decaturstevo (5459) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUL 30, 2015
Black brown pour with tan head and lace. Aroma is light coffee and a touch of chocolate. A decent malt bitter. Medium bodied and fizzy. A little weak on flavor and body but still ok.

Marko (4303) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 27, 2015
Bottle at The Loop Hotel, shared with Hrabren, visnja666v and Goran (thanks!). Poured a black body with a slightly off white head. Creamy, slightly perfumey aroma, grapes, light coffee, just slightly oily but generally fresh. Very light... banana? Eh? But certainly interesting. Mild, light taste, coffee, creamy, vague raisins, light soapiness. Dry finish. OK dry stout all in all, nothing against it but the price.

HammerTroll (821) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 23, 2015
Pitch black, small brown head. Aroma is chocolate and cocoa, hints of sugar. Taste dark chocolate, coffee, bit roasty, long cocoa bitter finish. First kick is weak, but it’s growing beautifully. Bit watery, soft carbonation, creamy texture. If there is little bit more higher ABV and thickness, this one would be marvelous.

gsmitty80 (2011) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2015
Nitrous pour. Great dark black pour with a holding cream head. Sweet molasses taste with a tiny bite of chocolate. Great beer.

kajser27 (366) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 2, 2015
Pitch black with weak but constant tan head. Aroma is of chocolate and weak roasted malts. Taste sweet chocolate, some caramel, some roasted malts, bitter chocolate and bitter dryish finish. Medium bodied and average carbonation.

loubar (154) - Los Gatos, California, USA - FEB 9, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2015 12 oz. bottle from BevMo. Black body with a frothy tan head that quickly dissipates. Lots of flavor; black coffee, dark chocolate, burnt toast give way to a big malt base. Extra points for the surprisingly dry finish. I think they achieved their goal: a flavorful, yet light, session stout. Love the low ABV.
