BenDover (201) - Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Pours a deep ruby-brown, with ridiculous amounts of dense tan foam that leaves behind some nice lacing. Aroma is of roasty malts, bittersweet chocolate, maybe cherries and figs. Flavor is sweet and malty, some coffee, a noticeable alcohol burn, and turning bitter and roasty at the end.

ThirstyBird (1210) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - APR 16, 2014
Pours deep, ruby red/brown with a big tan head. The smell is fruit, dark malt, roast. The taste is roasted malt, mild coffee, fruit, quite sweet. On the light side of medium, a bit watery especially for a 9% stout with fine carbonation. Needs a bit of bitterness to counter the sweetness plus a bit more body.

RexTalionis (2134) - FINLAND - APR 11, 2014
Bottled. Pours dark brown in color with a tan head. Lots of roasted notes in aroma, part coffee and part dark chocolate. Notes of sweeter chocolate and as well. Feels quite nice. Mild and soft mouthfeel. There’s that nice dark roasted malty feeling which feels like some bitter cocoa and some sweetish licorice in taste. Later on there appears notes of salty licorice as well. Easy to drink nonetheless.

Douberd (1717) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 1, 2014
Bottle 750 ml at home, into a snifter. ABV 9% Very dark mahogany brown colour on the body, with a huge beige head, thick, with very good retention. Never collapses entirely, a thin line of foam remains on the surface. Light lacing left behind. Aroma of oats, liquorice, light milky chocolate after a swirl of the glass. Tastes pretty good, again oats and liquorice, just a hint of the alcohol. Thick and creamy body, soft carbonation. Overall another very good beer from this brewery, bearing the Troubadour name.

monk191 (727) - California, USA - MAR 17, 2014
A great imperial stout. Pours a muddy brown color with a super thick tan head, like a root beer float. Smells incredible, vanilla, cinnamon, and s'mores. Taste is creamy with cinnamon and vanilla, with some hops in the finish. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

swesson (133) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Poured from a bomber bottle. Black color and big, light brown thick head. Smells like molasses bread. Tastes of chocolate, heavy malt, and deep fruity goodness bitter finish. A great stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Swaroga (1114) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 8, 2014
75cl butelka. OCZY : ciemno-brązowy kolor ze sporą i wytrwałą pianą o kolorze beżowym. NOS : armaty świeżo zaparzonej kawy, czarnej czekolady, twarogu, śliwek, rodzynek, orzechów. USTA : piwo jest gęste i oleiste. Średnio gazowane. Jest to raczej słodki stout z nutami suszonych, ciemnych owoców i wanilii. Następnie cierpki i gorzki smak podobny do smaku kawy. Lekko anyżowy. Posmak przypomina czarna czekoladę z rodzynkami. ODCZUCIA : Jedynie podpalane nuty słodu i różnią go od typowego Quada belgijskiego. Pozytywnie podobny do FES Guinessa. OCENA : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 5/10

evergreen0199 (1832) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2014
On tap at Brugge beer festival 2014, Belgium. A black coloured pour with a medium beige head on top. Roasty, malty, chocolate aroma. Tastes similar, roasty, malty, chocolate, quite bitter. Quite good but ought to be more complex.

Zwarte kleur bier met een volle crème kraag. Ruikt vol met chocolade, koffie, caramel, vanille. Smaakt vanille, melk, koffie, alcohol. Goede bittere nasmaak.
