Cool_Bond (1435) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2014
The aroma of dark malt and roasted malt. The taste is quite sweet and roasted malt, chocolate and dark malt. Moderately bitter which fills the upper part of the mouth of a weak moment. Wonderful and easy to drink beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

MSBrindbergs (348) - Solna, SWEDEN - SEP 6, 2014
Flaska från SB. Kolsvart vätska med minimalt brunt skum. Doftar rostad malt, kaffe och sötma. Inte så söt som jag förväntat, mer av kaffe i smaken. Väldigt tunn i övrigt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught @ Øllets Dag 2014, Kolding. Pours cloudy dark copper brown with small light tan head. Clear aroma of malt, with notes of caramel and roast. Sweetish flavour of lactose and caramel malt, with notes of coffee and touches of liquorice. Sweetish finish. Good.

Lawger (109) - SWEDEN - SEP 3, 2014
Pours a very dark brown with small off-white head. Scents of milk chocolate, caramel and some malts. Very reminicent of Young's Double Chocolate Stout on the nose. The palate is medium bodied, sweetish and easy drinking with a slightly roasted finish. No bitterness or booziness. It's balanced and agreeable. I could easily have a few of these at any given pub night, but it's not about to blow my socks off. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

33 cl bottle. Curated ham, vanilla, lactose and coffee in aroma and flavor. Nice bittersweet combo with bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beer4000 (4485) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2014
330 ml bottle. Clear dark amber body with a small beige head. Aroma feels like sweet dark malt and chocolate with a hint of vanilla. Flavor is sweet, dark malt, smooth chocolate with moderate bitterness. Fine body and sweet malt/chocolate aftertaste. Quite mild, not very complex but I really enjoyed it anyway.

Vignale (2068) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2014
Flaska från SB. En söt mjölkstout. Mjölksocker och chokladsås dränker de rostade smakerna, lätt beska men en aning kaffekärvhet räddar balansen något. Okej ändå, Jag har trots allt druckit en hel del värre i genren.
