DSG (10950) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 22, 2012
Bottle shared at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks Hansen & Zita for this bottle! Black-colored with a beige to light brown head. Aroma of roastiness, some slightly acidic fruitiness, a bit of cocoa and herbal hops hints. Roasty flavor, starts sweetish and malty, continues drier and finishes with some hoppy bitterness. Medium-bodied. Not bad.

SamP01 (652) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 2, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy dark brown with a small quickly dissipating tan head. Aroma is of dry dark roasted malt, chocolate with a bit of dark dried fruity esters. Taste is sweet dry roasted chocolate malt flavored with some mild bitterness. Palate is a medium body with some good carbonation. Finishes with a dry roasted dark cacao malt with some bitterness on the end for balance. Overall not the best in class but a good respectable brew.

Ron (3418) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Black pour with a little off whte head with some lace on the sides of the glass and rising carbonation bubbles. Sourish aromas, mild roast as well. The mouthfeel is below average. The taste is a mild stout, with roast right there. Sourish roast, a tad astringent, in the finish.

MrChopin (3999) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 10, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2013 hazy dark red-sepia, head becomes wispy white island with thicker ring. Nose shows plum, cocoa, and dust, refreshing thanks to a fresh kick of grassy hops. Very dry flavor shows heavy cocoa and grass at front, mid clay and cake, bit overtaken by dry, heavy carbonation, light dust and chocolate in finish. Very nice and light, but a softer body would allow for larger profile.

GT2 (9411) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Tap at CK. Pours a clear, deep ruby to black. Beige mocha bubbles. Nose is thick mocha and coffee. Dense ganache and cocoa. Taste is lighter, sparkling, tangy. Clean and roasty. No malt presence. Mild earth. Palate is a bit weak. Very sessionable. Amazing richness and roast for the low abv. Taste gains oil and black cherry. Palate is richer and clean. Very good. +1 for low abv and huge presence.

A bit brown in color. Smells pretty decent. This is nice. A solid dry stout flavor. Not too heavy. An easy way to start the friday stout beer tasting.
