Number one in a series of five stouts produced for the fall and winter seasons. This beer is full bodied with hints of chocolate, roasted barley, coffee flavors and a nice creamy head.

Alengrin (4529) - BELGIUM - OCT 17, 2015
Bottle from Malt Attacks, reading 7% ABV instead of 8% but I assume this is still the same beer. Dense and creamy, regularly shaped, medium thick, deep tan head over a jet black beer. Pleasant aroma of black bitter chocolate, coffee with cream, ’haemoglobin’ iron, black tea, dry liquorice, cloves, toasted brown bread, dried juniper berries, some smoked meat, nettles, espresso beans, pipe tobacco ashes, tar. Creamy onset with sharply but ’finely’ stinging carbonation, some candied fruit sweetness but only very subtly so, surrounded by salty (salmiak), sourish (brambleberry) and umami (black olive) accents; full, creamy and oily body consisting of a thick layer of nutty and roasted grains with a certain kind of deep, dull grainy sourishness to it (I guess this is the oats), becoming more and more roasted bitter in the end with a coffeeish aromatic quality to it but only mildly so, eventually a bit charcoal-like as well; finishes in a lot of roasted bitterness along with peppery hops which blend in nicely, a faint hint of warming alcohol but nothing too obvious, and a remaining sensation of thick, bittersweet malts. I like stout in all its substyles and these guys are clearly good at it: though not too outspoken in terms of character and personality, this one is more than decent, powerful roasted bitterness truly shines here, mouthfeel and looks are exactly what you’d expect from a 7% stout and there are no flaws whatsoever. It would be unfair to compare this with their imperial stout (the popular Plead the 5th), but in its particular stout substyle, this shows the same technical perfection.

Idiosynkrasie (6407) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 29, 2015
355ml bottle. Jet black colour with small to average, thick, creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, beige to tan head. Roasty dark malty aroma with a nuttily touch, notes of milk chocolate, chocolate cookies, some dark chocolate, a touch of liquorice. Taste is slightly roasty dark malty, slightly sweet, hints of treacle, dark chocolate, a touch of liquorice, cautious hints of blueberry jam; oily texture. Perfectly hidden alcohol, dangerously drinkable.

다크호스 브루잉 - 원 오트밀 스타우트 8% ABV 기분 좋게 솟는 어두운 폼, 극단적으로 달거나 비터한것없이 자연스러운 가을/겨울의 시즈널 오트밀 스타우트. 로스팅 된 맥아에서 오는 초콜릿, 가벼운 커피의맛 8도 치곤 무겁지 않은 맥주. 엠블럼만 세련되게 바꾼다면 평가가 한층 올라가지 않을까 싶다. https://twitter.com/MaekJuBot

Dark brown beer, small tan head. Nose is smooth roastiness, coffee and milk chocolate. Flavor has a lot more coffee and roast, sweetish and bitter, chocolate and coffee. Long roasty and bitter finish. Simple, but a gorgeous finish. Light, but flavorful.

heman (636) - Tychy, POLAND - AUG 18, 2015
Nieprzejrzyście czarne, z piękną brązową pianą. Aromat to gorzka czekolada, mocno palona kawa, w tle delikatny sos sojowy i lekka kwaśność. W smaku mocno wytrawne. Mocno palone, dużo gorzkiej, deserowej czekolady. Finisz to średnia goryczka, pozostawiająca posmak ziaren czekolady. Piwo ok, ale nie jako sweet stout.

martin00sr (2750) - Haderslev, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2015
Black with thick tan head. Roasted aroma, notes of coffee and dark chocolate. Similar flavour. Starts off sweetish and then the long lasting bitterness takes over. Light mouthfeel but still quite flavourful.

TET (2633) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2015
A black beer with an almost medium and light brown head. Aroma has dry roastiness, balancing sweet chocolate, some coffee. Great aroma. Taste has roasted coffee and nice chocolate, dry end. Medium+ bodied, smooth. Quite simple beer but that’s not bothering as the basic elements are balanced. The great beer.
