ClubGonzo (4611) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 2, 2011
Bottle from Centra Colosseum, Oslo, shared with BBGTC. Pours a pitch black body with a small, off-white retention. Aroma is milk chocolate, hints of coffee and licorice. Taste is chocolate, roasty malts and hints of licorice again. Pretty tasty for its genre I suppose, but I do scowl a little when reading the back label where artificial preservatives and stuff is among the ingredients. I’m not a purist, but I still like my beer to avoid added chemicals as much as possible.

Countbeer (5242) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 13, 2011
Bottle: Small but vast light brown head/thick lacing on top of a black beer. Smell coffee and roasted malts. Smells like a good stout. Smell is better than  taste. Taste is very watery, just taste some light coffee, roaster malts and herbs. Light light light bitter coffee ish aftertaste Low to almost no carbo, soft watery mouthfeel, low to medium body and a watery texture.

Rune (9226) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 15, 2011
500ml bottle, 4.7% abv., shared with Finn, carried back home from Centra Colosseum in Oslo. Good looking with its low, tan-coloured head, spotty lace and deep rosewood coloured body. Slightly roasted aroma of cocoa powder and dark chocolate. Sweet flavour of milk chocolate along with cold coffee. Mid-sweet ending. Smooth. Some good drinking in this one (Tromsø, 13.10.2011).

ElDesmadre (2218) - Mikołów, POLAND - OCT 7, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2015 This brewer is infamous for failing to provide a constant quality of his brews. At times this stout is mediocre, at other times it tastes really great. The best batches are those where a gentle creaminess enriches its dark chocolatey taste. You might sometimes come across one of those. First rating: Bottle. Almost black with a thick and frothy head - they got rid of the handicap because not so far ago it was almost impossible to create any head out of this beer. Aroma is very intense freshly ground coffee and dark chocolate, plus some liquorice, vanilla, hops and coconut milk. Taste is very high on roastiness, a liquorice-infused coffee-dark chocolate onslaught leading to a quite intense roasted-hoppy bitterness with an aftertaste of earthy grass and coconut milk. A full bodied, very dry stout. This is one tasty beer!

yngwie (15191) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 17, 2011
Bottle. There’s a reddish hue on the dark, dark brown body, a small, brown to dark beige head sits on top, leaving some lacings. Roasted, toasted, coffee-ish aroma, not much fruityness, some dried fruits though. A touch of butterscotch in the far back. Roasted, coffee-ish flavor with dried fruits and some notes of butterscotch. Full-bodied and smooth. Roasted finish. Overall, sure a nice one, but I’d prefer a touch more bitterness. 110917
