11.2 oz. bottle served in a snifter. Poured a deep brown with a thin tan head. Lightly smokey aroma with some chocolate. Bottle conditioned. Light smoke in the flavor as well. Not a lot of roasted barley. Medium to full bodied. Dry finish with some black patent. Decent.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Roasted, coffee, slight smoke aroma. Brown-black color with minimal tan head. Thinner than I had hoped and less smoky than the name promises. Still a good dark stout.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Erzbierschof, Bern
Black color with creamy head. Mild malt, roasted malt and cream aroma. Smooth and round mouthfeel; it has a good blend of flavors: malt, roasted malt and chocolate; relatively strong bitterness.
Not aggressive, well balanced. But soulless.

draught@erzbierschof - black beer with a long lasting beige foam; aroma of cold ashes, coffee and chestnuts; creamy palate, fizzy and full-bodied; some sweetness underneath, quite dry and fairly bitter, long roasted coffeish finish with more notes of ashes and nuts - robust and well-crafted

Mahogany color but looks more black in glass medium off white head. Aroma is yeast and minimal smoke. Great flavors and just the right amount of smoke it’s there but does not over take the beer at all.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl Bottle from De Bierkoning, bought a while ago. Almost black colour, beige head. Aroma of peat, leather, alcohol, liquorice (trekdrop), quite sweet as well. Flavour is molasses, leather, liquorice, alcohol, bitter light ashy finish. Medium-bodied. OK, expected a bit more though. RIS? Really?! Smoked BSA at best.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark pour, mild lacing, medium khaki head. Toasted malt aroma with maybe some toffee. Taste is caramel, toffee and chocolate. A little unbalanced. Not the best

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a very dark brown with off white leaving decent lacing. Aroma of toasted malt and alcohol. Flavors of the malt are stromg with an astrigent and bitter alcohol burn at the end. Not at the top of my list of beers.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle to pint glass
Oak, nutmeg, roasted malt, a trace amount of lime. Deep opaque brown with a long lasting creamy head. Taste is chicory smoke up front transitioning to sour apple, which fades quickly leaving a harsh hoppy smokiness.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Good, but not superb. The minuses are I'm really not picking up any smoke, and for the ABV would like it to be a bit thicker. Just overall pretty good. B-

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beinah schwarzes Stout mit grobporigem Schaum. Minimal rauchig-röstiges Aroma. Im Geschmack röstmalzig mit etwas Kaffee und Schokolade. Klingt dumpf röstig und spritig aus. Etwas grobschlächtig mit viel Luft nach oben.
