UPDATED: OCT 8, 2011 The purple bottom reminds me in nothing of Zeeland where it comes from. :-) Neither do the looks... Big black body with nutty brown head. Surprisingly hoppy aroma; floral, resin, toffee, cookie dough and pecan. Light to medium bodied but packing loads of flavour. A malty sweetness, slightly fatty, but halfway really punches out the hops. Left with a slightly sticky feel that I quite like. Great brew! (33cl bottle, 3,00 EUR?)

tkrjukoff (4243) - SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2011
Bottle 33 cl @ Alko, Arkadia, Helsinki. Pours pitch black with a small bubbly brown head leaving lacing. Aroma is rich fullbodied malty, dark fruits, hoppy, roasted, slightly sweet and alcohol. Fullbodied velvety mouthfeel. Flavor is roasted, acidy, meaty, fruity, bitter, slightly sweet, dark fruits and warming alcohol. Fruity tingling palate. Finishes roasted and longlived bitter tart.

Bottle from Alko. Poured black color with a thin brown head. Roasted malt and milk chocolate in aroma. Coffee and roasted malt in flavor, coffee coming more through in finish, with some chocolate also. Alcohol well hidden. Nice IS.

Another great beer that I should have left for another occasion. Pulled it out of the cooler during a concert in 90 degree weather, bad mistake. I just couldn’t enjoy the flavors and aromas. It was pitch black and had a nice aroma to it, but my mouth was parched and I needed something lighter at the time.

11.2 oz. bottle, split with Matts_Property, pours black with a small ring of tan head. Aroma of rich roasted malt, oats, subtle espresso notes and mild chocolate. Flavour is quite dense with very rich roasted malts, espresso and hints of dark cocoa. Oily palate, with a slightly bitter finish. Delicious.

markwise (5011) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2011
Thanks to IBrew2or3 for the share. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Nose is chocolate, slight dark fruit, hoppy (almost woody/ cedary), booze, and some heat. Flavor is similar with wood, roast, coffee, dark fruit, and some heat. Medium in body and not bad at all.

reneehulshoff (2) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2011 does not count
This hoppy stout is a Russian with a hammer. with 11% alc. and a lot of taste it’s a bottle to share or to finish the night. A lot of hop tastes, chocolate and coffee.

Cybercat (4434) - Georgia, USA - MAY 27, 2011
Strong, oily aroma has roast coffee, molasses and miso components. It pours a deep, opaque sable just a whisker above black with a thick, fizzy and rather persistent light tan head. Rich, mouth-filling flavor has firm coffee, molasses, unsweet chocolate and nutty tones with hoppy and miso underpinnings, as well as quite an alcohol bite. Texture is smooth and thick, but tingly and lively as well, quite satisfying.
