Tasting at Bruceís pad. Thanks to Bruce! Opaque dark brown beer, small pale cream coloured head. Palate is smooth and semi dry. Light fine carbonation. Creamy dark malts, not heavy. Whisper of malt roast. Good dark chocolate, if slightly powdery tasting. Trace of dark fruits. Light dry finish. Tasty and easy going stout.

Scopey (12245) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2014
Bottle thanks to Bruce. It pours near black with a decent tan head. The nose is sweet, chocolate, marshmallow, fluff, earth, doughnut, candy and fudge. The taste is bitter-sweet, toasty, rich roast, cocoa, mild acidity, vanilla, dark chocolate and a touch spice with a dry finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Good depth and nice drinkablity. Tasty.

Bottle shared in London - big thanks to Bruce. Pours rich brown with a creamy tan head. Rich chocolate in the nose, some burnt toast, burnt cereal, medium sweet flavor with background dry smoke, more toasted cereal, earth, milk chocolate, dark dried berries. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Moderately sweet on the finish with some powdery chocolate, earthy bitterness, toast, some crunchy burnt cereal. Tasty enough.

Bottle. Pours a near-black color with a moderate tan head on there. Nose is roasty with a little bit of bread to it, but little else in there. Taste is light and roasty, with a bit of toasting and bread to it. OK, but not particularly remarkable stout for me.

Marduk (6161) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUN 7, 2014
660ml bottle (shared by FatPhil, thanks). Pitch black color. Small size, bubbly brown head, stays. Massive sweetness, chocolate, waffles, cocoa, pancakes in aroma. Molten chocolate ice-cream, some stale coffee as well in taste. This is liquid chocolate ice-cream. You can pour it on your morning pancakes or waffles and eat it. Iím not a sugar-tooth, but I also donít hate sweets, but this "beer" gives me heart attack. Thatís how sweet it is. But in a way I like it. Confused.

660ml bottle (ALEhouse, Riga) (6:4:5+:3+:12=3.0)
Sweetsweet aroma, chocolatey initially, but becoming more like sweet cocoa powder later. Almost pancakes with chocolate syrup and a dob of butter. Pretty naff taste, in particular for a US porter. Just cheap supermarket chocolate ice cream. Palate full,smooth, perhaps even slick, head small but persistent anda nice tan colour. Finish does have some nice hops to it, so that canít save it. Not a bad beer, but for the US a bad porter. Later I do get the roasted marshmallowey aspects. But that sweetness is insane.

Chocolate taste, I donít really taste the graham cracker or marshmallow, maybe I got a bad bottle. Certainly not as sweet as I was expecting, I will try another bottle to see if this was just a bad one. Was disappointed.

superspak (4575) - Michigan, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Got in a trade with swingracex. 22 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 11/23/2013. Pours pitch black color with a 2 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of milk chocolate, cocoa, roast, graham cracker, dark bread, light coffee, vanilla, light cream, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with well balanced dark/roasted malt, graham cracker, and spice notes; with solid strength. Taste of milk chocolate, cocoa, roast, graham cracker, light coffee, dark bread, vanilla, light cream, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk chocolate, cocoa, roast, graham cracker, dark bread, light coffee, vanilla, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of dark/roasted malt, graham cracker, and spice flavors; with zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy, smooth, and slightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good spiced stout. All around well balanced dark/roast malt, graham cracker, and spice flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A nicely enjoyable offering.

tmongoose (2200) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 21, 2014
bomber shared amongst many. poured a dark almost opaque brown with tan head. the initial aroma is vanilla and coffee with hints of chocolate and of course plenty of roasted malts. the flavor was more of the same...a touch thin in the body but overall very good. more vanilla and chocolate on the tongue. pretty solid start to finish.

Ungstrup (34232) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2014
Draft. A black beer with a dark brown head. The aroma has notes of chocolate, marshmellow, caramel, roasted malt, and candy sugar. The flavor is sweet with notes of chocolate, marshmellow, ashes, roasted malt, and bread, leading to a dry finish.
