Palme (3605) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2014
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014. This is a deep brown looking one with a small sidesticking and islandy brown head. Cocoa dark nose here. Some oboy or nesquick powder with hints of both vanilla and chocolate. Not a super extreme hit-you-in-the-face nose but it’s most definitely present and nice. Some grains also. It has a way to alcohol-raw taste for my taste buds, and it still feels a bit thin in the mouth. Dry roasted malts, some more dry cocoa powder. No trace of the faint oboy sweetness in the aroma. Ends really mouthdrying this. Decent stuff. 02.05.2014

teorn88 (3551) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2014
33cl bottle from Mother Kelly’s, London. It pours a deep dark brown color with a small mocha head. Aroma is intensely roasty, with notes of dark chocolate, licorice, espresso, wood. As it warms up, a boiled vegetable notes pervades the aroma. Taste is rich bold and quite sweet with notes of dark chocolate, coffe beans, burnt sugar, roasted wood and hits of black berries. Finishes mild tart and mild bitter with notes of roasted grains an black currants. Medium to full body with good carbonation. Overall, a great perusal stout considering the ABV. It looses a point on that strange vegetable note in the aroma though.

hohops (463) - Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2014
Appearance is sludge black, with a small tan head which fades quickly. Aroma- lots of chocolate. Fudge cake, leathery notes, vanilla, lots of dark malts, coffee hints, bit of liquorice, it’s mostly about the chocolate though. Smells lovely. Taste- lots of bitter chocolate, coffee, very slick and oily mouthfeel, surprisingly thin in the body, roast malts, sticky and dark chocolate finish. Very nice, rich stout.

Senka (845) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 15, 2014
33cl bottle. BBE 03/10/14. Enjoyed on 15.10.2014. Pours pitch black with ash-brown head. Aroma of ash, roasted malts, black pepper and chocolate. A true stout sensation. Everything is present here what you would expect from stout - iron, caramel, chocolate, cloves and some ginger. Smoke and oak bark in the aftertaste. Not as thick as you would expect. Slightly oily and slick - goes very smoothly down the throat. Soft carbonation, that is not sufficient to keep the head on for longer than 10 minutes (this is not a bad thing at all). Long and smokey finish. Alcohol is not noticeable at all. I would not hesitate to sample that. Says that it is good for aging also.
