TET (1608) - FINLAND - JAN 3, 2014
A black beer with a beautiful, dense and mocca head. Balanced nose, lots of roastiness combined to sweet berries, strawberries and coffee. Taste is strongly roasted, lots of coffee and sweetness of burned sugar. The end is dryer with pleasant coffee, now more balanced sweetness. Only medium bodied that is too thin, unfortunately. Better when the beer is warmer. This is tastefull beer, simple, roastiness, coffee and sweetness.

emartell (240) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - DEC 30, 2013
Aroma discreto pero agradable. Se fistinguen notas a cebada tostada, malta caramelizada, chocolate, y ligeramente café y vainilla. En cuanto a su apariencia, color profundamente obscuro, practicamente negro, cuerpo medio, carbonatacion nula, corona de espuma ligera de color caoba y de baja retención. En boca sumamente suave, cremosa, bien equilibrada. Al paladar una cerveza fácil de tomar, pero a la vez muy bien equilibrada! En primera instancia destaca su cremosidad, posteriormente una muy ligera nota acida se percibe dando paso a sabores a café, cebada tostada y chocolate. En ningun momento se perciben sus 8 grados de alcohol. En resumen una cerveza muy agradable y fácil de tomar, pero a la vez con caracter y delicioso sabor.

StevieT (571) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 26, 2013
Mild caramel aroma, thin tan head, dark and viscous. Deep rich roasted malt flavours, strong but surprisingly easy to drink for such a bold beer, sessionable for sure.

jsmerig (1231) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Pours a deep ruby red/black with a dark tan head. Aroma of slightly roasted syrup mixed with a doughy scent. Taste is sweet and a little lighter than expected. Very drinkable with a chocolate coffee finish. Mouthfeel was a bit thinner than expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

So well balanced, it feels mild, while it actually is strong. Delicious stout.

Grima (2089) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - DEC 11, 2013
Bottle from Auchan Market, Luxembourg City!
Pours deep black with thick, dark brown head. Smells strong roasted malty, slight caramelly with coffee and chocolate. Starts with a strong malt base, lots of licorice, roasted malts, strong coffee notes and some chocolate. The middle part is more sweet, sugary, with licorice, roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. Goes into a coffee’ish finish with chocolate, licorice, dark fruits and a slight yeast note! Surprisingly good one!
