shoestring (271) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - OCT 17, 2014
Black, black deep clour. Fluffy small head. Coffe, roated barley and oats are all in there. Bitterness to the fore also - maybe slightly too much at times for me?

Vighals (1253) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - OCT 14, 2014
Svart med høyt lys brunt skum som legger seg for fort. Lukter kaffe og melkesjokolade. Tynn med lett bitter og søt smak. Medium kullsyre.

TyggaBrown (406) - NORWAY - SEP 22, 2014
Not much of a tasty stout. No aftertaste at all, and thin and flat body. Some nice hints of coffee and "stout", but besides the fact that it’s easy drinkable, this wasn’t much.

mikkopen (856) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUL 28, 2014
500 ml bottle. Dark reddish brown colour, tan head. Sweetish roasted malty aroma with chocolate and some fruity and sour notes. Roasted malt, coffee notes and sweet chocolate in the flavour. Tasty.

Maxbier (331) - Maryland, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Dark brown pour tan head. Aroma of roasted malts and cocoa. Flavor is malty, coffee and dark chocolate. Smokey in the finish, hint of tobacco flavor too.

jercraigs (7934) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2014
2014-07-03. Black body with a modest tan head. 3+ Aroma is relatively modest but fairly roasty. Flavour is similar, dry roast throughout. Smooth average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. Moderately bitter, dry roasty finish is a bit more roasty than my preference. Bottle at Cairngorm brewery, Aviemore

doradobotella (114) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2014
Apariencia: Color negro intenso con una capa de espuma cremosa, abundante y duradera. Aroma: Sutil y agradable a malta tostada y chocolate con toques a mocca o incluso ahumados. Sabor: Muy bien compensado que recuerda al café y termina con un amargor ligeramente seco.

ReV2 (147) - Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2014
Poured reddish black when held to the light. Thin tan head, chocolatey aroma. Slightly thin and oily mouthfeel, toast & nuts, detectable hops on the finish (traditional?), nice & moreish.
