redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Sweet coffee and bitter chocolate on the nose. Pours black with a beige head. Bitter coffee notes upfront with roasted malts and bitter dark chocolate. The beer is bitter but finishes with a nice sweetness.

radagast83 (5069) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - DEC 9, 2014
12oz, long neck bottle at Raku in DC. Poured a dark cola color with a creamy tan head. Aroma is light roast. Flavor is light chocolate, creamy malt notes. Interesting. A bit macro, thin, but sufficient for dinner.

TBone (12998) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 22, 2014
Can 350ml (from Japan)
Deep ruby color, small beige head. Aroma is a bit ashy, cardboardish-papery. Medium-bodied. Toasted malty, licorice, caramel, bitterish aftertaste. Even with roastyness gives a bit Baltic Porterish feeling. Taste is ok, but aroma was bland.

jinroh (430) - ESTONIA - AUG 30, 2014
330ml bottle from Yamaya Liquors. Pours dark brown, almost black with a beige head. Foam is not too rich but some lacing stays for longer. Aroma has roasted malt, is quite soft. Taste is soft as well, almost like a milk stout / kind of sweet and soft roast. Aftertaste is nice, has a lot of roast, bitter chocolate. Overall quite nice brew, on the sweeter side but quite enjoyable.

vulcanmeister (199) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Pours from 330ml bottle nearly black with a beige head. Lightly roasted malts, toffee, chocolate, and light earthy notes. Very low carbonation sweet roasty finish.

DSG (6337) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 6, 2014
Can sample at a tasting at Naama’s place. Thanks Naama. Black with a small light brown head. Pleasant aroma of roast, chocolate, a bit of coffee, slightly acidic and a light smoky touch. Bittersweet flavor, roast, with a smoky note, chocolate, a bit of coffee and a drier finish with some bitterness. Rounded mouthfeel.

maxwelldeux (3802) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours a near-black color with a moderate tan had on it. Nose is fairly roasty, with some dark fruit and licorice elements I usually associate with a Russian Imperial Stout. Taste is roasty and a bit more bitter than I usually prefer in a stout. Dry. OK, but nothing remarkable.

vipinvelp (2362) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2014
Black with small lacing light brown foam head. Aroma is liquorice, candy, some coffee there too. Taste is pleasant, roast, coffee, some light bitter. Smooth feeling in mouth. Aftertaste is turning towards the sweet again. Interesting stout. (Madrid 201405)

DuffMan (7030) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 27, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Well, I’m not going to over-analyze this but I will say that I was expecting a shitty brew and was pleasantly surprised. This a not bad stout, a tad sweet, but nicely roasty and creamy.
