SperkeleForce (761) - - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Pours black with small fast vanishing brown tan head. At first taste is very smooth and rounded with some harsh in it and a nice alcohol warmth. Notes of roasted malts, salty licorice, coffee, dark chocolate. Slightly too harsh at end. Needs something to balance the harsh aftertaste with. After getting used to it the harsh aftertaste mellows down a bit revealing more tasting sides of this one.

Erzengel (5494) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 26, 2015
Many thanks to rosenbergh for this bottle. The beer starts deep and intense. Lots of intense dark malt, liquorice, viscous. Nice intense bittered with a very thick and dry malty body. Hints of dried fruit, quite dry, fresh on a nice bitter malty roasted and dry aftertaste.

nihtila (1721) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 16, 2015
26.1.2014. Lähes musta, komealla ruskealla paksulla vaahdolla. Tuoksu miellyttävän paahteinen ja kahvinen. Maku kaakaosuklainen, espressoinen ja paahteinen. Humalaakin tässä on. Hyvin täyteläinen suutuntuma. Jälkimaussa kuivaa katkeroa.

fletchfighters (1252) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 28, 2015
330 ml bottle thanks to Baguio Dark brownish black color, hints of ruby. Light tan head, good retention and good lacing. Nose is roast, dark bitter chocolate, ash, tires, and coffee. Taste is more towards the coffee and dark bitter chocolate. Touches of roast and burnt rubber. One dimensional but very solid stout.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Stas. Black with a nice light brown head. Lovely aroma with lots of dark chocolate, roast, liqueur and some dark fruits. Bittersweet flavor with dark chocolate, some roast, a bit of soy sauce, a liqueur-like touch, a fruity note and a bitter finish. Quite full and rounded mouthfeel. Good.

nimbleprop (5886) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 13, 2014
12oz bottle via Summer Secret Santa 2014. Love the old school cap you rip off with a little ring. Real cool. Once it pops it pours a very murky black with loads of foamy, lacing, beige head. Nose has bit licorice notes, both black licorice and a little bit of red rope too, some distinct red grape notes, heavy roasted notes, some dried cherry, some raisin, a little rock candy, hints of rubber. Flavor has all sorts of wild things happening, mild rubber, mild pencil lead, mild squid ink, mild maple candy, some brown sugar, some rock candy, malt, licorice, a little cocoa powder, some cream soda, a little egg creme too. Full bodied, slick, lightly astringent finish. Really interesting. Very complex.

Kauge (691) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 29, 2014
Bottle as a gift from Helsinki. BB 27.01.2017. Pours a very dark brown and appears pitch black in the glass. Head is tan, thick, and drops slowly. Nose... needed more than half an hour to warm to really reveal itself - it’s heavy roasted malts and dark bittersweet chocolate, grapefruity-grassy bitter hops, and some alcoholic warmth in the end. Taste starts with smooth chocolaty sweetness and black bread crust sourish, and turns into hoppy bitter quite fast. Lovely! Body is thick with syrupy palate and medium carbonation, finish is fulfillingly bitter with an undertone of dry ashiness. A great brew!
