rosenbergh (6087) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 6, 2013
330 ml bottle. BB 23/08/14. Courtesy of VastActiv. Black colour with a small tan head. Roasted malt, coffee, bitterness, ash and mild milky sweetness in the aroma. The flavour is very burned malt, ash, burned coffee and some hops. Too burned and too much coffee for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

downender (5912) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2013 On gravity at the winter beer festival, the Three Tuns, Bristol 23/2/2013. Near black with a tight, off-white head. Big, bitter chocolate, smooth roasted grains, a touch of dark fruit and pleasantly dry finish. Ridiculously easy drinking, a half pint easily went down and was immediately followed by a full one. My beer of the festival. Excellent all round.

Scopey (5522) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2012
Cask at the 13th Egham Beer Fest. It pours near black with a small light tan head. The nose is charcoal, roasted malt, rich coffee, nut and faint smoke. The taste is roasted malt, earth, nut, toast, charcoal, coffee, bitter chocolate, faint sourness, dark fruit and caramel with a dry, bitter finish. Medium-full body, soft carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Tasty and well balanced. Pretty delicious!

lusikka (5341) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 16, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with a beigeish head, which collapses quickly. Rather intensive aroma of chocolate chip cookeis, roasted malts and coffee. Rich flavour of strong roasted malts, chocolate chip cookies, burnt bread, coffee and strong bitterness. Some mellow fruitiness as well. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Mouth-drying finish of roasted malts and strong bitterness. Excellent.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks tomer. As "London Brewers Alliance Collaboration London Stout". Black with a nice tan head.

laiti (4945) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 16, 2013
33 cl bottle @ olio. Bottled 23.08.2012, BBE 23.08.2014
Aroma has cocoa, some roasted notes, semi‐dark chocolate and coffee. Flavour has ash, cocoa, some coffee, salty licorice and semi‐dark chocolate. Could be more rich of course. But then this would be an imperial stout.
