DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2008
Bottle due to ladddy chap cgarvie’s pier’s party shack banter. Aroma is roasty and coco malt, hints of smoked malt too. Taste is far more chocolatly, with alot oif roasty bitterness thpough balanced, alright but not me.

Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - JAN 21, 2008
Sweet chocolate and some roastyness with an odd vegital quality, very porterish in the nose. Drys out nicely in the mouth with some green hop action, coffee roastyness and cool deep cocoa. Finishes peculiarly bitter but in a balanced way, with grass and dark chocolate. Pleasantly weird.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Bottle: Black, tan head, nose of light roast, some vegetal coffee and a caramel, maybe molasses. The flavor is sweet and creamy, nice mocha and tart coffee. Decent chocolate extract notes. Decent stout.

BuckeyeBoy (2453) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 3, 2007
Bottle Pours out almost black topped with a small tan head. A nice aroma of roast malt and coffee. A nice light bitter end. A little sweetness and some more malt. Thanks BückDich

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 2, 2006
330 mL bottle: black body with a full and very generous, large bubbled dark pinkish-tan froth. Barky, dusty chocolate aroma with roasted cherry skins and light alcohol. Smooth, lactic palate with loads of roastiness and black currants and sweet milk chocolate truffles. A very nice and slightly complex flavour, well done! Thanks a bunch IslandHaole!

TimE (2977) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 25, 2005
Pitch black color. Light brown head. Toffee, caramel, nuts hide under the big dark chocolate nose. Nutty sweet, malty mouth that comes across like pouring just the right amount of frangelico into cold coffee. Sweet malty finish. Nice. First stout I would say that is specifically appropriate for Christmas.

AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - NOV 13, 2005
Bottle. Black opaque, tan head. Well-defined cherries, slight estery. Have I lost my taste for stouts after getting spoiled by lambics and Belgians? Nice sweet finish; got better as it warmed up. Hints of coffee, I might classify this as a sweet stout (that doesn’t make a lot of sense now that I look at it, but hey, this was the part of the night where the rating sheet gets sloppy)

Hildigöltur (5104) - Kĝbenhavn, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2005
Bottled. Almost black coloured. Loads of chocolate and dark fruits in the aroma and in the flavour. Roasty finish.

Oakes (11770) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 23, 2005
Almost black. Aroma is rich and fruity - chocolate covered cherries, new suede jackets and a Luang Prabang-style coffee. Flavour is sweet, mocha-like, with only a light fruitiness. Heavy body, very smooth. Fairly simple, but tasty stuff.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2005
Nearly black with red hints. Creamy bubbly beige head. Powerfull aroma of roasted coffebeans, dark chocolate and vanilla. Strong but smooth roasted flavour of coffee, toffee and salt. Long finish of roasted malts. Quite powerfull. Good stout!
