superspak (2778) - Michigan, USA - MAY 15, 2013
22 ounce bottle into snifter, no bottle dating. Pours pitch black color with a 1 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big dark chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toast, char, floral, pine, and roasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of roasted malt notes with moderate hops. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, caramel, toast, char, floral, light pine, and roasted earthiness. Moderate floral bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, coffee, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, char, floral, pine, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic balance and complexity of roasted malt flavors; with nice hop bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation medium-full body; with a creamy, chalky, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic Export stout! All around great balance and complexity of roasted malt flavors with moderate hops; and very smooth to sip on. A highly enjoyable offering.

22 oz. bottle- Pours black with a nice creamy tan one finger head that reduces to a blanket. Aroma is chocolatey, roasted malts, coffee, all the trademarks you want in the style. The taste is creamy, chocolate and coffee again, good amount of hops imparting a dryness and mild bitterness, robust and stout like. Good, I always enjoy a good Foreign Stout and this is one.

GIJOE (674) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Pours dark black with a thick, frothy, cappuccino colored head that stays for quite a while. Not much aroma on this one. Faint hint of baked bread and molasses. A little earthy aroma and some chocolate and coffee notes come through while drinking it. Taste is malty sweetness up front with a wisp of grassy bitterness in the end. Slightly thin mouthfeel for me, but overall still a nice beer.

wchesser (1220) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Bottle with about a year of age on it. Nose of dark roast espresso with dried prunes and some soy. Very dark with fast fading head. Slightly viscous and oily. Taste follows nose. A big chewy palate. A step above your basic stout in complexity. Great with some slow braised carnitas.

DuffMan (6978) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 26, 2013
Bottle, with different label art than pictured here. Near black in colour, with a thick brown head. Lots of lovely roast character here, espresso and bitter chocolate, but with an acidity that hints at dark cherries in the finish that balances it out perfectly. Very tasty.
