bombshelter (349) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 21, 2007
Bottle, Porte Noire. Opaque black. Big tan head. Aroma is caramel, roasted coffee. Medium body, flavor is more mildly caramelized malts, fading into a very dry finish, roast, and just a hint of residual sugar. Quite good.

TBone (12333) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 14, 2007
Draught@One Pint Pub, Helsinki
Dark, almost opaque black color, small off-white head. Roasted, chocolaty aroma. Roasted malty flavor, not very heavy body. Mainly roasted, roasted - burned malty - one-dimensional flavor. Some tar, vegetables, coffee beans. Not much a sweet stout. Ok, but doesnít turn you on.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2007
(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Hazy, dark brown with a tall and lively, beige head leaving some laces. Weak, burned nose. Fairly light in body with burned malt accents and a surprisingly - for Belgium - malt astringent finish. 051007

yespr (30689) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2007
33 cL bottle, thanks to brewfiend. Pours dark brown with a huge light brown head. Slight spiced roasted malt aroma. Has some yeasty and liqourice notes too. Smoked dark roated flavour into the finish. Ends bitter hoppy and burned malty. Nice. Lacks some body to be really great.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2007
Bottle. Almost black colored beer. Cardemom, cinnamon and brown sugar in the aroma. Lightly sweetish flavor, spicy, especially in the aftertaste. Thin, but a well balanced beer.

holdenn (2078) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 18, 2007
Well iíve been craving biscuits and gravy for a while and what better to pair it with than a stout. As this one appears to be the only one in my fridge, iíll give it a try. 33cl bottle pours a dark brown with a paper thin beige head. Aroma of chocolate, burnt malts, slightly nutty. Abundant and nice at first but already as i rate its not as strong. Initial flavors are burnt and on the front of my tongue, coffee and chocolate that quickly fade to a chalky earthy toasted bitter chocolate finish. Slightly watery. Overall it doesnít provide the bitterness to stand up to my biscuits and gravy. I guess my morning coffee will have to do that with the left overs.

Beerdedone (2573) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 13, 2007
Bottle sampled with stegosaurus. Pours black with a nice tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, and light coffee. Flavor is roasted malts, caramel, and some dried fruits with a dry finish.

iowaherkeye (2690) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - SEP 11, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2007 11.2oz, no date. Opaque black with a one finger tan head that fades to a film after a minute or so. Aroma consists of some mild roasted malts, chocolate, some roasted grain--I canít pick up on anything else. Smoky ashy flavor is the only addition to the aroma, and it sticks out the most. Minimal sweetness from the flavor, though the aroma led otherwise. Low bitterness with a chalky ashy finish. Moderate carbonation with a light body. The lady at Beertopia in Omaha talked this up like it was a good beer--an excellent Belgian stout, she said. It isnít.

Svesse (6041) - Hšsselby, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2007
(Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm) Black colour with foamy pale brown head. Roasted, slightly malty nose with coffee, cocoa and notes of citrussy hops. Slightly closed. Roasted taste with notes of coffee, tobacco and cocoa, dry throughout with lots of coffeeish bitterness in the finish. Light body, dry, with lots of bitterness. A bit thin for a stout, but still a very nice beer (and not sweet at all).

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - SEP 9, 2007
Bottle@Home. Coffee and black currant aroma. Black color, light brown disappearing head, no lace. No sweetness, bitter, coffee. Thin and one dimensional.
