Ibrew2or3 (7300) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 27, 2014
Awesome green glass wide mouth 37.5cl bottle (my favorite bottle type I think) pours with a deep dark body that supports a full thick mocha head of foam. The aroma offers up big and roasty notes like dark roasted malts and over baked chocolate brownie as well as a dash of peaty smoke. The taste begins with dark roasted malts and chunks of chocolate and then more chocolate and malt richness toward midway. This all flows into some mild notes of booze and chili pepper heat. Behind these rich smooth notes are faint yeasty spices as well as a sense of minerals. Solid smooth sipper. Wow!

ComradeK (1060) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - SEP 1, 2014
375ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a large tan head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. Treacle, milk chocolate, roasty malt warmth and fruity chilli create the aroma. An initial hint of treacle sweetness is soon overcome by chilli heat, which fades to milk chocolate smoothness in the mid-palate. A slight fruity flavour mixes with resurgent chilli in the finish, and there is a lingering blend of alcohol warmth and chilli heat. The chilli has been added to just the right level to complement the beer and make its presence felt without being overpowering, and works very nicely with the sweetness of the base beer. Very enjoyable.

The last bottle from mane liquor. Pitch black motor oil like pour with a tanned small head. Nice lacing left around the glass. Nose is heavy on the dark chocolate, chilli and roasted malts. First mouthful is fucking smooth, creamy mouth feel. Taste is very roasted with more hot chilli coming through. After the initial upfront chilli bite out comes the bitter coffee with milk chocolate and a small subtle burn. Impressive stuff how the burn doesn't impact on the drinkability. Very well balanced stuff. Would definitely drink this again! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maneliquor (3379) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 20, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours black with a damn fine looking, heavy set tan head which just sits and sits and sits there. Great lacing too. Nose shows heavy dry chocolate. Touch of spice there but not overly. Almost mocha like but not over power by the coffee. A touch simple and standard on the nose but what is there is pleasing. Taste however shows a different story. Serious dry powdered like chocolate with some pepper and spice, not chilli heat though. Thick vanilla and coffee come through but all in superb balance. Seriously unbelievable drinkability for a 12% beer. Fucking good shit!

bytemesis (4071) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours deep opaque black with a medium brown creamy head that dissipates quite slowly and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is roasty, chocolate, a bit of tobacco and smoke, chili pepper, anise. Flavor is similar, initially sweet and roasty, bitterness coming on in mid swallow and growing to the finish. The spiciness starts as a bit of black peper, growing into a nice chili pepper warming sensation without ever becoming overpowering. Far finish leaves you with some acidic roasty bitterness and a lingering heat on the roof of the mouth and throat. Medium trending to full body, creamy mouthfeel. This is a well crafted beer.

Palme (3605) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 10, 2014
0.375l bottle. Looks amazing in the glass this one. A huge super lacing deep brown top over a near pitch black body. The nose is just as lovely as it looks. Super rich and powerful on the nose with lots of deep dark brown roasted malts, salty licorice, black burned roasted marshmallows, some sweet leather and a little bit of vanilla. Really something. It has a full-bodied thick oily mouthfeel with a soft prickling carbonation level. Lots of licorice in the taste as well. Wet rocks, a little bit of gunpowder and a lovely deep rick fruitiness. It’s just packed with flavor this one! The alcohol is also pretty well hidden until the aftertaste where it’s leaving a gentle peppery and warming feeling on back of the tongue. A lovely beverage on a lovely evening. Stack up! 23.12.2013

IPAgutten79 (684) - Skui, NORWAY - APR 24, 2014
Fullstendig svart med lavt espressofarget skum. Brygget lukter hovedsakelig sjokolade og lakris, men også vanilje, mørk malt og noe kaffe. Utsøkt. Smaken er flust av sjokolade og lakris, med noe sødme. Også noe pepper/chilli i smaken. Alkoholen er såvidt merkbar, på en behagelig måte. Godt balansert, med tanke på over 12%. Til slutt en nydelig bitter følelse på tunga og i ettersmaken. Alkoholen varmer lunt nedover halsen. Tykk konsistens, et mektig og særdeles godt brygg.

In short: Great IStout.
Pours black with nice tan head. Moderate head retention, good lacing. Roasty, coffee, chocolate, some burnt sugar aromas. Full bodied, soft carbonation, silky texture. Taste follows the nose, a bit spicy, alcohol noticed, smooth and extremely enjoyable. Good one, fulfills what it is expected from a beer a beer of this level.
