Wow, if ever there was a beer that gained from being let warm up. At first this seemed harsh and boozy, which of course doesn’t make too much sense. Decent aroma, on the roasty chocolate side, as it warms the mouthfeel and flavor improve. Pretty decent. How does it compare to Kalamazoo or something like that? Well, I’m not totally sure-I’m not sure why this is in the sweet stout section.

suurjuust (1875) - ESTONIA - AUG 28, 2015
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.

rafael52 (341) - Łódź, POLAND - AUG 26, 2015
Kolor: bardzo ciemnobrunatny, prawie czarny.
Piana: bardzo obfita, ale słabo zbudowana, średnio i grubo pęcherzykowa, strzela i szybko opada.
Zapach: poro ciemnych słodów, gorzka czekolada, kakao, kawa, wyraźne aromaty palone.
Smak: wytrawne, niska pełnia, sporo nut ciemnych słodów, kawy, kakao, gorzkiej czekolady, wyraźna paloność, delikatna kwaśność, goryczka średnia w kierunku wysokiej, palona.
Wysycenie: wysokie, zdecydowanie za duże.

heman (207) - 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 (1620) - 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 (2158) - 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.

leghorn99 (124) - Livorno, ITALY - JUL 23, 2015
Versa color ebano, impenetrabile; la schiuma č alta due dita, molto densa, di un bel marrone scuro, la ritenzione č buona, che si riduce a un cappello sottile, leggera allacciatura. Aroma di cioccolato fondente, malto tostato, avena, caramello, e melassa; con un po ’di vaniglia e alcol. Alcuni aromi sono molto gradevoli, e dalla buona persistenza. In bocca inizia dolce, cioccolato fondente e farina d’avena, poi; malto tostato, caramello, melassa. Transizione ad un’amarezza decente sul finale, con sapore di caffč. Palato cremoso e liscio, l’alcool riscalda lievemente nel finale. Carbonazione media, ma senza togliere cremositŕ al palato, corpo medio-pieno.
