TaxiDriver (1553) - Stadland, GERMANY - JUL 23, 2009
Bottle. A malty aroma, some coffee and later also some chocolate. The body is black. The head is beige, lively and small with a short duration. The taste is very bitter, coffee and some bitter chocolate. The finish is long and metallic. A lively carbonation, a medium strong body and creamy-lively.

zdk (1822) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 12, 2009
Bottle in La Bier Circus (Brussels). Light, fizzy body with a nice clear taste. Delicious chocolate/coffee overtones. Could be not exactly in style (?) but still quite good.

DonMagi (5595) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2009
Bottle at the rake De La Senne tasting, numerous samples. Alround rating: Roasty chocolate malt, clear roasted barley character, theres some hop notes, herbal and grassy touch resinous, a bit of candy sugar like sweetness(though he said theres not any in it) balances it out and makes it very drinkable. Good carbonation.

Eructoblaster (3294) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 30, 2009
Bottle - 330ml. Dark brown (almost black) body with low carbonation and a thick beige foamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with grainy and chocolate hints. Taste carries roasty notes and ends with a decent bitter/roasty finish. Enjoyable.

dnstone (2350) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 26, 2009
An enjoyable stout; light, nut flavor and a nice lace and clean finish. Though I tend to enjoy heavier/fuller stouts I wouln’t hesitate to have a second. A good "gateway" stout.

Rune (9079) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 22, 2009
Bottle, thanks to Skinnyviking. Beige, creamy head. Cloudy, dark-brown in appearance. Dry, roasted malts and grain in aroma and flavour. Notes of sweet caramel. Some acid yeast to the ending that prevent it from getting too sweet. Actually, quite well balanced. Medium bodied. OK (København, 13.05.2009).

lumpsowers (287) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 19, 2009
Cola pour, low head, lots of lace, clinging bubbles. Fruity aroma. Fizzy, with a tasty alcoholic and nutty flavor. Very fizz for a stout, with a bitter winy taste, very good.

twitcher (298) - framingham, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 14, 2009
bottle. Interesting pour- from the bottle, looks more like a middling dark amber; in the glass, shows the more typical dark opaque stout blackness. Nothing Especially menacing, but average- dark, opaque black, some brown highlights around the edges, thin light tan head that leaves a long lasting layer and some decent lacing. Interesting nose- heavy roasted malts- with some dark fruity notes, and some light boozy phenols. Flavor deviates from the nose a fair amount... big, heavy roasted grainy malts, and a hefty dose of milky lactic sharpness. Light fruity bitterness. Interesting blend of flavors, but said flavors don’t really blend well. Palate is full and rich, though with a tad bit more carbonation than I’d like. Overall- very interesting, if untraditional stout. Flawed, but good qualities overshadow said flaws.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 11, 2009
Bottled. Pretty disappointing. The nose is thin and lackluster, with astringent black malts and a touch of milk. The flavor shows a hint of coffee up front, but is almost pure astringency through the entire body, only in the finish does it gain some redeeming qualities and complexity. A drinkable body is again blocked by the astringency.
