ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - SEP 30, 2009
Dark pour but not quite inky. Really thin beige head. Aroma of coffee, raisin, and cocoa. Vanilla and oaky tannins up front. Chocolate, coffee, fog, heavy roast (almost smokey) and carmelized sugar. Dry finish. Silky smooth mouth-feel

Beeronaut (176) - Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2009
Pours very very dark brown, pretty much black by most peoples standards. No head to speak of, great aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, plum and raisins waft immediately from the bottle. Aroma from the glass: more coffee and very dark choc, some burnt sugar. On the palate lots of dark fruits, and stone fruit, dates, figs, plums, some muscovado sugar, molasses, almost a root beer quality to it. Lots of coffee, earth and chocolate, also some kind of spirit, rum or something of that ilk. The feel of the beer is excellent, soft, velvety with no carbonation, it’s just like taking gulps of an oil slick... this is literally palate coating brew of the highest order. Great complexity but seriously intense. Not as good as the Tsarina Esra but still a cracking piece of brewing. Finish is nicely bitter with a bit of a tang, but not nearly as cloying as you would first expect. Good work.

jstraw (1917) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2009
Dark mahogany with big, flotsam, mottled brown head / Slightly metallic, muted nose of cigar box, chocolate, and roast barley / Medium to full body, moderately chewy, very malty but with excellent hop balance, and good, although slightly hot, finish / Rich flavors of cigar box, semisweet chocolate, dark roast coffee, vanilla, oak, and bourbon / Must be spectacular upon aging.

Finwe (412) - Grankulla, FINLAND - SEP 17, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2009 75 cl bottle @ Kaisla. Pours pitch black with a small head. Roasted malt and some bitterness in the aroma. Fascinating taste of almost perfectly balanced hops and roasted malt with notes of dark chocolate and coffee. One of the best beers Ive tasted.

Another belting wedding gift from our Mes, cheers again mate, you did us proud. Black with honeycomb like head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, lovely smell. Flavour has similar and with a faint hint of fruit and hops, touch of smoke, aniseed and a strong blokey earthy manliness. Thick palate, strength is evident, and very welcome. Very tasty, very enjoyable.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - SEP 15, 2009
This corked and caged bottled brew from a bottle shopmarked brewed 8/27/08 bottled 9/26/08 #244 poured a head of all foam. The fom came up and out of the bottle as it poured. The pour resulted in a head of fine to large sized dark brown colored bubbles that left behind an opaque black colored body, no visible carbonation and a sparce lacing. The aroma was mild vinous dark brown malt and a mild medicinal note. The strong vinous flavor contained notes of hops roasted malt and dark malt. Very yummy! Excellent brew. Watchout for this killer!

AmEricanbrew (5800) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - SEP 5, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2009 Bottled 26 Sept 2008. Big pop of the cork followed by a slow eruption of brown foam. Pours black with a brown head. Huge milk chocolate, mild coffee aromas. Frothy explosive mouthfeel. Once this glass aired out , the flavor was rich milk chocolate with dark roasted malts. As it warmed some black malts lead to a nicely bitter finish. Great sippin’ stout.

Bottle. Flat looking black beer with an oaty and malty aroma. The flavour is roasted and richly malty. Overall a nice very rich, malty, roasted and lightly bitter beer.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2009
2008 bottle #317. Thank you a million times to Jan & Charlotte. Pours a crazy thick viscous glug glug, has a lasting brown head. Head looks fizzy and aerated but it lasts very long. Crazy aromatic! Lots of rich, rich, decadent luscious chocolate. Smells boozy in a good way. More chocolate than anything else in the aroma, not a lot of coffee and not a lot of fruit either except for some sour cherries hanging low. Smooth palate with good lively carbonation. Light and soft and yet thick at the same time. Dangerously drinkable. Lots of roast and is almost burnt. Very nice. Finishes exceptionally clean but has quite a bit of heat. Flavors do include some coffee and finishes with a whack of dark chocolate. Then as it warms I smell the hops...NICE brew :)
