kingaugusta (210) - Georgia, USA - JUL 4, 2016
Pours black with a fine tan head. Nose is strong coffee and chocolate and on the sweeter side for a stout. Flavor is initially a burst of dark chocolate and carbonation with some pepper and roasty flavor sweeping in on the back. Finish is warm and sticky. Quite good.

TorbenJensen (1444) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2016
This stout has a wonderful aroma of roasted malt and a little smoke, which together with light coffee tones gives the impression of a strong and heavy stout. The label promises also 9% alcohol, so it’s not a stout for novices! Perfect balanced with coffee, chocolate, roasted malt and a moderate amount of chili that barely sticks to the tongue and quickly dampened by little smoked malt. Palate is great and warm and it is thick, almost oily in its texture. The alcohol does not taste so strongly through, although it is not saved away in this stout. However, the burnt malt character and especially the dose of chocolate malt that tastes most through. Chili is present but only to abstract some of the otherwise very heavy malt this stout has. I could not help it, but read the label and must unfortunately note that the added vanilla and cinnamon not find their way to my mouth. It can not deny the adding, but malt, chili and the moderate, bitter / aroma hops put these things out of the picture for me. Otherwise a brilliant stout.

KoNrRiI (1157) - Århus, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2016

0.355 bottle.
Pours black with a small, brownish head which disappears almost instantly. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, a tad of herbs, some peanuts, and lactose. Taste is clearly malty, once again chocolate takes the prime with coffee relatively far behind, still noticeable though, so is lactose and molasses. A medium body, a very creamy texture, and a flat carbonation. Finish is long, once again chocolaty, it reinforces the herbal and molasses flavors. Overall a decent beer, it could be more chocolaty considering its label; moreover, the herbal nuances do not go well with the rest.

Bottle. Thanks for sharing, Shag. Perfectly black colored body with a barely perceptible head. Milk chocolate nose with some toast and peanuts. Flavors of milk chocolate are spices spices with cinnamon and some pepper heat. I also get some bits of plum. Warming and a little boozy. Nice.
