rikstar (1969) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2016
0,33l fles bij bierkoning vandaan? Zwart als de nacht met een zeer zijde licht bruine schuimkraag. Geur is vol van cacao en koffie ook wat geroosterd. Smaak is perfecte balans tussen bitter en zoet, caramel koek met koffie in de nasmaak een bitter dat subtiel opbouwd maar niet overmeesterd. Smaak eindigt in zoute drop. Body is medium. Perfectie in een flesje

Cunningham (6552) - Halden, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2016
Ahhhh lovely evening sipper. Powerful and tasty.
Complete black as usual. Fine beige head. Ok intensity in the aroma. Chocolate and espresso. Medium to full body and a soft carbonation. Mellow nice sweetness with a fine bitterness to balance it. A bit oily texture. Lovely floating chocolate drink this one. Also some espresso and quite mild roast.
[On tap at Førtito Bar & Bowling in Sarpsborg, Norway]

undercurrent25 (1817) - Barnton, Cheshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2016
Pours a black colour with a thick head. Taste is of strong coffee, roast malts and liqourice. A fairly good stout, I would class this as a foreign stout or imperial stout on rate beer

mariuspoenari (1073) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 28, 2016
33cl bottle. Viscous pitch black pour, with a very fine espresso head that is slow to rise to the surface, and that gives way to a nice lacing. Smells of roasted malts, dark chocolate. The taste follows the same notes, with roasted malts, dark chocolate, bitter espresso, a bit of smoke and dark cherries.

Nonshaugen (337) - Fetsund, NORWAY - JAN 22, 2016
33 cl bottle. Jet black, thin cherry-ish brown head. Aroma is fantastic, chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, wow... Full, thick body, nice hop bitterness, nice alcohol warming in the throat. Flavours of dark chocolate, dark caramel, dark coffee, dark everything. Plus some alcohol, but very subdued. A real treat to yourself on an insanely cold winter night like here, right now...

BobyFischer (293) - FRANCE - JAN 18, 2016
Bottle from Craftissimo at home. Rich black pour with dark tan head with frog eye bubbles and some sticky lacing. Aroma is rich coffee, dark dark chocolate, dark fruit. Taste follows - a bit more chocolate and coffee, almost mocha, with big hoppy bitterness throughout. Rich but not too thick palate. Some boozy bitter warmth on the finish, but more roasted malt and bitter coffee. Really good and doesn’t feel any weaker in flavor than higher ABV stouts. Great.

Alengrin (4148) - BELGIUM - JAN 18, 2016
One-off by Buxton, shared by Jan. Sticky, lacing, stable, light beige head over a black beer with deep mahogany brown edges. Strong aroma of bitter fondant chocolate, beef broth, soy sauce, espresso, bayleaf, white pepper, whisky, dried thyme, vanilla beans, pipe tobacco. Soft, restrained and well-placed fig and raisin sweetness in the onset surrounded by beefy umami flavours, thick and oily mouthfeel with soft carbo, very smooth, toasted, nutty and chocolatey maltiness with coffeeish roasted bitterness in the end well balanced with the initial chocolatey sweetishness, peppery hop accent in the finish further accentuating bitterness, some warming alcohol, remaining roasted coffee flavour. Excellent stout reminiscent of the export / foreign stout substyle.

shoulderbroken (3430) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 11, 2016
Bottle. Oaty, coffee, chocolate, bit of caramel. Bit of marker pen too. Good stuff. Light smoke and spice. Nice. Feels boozier than it is. Rich. Nice.

oh6gdx (24430) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 9, 2016
Bottled. Black opaque colour with a mediumsized foamy/creamy beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, some mild alcohol as well as liquorice and some ripe fruitiness. Flavour is ripe fruits, raisins, mild roasted malts, some coffee and sweet maltiness to it. Balanced, and actually a nice slow sipper.
