   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2005
Bottled. A gorgeous aroma which is oily, tarry and full of lightly roasted malt. There is a sweet nail varnish type smell which is really appealing. The colour is obviously black and there starts off being a large tan coloured head, but that disappears all too quickly. The taste is full bodied, sweet roasted malts, alcohol, a bit of sweet chocolate and an oiliness. I’ve yet to have a ’Foreign Stout’ I’ve not enjoyed, and this one doesn’t buck that trend.

leaparsons (8718) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2006
Bottle. Black with a small head. Aromas are roast coffee malts with liquorice hints, mollasses and alcohol. Flavours are roast coffee with toast, mellow berry fruitiness with brown sugar, mollasses and pepper. Quite a dry stout. Pretty decent.

DocLock (8397) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2006
Thanks to Matta for this one, which boosts both my Dark Side score and my Jamaica score, mon! The pour was deep brownish, with aromas of dark malt, chocoff, and slight vegetal notes. The palate was on the light side for a stout, but the 8% stayed fairly well hidden, and the taste, which was on the sweet chocolatey side, stayed consistent.

MartinT (8396) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 29, 2005
The Lure:
Sweet molasses on morning toast are always fun. Alcohol with candy fumes are often intruging. A tease of dark chocolate without delivery is rarely satisfying.

The Festivities:
A drop of caramel in the chocolate milk. Nutty sweetness remains low-profile, as roastiness gains from the svelte body. A good offering, but apparently tired and about to turn in early.

Transcendence:
I am told that cocooning is gaining in popularity.

DSG (8175) - Tel Aviv, - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks Tom L. Dark brown to black. Nice aroma with lots of chocolate. Sweetish flavor with some roastiness, a sugary note, quite a bit of chocolate and light fruitiness. Medium-bodied. Not bad.

DuffMan (7624) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 5, 2009
Sampled at the first annual Medicine Hat Beer Festival. Clear dark brown with amber highlights. Aroma is sweet caramel and chocolate with candy-like elements that bring to mind Tootsie Rolls. Lighter palate that is thin on burnt malt and dominated by syrupy sweetness, saved (somewhat) by a dry finish. Pretty average, but a very pleasant surprise to have found a foreign stout I hadn’t tasted at the Medicine Hat Beer Fest!

Ughsmash (7327) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 30, 2006
Bottled. Poured a clear, very deep brown with garnet highlights.. medium cap of creamy beige head. Enjoyed the bitter nose of burnt dark chocolate malt, coffee, licorice, and sugarcane sweetness. Flavor was not as good... poor balance of sweetness against the burnt dark malts and alcohol.. slightly cloying at the finish... lighter body on this one, and it only flowed decently. Some dark fruit appeared with the licorice and coffee in the flavor. Man.. get that sweetness level down a tad... pick up a bit more of the nice expresso bitterness... and this could be really good.

motelpogo (7175) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 19, 2004
pours dark purple with zero head. rich and chocolatey aroma. quite sweet and thin with a little late lactic sourness. feels like a lager. one of the less interesting foreign stouts

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 6, 2004
Pours a rich milk chocolatey brown with a thick tan head. Mildly sweet chocolate aroma. Body is lightly roasted, sugary and dry with a good chocolate presence. A very nice foreign stout.

blipp (6722) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - SEP 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Dark fruits, cane sugar, lightly roasted malts, and a hint of booze. A little thin of a mouthfeel. Not that bad.
