Bottle. Black beer with a good light brown coloured head. The aroma is lightly roasted with some mellow milkyness. The flavour is heavily roasted and coffee bean bitter. Overall a nice strongly flavoured stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Beer Gonzo shop 30th April 2016 consumed at home in company of Lynn and Barry on Sunday 1st May 2016. Pours black with a light beige head. Nice coffee aroma but interlaced with a good little punch of fresh green hops. More of the same in the mouth, fresh, a little smoke but hops and coffee with chocolate to a lesser extent the dominant features. I love this, not sure why I have not rated before as I must have had it umpteen times. Tastes move like a black session IPA to me, but regardless it’s V.good. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov16 3.9

ERB92 (622) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2016
Aroma of chocolate, coffee, wood, licorice, cocoa and dried fruits. Almost black with a tan head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a average to soft carbonation. Overall a very nice Stout, a tiny bit on the thin side, but for the ABV it is really great.

Bijl (148) - NETHERLANDS - APR 15, 2016
Ongefilterd donkerbruin... Onderin het glas donker amberrood. Gist onderin de fles.... Dus rustig inschenken. Volle foamy cremekleurige schuimkraag...deze blijft heel lang. Hoppig aroma met fruitige tint en geroosterde/gebrande mout en koffietonen en ergens iets fruitigs. Aroma geeft veel hoop op wat goeds. Smaak is veel koffie, behoorlijk heftig. Choco, roasty en in begin zoet... Daarna een volle hopbitter die heel lang nablijft. In de nasmaak blijft ook iets gebrands/assig achter en droog. Medium body ....weinig koolzuur. Best een goede drystout... Zeker niet subtiel.

33cl bottle at home from FirmaBier. Nose is tons of cocoa. Body is pitch black, head is big, creamy, brownish, mostly lasting, excellent lacing. Aroma is cocoa, quinine. Light freshwater sweet, heavy bitter. Finish is forever lasting mostly hoppy also roasty heavy bitter, slightly salty, light watery sidetaste. Medium body, dry texture, average carbonation. Not that easy due to crazy heavy bitterness, very simple, interesting, nice one.

butelka, warka rozlana8/6/15 (czyli miesac po terminie BB). Lekko przeswitujacy braz piwa z ladna, lekko kremowa piana. aromaty takie, jakich mozna sie spodziewac - kawa zbozowa, nieco czekolady (a moze raczej ciasta czekoladowego, brownie czy cus), niemalo palonosci, ciut sliwek i chleba w tle. W ustach powtorka aromatow, slodkawe i lekko kwaskowate, nisko wysycone... bardzo milo pijalne, przyswajalne, szybko znikajace, takie co to po wypiciu czlowiek sie dziwi, ze rozlewaja to w male a nie w duze butelki. Aha, "hint of smoke" to ja nie czuje.

Vighals (2932) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2016
Svart med høyt vedvarende lys brunt skum. Lukter papp, jord, trevirke og salt lakris. Middels fyldig. Smaker kakaopulver, kaffe og salt lakris. Den salte smaken kommer veldig på slutten. Lit vel mye.

Cunningham (6739) - Halden, NORWAY - FEB 29, 2016
Opaque black and subtle red color with a thick beige head that last. Nice intensity in the aroma with some toffee, chocolate and coffee. Medium body and a fine fresh carbonation. Ok balance between sweetness and bitterness. Semi dry texture. Coffee, toffee, mild roast, some smoked notes and some chocolate. Lovely complex ale at only 4,1%.
[Bottle from Gulating in Arendal, Norway]
