MoritzF (8493) - Bochum, - SEP 21, 2012
(bottle) Clear, very dark brown, almost black colour with a beige and firm medium-sized foamy head. Chocolatey and moderately roasted malty aroma with notes of caramel, mocha and an ashy and subtle fruity touch. Quite roasty bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Dry roasty malt-character with burnt notes, dark chocolate, mocha and again a discreetly fruity touch; quite dry and roasty bitter finish with hints of mocha and liquorice spice. A pretty good standard Stout. 31.VIII.12

Keg in the Holly Bush NW3. Dark black colour, thick head. Looks classic, in the style of Guinness. Smooth, some gentle roast, a little fruit. Unfortunately the frozen keg serving tends to dampen flavours somewhat...the cask version is more interesting.

Gurthnar (1822) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle. Aroma roasted malt, light burnt, fruity, but also moderate amount of metallic. Clear dark brown colour, quickly disappearing head. Taste is roasty and fruity, dull metallic flavour. Rather thin body. Light sourness in finish. Average beer.

dynamiteninja (1522) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle. Medium tan head with no retention. Deep mahogany body. Spice, toffee, chocolate, roasted malt, wood smoke, iron, dust, blackberries, pine resin. Sweet then bitter. A little sourness. Dry finish. Well rounded: good balance between malt and hops. Refreshing. Mouthfeel is a little creamy, quite soft with a little oiliness. Excellent.

adster (395) - HUNGARY - SEP 25, 2014
Mély gesztenyebarna testére puha habfedő rajzolódik, mely alól száraz, nemespenészes, illetve pörkölt és angolosan malátás illatok kacsintanak ki. Kakaópor, étcsokoládé, enyhén füstös zamatok tisztázódnak aztán egy kaján édeskés hangulattal, mely benyomásoktól aztán száraz lecsengésük során búcsúzhatunk jó szívvel. Amolyan ivó-stout, melyet a Fuller’s nem annyira a meglepetések kedvelőinek, mint inkább a jól bevált angolszász-vonulat konzervatívabb hívei számára készített. Mindemellett egy tartalmas és kielégítő főzettel van dolgunk, így amennyiben a minőséget a könnyed mondanivalóval kívánjuk párosítani, ne is keresgéljünk tovább!

Pours black, with a firm white head. The aroma is very roasty. Bitter taste, consisting mainly of burnt coffee and liquorice.

Kosmokrator (487) - ITALY - SEP 13, 2014
Nera e quasi impenetrabile con un sottile velo di schiuma beige chiaro. Aroma deboluccio, tostato e leggermente caffettoso con un sentore di cioccolato appena accennato. Gusto un po’ vuoto e abbastanza classico dove si mescolano note di espresso, cacao e malto abbrustolito. Corpo lieve, effervescenza debole, struttura setosa ed un po’ acquosa. Non amo alla follia le stout "semplici" e questa non fa eccezione, anche se tutto sommato č ben "confezionata".

LasseVPedersen (244) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle, 50cl. Pours a black colour that settles with a fine, foamy beige head. In the nose you’ll find roasted, dark malts, coffee, liquorice, milk chocolate and some berries. Flavour follows the nose with roasted creamy malt notes, a light bitter coffee taste that ends with a chocolate, dark fruits silky light and smooth palate. Dry finish with herbal hops in the balanced bitterness. Watery light body, but very delightful mouth-feel. Soft carbonation. Quite good.

greenclansman (800) - Nicosia, CYPRUS - SEP 11, 2014
Thin black color, nice head. Roasted malt aromas, some coffee-light-chocolate. Nice smooth taste, session-able body, balanced aftertaste. Not an amazing stout, but for sure a very decent one.
