pepperford (115) - robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - NOV 20, 2008
almost black in color, with no head. aromas of chocolate, vanilla, and burnt coffee/espresso. very chocolate and a touch of alcohol hottness. good stout, but thought the oatmeal would give it a rounder mouthfeel.

KoNrRiI (1216) - Århus, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2016

0.33 bottle.
Black color with a small, brownish head of good retention. A rich aroma of dark malts, dark chocolate, forest fruits, wood, some caramel, and a bit of oats. Taste is obviously malty, sweet, chocolaty, woody - not as rich as the aroma but still good. A full body, a thick texture, and an almost flat carbonation. Finish is medium long and less sweet, some molasses appears whereas most of the initial complexity vanishes. Overall the beer is good but it seems to diminish as one progresses with the tasting.

Rask0lnikov (743) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 10, 2016
On tap at RCBW 2016. Dark brown, almost black colour. Small, beige head. Lots of chocolate, creamy notes, slight sweetness, very slight hints of vanilla in the aroma. Chocolaty, creamy beginning. Rather bitter in the middle. Bit smoke, burnt caramel in the end. Creamy texture. Rather medium bodied, quite interesting beer. Maybe even too less body.

Marduk (6324) - Reval, ESTONIA - SEP 6, 2016
Tap @RCBF 2016. Pitch black color. Small size, brown head, stays. Dark chocolate, sweet, fruity, cocoa beans and malty in aroma. Malty, dark chocolate, some hops, sweet, caramel and roast in taste. Hopping is very nice. Long lasting roast and dark chocolate in aftertaste. Very easy to drink. Alcohol is hidden. Very solid brew.

Vells (1607) - Rîga, Latvija, LATVIA - AUG 25, 2016
Superb full bodied brew for such a low ABV. Usually I like intense hard hitters, but this one is soooo smooth, coffee, cocoa, vanilla, some pine hop kick. MOderate to light sweetness with moderate bitterness Bomb

Sweet and rich aroma. Bit empty in the end that is unexpected. Foam also not that rich. Otherwise decent.

jakubwloszcz (183) - Piastów, POLAND - JUN 8, 2016
Barwa ciemnobrązowa. Piana beżowa, drobnopęcherzykowa, niezbyt obfita, dość szybko opada. W aromacie dominuje czekolada, czuć też kawę i ciemne owoce. W smaku jest bardzo gładkie, aksamitne, są nuty kawy zbożowej, gorzkiej czekolady i paloności. Wysycenie na odpowiednim poziomie, goryczka jest wyraźnie zaznaczona, całkiem przyjemna.

Barwa ciemnobrązowa, z rubinowymi refleksami; piana ciemnobeżowa, niezbyt obfita. W aromacie owoce w czekoladzie, kawa. W smaku przyjemnie gładkie, czuć ten owies, jest paloność, gorzka czekolada, goryczka średnio wysoka. Dobre piwo.

butelka, warka do... hgw. ladna, ciemna, drobnopecherzykowa acz niewysoka i szybko opadajaca do obraczki piana, na ciemno brazowycm piwie. aromaty intensywne, jest i czekolada i kawa, do tego od razu czuc w zapachu, ze to owsiany stout. jest tez nieco ciemnych owocow w odleglejszym tle. w ustach dosc gladki, jak dla mnie ciut za wysoko, poszczypujaco wysycony i ciut nie dajacy tak intensywnych smakow jak aromat zdawal sie obiecywac. pojawia sie tez palonosc, ktorej w aromacie prawie nie bylo. niemalo ciala. goryczka odnotowywalna. "pol-slodki". fajne piwo
