JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2008
Courtesy hopscotch. Black pour, little bits of broken white head. Chalky, sweet dark malt aroma, slight lactose presence. Thinnish palate. Mild sweet notes over slight roast, some lactose on the back end. Decent, but palate suffers a bit.

hopscotch (10130) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 28, 2008
Bottle... NFL Day at dchmela’s in O-Town... This beer rocks!... Pours pitch black with a large, creamy, beige head. Fantastic retention. Although restrained, the aroma is nutty, buttery and chocolaty... rich and wonderful. Full-bodied and creamy with soft carbonation. Chocolaty, vinous and acidic. Tangy, lightly bitter finish. Thanks to douglas88 for providing this world class bottle of beer!

dchmela (2848) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 23, 2008
Thanks to hopscotch for this gem. Pours a black slightly watery color with a thin tan head. Roasty grain aroma with hints of dark fruits. Smooth malt taste, roasted grains and hints of fruit and chocolate. A very refreshing stout, very solid and something I could really drink a lot of.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - SEP 10, 2008
Botella from thewolf. Pours a black colour with a small fairly well lasting light brown creamish head. Aroma of roasted malt and caramel with some dark fruits. Good mouthfeel. The flavour has a pleasant sweetness with roasted malt and caramel along with dark fruits, some chocolate and smoke. Roasty bit sweet finish. Bit thin but good.

Rune (9401) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2008
325ml bottle bought at The bsf bar, GBBF. Dense, brownish head over a very dark body. Dark malty aroma. Bitter malts in taste. Rather thick, oily texture. Full bodied (05.08.2008).

Skinnyviking (7905) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2008
Bottle. High fluffy lasting light brtown head. Very dark almost black body. Sweet coffee nuts vanilla aroma. Some hops bitterness comes through in the flavor but the vanilla is milding that and flavor of coffee a lot. General impression: Pretty sweet. Low carbonation. Long aftertaste.

Sigmund (5798) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2008
330 ml bottle, at the GBBF 2008. ABV was 7.5%. Served too cold. Pitch black colour, moderate head. Roasty aroma, notes of rubber, malts and coffee. The flavour is heavily roasted / burnt with grainy and rubbery notes - quite strange. I hate it and love it - simultaneously.
