Sjohnh (514) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2014
Good fulsome stout. Deep black with lasting beige head. Roasted malt aroma. Some fruit - raspberry? - pokes through the bitter dark chocolate and treacle taste. Full bodied - more creamy than oily. Another good one from Buxton.

skortila (4867) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2014
On tap@Wildeman. 25cl sample. The aroma has roast, licorice, chocolate/moccha, some coffee. Black coloured beer with a thin brown head. The taste is sweet, light bitter, has licorice, chocolate, some roast. Mouthfeel is wonderful smooth. Goes down pretty easy for 7.4% with a relative full body. Really nice. Don’t tell me this a one-off. It’s so awesome, deserves more batches. Much more. So minus points for that. When another batch is released I will update the score.

caesar (5881) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2014
Tap @ In de Wildeman, medium sample, served in a tulip glass. Dark brown color, short fluorescent brown head. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, mocha, licorice, roasted malts. Like a big RIS, but this one is only 7.4%. Taste is medium sweet, slight bitterness, bit dry. Licorice goes up in time, whereas the mocha fades away a bit unfortunately. But a lovely big stout this is.

PotjeBier (2105) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2014
Taster size glass from tap @ In De Wildeman. Pitch black color. Dense beige head. Aroma’s: chocolate, roasted malts, a bit vanilla & fruit. Retronasal the roast is much more pronounced and the chocolate all but disappears. Flavor is heavily roasted, light bitter, light sourish (from the roast), light sweet. Medium bodied. Finish is hard roasted malts, long lasting, burnt wood, charcoal, ash, moderate bitterness. Nice, but perhaps a bit too much roast/burn.
