Martinus (3000) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - OCT 16, 2011
Creamy black colour (opaque is the word I believe), small cream head. Malty aroma, chocolate, roasted malts, coffee. Rather dry and creamy, light carbonation. Flavour quite bitter chocolate, vanilla, rather light, where are the roasted malts so prominent in the aroma?
(Draught -gravity- @ Borefts ’11)

Sampled at Borefts Beer Festival @ De Molen, Bodegraven. Pitch black, opaque color. Small off-white head. Smell coffee, roasty, bitter, chocolate. Taste coffee, not much roastyness, bitter and chocolate. Low carbonation, low body.

Draft @ Borefts Festival 2011, Bodegraven NL. Pitch black, opague with a small, chunky off-white head. Smells chocolate, roasty and vanilla. Tastes chocolate, coffee, roasty, vanilla, reminds me of guinness, but this has more taste. No carbo, full body.

Dedollewaitor (14085) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2011

GothGargoyle (1364) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 25, 2011
On tap @ Borefts 2011. Dark cloudy brown with no head. Aroma is chocolate pudding with a subtle hint of coffee. Very thin on the palate with very little flavour. Some taste of chocolate and mocha. Somewhat disappointing.

suprchunk (2313) - Crestview, Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2011
The brewery was calling this a stout at the fest. And it was on cask. Dark brown, can see right through it. Not very stoutish. Flat, no head, no lacing. Roasted aroma with cabbage and cream corn. Tastes the same. Not very good.

Aniela (2462) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 6, 2011

FatPhil (9492) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 21, 2011
Cask (GBBF2011, Wed)
Looks great - dark and with a spongy beige head. Choco aroma, but more roast grain than artificially added chocolate. Massive roasty burnt taste, just shy of ashiness. Such a scrummy stout. Finish is a touch burnt and bitter.

markas101 (1874) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 18, 2011
Cask, The Marble Arch. Pure roasted chocolate aroma. Velvety and smooth. Medium bitterness on the finish.

BeerCast_Rich (1891) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 12, 2011
[500ml bottle, The Bottle, York] Deep blackish brown pour with a decent white head. Very inviting aromas of dark chocolate malt and coffee, plenty of ashy, roasted malt aromas. More coffee on the taste, although the chocolate comes on at the end. Very well balanced, it’s a smooth drinker – as many Marble beers are – the finish is particularly good. Some bitterness in there from the coffee, but a sweet, lasting creaminess. Very nice stuff [11082011]
