Boutip (5060) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 3, 2012
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a medium size brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of dry roasted malt with light black chocolate notes. Taste is also a well balanced mix between some black chocolate with dry roasted malt notes. Body is about average for style with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Another one of this brewery beer which I find to be brewed exactly per style guideline with no flaws though lacking a little bit of soul or something to distinguish itself.

visionthing (3384) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2012
Bottle at Amundsen. Pours black with a tiny light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and dried fruits. Quite sweet and fruity with a light bitterness. Some taste of alcohol, but not disturbing. Slightly dry finish, but all in all a litte too sweet for my taste.

[ASPETTO] nera, impenetrabile [SCHIUMA] color nocciola, fine, media presenza, buona persistenza e ottimo lacing [OLFATTO] buona intensità: malti torrefatti, con sentori di caffè , cioccolato amaro, liquirizia; note alcoliche liquorose [GUSTO] intensa, malti consistenti, con note dolci che sostengono bene il peso inesorabile di amaricanti torrefatti decisi, che forniscono sapori di caffè, cioccolato fondente con una punta astringente, vaniglia e un colpo di coda di liquirizia. Sul finale entrano prepotenti anche le note alcoliche, che infondono note balsamiche e liquorose. retrogusto duraturo, con un ruvido amaro che rimane a lungo nella gola. [TEXTURE] corpo medio alto, densa e consistente al palato, bassa carbonazione ; percezione alcolica evidente [COMMENTO FINALE] buona, consistente ed impattante come ci si aspetta da una (russian) imperial stout. I gradi ci sono tutti, non si nascondono e lasciano un finale caldo, speziato, liquoroso. Complice un corpo oleoso e una varietà di sfumature che comunque girano attorno ad un contrasto dolce - amaro ben gestito. un bel pezzo di cioccolato, una camino acceso mentre fuori nevica, un coppa di emelisse e si va dritti nel mondo dei sogni: piccoli piaceri della vita. prima scoperta della marca.. a seguire altre della medesima.

Cuso (5679) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 16, 2012
Bottle from bierzwerg.de web shop. Black color with no head. Aroma of raisins, roasted malt, chocolate, coffee. Taste, licorice, prunes, chocolate, coffee, alcohol. Strong alcoholic bitter finish. Nice, I think, I’d grab some for aging.

onkelgobber (153) - Edinburgh, - FEB 12, 2012
33cl bottle at Appelation Wines, thanks Ash. Pours dark brown/black and opaque. The nose has an earthy feel, but some slight hops as well. The taste has malt, burnt chocolate and alcohol. Big palate, but the alcohol is too dominant. Overall a bit too alcohol focused.
