Svesse (7502) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 14, 2012
(Bottle) Very dark, almost black colour, with frothy pale brown head. Malty, roasted nose with coffee, dark chocolate, dark rye bread and a touch of cocoa. Malty, roasted taste with notes of coffee, dark bread, chocolate, a touch of raisins and hints of tobacco or ashes. Dry finish with a gentle, roasty bitterness. Medium body, quite dry. Not extraordinary, but a well made, solid and tasty dry stout. Nice one.

EchoShine (33) - Athens, GREECE - MAY 15, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2012 Love this stout. More complex over the known. Great head when served on the warm side and such character on the taste and palate. All said... roasted coffee, little wooden oak, dry fruits of plum. nice adjusted bitterness that tastes quality from czech. Drinkable is just right if you want at least 2. Not heavy at all.

tfredvik (1555) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2012
Black body with a rather small, frothy, light-brown, short-lived head that laces the glass well. Although the head looks a bit sad compared to the dense nitro pillow of the Dry Stout Which Must Not Be Named, the fluffy head enables the very pleasant and quite strong aroma to escape from the beer. The aroma is sweet, dark roasted coffee and dark fruits of the slightly over-ripe kind. The taste is also quite sweet and the dry finish is long-lasting and has a moderate bitterness. The flavour is rather strong, with the same dark roasted coffee notes as in the aroma, while the fruity notes are a bit less over-ripe. The body is light and the texture is close to watery, but still it feels quite smooth. A nice, clean and very drinkable beer that has a slightly better mouthfeel that the most watery dry stouts.
[50 cl bottle, enjoyed 3 months after BB date, from Jacobs pĺ Holtet, Oslo]

tmrmwel (1525) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 1, 2012
Bottle, shared with VANŘ Bergen. Pours a dark caramel amber, with an airy head. Aroma is caramel and coffee. Flavour is quite sweet, with syrup and coffee, and yet the finish is quite dry and coffee-like. A decent brew in the category for drinkable, plain, low ABV stouts.

larsga (6937) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2012
Medium dark beige head. Nearly opaque black body goes deep dark red at edges. Aroma of ... I’m not sure. Is there an aroma at all? Dry-sweet milky chocolatey taste with caramelly honey notes. Soft, silky smooth mouthfeel. Mid-bodied. Dryish resiny chocolatey aftertaste with metallic notes. Nice, subtle, understated, and very harmonic. Really liked it. Highly drinkable. (0.5l bottle, Centra Majorstuen, Oslo.)
