Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2011
Bottle @ Bull & Castle. Black and beautiful with yummy head. Dark malt dough and dark sugar, raisin and caramel. Soft and easy mouthfeel. Dry and smoky. Not roasty, not sweet. Banana-coffee nuances and a pleasant touch of acidity in the dry finish.

50cl bottle @ Bull and Castle, Dublin. Thanks Dave. Brune foncée, mousse moka. Arôme ŕ une énorme dose de malt grillé et caramel avec ce que je pense ętre un côté lactique aigre mélangé avec du butterscotch. En bouche, une trčs bonne expérience pour une stout qui je trouve se distance de pas mal d’autres qui en Irlande tendent ŕ trop se ressembler. Superbes notes de malt grillé, caramel donnant sur le café et butterscotch suivit d’une fine couche d’amertume houblonnée avec comme au nez, une légčre note aigre / lactique dont je questionne tjrs l’origine, peut ętre la levure?

It’s been some years since I’ve had this beer and it had improved dramatically during that time. Sweet chocolate aroma. Woody flavour, sweet, chocolate, vanilla. Gentle carbonation and soft palate. Pretty tasty.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2012 Ebony silky pour with a tan cap and lacing. Aromas of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, peat and faint hint of vanilla. Initially sweet turning to bitter. Full bodied with good carbonation. Sweet from the malt, chocolate and vanilla, bitter from the coffee. Simples! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lukaduke (2194) - Portland, Maine, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Pours a deep burnt umber with a big sticky eggshell foam... the nose is really inviting with nice chocolate brownie, mexican spice and lots of roasty goodness. The palate is smooth and creamy with enough bubbles to bring out the flavors... rich chocolate, soft spice, green coffee beans... nice balance witha touch of bitterness cutting through the finish. Tasty.

Svesse (6158) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 23, 2013
(Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm) Dark brown colour, almost black, with brief beige head. Roasted, malty nose with coffee, dark chocolate and black rye bread. Malty, roasted taste with notes of dark chocolate, coffee, a touch of liquorice, black rye bread and a generous cocoa bitterness in the finish. Medium body, fairly dry. Solid and well made stout. Very nice.
