MGantzel (203) - Aalborg, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2016
Denne stout har et mørkt udseende med et tykt hvidt skum. Øllen har både en maltet og kaffe aroma og smager af chokolade, malt og med noter af lidt sødlig karamel og kaffe. Cremet fornemmelse. Lav karbonering.

DerGantzel (309) - Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2016
Aroma of malt, chocolate, coffee and liquirice. Dark with a tasty white long lasting foam. Medium sweetness and light-medium bitterness. Soft carbonation, medium-full body, creamy and a bit watery texture. Great stout!

Puszka. Ciemno brazowe o bezowej kremowej pianie. Aromat karmelu kawy lukrecji. W smaku bardzo wodniste slodkawe karmel kawa i ziemisty posmak na finiszu.

hauxe (415) - Butzbach, GERMANY - JAN 21, 2016
Rated from old notes. From a can. Pours black and creamy into the glass. Light chocolate taste. Light bodied and rathery watery. Unlike many stouts, this one can be quaffed in quantity. Drank many of these back in the day. Passable.

Can on nitro. Black with thick smooth head. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate, roasted malt, and dirt. Very watery. A little vanilla and dark roasted coffee on finish. The palate is thin and watery. Good looking, but taste and texture are lacking.

Nurmis (387) - Oulu, FINLAND - JAN 4, 2016
500ml can from supermarket. Pours with a thick creamy thick head, black/dark brown colour. Aroma is coffee, chocolate.. slight hoppy sidetaste. Carbonation could be better, but the texture otherwise is excellent.
