Maria (10149) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 22, 2010
Courtesy of After4ever, thanks Tom. Itís pitchblack with a light-brown, creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, slightly sweet coffee and hints of licorice. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of roasted malt, coffee, light licorice and caramel, and the finish has a light, dry bitterness. Itís a nice stout with a lot of flavour even if the ABV is relatively low.

22 oz bomber from Capital Market, Salem. Deepest,deepest black, black, black..wonderful frothy tan head. A thing of beauty art in a glass. Lovelly aromas, of fresh black french roast coffee, chocolate cakes,brazil nuts and cream. Taste much the same as the aroma but even more fresh dark gorgeous coffee, complex roasty ,toasty flavours assault the tongue..too many to define yet blening perfectly into a heavenly elixir. Wonderful full mouthfeel. Just a gorgeous stout..best I have had for ages

Thanks sebletitje for the share. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Nose is licorice, roast, earth, coffee, and bitterness. Flavor is similar with a roasty bitterness and a sweet, earthy coffee bringing up the rear. Medium bodied and enjoyable overall.

BA trade and yet another amazing surprise. This is light and loaded with goodness. pours dark brown, tan/mocha head. Aroma, lots of malts; chocolate, roast, coffee. Flavors, tons of chocolate goodness, from nice cocoa nibs to a mesh of dark chocolate, hints of roast and coffee. Although the palate is light it packs a nice punch of chocolate malts. Mild touch of hop spices and hints of bitterness. Delicious.

Bottle courtesy of bu11zeye. Pours black with a light brown head. The aroma is strong coffee with some roasted malt. The flavor is strong coffee with some bitterness as well as some chocolate. You also get some nutty characteristics. Medium mouthfeel but a little more watery than I expected. Very drinkable. Great beer.

madbrewer1 (7) - USA - JAN 25, 2010 does not count
Aroma is pleasing yet not very strong primarily chocolate,coffeeand other malt aromas. Appearance is Very dark black with light brown head that faded withing a couple of minutes. Taste is smooth bitterness of roasted grains and coffee with medium body, Hop bitterness compliments the grain and coffee well without taking over. Not very exciting on the palate the flavors kind of flow and then are gone I would expect more complexity from "7 grain". This is a really good tasting beer that I think is better on the whole than picking apart each component. I consider it an above average stout that I did enjoy.
