ChrisTurner (207) - Melbourne, - JUN 21, 2008
Drunk at room temperature (not me, the beer). Deep, impenetrable black with a dense cappuccino-like head with some retention. Plenty of lacing. Gentle aroma of milk chocolate. Delicious, creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is all chocolate with a touch of roasted bitterness. Gently bitter aftertase. There is sweetness in the flavour and aroma but it’s never cloying. An absolute delight from beginning to end.

£1.50 from Tesco, Salford Precinct. Not seen in the other local Tesco - unsure why they stock differently. Lovely beer with a more subtle chocolate taste. Thick and creamy

Kita (1422) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUN 27, 2015
Bottle, 0.50l, shared with Bojan. Pours deep brown with thin creamy tan-like head and fair lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, lactose, vanilla and grassy hops, Taste starts with moderate sweet roasted malt and chocolate, follows milky with licorice note, warming mouthfeel and moderate bitter finish. Medium body, creamy texture and soft carbonation in palate. Very decent stout...

Sparf (171) - Östersund, SWEDEN - JUN 25, 2015
Sötsyrlig doft av rostad malt, kakdeg och kaffe. Smaken följer upp med samma toner: rostad malt, sötsyrlig kakdeg och kaffe. Eftersmaken är trevligt rostad med en svag efterklang av beska. Brygden är kompakt svart och skummet är mycket kort. Lite oljig karaktär, helt fyllig kropp och en välavvägd kolsyra.

SkillsFactory (148) - ITALY - JUN 21, 2015
Praticamente nera, schiuma color nocciola non molto persistente. Aroma di caffè, cioccolato, malti tostati e caramello, leggerissimo erbaceo. Stesse caratteristiche al palato, corpo medio-pieno, mediamente carbonata.

jamaty (1155) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2015
Negra o casi con 2 dedos de espuma cremosa y tostada. Aroma muy frutal, albaricoque y chicle de fresa. El sabor combina esto con rico chocolate amargo, en un conjunto muy cremoso y agradable. Muy buena.

Kauge (658) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 1, 2015
Bottle at bro’s. I remember the first sniff frightened me - it seemed metallic and lactic, not at all nice, but then after some time it opened up, the metallic effect disappeared, and it was nice and thick, chocolaty, milky, malty. It tasted as nice and quite similar, with a bit of bitterness and coffee. Smooth creamy mouthfeel with thin carbonation. I ended up quite enjoying this.

bytemesis (4468) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 25, 2015
Bottle thanks to Brian - I used to like this many many years ago. Pours dark black, medium tan head, dissipates fairly quickly, some lacing. Aroma is lactose, roast, a bit burned, some dark chocolate, perhaps a note of rubber. Flavor is light sweet and light plus bitter, a bit burned. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel.

overtheline (66) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - MAY 24, 2015
500ml bottle pours pretty much black, some ruby red shines through when held to light. Small tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate maybe a bit of licorice. Sweet chocolate followed by bitter coffee. Good mouthcoating feel but lighter than I had expected with long bitterish finish that eventually turns gently warm.
