Lore (1389) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 13, 2015
dark brown colour, huge, dense, stable beige head; aroma and taste of ash, some coffee, maybe cocoa and fruity notes - correct stout - though it would be great to know, why it is named as "Double Stout"

Bamsen78 (3999) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy very dark brown with airy but stable light tan head. Clear aroma of malt and coffee, with notes of caramel and roast. Bitter, roasty flavor, with notes of coffee and malt, and touches of caramel and hints of hops. Lingering, bitter and roasty aftertaste. A well-balanced and really nice Stout.
