22oz. Bottle: Aroma of malts, roasting, sweet cream, chocolate, and a bit of floral hops. Poured dark dark brown in color with a large, creamy, foamy, thick, brown head that lasted throughout. Opaque. No lacing. Flavor is light to medium sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of roasted malts, chocolate, oatmeal, cream, and a hint of coconut. Medium to full body. Thinish, tingky texture turns chalky. Average carbonation. Dry, roasted malt and chocolate finish.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - AUG 26, 2008
Sweet as an oatmeal stout would be, and quite creamy. Indeterminate roastiness - not coffee, more like being out in the forest at a very subdued campfire. The head is quite large and lasting. The body is a tad watery, surprisingly. Aroma is milky sweet, grainy, and very natural.

vyvvy (3949) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 23, 2008
Pours very dark with a dense tan head. The aroma has roasty malt, white chocolate, woody / oakiness and some light coffee. As it warms the chocolate turns darker and more bitter. Medium thin body that’s crisp and smooth with lots of soft carbonation. The flavor begins with charred chocolate malt, sweet white chocolate, some spice and a bit of a twang. The finish has more twang and tartness that works well for the style and compliments the char. Nice foreign stout.

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - AUG 21, 2008
This poured black in color with a thick brown head. Aromas were of chocolate, coffee grounds and a hoppy roasted malt element. In the mouth it was medium-bodied with a soft midpalate and a dry/bitterness on the finish that came off a bit harsh.

TURDFERGUSON (3948) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 21, 2008
Bottle from my secret santa (jmikolich). Thanks! Pours black with a large tan head. Nose is slightly salty, char, cocoa, coffee, a bit of oats. Flavor is bakers chocolate, light hops, more roast. Finish was slightly metallic. Pretty good stout.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 21, 2008
As JCB and emacgee noted, we opened this bad boy after drinking Stout Trooper, so the shift in tastes wasn’t necessarily beneficial to my enjoyment of this beer. More mealy than meaty, with grain/oatmeal notes coming out. Somehat creamy. Solid but not amazing. Thanks, Turdferguson, for sharing.

TheEpeeist (3318) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2008
22 oz bottle. Dark brown with a latte head. Nose is cocoa powder, whole wheat dough and sour coffee. Almost medium body with fizzy carb. Taste is dusty bittersweet chocolate that fades into dark roast. Dry, bitter-sour finish. Not my favorite style but this is well done.

emacgee (4004) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - AUG 19, 2008
Bottle shared by turd. Pours a dark black with a tan head. The nose was sweet, grainy, smelled some light catfood (?), a little roast. The flavor was smokey, grainy, a bit subdued. Not very upfront but I’ve found that to be the case with most of the foreign stouts I’ve had. As Jason mentioned coming right after the Trooper may have been no good.

Bottle shared by Turdferguson - thanks, Sam! Thick black pour, beige head. Slightly too thin, although perhaps to style. It also had a tough time following the stout trooper, but in general I found this to be a competent drink, with a nice smoky malt finish.
