hohops (481) - Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2014
Appearance is oil, pitch black, a tan foamy covering, no light escaping at all. Aroma- fudgy chocolate, dark chocolate, cocoa, black coffee, leather, vanilla, dark malts. Smells luscious. Taste- amazing. Chocolate fudge cake, bitter, dark chocolate, rich coffee, vanilla undertones, burnt toast spread with toffee, oaty chocolate biscuit, molasses, charcoal, sticky, silky mouthfeel, bitter, clinging, slightly hoppy finish. Like biting into a booze-soaked piece of chocolate fudge with espresso drizzled over it. Superb stout.

ABT_S54 (256) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2014
600cl bottle shared in a snifter. Pours black with a very short lived tan head. Aroma is rich toasted malt, milk chocolate and sweetness with an almost bourbon barrel aged richness. Taste is more of the same with an almost buttery/creamy mouthfeel which I assume is imparted by the oatmeal and continues the theme of smooth rich flavours. A surprising level of bitterness given the sweet and creamy initial taste but overall quite well balanced.

Westmeister (2016) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Long awaited a taste of this one but I never pulled the trigger due to price. My store finally got it in for a reasonable price. Thick dark pour with medium dark brown head. Smell is roast, some dark fruits, hint of booze, cocoa Taste is roast, coffee, bits of char, dark chocolate, minor booze. Great texture and creamy mouthfeel. Delicious
