Countbeer (5151) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 27, 2015
Bottle (33cl): Served in a shaker at roomtemperature: Deep dark blackish brown. Yellow beige head. Aromas of malt roast, some chocolate, light coffee, subtle (sweet) roast and a dark manure tint. Flavour has some very nice and subtle coffee/coffee roast tones, well done. Other hints I pick up are some soft chocolate, malt roast and bitters. Not too difficult but quite tasty for a 4%ABV beer! Aftertaste is a mix of roast, bitters, coffee roast, some cacoa/chocolate, dried leave toast and nutty toast with a subtle dryness. Low carbo, light creamy but more watery mouthfeel and medium and watery bodied.

Nocturne (1082) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2015
Keg at PSBH, Manchester. Dark brown with a thin cap of tan bubbles. Aroma and taste are much the same. Flavours consist of cocoa, coffee beans and a brown sugar-like maltiness. For a relatively low ABV stout it packs in plenty of taste and the body is quite robust.

jookos (3227) - FINLAND - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle. Black, light tan head. Malty, huskey, roasty nose. Some chocolate, just a touch of sweet dark licorice. Nice flavour. Dark roasty, light mouthfeel, roasty ashy good weight on the flavours. Finishes dry, roasty ashy. Flavoursome, good stout. Lots of roast for the abv. Gets a bit thin though, but perfectly fine for a roasty evening snack.

budedou (511) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - FEB 16, 2015
Near black with a beige head. Aromas are roast coffee with blackberries and toffee. Yeasty with earthy notes and oak barrel. Gentle smokiness with burnt toast and some oiliness. Flavours are molasses with dark cherries and earthy roast coffee. Plummy with dark chocolate bitterness and pithy citrus rind. Very solid for itís strength.

Cask at Buxton Brewery Tap House. Black colour with a creamy mocha head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, a bit of smokiness and sourness too. Taste is fruity at first, also roasted malt, coffee and bitter dark chocolate. Really smooth and full flavoured. Dry, roasted finish. Overall a nice dry stout.

yngwie (14935) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 4, 2015
On tap at Kick. Itís a more or less black body, topped by a creamy dark beige head. Nice curtains. Thereís a faint sour touch in the aroma. In a nice way, but I still wonder if itís due to a long lasting keg or not. Roasted malts, coffee and some dark berries too. All a bit weak. Itís full bodied and dry with a pleasant carbonation level. The flavor have roasted malts, coffee and quite a lot of bitterness. Lasting roasted finish where the coffee is more evident than in the aroma and initial flavor. Quite nice this one, although a bit one tracked. 150204
