Fatehunter's rating

Fatehunter (1092) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Formed two fingers of tan head on a pitch black body. Looks great. Well, it smells like a campfire: chocolate, marshmallows and coffee. Impressive. The taste is roasted malt, a touch of chocolate and coffee, and a mild bitterness at the end. It’s complex. The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation and a heavier body. Here’s a well put together ale.

Full black body, flat. Medium density. Smells like cocoa, brown sugar, chocolate. Taste of tiramisu, sugar candy, some marshmallows. Medium aftertaste.

gunnar (4868) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 12, 2014
Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours nearly black with a tiny white head. Strong chocolate aroma, overwhelming. Taste is better than expected, more light roasty malty notes, with a very good chocolaty feel to it, lingering moderate sweet, nice.

Holmen2 (409) - NORWAY - APR 12, 2014
Very dark brown. Beige head. Aroma of chocolate spread, vanilla, chocolate spread, marshmallows and chocolate spread. Similar taste and aftertaste. Well balanced with bitterness. Not too sweet and surprisingly drinkable. Rather one-dimensional.

Sigmund (4817) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 12, 2014
Shared bottle at local tasting. Black colour, tan head. Strong and lovely aroma of milk chocolate, vanilla, cookies and marshmallows. The flavour is not as sweet as I feared, but the chocolate and vanilla notes are there. Moderate hops in the finish.

Holmen1 (2003) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 12, 2014
Flaske på hytta til Sigmund april-14: flott skum og en overveldende duft av smørbart sjokoladepålegg, vanilje og litt kaffe. Herlig balansert smak, sjokoladesødmen tar ikke overhånd. Lett å dele med gode venner, trenger slett ikke et leirbål for å nyte denne. Lekkerbisken.

Bomber, huge thanks to jmgreenuk! Pitch black beer with a nice beige head. Chocolate and vanilla aroma, nuts, cream, caramel, toffee, fruity notes. Vanilla flavor, chocolate, caramel, creamy, hazelnuts, licorice. Pretty sweet but still drinkable.

Zarf (3) - Maryland, USA - MAR 22, 2014 does not count
Clean, chocolately flavors predominate, with sweeter notes adding to the overall profile.

tgncc (2664) - Bellmore, New York, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Big notes of Bosco upfront on the nose, marshmallow, pine. Deep black appearance, light tan head. The flavor is roasty, graham, bitter chocolate, pine. The finish is pine, roast. Medium in body. Nicely done. I think it might have benefit from a little more body, and strength, but still good.

DSG (5022) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Neiman’s place. Thanks Neiman. Black with a light brown head. Great aroma full of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee and some vanilla. Sweetish flavor with lots of chocolate, a bit of vanilla and a more roasty finish with a bit of coffee and bitterness. Medium-bodied, rounded mouthfeel. A really good hearty stout.

The aroma and look of this beer saves this beer. A deep, pitch black stout, big frothy mocha head- just how you’d like a stout to look. Pretty thick body, carbonation is nice. When I poured this beer I got really excited because it smells ridiculous! Chocolate, vanilla, marshmallow just pours of this thing. Unfortunately the flavor doesn’t match. Grainy malts, faint cocoa, a little smoke, vanilla. This would have been a higher rating, but then this thing goes straight metallic on the finish. No bueno. Worth trying, maybe I got a bad bottle.
