popery (1627) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 29, 2011
Dark chocolate and cola are strong in the aroma. It also smells sweet and toasty, like fresh bread and caramel. Unfortunately, it’s all a tad weak. The taste is marred by the body which is fairly thin. It’s kinda fizzy and washed out. Fairly sweet with roast and mineral hop bitterness in the finish. A touch of booze throughout. Pours about the color of black coffee with a dissipating beige head. Decent but nothing special.

Opague black colour. Smells roasty, coffee, chocolate and some vanilla. Taste is quite sugary for a stout but okay.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 15, 2011
From bottle @CBF ’11. Dark brown with a ruby shade. Low latte head. Black chocolate and well roasted dark malts on the nose. Taste is more than medium sweet. Roasted and chocolatey, with notes of rye bread and coffee ground. Very easy on the hops, not enough bittering to balance the sweetness. Medium body. Oily texture. Finishes on the sweet side.

Benzai (9915) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2011
Opaque black color, small beige head. Smell coffee, chocolate, little vanilla. Taste is nice but a little sweet for a stout in my opinion. Very nice carbonation, medium to full body.

deyholla (7970) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 16, 2011
Bottle thanks to Kan! Pours black with a brown head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma is full of roasted malts with a good amount of coffee and just a bit of backing dark grains. Aroma is full of roasted malts with a growing coffee note and just a bit of underlying dark chocolate as well as a hint of anise.
