bier_fuer_hamm (9) - Hamm, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 31, 2015 does not count
Stout typisches Kaffee- und Schokoladenaroma. Mit 4,5 % fŁr ein Stout recht schwach. Gut geeignet fŁr Einsteiger!

GlassBrass440 (210) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 30, 2015
Pours jet black with a whipped tan head. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, peanut shells, and caramel. Flavor is roasty with mild, fruity yeast esters. The finish is decidedly dry and roasty with chocolate and espresso. The mouthfeel can only be described as powdery. This is a classic for a reason.

HopfenWeisse (1230) - - MAR 24, 2015

AlfredoGarcia (86) - Santiago, CHILE - MAR 20, 2015
500 ml bottle. Very malty smell, not toasted at all, sweet and caramel has well. Deep dark look with brown little head. Low carbonation with soft toasted taste and with long aftertaste. Good refreshing stout.

Vaiz (3730) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 20, 2015
Bottle at home. Black pour, thick tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, some ripe dark fruits, sugary malts, caramel and some fruity hops. Flavor is slightly bitter, nice and sweet, a very decent body for the low ABV and a great balance. Well drinkable stout. Nice one.

Derbeth (429) - Krakůw, POLAND - MAR 17, 2015
Bottle. Black colour, rocky head that disappears rather quickly. Aroma is quite intensive liquorice, a bit roasty. I would expect more coffee and dark chocolate from a stout... Light sweetness. Light body, quite smooth. Itís ok, but lacks character and does not taste like a stout.
