Svart med lavt lys brunt skum. Toffee, skogsbær, kakaobønner og kaffelukt. Smaker salt lakris, bitter kaffe og lett søtlig brunt sukker. Medium fyller. Kort salt avslutning, medium kullsyre.

mgajdaczewa (1723) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 29, 2015
W aromacie czekolada i orzechy, nieco przyciężki, ale ujdzie. W smaku za to o tyle ciekawe, że orzechy wyraźnie dominują nad czekoladą, do tego niskie nasycenie i raczej wytrawne. Dodatek kakao i wanilii niewyczuwalny. Poprawne.

Towey1989 (1899) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2015
Cask at The Reginald Mitchell, Hanley (JDW) A black colour with a foamy off white head. Aroma of roasted malt, toast, burnt caramel, vanilla, oats and chocolate. Taste of roasted malt, caramel, oats, chocolate, vanilla and some berry. Full bodied and a smooth texture. A roasted oat finish. A full flavoured, smooth stout, more oaty and sweeter than I expected but nice.

berkshirejohn (6074) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2015
50cl bottle from B&M, Reading. A deep reddish chestnut pour with a billowing beige head; aroma of raisins with a touch of vanilla; sweet soft and grainy in the mouth, with a definite taste of oats, but also red fruit and sweet vanilla fudge; and a dry finish with lingering red fruits and coffee. A rather good stout.

SilkTork (5565) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2015
500ml dark bottle, filtered. A sweet and pleasant strong (or "Foreign") stout or dark beer. This has rich flavours - not overdone, just gently playing around in the mouth. Some raspberry, , some almond, some coconut, faint milk chocolate. Modest late bitterness. Very enjoyable.

mzaar (2837) - Varberg, SWEDEN - DEC 26, 2014
Flaska. Svart öl med ett fluffigt moccafärgat skum. Dofter av kakao, kaffe och vanilj. Vaniljen är mer framträdande i smaken. Tyvärr - vanilj i öl är inget jag går igång på. Där finns också choklad, kaffe och rostad malt. Rund och mjuk munkänsla. Något för tunn kropp.

sarauckelman (420) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2014
Dark thick black, with creamy head that lingers. Love beers that look like this. Aroma of malt and coffee, and a bit of smokiness. Thick bitter flavor, very hoppy, finishing almost with a bit of burn. It’s a bit too astringent for my mouth, both taste and palate.

uckelman (648) - Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2014
Very dark brown, not totally opaque. Creamy tan head. Aroma is mainly cocoa. Medium sweet, medium bitter. Has a little twist of cocoa on the finish. The vanilla is barely present. I don’t find that in the aroma. Medium body. Very drinkable and mellow.
