1FastSTi (3344) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Pours to a deep filtered brown body with a super tall meringue like tan head. Very rocky and lots of delicate lacing. The aroma is dry with a light tangy roasted black malts. The flavor is dry roasted black patent with a subtle earthy tang and vanilla like character. Palate is dry and roasty. Goes down smooth.

Drake (10703) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Jay at Beer Run and shared at the 17th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering, 1/28/12. Pours a hazy copper color with a large frothy head. Decent head retention. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, tart and dusty notes and cherries. The taste is roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and a chalky finish. Medium bodied, very high carbonation. Nice beer.

thegreenrooster (3570) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 24, 2011
Pour is a black with a large tan head. Aroma is an ok roasted malt/ coffee combo. Flavor is is about the same. Some roasted malt and coffee with a finishing sourness. It’s ok I guess and I’ve had worse.

northropfrye (2817) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 22, 2011
Bottle sampled. Aroma is vinous, kinda sour. Dark brown colour with large brown bubbles. Taste is bitter coffee, kinda smokey, watery. Okay, but I was disappointed with this one.

dreamflower (696) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 22, 2011
Bottle shared with northropfrye. Beautiful thick foamy head contrasts with the deep dark colour. Smells of smokey coffee with a tart tinge to it. A little bitter.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Pours black with a foamy mocha head. Notes of dark fruit, phenolic spice, cherry, lightly tart like a lambic, hints of chocolate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Scrapersnbeer (1507) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 4, 2011
A nice looking stout with a sweet chocolate and coffee aroma. Burnt malt flavor with some other grains detectable, just a hint of wheat even. Bitter hop presence balances this decently. Heavy head which settles down to a quarter inch that remains present until the beer is consumed. Bottle is black for US market with a strange painting on the label, probably per order of the importer, the intrepid Shelton Brothers.

adnielsen (10138) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 10, 2011
Bottle @ home. Deep black appearance with a big dark brown head. Roasty, slightly bitter, chocolate malty nose. Pretty bitter, quite roasty, dark burnt, chocolate malty flavor. Bitter, roasty finish.

eczematic (1322) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - JUL 5, 2011
A passable Irish stout, translucent dark brown, crappy head sadly, but good bitter clash between black and green in flavour, some diacetyl helping in an Irish kind of way. some burnt bitterness. not bad, but thin and watery, and bad head retention, as with all Spanish micros I’ve had.
