NosirIwont (1980) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2013
Bottle. 3.9%. Bottled April 2010. Gusher. Pours almost black with a dark tan head. Sweetish, somewhat roasted aroma, with a touch of coffee and a slightly tart note at first, the latter turning sour as it warms. Flavour is sour and roasted, with hints of vanilla and chocolate, but drowning in the sourness. Finish is sour and roasted as well, and with a lingering cold coffee note which is accompanied but a spicy/cloves note as it warms. Overall so-so. The coffee note is nice, but the sourness ruins it; don’t know if it was it a bad bottle, or if the claim that it would be good for 5 years (if kept cool and dark) is a bit of a stretch. 11.12.13.

jmgreenuk (4634) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 15, 2013
Bottle from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a deep dark mahogany with a frothy off-white head. The aroma is malty and of sour fruit. The flavour is medium to strong bitter, the sour fruit is there too along with some yeast, and spicy hops. The palate is a little watery. A stout? It reminds me of a black IPA.

Huhzubendah (2618) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle shared by ygtbsm94. Thanks Brad. Brewed 3 Mar 2010 Bottled April 2010 The beer is chestnut brown with an enormous tan head that encompasses most of the snifter after decanting only a couple ounces. As the foam gradually recedes, it leaves a thick sheet of lacing in its wake. The aroma offers malt, biscuits, bread. It definitely smells like it was brewed in the English style. The flavor is just eh...even a bit off. The finish brings a light astringency that seems to linger, discouraging me from partaking in further sips. Also, this doesn’t taste like an English stout. While I respect the fact that style guidelines are often blurred these days, as brewers and breweries become more exploratory and creative, I have at least a mild expectation to taste an English stout when I pour an English stout into my glass. The feel is light bodied. While the low alcohol and thin body might make this sessionable, the off flavors and odd nature of the beer prevent this. Overall, eh...
