darioklc (511) - Karlovac, CROATIA - MAR 28, 2014
Black color , with a creamy cappuccino white-brown head. Very light with some bitter notes. Not a really bad beer - but overall it has a lack of character and taste.

wimpyjoe (3750) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2014
Bottle. Almost black with a fast disappearing head. It’s a very dry and tasteless brew with a small sweetness rather than any roasted malts. Fizzes a little in the palate.

JorgeLee (1178) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2014
Keg, in the Long Room at Lord’s with Paul. Darkish coke colour, thin foam, off white. Served a bit cold to taste of much. Smooth, in that marketing man’s dream sort of way, when a better word might be bland. Slightly silky mouth feel, not much roasty or hoppy. Bit disappointing really.

Mr_Pink_152 (640) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2014
500ml bootle from Asda. Looks nice, head is tan that last. Waterish taste for an abv of 4,5%. Apron a is mild malt. Mild malty aroma.

Ambro206 (108) - ITALY - MAR 20, 2014
Una stout discreta, bilanciatissima. Non sgarra di una virgola ma non entusiasma. Sapore sempre presente dal primo impatto fino al finale giustamente amaricato. Sentori di cioccolato e liquerizia puliti in bocca. Manca un po’ nell’aspetto.

sinte (329) - Udine, ITALY - MAR 12, 2014
Bottle 0.5L. Dark brown body with a large, frothy, tan head, mostly lasting with a fair lacing. Moderate-to-heavy malty aroma (roasted) with notes of coffee and light chocolate. Moderate-to-heavy bitter flavour with moderate sweetness; bitter aftertaste. Light-to-medium body with oily texture; flat-to-soft carbonation.

Beerhunter111 (7150) - Hasborn, GERMANY - MAR 5, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein schwarzes Bier mit schöner bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Geruch röstmalzig, Schokolade. Geschmack sehr röstmalzig, angenehm cremig, schokoladig, erdig.

gegwilson (1026) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2014
Keg in the Manifold Hotel, Derbyshire. Black with a tan head. Pretty bland for a stout. Served over cold so the flavours were harder to detect too. Some coffee and burnt toast. OK.

GraveAtSea (139) - Lublin, POLAND - FEB 24, 2014
Almost black, ruby color with small, creamy head. Aroma: dark malts, roasted malts, coffee, grain coffee, some chocolate. Taste is watery. Semi dry, medium bitterness. Notes of caramel, smooth grain coffee, dark malts, roasted malts, chocolate. Low body with medium carbonation. I expected more but it’s good session beer.
