MichaelAwesome (6008) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 15, 2014
Dickes, klassisches Stout mit einem ordentlichen Kracher an dunkler Schokolade, Kaffee und Röstmalzen zum Schluss. Weiterhin nicht mein Stil, daher schwer, gut zu finden. Dass jedoch was hintersteckt, ist jederzeit zu schmecken.

EithCubes (5304) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Bottled on 16.7.2013. Nose of heavy coffee and rich dark chocolate, occasionally fruity bursts of plum, a smooth and sultry appetizer! Pours deep dark brown-black with a dark brown head. Taste very, very dry, some light burned notes under waves of lovely, gentle dark roast; there’s some chocolate and medium-heavy coffee, but the whole thing is utterly velveteen and huggable. Low bitterness, clean, soft full body with low carbonation. This is the best of their three I’ve had, by far.

Beershine (5218) - 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.
