duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2007
Bottle@Chris_o’s. Nice stout. Nice aromas of chocolate, caramel, and mocha. Palate is lightly sweet to start, but combatted nicely in the finish with a nice long roasty malt finish, which also shows notes of dark chocolate, and also rum n’ raisin. This was very nice.

SilkTork (5248) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2007
Aug 2007 chris_o Shindig Smooth chocolate stout - soft and oh so dreamy delicious. Lingering bitterness. Enjoyable and full of character. It has the the clean, lifeless taste of a filtered beer - however, still awesome.

chriso (7416) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2007
Lovely really rich, deep brown, almost black appearance. Lots of roasty malt, coffee and chocolate in the aroma. More of the same on the palate. Smooth, but firm, mouthfeel. Quite tarry, but not heavy. Beautifully balanced and possibly the best beer of the day, despite the very strong opposition. I’d love to try this one on cask. Shame it seems to be a one-off.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 17/20
Christian (11258) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2007
Bottled. Black with a light brown, medium sized head. Weak roast aroma with toffee and caramel and licorice. The roast flavour has notes of smoke and charcoal, and a long lasting burned aftertaste. Seemed a little thin for that rich flavour.

fonefan (35635) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2007
Bottle @ Chris_o shindig 2007. Dark brown color with a small to average, fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, light brown head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, burnt, strong coffee, coal. Flavor is light to moderate sweet and bitter with a average duration. (Coal / burnt bitter). Body is medium, texture is oily, syrupy, carbonation is soft to flat.

oh6gdx (20806) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 19, 2007

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - AUG 18, 2007
Bottle at the Chris_o shindig. Deep black, nice rust colored head. Luscious caramel brown sweetness--deep and comforting in a way I associate with a good doppelbock. Flavor is an oceany iodine, soft sour chocolate, a bit of apple esters, nice chalky bitterness. A real stunner at less than 5%, and one of my most memorable beers of the tasting.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2007
Bottle. Jet black beer with a tiny chocolate head. Roasted malt aroma. Fairly sweet to taste, some roasted malt, chocolate and coffee, a bit of smoke and a touch of pop corn. One of the best beers at the tasting.

Ungstrup (29604) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2007
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with strong notes of chocolate and caramel, as well as light notes of coffee. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel and chocolate, like ice cream topping, combined with a light note of licorice. Nice, but the body is a bit thin.
