pfriesen (113) - Richmond Hill, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2009
Aroma is a medium roast black coffee, mouth feel is thick but and flavour seems like a rich cola beverage.

Finn (5176) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2009
Bottle 0,5l. Dark/black colored. An OK creamy light brown head. Modest aroma with some dark fruits. Watery flavor with some roastedness. Too "light" for a proper stout. A bit disappointing. KI=7.

Brouwser (119) - gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2009
Stout? D’apparence peut-être... Il y a la couleur noire et profonde, claire, avec un col café très joli. Arômes légers. Le goût est très effacé, pas mal aqueux. Il y a un léger arrière-goût de farine rôtie. Ça se boit bien mais ça manque de goût, surtout pour une étiquette qui dit ’Rich’...

probstblueribbon (3397) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 11, 2009
500 ml bottle from LCBO, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. 19DE08.

App.: Deep brown-black with a small tan head. Aroma: Deeper toasted malts, light coconut, dusty cocoa, light fruitiness, grapes, light dark chocolate, slightly yeasty maybe, prunes and other dried fruits. Palate: Medium+ body, fairly full effervescence of small bubbles with a few sharp ones. Flav.: More black coffee than dark chocolate, slightly ashen, slightly tangy, a bit earthy, stark and none of the sweeter aromas come through, slightly vinous; dry with a bit of bitterness.

Might be good with oysters. But I don’t like oysters, so I won’t drink too much of this!

Rune (9661) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 11, 2009
500ml bottle served chilled at Siste Indre enjoying the party music of the pretband Kleintje Pils (Speed skating Championship 2009). Fawn foamy head blanketing the glass. Dark ruby-tinged body. Plain, but weak, dark malty aroma. Taste of sweet dark malts and roasted grain. Short bitter tail. Watered and creamy in the mouth. Easy to drink (Hamar, 07.02.2009).
