imdownthepub (9672) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2013
Bottled, 330ml from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Black with tan head. What a wonderful aroma on opening, rich dark chocolate and roasty malts. Sleek pour, quite big on the palate with coffee husk and liquorice, very darkly roasted malt. A bobby dazzler.

jamestulloch (1060) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 23, 2013
Aroma: Burnt toast, charcoal, dark chocolate, liquorice, plum and salted caramel.

Appearance: Black body with a thin beige head. Light lacing marks.

Taste: Similar to the aroma but with more coffee and a blackcurrant finish. Very bitter and roasted with virtually no hint of the high alcohol content.

Palate: Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft carbonation prickle.

Overall: A lovely, roasted Foreign Stout. This bottle was 8.7% ABV.

larsga (5967) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 23, 2013
Small beige head quickly disappears. Opaque black body. Roasty licorice aroma with spicy milky earthy notes. Dry-sweet chocolatey licorice and wood taste with earthy spicy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, smooth mouthfeel. Dryish chocolatey spicy wooden aftertaste with roasted rice and grain notes. Lovely, delicate, vivid, highly drinkable. (0.33l bottle, from House of Trembling Madness, York.)

FatPhil (8632) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 21, 2013
330ml bottle - shared by VastActiv - thanks!
Very nice smooth soft coffee aroma. A bit messy in the taste. Sticky and mashy. Too burnt. Nice espresso finish, though. One dimensional, and as such quite uninteresting. Some ashiness later.

330 ml bottle. G 000-001. Bottled on 29/11/2012. BB 29/11/2015. Courtesy of VastActiv. Ta!
Pitch black colour with a tiny dark tan head. Roasted malt, coffee and mild hoppy bitterness in the aroma. Very roasted malty flavour with coffee. There’s no hoppiness in the flavour. Very dark and roasted. Too roasted for me.

lusikka (5376) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 11, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a pitch black colour with a beige foamy head. Aroma of roasted malts, leather, biscuit and chocolate. Flavour is really rich with roasted malts, nuts, biscuit, strong bitterness, coal, pepper and ash. Mellow honey-like sweetness as well. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and a long, rich, dry, warming, lingering bitter, tad sweet finish. Balance is as good as it gets. Great stuff!

Rune (7361) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2013
330ml bottle from Sourced Market, St Pancras. Shared with Stefan. Creamy, tan-coloured head. Opaque, dark coloured body with a deep brownish glint. Rich roasted, dark chocolate aroma, some cocoa and coffee hints. Taste of anise, ash, coffee and mid-sweet chocolate. Roasted ending added by fruit bitterness. Surprisingly easy to drink. Pretty nice (hotel room, Leeds 29.06.2013).
