Jabic (431) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - JUL 1, 2012
Ar: Light coffee, some sweet corn and caramel. Ap: Chestnut brown and clear - large light mocha head with good retention and a thick cap. T: Toffee and coffee up front - biscuit and bread notes, with some toasty and caramel flavor - mild bitterness, some char on the finish. P: Medium body with medium carbonation - finish is dry. O: Easy-drinking stout - not a "wow" beer, but tasty and satisfying.

puredelusion (104) - Lviv, UKRAINE - MAR 22, 2015
0,5 bottle. Pours dark brown colour with small beige, mostly diminishing head. Smooth aroma of coffee, caramel, chocolate, malts. Flavour is light to medium sweet, some chocolate notes. Finish is dry and short. Light body, thin texture, flat carbonation. Nothing too exciting, but drinkable.

Turtles (114) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2015
Tap @ Tennstopet. Faint sweetish aroma. Taste of brewed coffee and toffee. Quite rich flavor but not that complexed, dry aftertaste of mild bitterness and cherries.

Unde (486) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 9, 2015
Dark brown colour, beige head on top. Aroma has roasted malts, herbs, some chocolate. Taste has herbs, licorice and some sweet chocolate. Light body but the carbonation makes this appear more bold than it is. Decent light stout.

thetmaxx (765) - West Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 1, 2015
On tap at pangaea for beer week with oysters! Aroma is very English, like a English stout or brown. Nice thick head, nice lacing. Flavor is light, there is a nice bitterness to it. Some roasted flavor. Palate is thin. Overall not bad

Punkero (27) - FINLAND - FEB 28, 2015

DraftDodger (299) - - FEB 26, 2015
Copenhagen 15/9 2014. 50 cl can from Fakta. Pours very dark brown - almost black with dark brown head. Sour dense aroma with chocolate notes. Tingly mouthfeel. Taste suprisingly light. Chocolate and coffee but almost without aftertaste. Cheap but decent stout.

mikkopen (896) - Oulu, FINLAND - FEB 1, 2015
500 ml bottle. Black, with a creamy tan head. Sweetish roasted malty aroma with fruity and chocolate notes. The flavour is roasted malty, with notes of chocolate and caramel. A little thin on the palate, but otherwise not bad at all.

DrSilverworm (7798) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 27, 2015
Sample from a bottle. Dark brown, near-black color. Thin khaki head, loose bits of lace. Clear red around the edges. Milk chocolate, dark fruit, nice mild oyster brininess. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of slick lighter carbonation. Kind of chewier body for the lighter ABV. A satisfying english-style oyster stout. Good toastiness to it. Would be nice with food, I think.
