Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 17, 2011
Die röstigen Noten im Antrunk sind weich und wirken nur oberflächlich, beiläufig ist eine saure Nuance auszumachen, die in Kombination mit der Hefe auftritt. Das Malz wird zwar stärker, die Röstrigkeit bleibt aber gleich. Auch bleibt das Aroma weiterhin eher oberflächlich. Die vorhandenen Aromen isnd eingänglöich und gefallen,d ie gewünschte Tiefe ist noch nicht vorhanden. Zum Ende steigert sich das Bier aber, in dem es zumindest teilweise auch im Hintergrund wirkt. /9/9/9/8/9

Leighton (9848) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2013
Bottle at home in London. Many thanks to Tomer for the trade! Pours deep brown with a sturdy, dark beige foam head. Some greasy, meaty dark malts in the nose, bit of tangy cocoa, moderate roast and the bottom of a coffee pot. Light to medium sweet flavor with plenty of ashy roasted malts, chocolate, faint licorice, dark malts, well toasted sugars, light bitter burnt wood and earth. Light to medium bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Light sweetness to finish, some flinty dark malts, pleasant bittersweet cocoa, light roast, ash, mellow tobacco, low bitterness. Very drinkable stout. There are actually some really rewarding layers to this beer. Nice work!

DuffMan (6163) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 23, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown with reddish highlights and a tan head. Aroma is very interesting-- dry roasted walnuts and burnt popcorn are very prominent, some chocolate too. Chocolate and burnt malt flavours, dry peanutskin bitterness. Nice little stout; unique but in a good way.

mcberko (5368) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 27, 2013
12 oz. bottle, pours black with a small beige head. Aroma of oats, light roast, and a touch of cocoa. Flavour brings out oats, metallic notes, and light roast. Quite full-flavoured, if not a bit thin on the mouthfeel. Solid stuff.

Beershine (5196) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 14, 2011
Draft @ brewpub. Opaque black with tan head, which fades to flat. Loveliest looking of the bunch. The aroma is Nescafe. Appealingly acidic, although syrupy. Soft, low carbonation. Aromas also include tree seeds and nuts. Some acidic coffee and chocolate persist in the flavors. Not great but drinkable.
