daknole (10220) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 8, 2009
Yuck. Brown pour. Roasted malt, spent coffee grounds and some odd fruits as well. Flavor is very roasty and bitter and the flavor is really not good. Some weird flavors, too bitter, fail.

thedm (5066) - Fort Wayne, USA - SEP 5, 2009
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of all foam finely sized brown colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a opaque no visible carbonation brown colored body and thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was brown malt mild malt and dark malt. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The thin flavor contained notes of dark malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

DruncanVeasey (7633) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2009 Bottle, fresh off the boat. One sniff and this went straight in the dimpled Bavik mug; aroma truly stouty BC English ashiness, coal and apple with the sweeter, plummier Belgian yeast, ink and mushroom ketchup teasing out as it warms. Charcoal black with muddier edges and a dense yellow-beige head going nowhere. Perfectly poised plum, stone fruit softness, sulphur and chocolate tipping into ash, bittering (lightly citric)hop and well-done barley faintly charring the finish. Fat lacing body, silken and unsugary at 4.5%. Cigar wreathes, plum jam on burnt toast with a shave of cocoa. For now, the best (sessionable)Belgian stout out there.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 30, 2009
Bottle. Pours black brown, thick off white head. Aroma is very grassy and chemical with some fruity tangy notes. Flavor is slightly thin, some smoke, graham cracker, malt, smoke, meat. More like a dry stout with a crazy aroma.

have to disagree with the crowd here, to me this seemed pretty much a failed attempt at dry stout.

Strykzone (5501) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 19, 2009
The blackest beer I have ever seen. It is well deserving of a cool themed name. Small tan head that has good retention and finally ends in a blotchy pattern. Aroma is roasted malt, dark fruit, and cigarette ash. Flavor is harsh ashy smokiness and that dominates. Some bittersweet chocolate is underneath. This is a dry, smoky and bitter beer. Almost no sweetness to be found.

Fred82 (2115) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 15, 2009
Bottle at Delerium, Bruxelles. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Hints of smokey malt. Taste is a bit smoked and roasted malt. Some very sweet caramel also. Quite dry and bitter. Some hints of peach also.

Travlr (15622) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 1, 2009
Nearly completely black with a very large and vibrant tan head. Aroma of alcohol and coffee. Full bodied. Flavor starts off mild, then notes of milk chocolate come through, then roasted coffee, and finally a burnt coffee finish. Very nice indeed.

saxo (14705) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2009
Bottle. Medium head with medium duration. Color is dark brown. Aroma and taste are roast malt, chocolate and notes of coffee.

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.
