Koelschtrinker (12180) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 17, 2011
Für ein Stout ist der Antrunk eher mild, eine angenehme herb-süßlich Würzigkeit mit tiefgehender Malzigkeit stellt sich erst etwas später ein. Dieses Arome erreicht schnell seinen Intensitätshöhepunkt und verharrt dort einige Zeit. Etwas bananig süß werdend, tief malzig, dieses Arome wird mit der Zeit deutlich milder. Im Abgang leicht und angenehm schokoladig, wenig herb, das Malz wird wieder intensiver. Gelungenes Stout mit genügend Tiefgang und Ausgeglichenheit. 10/11/11/12/12/11

bhensonb (12139) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 14, 2007
Dark roasted/burnt malt aroma, and possibly chocolate and dark fruit. It’s a mix. Opaque black color with a tan head that sticks around. Thin bodied. Mild carbonation. Starts with a tarry, burnt malt flavor. Dark fruits transit, and the finish is darkly burnt, with some substantial bitter. It is truly something. The finish is toasted and bitter. It hardly gets better than this.

Thick and deep brown head sits atop this black beauty. Chocolate, fruity aroma. Sweet chocolate and roasty bitter flavor, with hints of mocha. Nice and creamy body that goes down bitter and very smoothly.
