Bottle at home in London, just after watching Chelsea prevail over Bayern Munich in penalties. Pours dark brown-black with a moderate, thick beige foam head. Decent roast in the nose with some milky chocolate notes. Medium sweet flavor with dusty cocoa, roasted malts, light smoke, earth, dark chocolate, creamy chocolate.

Ughsmash (7101) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 8, 2011
Bottled. Poured deeper brown with a nice, creamy cap of khaki head. The aroma picked up sweeter chocolate, oats, and black patent malts, with a light dose of oxidation beneath.. soft and very approachable. The flavor found more sweet chocolate, coffee, and oats at the core.. dry-roasted, lightly bitter coffee on the tasty finish.. none of the flavor really popped, but it was sweet and enjoyable overall. Medium-ish bodied, sweet, and dry on the palate.. OK feel and flow.. Iíd drink more.

DrSilverworm (6027) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 28, 2011
12oz bottle. Black color, minimal light brown head. Carbonation a bit pronounced. Really nice roasty bitter taste. Some coffee - aroma is less impressive than the taste, but still good. Little loose spots of lace. Visible sediment on the bottom. A good stout.
