Bottle shared at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks Hansen & Zita for this bottle! Pours black to brown with a huge beige head, aroma of hops, pine, pineapple, guava, lemon and a touch of chocolate, flavor is bitter with tangerine, orange, chocolate and dark bread, medium bodied

Moravius (484) - Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 17, 2014
Flasche (33 cl). - Tiefes Kastanienbraun, fast klar; reichlich dunkelbeigefarbener Schaum. - In der Nase Mokka, Bitterschokolade und dezente Nadelwald-Hopfennoten, herb, leicht säuerlich. - Antrunk schlank, fast dünn, schwach malzsüß und leicht säuerlich; wirkt zunächst etwas unentschieden. Noten von Bitterschokolade, Vanille, etwas kalte Zigarettenasche, Holzkohle. Mild rezent, etwas dünnes Mundgefühl, nicht süß. Im Abgang röstige Bittere, etwas Leder, erdige Hopfenbittere. Längerer hopfenbitterer Nachtrunk. - Überraschend dünnes Stout, das zwar kräftige Aromen aufweist, dem aber der kräftige Malzkörper fehlt. Mit der Zeit gewöhnt man sich aber daran, dann wird es regelrecht süffig, auch dank des niedrigen Ethanolgehalts.

Hanoi (394) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2014
Bottle. Nose is dominating Belgian yeast, light malt, light licorice, light smoke. Taste is strong smoke leading to hazelnut, light cocoa, touch of vanilla and a lasting coffee and cigarette finish. Mouthfeel is good. A nice stout.

skoisirius (1715) - Earth, Washington, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Draft at SIB07. Had that one time and have seen it one other time in a store but it wasn’t all that fantastic of an experience to begin with so I skipped it.

Ragnampiza (424) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - SEP 9, 2014
330 ml bottle from Birra+. Very dark red - looks almost black in the glass - with a perfect small, creamy and persistent light beige head. Looks great. Pretty hoppy for a stout, definitely tons of espresso notes, sweet milk chocolate, just a hint of ash/smoke and roasted malts. Wow, I wasn’t expecting such a watery beer. It really lacks a decent body for the style. The bitterness is there and it’s decent, as is the flavour. Coffee, chocolate, perhaps some tobacco as well. Very clean and long aftertaste. Average carbonation, light body, slightly oily texture. I’d have prefrered a propery body, but other than that, no complaints. Nice.

adnielsen (9081) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle @ home, picked up at Liquor Max Loveland. Pours a somewhat cloudy, dark brown / black appearance with a big fluffy, dark brown head. The aroma has some licorice, burnt sugar, nuts, caramel, and dark fruit. A little chalky mouth feel. Low sweetness. Moderate low bitterness. Somewhat earthy flavor with anise and dark chocolate and roast. Pretty high carbonation. Seems to me like this should be a foreign stout. Pretty chill brew.

Beese (1783) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle at GBBF 2014. Pouted black, with a dense tan head. Aroma of grain, caramel and liquorice. Thick mouth feel. Molasses and rum flavours, with some vanilla pod. Finish was ryebred, toffee and burnt malt.

Beertobealive (238) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2014
Heavy coffee like head. Forest mushroom and rotten wood aromas. Dark black body. Malts are soft with little chocolate and round in mouth. Not bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

guiroul33 (40) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - AUG 26, 2014
Aroma: chocolate, coffee, leather. Appearance: black, tan foam. Bitter taste with notes of coffee and smoked malts. Soft carbonation, bitter and astringent finish. Overall: stouts are not my favorite beers but this one is quite good actually, you can taste the bitterness and yeast from Brasserie de la Senne which makes It special.

Dark brown pour from draft at proletariat. Weird rye earthy aroma. Citrus and seeds. Inventive but hard to take
