Douberd (2078) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2014
Taster at Zeebra II. Totally black pour with a small but thick dark brown head, average retention on my taster, light lacing on the glass. Aroma of chocolate, wood, ash, a bit of oats. Taste of dark roasted malts, strong coffee, oats, with a good bitterness, a bit of alcohol. Medium thick body, good carbonation, sticky palate. Very good.

DocJitsu (844) - Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Pours an opaque, extremely dark brown and with perhaps the darkest orange-caramelized brown color I’ve seen in a head. Smooth, creamy, and bumpy appearance. A lot of chocolate in the aroma. Lighter coffee, smoke, and olive notes. Smooth, viscous texture. Powerful flavors of chocolate, smoke, a bit of sour wood, some unflavored tobacco, and lingering bitterness at the finish.

aenima (242) - Askim, SWEDEN - JUL 16, 2014
Aroma of bourbon, chocolate, coffee and roast. The taste is dominated by the bourbon. Some chocolate, toffee, coffee and roast in the background. The DORIS is so much better.

Kolsvart tjock vätska med mellanstort mörkbrunt skum. Doftar massor med kaffe och choklad! Smaken är fyllig med kaffe, choklad, vanilj och väldigt rostat! Mycket bra öl! !

Benzai (7302) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2014
Opaque pitch black color, medium to full sized brown head that lasts for quite a while. Aroma is malts, dark malts, some roastyness, coffee and dark chocolate. Tastes about the same: malts, dark malts, roastyness, some alcohol, chocolate quite heavily. Medium to full body and carbonation.

TheCametron (1751) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 24, 2014
Bottle with Martin ahead of BOX’s Brazilian Birthday Bonanza. I remember drinking one of these with Benh some time ago also. Pure tidy so it is. Pours oily Black with an inspiring Brown head. Aroma is boozy chocolate and roasty coffee. Rich flavour with a weighty, robust body. Chocolatey warmth. It’s a real beaut. Drank this one immediately after the Bourbon County Stout. I reckon BCS pips it. Only just though...

dexcansino (431) - Andalucía, SPAIN - JUN 14, 2014
Cerveza negra, muy negra. Me huele a tabaco. Sabor muy complejo, miel de caña, toffee, especias, hierbas, ron, café. Una maravilla. La botella perfecta para compartir entre dos.

beeratarian (86) - cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Pours black as night. Aromas of coffee alcohol and roasty malt. Taste is the same minus the coffee. Lots of alcohol flavor for only 9.4%. Good beer but not the best imp stout.
