shoulderbroken (1987) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 12, 2013
Bottle at the brewery. Getting messed up by now, so ratings are falling to pieces. Aroma roasty, bit choc, bit of smoke, meaty. Taste smoky and roasty. Bit of creaminess too. Pretty good. Many spelling mistakes to correct in my notes. I needed a break at this stage.

downender (6200) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2013
Bottle from the brewery. Almost black with a slight, off-white head. Big chocolate and charred malt aroma. Slightly prickly mouth feel, with some oiliness, before more chocolate, roasted malts and a hoppy, dryish finish. Excellent..

olio (6115) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2013
33 cl bottle. Bottled on 28.05.2013. BBE 28.05.2014.
Pours pitch black color with a small beige head. Aroma is quite dry with roasted malts, chocolate and cocoa. Some dry dark fruits and caramel appear also. Quite dry cocoa-dominant flavor as well, dry dark chocolate, toasted dark malts and some ashy notes. Faint caramel and vanilla notes. Dry malty and a bit burnt palate with a short dry finish. Nice and refined dessert stout.

Scopey (6661) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2013
Bottle picked up at Partizan. It pours very dark brown with a medium light tan head. The nose is roasted malt, earth, toast, dark chocolate, dark fruit and coffee. The taste is roasty, chocolate, burnt caramel, earth, touch of alcohol, decent bitterness, light ash, tangy dark fruit, berry and some coffee with a dry roasted finish. Medium+ body and moderate carbonation. Big in the flavour department, yet smooth and very drinkable. Great stuff.

Opaque dark brown beer, good tan head. Palate is smooth and slightly soft. Semi dry with fine carbonation. Rich dark malt, medium roast bitterness. A little balancing malt cream. Good espresso coffee. Trace of cereal. Mellow hops provide a little bitterness and a touch of citrus. Semi dry finish with a roast and coffee bitter linger. Good stout but definitely in the shadow of it’s big brother.

Theydon_Bois (8114) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle at home, thanks to Leighton for picking this up for me, 20/07/13. Mid black with a good sized tan head that dissipates but stays for the party as an overall covering. Nose is roast malts, chocolate biscuits, dark fruit tang, light perfume, hoppy backnotes. Taste comprises bitter roast malts, chocolate pud, dairy milk, dark fruits, good hop presence, light mineral bite, earthy, ashen. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, roasty hoppy finish. Nice stuff!

Bottle from Market Row Wines, Brixton. Colour is opaque black, off white to tan bubbly head. Nose is roasted malt, dark chocolate, black coffee. Lots of roasted malt and coffee. Taste is very deep roasted malt, black expresso coffee. Simple but strong flavoured dry stout. Medium to full bodied.

lusikka (6184) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a pitch black colour with an off-white creamy head. Aroma of strong roasted malts, chocolate biscuit, grass and licorice. Flavour is very rich with strong roasted malts, mildly burnt bread, biscuit, mudcake, licorice, big grassy and earthy bitterness and hay. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel and a rich, malty, bitter, mudcake finish. Pretty much as good as their FES. Great stuff once again. Cheers, Partizan.
