Lukaduke (1742) - 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 (5862) - 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.

Lilja (1391) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2013
Smak och doft av humle, malt, choklad ,kaffe, karamell, rostade toner med smak av honung och vanilj. Fruktig, krämig, rund och len. Kraftfull trots sin låga alkoholhalt. Avrundas med en tydlig bitterchokladbeska.

RexTalionis (2124) - FINLAND - JAN 25, 2014
Bottle 50 cl. Pours dark brown in color with a tan head. Chocolate, roasted coffee, lots of dark vibes is present on the whole here in aroma. Creamy mouthfeel. Roasted malts, bitter chocolate and coffee notes in taste. Really smooth on the whole. Thick bitter chocolate in aftertaste. Great one.

Bozo_skeleton (391) - Grenoble, FRANCE - MAR 26, 2014
Bien noire avec un collet de grosse bulles qui se dissipe pour laisser place a un fin liseret de fines bulles. Aromes bien marqué de café, cacao, malt grillé. Assez ronde, attaque sur les notes grillées. Final legerement sec et amere, bien long.

ClaudeB04 (69) - Dudelange, LUXEMBOURG - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle found at Auchan St patricks day special. Typical stout colour, nose roasted malt, taste coffee, chocolate malts, a bit watery finish. One of the best stouts I ever tasted.

ectuohy27 (520) - ESTONIA - APR 3, 2014
Rich, complex stout--a tad too much bitterness for perfect enjoyment, but this one has many many layers, it’s got caramel, it’s got a good thick head, it’s got toasted nuts, a bit of ale hops...not as creamy as the standard IRL stout style, but darn appreciable

SeanMacGC (332) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 1, 2009
Bottle, 355 ml. Pours very dark bodied, with none to little head. Very rich aroma of bitter chocolate and treacle. Much the same on the palate, wtih pleasant blend and balance of sweet and sour. A decent ale overall.

Lubiere (9428) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 19, 2011
A deep dark stout with a thin brown head. In aroma, a smooth chocolate with smooth vinous notes, molasses, dark fruits, almost veering on imperial stout territory. In mouth, a earthy and woody chocolate malt with some nice vinous and woody notes, delicate, peaty and very nice. Bottle from MLCB, via trade with Piscator, about 1.5 years ago. And it is still delish! Thanks Kris.
