fiulijn (16462) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - NOV 12, 2012
Bottle from La Cave à Bulles, Paris
lot 330, bottled 28/09/12, bb 04/2014

Dark brown color, almost black, with generous creamy head. Mild aroma of cacao and light aroma of roasted malts; a bit dusty. The mouthfeel is dry, but smooth, there is some roasted malt and some chocolate; also a light astringency, from the yeast maybe; the final is drier and weaker.
An average Stout, with a chocolate hint, but without vibe.

MrHangover (3302) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 22, 2015
Bottle @ THT August, courtesy of Scotty001. Pours a black beer with almost no head on top. Aroma of roasted notes, cookies, some slight chocolate and molasses. Flavor is mildly sweet, some cacao and lives very short. Virtually no aftertaste and very watery mouthfeel. Not the best out there.

The_Osprey (3443) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2015
330ml bottle from Kris Wines. Picked up last week and turns out it was bottled Oct 2013. Bit of a shelf turd then! 6.5%, lot 390. Black with a big foamy brown head that endures. Aroma is chocolate syrup, coffee and black forest gateau. Body is light, foamy, soft carbonation. Taste is dry, chocolatey, coffee, ash. It has a bit of a watery, thin vibe but the flavour is pretty good. It’s held up pretty well.

StueyD (1467) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2015
A dark cola brown beer with a thickish tan head. A strong dark malt aroma, burnt sugar, nutty, woody and smoky, then the expected dark chocolate element. Dry mouthfeel. The taste is dry and nutty, woody and smoky, a hint of vanilla spice in the background bring forth the softer chocolatey flavour that smooth the dryness into a fairly well balanced finish.

Bottle. Black beer with a strong off white head. The aroma is mildly malty with roastedness, the flavour has plenty of bitterness with roastedness and maltiness. Overall a nice stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
