JPDIPSO (5450) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 18, 2016
Mild gusher. Brown color with a taller head that slow dissipates to a light tan ring around the glass. Dark fruits, light tar and chocolate, hint of coffee and roasted malt in the aromas. The scents are there, but they do not seem to mingle well. Fairly thin and bubbly feel. Dark chocolate and cocoa start. More and more acidity the further I go. Some mild tobacco and floral components. Dries out in the finish with just a little ash and black malt acidity. Complex, but not always balanced. 4/10

JefVerstraete (2754) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - APR 29, 2016
Bottle from LDW, Eke. Dark brown/black colour, brown foam. Sweet nose of caramel, bitter roasted malts, also tart notes. Bitter and roasty, bit weak and watery, some tart hints. Ok stout.

paulvanpelt (487) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2016
UPDATED: APR 23, 2016 Erg donker, bruin met paarse gloed. Kleine beige kraag. Begint fruitig: braam, bes. Eindigt met koffie, vanille. Vrij zoet, verder licht bitter en het zuur komt vooral in de nasmaak. Zacht. Wel aardig, maar iets te waterig en wat te vlak.

johndoughty (4795) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2016
Bottle. Slightly murky brown with a medium head. A fairly straightforward malty stout until near the end when a surprising fruitiness develops. Far more interesting at the end than the start of drinking.

minutemat (3841) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2015
330ml bottle from The Wine Seller, Wolverhampton. Pours black with good tan head. Aroma is lactose and roast. Taste brings forth nice coffee roast with some lactose smoothing the edges off the bitterness. Some milk chocolate & roasted malts but some unfortunate over-carbonated fuzziness that diverts your attention. Still.. an enjoyable beer.

suprchunk (2923) - Crestview, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2015
I swear my label was different. Dark pour. Not black, just dark. Small tan head. Little lacing. Big nose of sugar. Molasses. Taste is a uninspiring version of the nose.
