TBone (12548) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 4, 2009
Bottled (PBF). Opaque black color, small beige head. Nose has kind of medicinaly toastyness, light apples and light coffee. Tastes a bit like baltic porter, not much milk stout. Toasted malts, some coffee, light sweet lactose notes. Feels less than 9 %. Ok, but not as good as average 3.72 here indicates.

oh6gdx (20334) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 4, 2009
Bottled. Very dark amber colour, small brown foamy head. Aroma is roasted malts, some cream, mild spices, burnt wet wood as well as soem coffee. Flavour is roasted malts, a bit creamy, some chocolate burnt wet wood and alcohol. Mild dark dry fruityness. Pleasant, but a bit too burning.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 16, 2009
Bottle- Deep dark black pour with a foamy and frothy mocha cap. Leaves nise spotty lace. Nose is quite lactic, milk chocolate, some roasty components, coffee beans, and fresh hops. Tastes of coffee, milk chocolate, lactic, roasty malts with some young hops. Has quite an odd metallic feel and flavour towards the end, but it doesn’t come off as unpleasant. Creamy with good drinkability.

SFLpunk (134) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 15, 2009
500mL brown glass pry-top. No date. Bought at Super Marché Rahman in Montreal. Appearance: Poured into an Imperial pint. 1 inch frothy tan head atop a solidly opaque black body. Nose: Café au lait, fresh cream, whisper of white smoke, coffee syrup, dark leaf tobacco. Smells like medium roast coffee with cream. Palate: Bright and crisp with some light hops and some acid, which quickly switches to being creamy. Coffee and mocha flavors dominate, and there’s some oxidized notes here too. Not sure if that’s on purpose. The finish is long and rich and creamy, all mocha. Notes: A seriously tasty brew for the coffee and/or mocha enthusiast. Would love to see this on nitro. Wish they dated the bottles, dammit! What’s with brewers these days??

robinvboyer (3113) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 9, 2009
very dark pour with a thick mocha head. Aroma of sweet malt, fruity alcohol, and muddled hops. Flavor is roasty, and bitter with a sweet hoppy finish. The alcohol disapears in the finish.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 8, 2009
.5 liter bottle. Pours a ligther than black- deep woody brown with a thin lasting off white head. Aroma is sugary sweet with lactose, almost becoming too artificial- nutty, light roast and some ok chocolate. Flavor is a bit too sweet especially after getting through half the bottle- toffee, a bit of maple syrup, coffee hints, roast, and nutty dry chocolate. Finish is a bit slick and too sweet. Meh.

presario (4631) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 7, 2009
Bottle. Black beer with a thick brown head. Kind of a quiet aroma. Mouthfull of flavour gets bigger as it moves back. Thick rich body. Mich chocolate and hop bitterness. Dark, sweet, sour edge somewhat metallic. A little bitter.

Diogène (1066) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 10, 2009
Bière d’un noire opaque surmontée d’une mousse capuccino crèmeuse. Arômes de malt grillé, de fumé, de boisé et de sucre. Légèrement crémeux en bouche avec des saveurs de malt torréifié, de chocolat et de sucre avec une finale légèrement amère.

daknole (9115) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 10, 2009
Damn this was a fun beer to drink. black pour with a huge tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roast, caramel and a hint of prunes or raisins. Flavor is really nice. Milk chocolate, roast, coffee, and a slight lactic tartness which ends up leaving the beer on a prune finish.

Fred82 (2115) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2009
500ml bottle from Grand Duc, Gorgeous look. Poured black with big brown fluffy and creamy head. Aroma is really sweet, roasted coffee, dark chocolate. Taste is roasted malt, some bitterness on the finish but seemed rounded up by something (milk probably). Low carbonation. Awesome balance but could be a bit more complex. Quite drinkable. Gets a bit more bitter as it warms up but still quite balanced. Rating #107
