Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 26, 2009
Pours a lightish brown for a stout- nice foamy head. Aroma is a nice roasty barely- light coffee, with licorice hints. Smooth chocolate and nutty toasted malts, roasted barley light espresso, star anise and leather with a clean bitter finish. As it warms you get some slight burnt rubber burnt toast and charred wood.

Ughsmash (7322) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2009
2007 bottle. Poured medium-deep reddish-brown with a thicker cap of tan head and some serious crud suspended in there. The aroma picked up sour chocolatey malts paired with soy and spicy licorice notes.. some sweeter chocolates surrounded.. seemed just a little off. The flavor opened with soured black malts and light spicy bitterness.. moderately-roasted, semi-sweet chocolate and a pinch of soy at the core.. dry, well-placed woody and herbal bitter accents at the edges.. finished sweeter and roasty, losing the sourness. Medium-bodied with higher carbonation on the palate and a good level of roast.. the sourness threw me off a touch and seemed to be a mild infection.. definitely some good stuff in here, and Id like to revisit sometime.

SHIG (3868) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JAN 19, 2009
Bottle: Poured a black with a brown colored head. Aroma is light with grassy tones, some roasted malt. Taste is kinda weak with roasted malt and chocolate, finish with that clumpy hop grass.

Ungstrup (29989) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2008
Bottled. A hazy dark red-brown beer with a thick lazing brown head. The aroma is sweet spicy combined with notes of roasted malt and coffee. The flavor is sweet with notes of spices and roasted malt as well as lighter notes of chocolate, leading to a dry bitter finish. Thanks fonefan and Brugmansia for sharing.

(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of fonefan. Pours a hazy dark brown with a reddish hue and a nice beige head. Aroma of hard roasted malts and a little vanilla. Quite a decent full body with a somewhat heavy carbonation. Sweetish burned malt accents with distinct vanila notes. Some malt bitterness in the far finish. 031008

sayravai (4677) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2008
(Bottled, BBE 11/2008) Very dark brown with a medium, beige head. Aroma of lactic sourness, roasted malt, chocolate. Roasted-malty, slightly lactic-sour flavor with some smokiness, and a clear, but controlled burnedness, and a dryish finish. Medium to full body with soft-n-silky carbonation. A very balanced and enjoyable stout. A bit straightforward, but nice.

omhper (20669) - Tyres, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2008
Bottled. Dark brown, minimal head. Papery chocolate aroma. Sweet with above medium body, fairly high carbonation. An initial surge of cocoa powder transits to milky chocolate sauce, passing over a slight metallic edge. Full flavoured.
