ACHops (1031) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 6, 2013
On tap (nitro) @ Chuck’s 85th. Pours opaque inky black with thick super creamy nitro head. Aroma is nitro heavy, but dry charred malt stands out. Incredibly creamy, rich mouthfeel. Deeply roasted malt balanced by slight hop bitterness and dark chocolate on the finish. Impressive richness for this low an ABV. Balanced as well. For a non-imperial stout, this is the gold standard.

Marrom, opaca. Espuma abundante e persistente. Aroma de chocolate e café, que acompanha o sabor, adocicado, com fortes notas de defumado e um pouco de melado. Retrogosto levemente ácido e defumado.

Pours a jet black with serious lacing. Aroma of sweet chocolate and roasted nut. Taste is smooth thanks to the nitro and bitter due to coffee not hops.

Dark-ety, dark dark. But the flavour is actually somehow refreshing. Molasses and dark dark chocolate with a hint of spice. I can't pinpoint where the balancing near citrus kind of zip comes from, but it works.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass to drink. The beer had a thick black color with a medium-sized creamy dark tan head with modest retention, but very good cling and lacing. Its aroma features roasty chocolate, molasses, and some toffee with a bit of earthy and grainy hops as well. The taste had a great malty chocolate sweetness along with molasses, coffee, and some grainy and earthy hops blended throughout. The body was watery with a filling mouthfeel and was a touch creamy and wet with good carbonation.

Overall a very good stout. Just a bit bitter to my taste. I prefer a sweet end. Appearance and palate definitely carry this one.

ALLOVATE (2724) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 18, 2015
Cellared away for a good two and a half years - well forgotten about to be honest. Into a snifter at just on cool. Black as night and opaque with a steady tan foam. Vegemite, Bovril, peppered Biltong, anchovy, a veritable feast of umami for a nose. Not one for modern text language but OMG! This is silky, velvety and full in body. Big hit of dark chocolate offers plenty of ground for some vinous, peppery notes, ash and charred wood, umami, grilled meat, earth and a tad of bitter/sweet treacle. Roasted malts a plenty. This is a great Stout. Really enjoyed it! (65cL, BB 01/02/14, ?)

Diabobale (339) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - OCT 1, 2015
Una birra che si presenta di un colore ebano scuro, tendente al nero, impenetrabile con una bel cappello di schiuma color nocciola, abbondante, molto pannoso e dalla lunghissima persistenza. Al naso sentori tostati (caffè), di cioccolato e una lieve nota di tabacco fanno da cornice al cereale. Al palato ti accorgi subito della sua morbidezza, con carbonazione media e un corpo discretamente strutturato. In bocca ritroviamo le note tostate e maltare, prive di altri sentori, che sul finale diventano più amare. Deglutendola si avverte l’amaro, molto delicato, tendente al resinoso, che si lascia ad una buona e leggiadra persistenza. Ottima la facilità di bevuta.

Tap on nitro at rogue PDX airport. Rich roasted malt aroma with chocolate and some earthy notes. Pours black with a creamy light brown head with excellent retention and lacing. Starts with rich roasted malt flavors and a hint of chocolate with a smooth, creamy mouthfeel and full body. Finishes quite smooth with the aforementioned flavors with a little bit of earthy hoppiness. Very nice stout.
