Dacrza (493) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - APR 30, 2014
DATE TASTED: April 25, 2014... GLASSWARE: Guinness vintage tulip... OCCASION: celebrating a one-day work week! APPEARANCE: jet black body; pours a fizzy brown head that settles in a hurry; sporadically disperses and forms a thin brown line; lacing is thin as well (gets a bump for the bottle, a quaintly antique shape... AROMA: intense, lactic, almost pungent impact with charcoal, peat and chocolate--a swirl of stoutly aromas... PALATE: mildly smooth; a bit oily and liquidy; active and medium-bodied; a bit soda-esque, but not as creamy as hoped for...TASTE: vanilla and milk mix playfully on the tongue; peaty and a bit smoky too--more complex than expected... OVERALL: a working man’s stout, brisk and flat and medium-bodied enough to command attention--a winner, but not among the immortals I’ve imbibed recently...

kwik-lime (1243) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2014
Dark with a thick head that lasts nicely. Malty, some ash, chocolate and vanilla. Didn’t do a great deal for me but it was certainly very smooth and having not bothered to look at the label I had no idea it was 6.5%.

dj (521) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2014
Bottle, 500ml. Black colour with a medium brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and fresh citrus. Flavour is very malty with cocoa. Some woody notes. Dark chocolate on the palate with a little bitterness. Light to moderate carbonation. Alcohol evident but not too much. Really tasty and smooth on the palate.

Dark espresso like color with quite thick head. Creamy aroma and taste mixed of cream chocolate and coffee. Quite soft on the palate with noticeable alcohol taste. Not much aftertaste. Not my kind of beer exactly.

0,5L bottle, BB 08.2015. Pours very dark brown with ruby highlights. It has tan head that stays for a moment. Aroma is roasted malt, dark fruits, and hints of alcohol. Taste is sweet, roasted malts, fruits, smoke, dark chocolate. Finish has burnt bitterness and caramel sweetness. Overall: nice one.

JStax (2853) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2014
Pint bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a near black with purple highlights. A khaki colored head appears with the pour, but dissipates pretty quickly. The aroma is ashy, dark bitter chocolate, licorice, fruity pebbles. The taste is more on the dry bitter side. Mellow carbonation. Medium bodied.

EyeAmBaldman (194) - Illinois, USA - APR 2, 2014
Pours opaque mahogany with a massive beige head. Notes of dark fruits and roasted malt. This is not a thick stout but it does feel a tad oily in the mouth. Taste is coffee, dark chocolate and a hint of malt. Good carbonation. Nice.
