mcberko (7458) - 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 (6688) - 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 (268) - Gdańsk, 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.

elbernays (653) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 14, 2014
Bottle at home from redmonds. Pours oily black from the bottle. Big dark mocha head. Reduces to nice thin head. Good lacing. Coffee nose, burnt malts, lactose, liquorice some alcohal. Flavour is liquorice, coffee with bittering finish. Light body which gives a watery mounthfeel but is full flavoured. Lasting drying finish with liquorice aftertaste. Strong cabonation for a stout. Good.
