast and sawdust. On the palate it is a little rough and raw. Bitter and sharp peppery hops actually dominate. Otherwise it yields up twiggy bark, scorched wood and ash, peanut husks and stinging nettles. Body is on the lean side. Quite sprightly with a powdery feel to the finish. Just did not like it, so thatís a subjective thing. Nothing melded. Hmmmph! (33cL, BB 27/01/16, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

mkel07 (4940) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 15, 2016
Bottle from Beer Cartel 150316. This is a big roasty stout that fills the mouth with flavour. Burnt bitter finish leaves a long lingering aftertaste. Looks good in the glass and the only thing missing is the fire to sit around.

Davros (2663) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 15, 2016
Pours black with a large tan head. Nose shows liquorice, roasted malt, soft coffee and a little bready malt. Flavours include more liquorice and roast, treacle, some caramel/toffee and a fair whack of bitterness in the finish.

TET (2494) - Kaarina, FINLAND - MAR 4, 2016
A black beer, a head is quite small and beige. Aroma has roastiness, coffee, richness of sour bread, hint of riped fruitness. Taste is rich, roastiness, black coffee. Some bitterness thatís nicely balancing the sweetness. Medium+ bodied, low carbonation. Roasted, slightly harsh beer, same notes that are in the Sinebrychoff Porter. Tasteful beer.
