StoutHead (943) - DENMARK - DEC 19, 2015
Tap. Pours black with a small off-white head. No aroma to speak of. Taste is of roasted malts, hops, a bit of dark fruits and a bit of chocolate. Toasty and bitter finish. By no means bad but just plain boring and generic. The only real positive thing is the bitterness which elevates it to slightly more drinkable than a Guinness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rand (1490) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 19, 2015
Bottle 330 ml from Amstein - St-Légier (CH). Black beer with an average tan head. Roasted aromas of black chocolate, moccha, hint of vanilla. The taste is burnt, very perfumed of chocolate-moccha, a bit black fruits, touch of vanilla and spiced impression. Bitterness of roast braided by hops. An in every respect remarkable Stout.

Brown/black color. Average carbonation. Enticing roasted aromas. Some vanilla with a touch of fruitiness. Dry and quite bitter, almost too much. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Flavors of vanilla, chocolate, burned malts. Herbal hoppy finish. Delicious.

0,5 l bottle. A little weak aroma, but its roasted barley, chockolate, coffe and vanilla. The taste is dominated by the same. Nice body and perfect bitterness. A nice stout. In Norway this is one of the cheapest 0,5 l bottles at Vinmonopolet (NOK 47) and its absolute worth it!

Bottle 0.5L. Dark brown body with an average, creamy, tan head, mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate malty (toasted, light caramel) aroma with notes of chocolate, coffee and licorice.

Nonshaugen (418) - Fetsund, NORWAY - NOV 4, 2015
50 cl bottle. Pours a really dark brown to blackish beer in the glass, thin beige to light brown head. Aroma is that familiar toffee, caramel, coffee roasted barley kind of aromas, as one would expect from a stout. Flavours are rich and complex. Lively carbonation up front, toasty toffee in the middle, and dry coffee bitterness in the aftertaste, lasting for a long time. Vanilla? Label says so, I can’t pick up any of that.

ClubGonzo (5399) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 3, 2015
Bottle. Pours a deep brown, near-black body with a large creamy light beige head. Nose is brown bread, chocolate, coffee, sawdust and hints of caramel, biscuits and nougat. Taste is chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel and hints of brown bread, nuts and biscuits. Medium body with a dry, chalky finish and a medium carbonation level. Pretty decent stout; kinda like a big brother to the classic dry stout. Likable.
