Sigmund (4949) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 5, 2011
22 fl. oz. bottle, as Left Coast’s Black Magic Stout, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 6.7%. Pitch black colour, big to moderate brown head. The aroma has the expected notes of coffee and dark chocolate, but also fruity and vinous notes. The flavour has strong roasty notes, coffee and dark chocolate again, but also some fruity notes in the background. Nice one.

theOptimator (283) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 25, 2011
Aroma is licorice, dark roast, coffee, chocolate, peaty/biscuit. Appearance is dark brown almost black with small dark tan head. Taste is peat roasty forward. Coffee, chocolate, licorice, hint of smoke. Bit of sourness finished off. Very malty. Palate is medium+. Chocolate and biscuit/peat linger. Overall a good foreign/sweet stout. Could use a bit more hops IMO and more complexity. Not even in the same league as Guinness Foreign Extra Stout as the description suggests.

ClubGonzo (3923) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 28, 2011
Bottle shared with Palme @ Henrik, Bergen. Pours a black body with small, off-white head which dies rather quickly. Nose is lactic sourness and some dry burnt tones. Taste is burnt toast and roasted malts, with hints of coffee. A bit short on flavor, just like the style it seeks to emulate. OK, but not really my thing.

Palme (3237) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 27, 2011
0.65l bottle @ Henrik, Bergen shared with ClubGonzo. Pours a black body with a fading kaki head. Aromatically there is a sour woody vinegarish note, leather and roasted malts. Low carbonation and medium-bodied. Flavors are of course dominated by roasted malts with notes of paper, salty liquorish and tar. Also hints of chocolate and cocoa. Got better and better when it got some temperature and in the end it got quite roasty with a milky mouthfeeling and perhaps a sourish twist. However, unfortunately this falls a bit through for me and it’s close but no cigar.

Bottle from Bier Koning. Black with puffy tan head. Sweet dark chocolate nose. Taste of chocolate, malts, sweet. But too watery in my opinion.
