Kauge (72) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle from Stockmann in Tallinn (€ 3,55), July 2014. Pours a very deep black with a huge, thick, tan head that retains very well. Nose is the usual sweet, roasty-chocolaty. Surprisingly modest even after having warmed. Taste is caramelly and chocolaty sweet, with a fair deal of bitterness in the end. I just had Thornbridge’s St Petersburg that has the same 7,4% ABV but here the alcohol is way better hidden. Clearly contains oats as its body is fairly light and so damn silky smooth and soft to the tongue. The ABV kicks in after a while when it’s warmer, both in the nose and taste, but more in the latter as a bitter, alcoholic kick. Great!

mR_fr0g (2520) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2014
Keg at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014, yellow session. 02/05/2014. Dark black coloured pour with a thin lasting dark tan head. Aroms is earthy woody, dark choc, english yeast character and some raisin. Flavour is dark roasted barley and some eathy coffee notes. Palate is nice a dry, semi crisp, some chalk. Finish is earthy coffee. Good roasty stout. ~I like this.

jzzbassman (1508) - New Albany, Mississippi, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle courtesy of the CheeseMan. Pours black with a very impressive tan head. All about the roast in this, from the aroma to the flavor. A touch smoky with bitter chocolate.

tomekk1978 (418) - POLAND - JUL 9, 2014
Barwa: czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Piana brązowa, średniej wielkości, drobno pęcherzykowa i ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Aromat: czekolada gorzka, kawa, ciemne owoce, melanoidyny oraz paloność. Alkohol początkowo dobrze ukryty, po ogrzaniu staje się dużo bardziej wyczuwalny. Smak: głównie słodowy, pełny, umiarkowanie słodki. Czekolada, kawa, suszone owoce oraz palona, wytrawna i nieco alkoholowa końcówka. Kolejne piwo z Buxton okazuje się przyzwoitą propozycją, ale na wyżyny się nie wznosi. Jest faktycznie nieco mocniejszym (od przeciętnego) stoutem, ale też odmiennym od imperialnego, który bardziej dominuje smaku. Reasumując nieźle, ale wolę jednak jeszcze cięższe wersje.

mcberko (6034) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle at Buxton Tap House, pours black with a small tan head. Nose brings out cocoa, urinal cakes, and roasted malt. Flavour is thankfully better, with none of the urinal cakes, with notes of roasted malt, cocoa powder, and a touch of coffee. Full-bodied, with a roasty finish. Very good stout, not quite as good as Tsar.

olio (5953) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 18, 2014
33 cl bottle.
Pours pitch black color with a medium sized beige head. A very nice roasty and malty aroma with coffee and cocoa, some caramel also. Very creamy palate with a roasty malty flavor, caramel malts, dry cocoa powder and faint vanilla notes also. Full bodied with a soft carbonation. A very refined and tasty brew indeed.

koshack (39) - POLAND - JUN 15, 2014
Piękna, trwała, brązowa, drobnopęcherzykowa piana. Ładnie oblepia szkło. Piwo ciemne, prawie czarne, zupełnie nieprzejrzyste. W zapachu kawa i palone słody. W smau lekka kwaskowośc od ciemnych słodów. Piwo pełne, treściwe. Alkohol dobrze zamaskowany, chociaż przyjemnie rogrzewa.
