imdownthepub (10235) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2013
Cask conditioned at The Craft Beer Co. Clerkenwell, London. Dark brown with cream head. Heady alcohol, plummy, apricot at the start masking much of the dark roasted malts. Sweetish, full on the palate. Decent enough.

mR_fr0g (3135) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2013
Keg at Euston tap. Cascading dense cream head that persists. Opaque black pour. Aroma is big on the tuty fruity hops with peach soft roast. Flavour is smooth biscuit toasty coffee malt with a hint of chocolate then the hops come in with earthyness and berries that play of the roast really well. Assertive smooth bitterness from the hops and roast combine. Roast lingers. Medium full smooth body. Touch mineral character. Very nice hoppy stout.

Russo (1685) - Campinas, BRAZIL - NOV 14, 2013

Idiosynkrasie (3810) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 14, 2013
750ml bottle. Clear, deep ruby red glowing, darkest brown colour with small, creamy, fairly lasting, more than minimally lacing, beige head. Herbal hoppy aroma, notes of hay, minimally citrusy hoppy, a touch of grapefruit. Taste is moderately bitter hoppy, slightly fruity, a touch of grapefruit, orange, some hay, subtle hints of dark chocolate with orange zest touch, also a touch of coffee; lasting dry dark malty and bitter hoppy finish. More Black IPA-ish hoppy than Stout-ish malty.

Inbreak (2129) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 28.09.2013, tap @ Borefts:
Small slightly brown shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly fresh roasted, dark malts, hops, coffee, rubber, licorice, hay, pine needles. Taste is slightly fresh and dry, dark malts, hops, grass, leafs, cardboard, hay, rubber. Longlasting bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Fair enough, reminds me more of a black IPA though.
