RichardGretton (4653) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2007
Bottle. Black beer with a light head. The aroma is very roasted with a hint of chocolate, and the flavour is very bitter with a hint of sweetness and milk but generally dry. Overall a good beer.

Kavu (4175) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 20, 2008
Pours very dark red with a brown foamy head. Aroma is quite typical roasted malts with perhaps a hint of the promised chocolate. The flavor is too bitter and acidic for my liking and there isnt enough chocolate. Decent.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2008
Very dark brown with a beige head. Ashy chocolate aroma. Taste has coffee and cocoa plus a little sourness. Not a great deal of bitterness: in fact the whole thing is a bit low key.

rauchbier (3808) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2007
Bottle, from Netto. Jet Black, excellent lasting fluffy beige head and gentle condition. Pleasant liquorice, burnt coffee, chocolate and buttery notes in the nose, slightly muted in the mouth with a dry tinniness intruding on the chocolate sweetness and coffee bean bitterness, roasted barley and chocolate nesquik in the finish but shorter than I expected from the nose. Pretty good though for only 4% abv.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2008
Bottled at Monks Cafe, Stockholm. Dark brown with a creamy tan-colored foam. Quite rich and smooth aroma of dark chocolate, molasses, oats, honey and cinnamon. Medium-to light-bodied with acidic notes of burnt malts and black chocolate. medium-bitter finish of black chocolate, burnt malts and mild smoke. A bit more chewy mouthfeel, then this would be quite amazing.

Brandman (2848) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 30, 2009
500 ml bottle. Aroma has roasted malt in it, maybe some fruity hoppiness too. The chocolade is not present. Taste is roasted and bitter. Not choko here either. Little bit too carbonated.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 2, 2008
Bottle at Chris_O’s 19th April 2008 tasting. Dark with a line of tan head. Balanced chocolate & malt aroma, complemented by an equally subtle flavour. A bit thin but a nice change from full-on choccy stouts.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 20, 2008
Bottle (in NZ), pours black with a large pillowy brown head. Roasted malt on the nose, with plenty of chocolate and slightly buttery. Lots of chocolate in the malty palate as well, a smooth texture with some smokiness in the finish. I would happily drink a few of these.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 19, 2008
Roasty smoked and light dry lactic notes. And something that smells like a clean plastic milk carton. Black with a wispy tan bubbly. Dry with dark malt, chocolate and tobacco in the flavor.
