Bullit (3975) - Burgos, SPAIN - SEP 16, 2007
Dark brown colour, almost no head. This stout has some fruity, sour tones, along with bitter chocolate flavours. Not very smooth mouthfeeling, which I usually really like in a stout. No complex flavours.

highlandlad (1413) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - AUG 18, 2007
This seems more like a Belgian strong ale than a stout, but pretty nice regardless. Smoky brown colour with a lacing head. Smells like scones dripping with treacle and bitter dark chocolate. Very rich and sweet. Soft mouthfeel, medium bodied but thinning in the swallow. Could use a little more bulk. Flavourwise, it’s all about the malts. Very sweet - treacle, Botrytis sugars, some nice smoky malts and an interesting herbal note in the finish - marjoram, perhaps. Little bit sour in the swallow. Nice. Very drinkable as a late-night sipper in the Belgian style. (33cl bottle from Cloudwine Cellars, Melbourne. BB end 2007)

BuckeyeSammy (537) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2007
Not being a huge dark beer fan this one really suprised me. This well carbinated stout had caramel hints.

Miksu (4946) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUL 11, 2007
0.33 l bottle. Looks like cola, very sparkling. Roasted, sweet and sour aroma with salty licorice and some meaty aged notes. Malty, sweet, biscuity, toffeish and cola-like flavor with strong licorice notes, figs and raisins.

Kirill (277) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 6, 2007
dark chocolate and quickly dissapearing head... the chocolate is the strongest ive had for a stout yet, but at the expense of other subflavors... thats not necessarily a bad thing though... good stout

wetherel (1836) - Encinitas, California, USA - JUL 4, 2007
$5 330mL bottle from Takanaya. Musty yeasty aroma, I think from autolysis. Maybe a little milk smell. Deep rich dark caramel color. Little head, except for medium size bubble at the edge of the glass. Medium body. Not too sweet or dry. A little bit of a sour finish.

sinkas (273) - Perth/Fremantle, AUSTRALIA - JUL 2, 2007
Bottle, IBS, Perth Amazing funky, spicey choclately aroma, coupled with a complex, malty, caramel and grainy falvour, make this an absolute standout. Grab it if you can.

iep (230) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2007
Pours a dark opaque brown, almost black. Not much foam & little lacing. Great roasty liqourice aroma & taste, with some dark chocolate, espresso, coconut, plus loads more. Long, sweet & assertive finish with good roasty bitterness in the back. Medium/light body, well carbonated. A pleasant surprise.

KnutAlbert (6012) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 10, 2007
Cloudy brown, I could probably have let this settle for a few more days. Small, rapidly shrinking head. Rather sweet and malty, not much of the brown toast or burned grain you usually find in a stout. A little liquorice and fennel. Easy-drinking, with a warming alcohol finish. Nyt a typical stout, but a nice beer.
