jjsint (2260) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2016
Bottle from the Norwich Tap House. Very dark brown with a small tan head. Subtle aroma of chocolate fudge, crystal malt and Robusta coffee. Taste is surprisingly bittersweet, with a fruity hoppiness gliding over the earthy malt. Silky smooth finish. A fairly simple yet incredibly effective recipe.

ryanscourt (1360) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2016
Great to see how progressive SIerra NEvada really was. The west coast hops addition to non ipa styles was great, now popular. This beer is very close to the pale ale with a maltyier body. Much more of a hop aroma than other american style stouts and much more of citrus hop finish. Very reminiscent of a black ipa.

ALIBALI (536) - Kiel, GERMANY - FEB 20, 2016
Grossartiges AMERICAN STYLE STOUT. Könnte aufgrund seiner Hopfung auch gut als BIPA durchgehen. Alles sehr rund, die Röstaromen genau ausjustiert und dann die Hops. Die Säure dezent. Hammer. Flasche von Brewcomer Kiel ca. 3 Euro.

SinH4 (2546) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - FEB 19, 2016
Black color with big beige head. Aroma is dry espresso, chocolate, fruity, plums, fresh. Taste is more dry coffee and fruits, quite light and refreshing, but not watery. Medium carbonation. Delicious!

Eructoblaster (3803) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 13, 2016
Bottle - 12oz. Pours a black body with brownish glints and an average, fading, beige foamy/creamy head. Nice malty aroma with hoppy, chocolate, plummy, and coffee hints. Its well balanced malty/hoppy taste carries roasty and cocoa notes. Ends with a decent bitter/roasty finish. Simple, good basic stout.

Blastomorpha (57) - - FEB 13, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2016 I expected a way stronger aroma, but appearance and taste are good. It gets better after few sips, more rounded in flavour. Nice but not outstanding.
