Kobal (64) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Pours black with little head; head doesn’t linger or cling. Nose is umami and slightly salty. Body is somewhat light for the style. Taste is mild roasted nuttiness, a touch of umami saltiness with underlying notes of chocolate and a hint of banana.

Lisowczyk (48) - POLAND - AUG 15, 2014
Butelka 0,5l Piwo czarne, pod światło ładnie opalizujący rubin. Piana stosunkowo obfita, drobnoziarnista, o beżowej barwie, sztywna. Znaczy szkło i jest trwała. Wyglad to najlepsza część tego piwa. W aromacie marynowana mała, biała cebulka, przy czym nie ejst to aromat popsutego piwa. W smaku nuty palone, kawowe, posmak słonej wody i czegoś w stronę wspomnianej cebulki. Goryczka niska o palonym charakterze. Bardzo dziwne i niezbyt smaczne.

Nevalainen (81) - FINLAND - AUG 14, 2014
0,5 l can. Dark brown color, with tiny off white head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Sweet taste, lively carbonation at first but it disappears quickly and you get a bit watery feeling. Anyway, good beer, worth of drinking.

Fluxing (282) - POLAND - AUG 8, 2014
Warka 30.04.2015. Kolor czarny, minimalne refleksy pod swiatlo. Piana lekko brunatna, wysoka, ale szybko sie dziurawi i opada do cienkiej warstwy, calkiem niezle oblepia szklo. W aromacie melanoidyny, tyton, popiol, kawa, lekkie mleko i migdaly, lekki diacetyl, ogolnie aromat przyjemny, ale niestety niezbyt intensywny. W smaku bardzo podobne jak w zapachu, jednak pozbawione diacetylu, za to z lekka kwasnoscia i owocowymi estrami. Dodatkowo jest lekko slone, cos jak woda morska, moze to wlasnie te ostrygi. W odczuciu gladkie, jednak zbyt wytrawne, spodziewalem sie troche wiekszej pelni. Goryczka ledwie wyczuwalna, lekko ziolowa. Wysycenie niskie.

GuideDogSaint (255) - Epsom, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2014
500ml bottle at home 3/8/14. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma is burnt although more like a black beer. A little thin. Bitter finish.

Dåse 0,5 liter. En ganske god og behagelig duft, samt en god, let krydret smag og en dejlig blød konsistens, gør denne øl til en god oplevelse, den kommer dog ikke helt op at ringe, men ligger i den gode ende.

maxwelldeux (3551) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle. Pours a near-black color with a very small tan head on there, that disappears almost immediately. Nose is fairly roasty, with just a hint of some oystery sweetness coming through. Taste is very light and easy to drink, slightly sweet, and with a bit of roasting. All in all it’s drinkable, but nothing terribly exciting.

mzaar (1565) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUL 15, 2014
Burk. Svart med moccafärgat skum. Jisses, vilken trist stout. Närmast doftlös, aningen av rostad malt och kaffe som bäst. Tunn kropp, närmast vattnig. Kaffe och rostad malt även här. Minimal beska, lätt sötma. Sa jag trist?

Iznogud (637) - CROATIA - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle 500 ml from Vrutak, Zagreb. Pours dark brown with beige head. Light body, roasted malts, sweetish, some coffee. Too watery and lacks flavor.
