PotjeBier (1732) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 22, 2012
Cask @ In De Wildeman. Deep dark color, but not quite opaque. No head to speak of. Aroma’s: roasted/gebrand, sweet drop/licorice, cocoa. Flavor is medium sweet, roasted. Body is medium. Still quite some carbonation. Finishes fairly dry, roasted (some ash) and medium bitter. Really nice.

Leighton (11322) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear, red-brown with a small, beige foam head. Dry, ashy roast nose. Light to medium sweet flavor, more ash, light roast, light baking cocoa, mellow earthy bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Semi-dry finish with plenty of baking cocoa, restrained roasted malts, some dried cherries, light bitterness. Very pleasant stout, though certainly not a super complex beer.

snzcujo (282) - RUSSIA - NOV 4, 2012
Tasted on tap @Grove Inn, Huddersfield, on 03/11/2012. Pours sticky black with a lovely 1/2 inch beige head. Aroma is faint, roasted malts. Mouthfeel is a bit silky smooth, medium-to-low carbonation level. Taste is just normal, no surprises, medium acidic, again roasted tones and a hint of vanilla in the back. An ok beer, definitely could be better for its 6,2% alc. Neutral. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FatPhil (9405) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 28, 2012
Bottle (Botle Shop, Canterbury) batch 200OS02 bottled 10may2012, bb+1y.
Sweet roast, touch of choc and some ligher esters in the aroma. Some sharpness too. Jet black, large tight spongy head. Full sweet refreshing palate, pleasantly crisp carbonation. Both a sweet chocolatey side to the roast, but also a little bit of dryness and stale coffe later. Some mineraliness in places fleetingly, and the estery side fortunately stays. Covers 6.2% well, doesn’t seem stronger than a sessionable one. Finish is mostly chocolate malts. Full and lush - very nice.

Opaque black beer. Mild dark malt nose. Quite a crisp palate for a stout. Light as well. A little lactose sweetness well blended with the dark malt. Not dry or bitter. Fresh tasting and minerally. More Porter than Stout for me but light and drinkable.

sebletitje (6784) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 9, 2012
Cask @ Brussels British Embassy Jubilee garden party. Thanks Cécile. Brune foncée allant sur le noir, col léger beige laissant une fine pellicule sur le verre. Arôme est malté grillé avec un fin bouquet d’écume maritime et salin. En bouche, malt grillé, sur un léger chocolat palais épais et crémeux laissant une pointe minérale. Garde ce profile stout anglais avec une fin couche d’amertume persistante en fin de bouche.

Bottled at chriso´s. Near black, small head. Fruity coffee aroma. Mid sweet with medium body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Mid intensity flavour of chocolate and prunes, some ashy bitterness.

jackl (4671) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Cask. Very dark color, with little head. The aroma’s sweet, roasted malts abound. The taste is sharp, metallic and salty, but finishes rather sweet. Certainly not your run of the mill stout. This stout’s very slick and oily on the tongue. Overall, a strange beer. I appreciate it, but wouldn’t have it regularly.

pivnizub (8920) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - NOV 9, 2011
Bottle: Almost black, small tanned head, rural leathery nose, traces of chocolate underneath; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied as expected; dry malt-bitter finish, dark malt and chocolate included. Not great.....
