hohops (607) - 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 (964) - 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.

77ships (6191) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 11, 2014
33 cl. bottle sampled @ Bierfestival Mechelen 2014. Oily black, little mocha bubbles. Nose is thick liquorish, not very outspoken, syrupy fudge, chocolate. Taste is not very outspoken either, roast, liquorish, syrup, chocolate, coffee, light herbal, touch varnish. Thick syrupy body. Okay but not very outspoken, decent. I mean that, it is decent on its own but pales in comparison to the rest within the style.
