Oakes (11770) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 2, 2009
Somewhat dull and flat. Very dark brown colour. Thereís sort of a burnt toffee note to this, but also some inappropriate phenols. Itís extra roasty and astringent with a hint of soy sauce. Itís big, but has little going for it. No real complexity, and the flavours and aromas do not correspond with any foreign stout Iíve ever had.

bu11zeye (11760) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUN 10, 2009
(22oz bottle) Pours a brown body with a medium beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, nuts, toffee, and cocoa. Flavor of roasted malt, chocolate, toasted oats and light coffee.

argo0 (11181) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 24, 2004
(RBSG04) Black body topped by brown head. Aroma is sweet, chocolate, cherry, some herby. Taste is sweet, chocolate cherry, herbal, some anise. Body has carbonation-induced lightness on the tongue. I donít like how the flavors coalesce.

Tmoney99 (10073) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2005
Tasted at MRAF in Columbus. Poured a dark brown with small off-white head. Aroma was grassy with roasted tone. Flavor was more complex with coffee and roasted malt but kept the grassy earthy finish. Interesting stout.

bierkoning (9819) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 27, 2008
Bottle from Secret summer santa. Almost black and opague. Pours a huge head. Roast, coffee and dark chocolate in the aroma and flavor. Just a bit creamy mouthfeel. Cappuccino and ash in the aftertaste. Medium to full bodied, well balanced beer.

daknole (8537) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Bottle. Black pour with a small tan head. Aroma is roasty as hell with some smoke, chocolate and an odd chemical note. Flavor is very thin, watery and way over roasted. This beer fails to come together. Overrated by far.

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 2, 2006
UPDATED: APR 27, 2007 Bottle... DLD06... Rating #1500... Pitch black ale with a fizzy, brown head. The nutty, roasty aroma is a cyclone of chocolate, hazelnut and smoke. Malty-rich flavor. Lightly sweet and silky smooth. Medium-bodied with medium carbonation. Finishes smoky and dry.

hopdog (8521) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2006
22oz bottle acquired in trade with OhioDad (thanks!). Poured a dark black color with a huge sized light brown head. Aromas of smoke, light dark fruits, light chocolate, and roast. Tastes of smoke, roast, and some caramel. Lively and fizzy body agreeing with the initial pour that this one is way too over carbonated.

3fourths (7797) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 15, 2004
RBSG 2004. Black appearance. Black licorice nose, smoked malts, dark brown head on this one. Sharp nose... smoky chocolate malts in the nose, similar malts int he flavor and a small alcohol bite in the finish. Very good stuff.
