Poured this beer into a trumpet glass from the bottle to drink. It had a rich black color with a dark brown hue, and a big dark tan foamy/creamy head with average retention, good lacing, and excellent cling. The beer had a sweet malty chocolate aroma with notes of coffee, caramel, and nut, and also a toasty earthy hops component, and a slight smokey effect. Its taste was a sweet chocolate/caramel malt flavor with some toasty hops giving a slight smokey bitterness. It had an average-density body with a slight syrup effect, and was slightly dry, though a touch creamy with average carbonation and life.

Swaroga (1423) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 6, 2014
33cl bottle. A very decent light stout. Nothing wrong with this one but nothing exceptional neither. Dominating black chocolate with orange peel. Aftertaste is mellow and quite hoppy. It is a very drinkable one without any strong dry notes. Why not.

Schönes Schwarzes Bier. Tolles Aroma und Geschmack durch ausgewogenen Einsatz von Röst- und Karamellmalz und angenehmer Hopfung.

Douberd (2479) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - OCT 31, 2014
(Sierra Nevada Stout) 355 bottle at the Hoppy Loft, into a tumbler. Very dark, almost black colour on the body, small but thick and creamy head, with good retention, leaving light lacing on the glass. Aroma of oats, fruits, even some citrus. Taste of oats, light liquorice, light roasted malts, quite a bit of chocolate. Thin body, low carbonation. Quite good, with a thicker body would be even better.

Holmen1 (2689) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 28, 2014
Flaske delt med Ovesen: svart rubin med flott beige skum. Diskret aroma av nybrent kaffe, mørk sjokolade og ristet brød. Nydelig balansert smak, her har de truffet innertier. Stor og myk munnfylde. Deilig tørr avslutning med et hint av rugsyrlighet selv om der ikke er brukt rug.

wmubronco1992 (633) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours black. Large tan head. Coffee aroma. Flavor of dark coffee and chocolate. Palate is on the thin side. Dry roasty mouthfeel. I was surprised that this had a lighter body, but with an ABV of 5.8% that probably is expected. Overall a good stout, maybe very good considering the lower alcohol content, but not crazy good. Would drink again.

12oz bottle pours a dark brown to almost black with mocha colored head. doesn’t last to long. in its own right this a good. but for me this is not so much a good stout. its does have some good aroma and the flavor is pretty decent. but stouts usually have a thicker body and somewhat a stronger flavor. that being said this has all the characteristics of a good stout but this one is not for me.
