ChainGangGuy (4366) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Appearance: Pours a very dark brown body with an inch of churned, beige foam.

Smell: Dark malty accents smelling of carob, light chocolate, blackened toast, scorched cream and licorice.

Taste: Toasty, roasty in the fore with some slight carob, less-than-sweet chocolate and very minor licorice. Minimal dark fruitiness. A chary bitterness creeps in at the midpoint. Drying with a persistent dark maltiness which slowly lingers on the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel overall.

Overall: While it won’t knock your socks off with a myriad of complexities, it’s amply flavorful and an ease to drink at 5.5% ABV.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2014 0.33L bottle. Pour black with a frothy tan head that lingers. Aromas of chocolate, cream / lactose, roasted malt. Flavor is almost immediately to roasted malt bitterness with little sweetness. Some hints of anice and and coffee, with a subtle malt sweetness at the end. Finishes with a long, dry, bitter linger. Medium-light body with a thin mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Overall, really not a very pleasant stout. Unidimensional roasted malt, and not much else.

Nitro cask @ De Arendsnest. Aroma has toffee typical to English ales. Also some hay and hints of licorice. Flavour has English toffee, licorice and some ashy tones. Smooth and somewhat creamy palate. Feels slightly watery on some sips. Like a light version of Fuller’s London Porter.

androman (360) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 5, 2014
33cl bottle @ home from Melger’s, Haarlem. Dark brown color, large rocky brownish mostly lasting excellent lacing head. Aroma roasted malt, caramel, dark coffee, dark chocolate, light herbs, light leather. Taste heavy bitterness, hint of salt and umami. Medium to full body, slick texture, soft carbonation, very long lasting roasty bitter finish. Simple and delicious beer, not very unique but I like it.

33cl bottle from Secret Santa 2014. Dark brown with a light brown head that mostly disappears. Light roasted malt with hints of vanilla wafers, coffee, milk chocolate and some caramel. Mild body and carbonation, slightly bitter, so so.

Idiosynkrasie (3741) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 29, 2014
330ml bottle [as "Hans Klaver", part of the Bekenesserkerk series]. Darkest brown colour with thick, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white to beige head. Dark malty aroma with an odd, somehow perfumed nuttily touch, some green wood. Taste is initially dry dark malty, minimally roasty, later slightly fruity with subtle sweetness, hints of red berries and raisins, a nuttily touch, hazelnut pellicle, green wood; dry finish, slightly prickling carbonation.

33cl bottle. Aroma reminds me of Guinness. Deep black colour with a white top. Taste is dry, somewhat metallic. Quite a good stout.

VincentKabel (197) - Haarlem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2014
Dark black beer with a very weak off-white head. Roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate are the flavours that dominate this beer (as a stout should be). A dry aftertaste wher a note of dark fruits can be recognised. Pretty good beer, for a stout.

Dark black beer with beige head. Foam very weak with coarse structure. Aroma rather thin. Taste of dark chocolate and coffee. In the background dark fruit and a real stout bitterness.
