Bottled at Monks Caf, Wallingatan, Stockholm. Pours out in a dark brown, almost black colur witha rich dense beige head. Rounded and dry aroma of roasted malts, yeast, tobacco, and coffee. Medium-bodied with notes of dark chocolate, nuts, tobacco, mint, and yeast. Smooth yet a bit chewy mouthfeel. Anise, salt, minerals, yeast and coffee in the the long well-rounded finish.

TBone (13539) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 30, 2009
Bottled (CK, BB 03/2009). Dark-brown color, nice cloudy tan head. Aroma of molasses, tobacco, cold coffee and some licorice. Roasted malty, very ashy flavor. FInish is bitterish-roasted. Nice soft and velvety mouthfeel. Just too much ash and tobacco in the flavor for my liking. Otherwise quite ok.

sayravai (4677) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2009
(Bottled) Very, very dark brown with a smallish, tanned head with some lace. Aroma of milky sourness, strong licorice, sweet and lightly roasty malt. Roasted-malty, slightly sour flavor with an ashy-burned finish. Medium, reasonably velvety body with soft carbonation. A bit too burned-ashy stout - and not very interesting, either.

pivnizub (9162) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - MAR 4, 2009
Bouteille: Literally black, presumably hazy with a small beige off-white layer; dark roasted malt, a light sweetness, liquorice and a touch of barnyard in the nose; quite solid sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied; dry roasted, but also sweet finish with some liquorice in the aftertaste. All in all a pleasure, but why must a Stout be sweet.........

jgb9348 (4981) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Pitch black body with a very thin light-brown head - insanely dark. Aroma of molasses, deep dark roasted malt, oak, cereal and very STRONG vanilla pods. Full-bodied; Strong meaty flavour with molasses, raisins and burnt coffee noticeable. Aftertaste very mild, with malt and burnt sugars in behind. Overall, not very good - perhaps too much dark burnt sugars and not enough other flavours or character to be good. Im happy to have tried this, just wished it was a bit better. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from the Utobeer Market Stall in Borough (London), England on 29-November-2008, sampled on 01-March-2009 at home in Washington, although I did see this beer also (and two other varieties) at Beer Mania in Bruxelles a few weeks earlier.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - MAR 1, 2009
Bottle from Cracked Kettle. Black, coarse cappucino head. Dry, burned malty nose with faint solvent, wood, little herbs and coffee beans. Similar to Titanic stout, though a bit messy. Simple burned flavor, grainy malts, woodiness, dry ashy finish. Hardly any coffee/cocoa notes. Hollow, even a tad watery palate. A drinkable, but ashy and thin stout.

DruncanVeasey (7423) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2009 Bottle off Octos shelf. Been eyeing this one enviously for a while. Black as yer hat pour spiralling inkily into the snifter. Dense tan head going nowhere. Mouth-watering Lindt Excellence 85% aroma drenched with deep deep raisiny cocoa, fat humming blackcurrant, red apple, musty alpha hoppage, espresso,puff of English sulphur, Marmite, brine,charcoal. Come on, thats a 9. No disappointments flavour-wise; massive charred high cocoa and full-on alpha bitterness, coffee,yeast extract, splashes of US impy stout intensity. Balanced and dry Id say, and with the possible exceptions of Black Albert/Ellezelloise Hercule, the best Belgian Stout Ive had. Above all, COCOA and HOPS. Love it.
