JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Bottle from a newsagent in Uxbridge. Deep brown pour with some hints of ruby and a thin, but consistent carbonation. Soft caramel and molasses in the nose, along with some choc and char. Off to a good start. Body is a bit on the thin side, but has a nice consistency - milky with some grit, appropriate to style. Slight fruitiness emerges but generally tastes quite intensely roasty. Good thing, since I enjoy that flavor for a dry stout.

Echon (41) - DENMARK - JUL 31, 2015
Bottle. Black colour with a brown head. Rich and sweet aroma with notes of roasted malt and coffee. Medium dry taste with a heavy dose of roasted malt. Medium bitterness. Slightly acidic. Medium body, average carbonation, bitter finish. A good stout, but perhaps a bit too dry.

thb (751) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 27, 2015
Too warm and in a mug (so appearance rating a grain of salt). But still an enjoyable experience. Really toasty - lots of burnt toast, cocoa. Has a bitter edge to it, seems to even have some acidity (or just citrus) to sharpen it up.

On tap at "na 7.schode", Zilina. Pours is dark with thick tan head. Sweet aroma of caramel, roasted malts, toffee and bit of a coffee and milk chocolate. Taste is light sweet, light bitter with some coffee like acidic notes. Dry, medium body, light bitter finish.

heyden (110) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 10, 2015
Nose is roasty chocolate. Medium thickness black creamy body. Taste is roasty fulfilling, coffee. Very nicely bittered. Medium long bitter. Not acidic or acrid as with poorly made stouts. Really good for a large scale brewery! Would buy again

Pours dark brown, almost black opaque colour with almost no light brown head, which immidiately dissapeared. Slow rising bubbles. Almost without aroma - I detected only roasted malts and barley, without any ester. Alcohol note is not noticable. Taste is similar: Alcohol note is not noticable, dominate note of roasted and of dark chocolate. Malt sweetness is mild or low-medium, hop bitterness is medium. Finish is dry and bitter, but not so long lastnig.

Sebilinz (1064) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JUN 26, 2015
Bottle. Black body tan head. Aroma id roasted malts with hints of dried fruits. Taste is very smooth and the same. Aftertaste is also very balanced. Nice one.

Russo (1878) - Hemhofen, Baden-WŁrttemberg, GERMANY - JUN 19, 2015
Black color with a thick off-white head. Aroma is sour with notes of grapes, no roasted malts, no coffee, no chocolate, nothing as described by everyone else, Looks like Iíve got a bad one. Flavor is sour as aroma. I need to try another one.

Bottle. Pours pitch black with somewhat small head. Very nice dry stout. I honestly prefer this to Guinness. Not the same mouthfeel but way better roasty flavor. Chocolate, coffee and bread. Nicely hopped and a dry finish.
