jsmerig (1199) - 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 (2069) - 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!

jinroh (317) - ESTONIA - DEC 2, 2013
330 ml bottle from Aeon Liquers @ Hon-Atsugi. Pours dark-dark brown with a light brown bubbly head. Aroma is fruits, cherries, chocolate, cherries again, fresh coffee. Nice. Taste has some hop bitterness and malt maltiness in the beginning, mixed with aged wine flavours - but then other taste layers come out and a fruit garden is exposed. Some dark dried fruits, cherries and raisins give way to a lingering dry and even somewhat nutty aftertaste. It lasts several minutes. It seems that foreign stouts could be one of my favourite beer styles (last week tried Guinness Foreign Extra Stout and loved it too), need to start looking for more of them.

lusikka (5927) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 29, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, cream and some berries. Flavour of roasted malts, red berries, some herbal bitterness and yeast. Some honey-like sweetness as well. Medium bodied, thin but smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Finishes sweet and slightly roasty.

NordicV (1086) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2013
Nästab helt svart öl med ett mörkbrunt skum. Doft av kaffe och choklad och lätta toner av lakrits. Torr munkänsla. Lätt rökighet, kaffe och choklad i smaken. En bra stout.

NeoHippie2 (906) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Black pour with a tan head. Big roasted malt aromas with notes of coffee and cocoa. Flavor is similar with the coffee notes coming through nicely. Smooth roasty finish. Nice beer.

Staffan47 (856) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 15, 2013
Svart tät. Fantastisk doft av kaffe och choklad. Imponerad och förväntningarna på smaken stiger. Tyvärr dock något helt annat. Torr, riktigt torr. Svagt rökig i eftersmaken med lite aska. Medium beska. Kul att testa en så pass bra öl från ett land som inte direkt är kända för sin bira.
