Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 12, 2007
Bottled 33cl. It pours a black beer with a beautiful big light brown head. Strong flavours of tar and black chocolate. Extremly smooth mouthfeel. Very drinkable. Some alcohol presence. Roasted malt taste. Black chocolate, roasted finish. A good foreign stout with plenty of character.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2007
Deep black beer with a thick tan head. Aroma is a bit earthy with some soft molasses and an unusual carbonic aroma, that I tend to associate with homebrewing. Strong roasty aroma but there is also a metallic character that is quite distracting. Flavour is quite coffeeish with heavy roasted barley and a long lingering earthy bitterness. It’s quite simple really, sort of an intro Imperial stout rather than a foreign stout as listed. Nowhere near as good as the Nigerian version.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - NOV 30, 2007
Bottiglia da 33cl comprata da Squillari senza troppe aspettative, sia per il produttore sia per l’importatore; la verso ed è scurissima con schiuma beige pieno mica chiara pure éla. Aroma non molto pronunciato ma gradevole con una punta d’alcool che invece è perfettamente occultato nel sapore, pieno caffè e nocciola con qualche nota anche di frutti rossi tutto sommato abbastanza dolce e carezzevole. Corpo per niente acquoso; molto molto molto meglio delle aspettative.

Grovlam (4187) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 15, 2008
Guinness Special Export 8 % Belgian version. Bottle. [Great two day tasting session @ Papsoe] Average beige creamy head that mostly lasted. Dark mahogany color. Fair display of lacework. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, light alcoholic sniff, toasted malt. Over the palate burned malt, bitter coffee, hint of dried fruit. Quit full bodied with a soft carbonation and light dry texture. Moderated bitter and sweet flavor. Bitter coffee and dark chocolate finish.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - APR 27, 2008
Bottle, from Noel Cuveliers, Abele. Tons of airy tan head on an iron black pour. Nose is grilled steak, a steak rubbed with black pepper and coffee. Some popcorn, raisins. Soft roast, buttered rum, salty finish. Fairly light body but with an interesting oily touch. Pretty nice FES.

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUN 25, 2008
Jet black with a beige rocky head. Strong roasted aroma. Bitter coffee flavour, fruity and dry, with a mildly unpleasant light tartness. I expected a lot from this beer, and although its a pretty decent stout, I am a little disappointed.

0,33 liter fles. Heerlijke guinness. Zoals ik me hem herinner. Heel veel smaak en dan aan het eind erg veel bitter.
