ForlornHope (190) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2015
33 cl bottle at home. Pours a very dark brown with hints of red against the light. Large tan head. Aroma of wood, spice, licorice, slightly tangy. Taste is sweet and malty with a light bitterness. The beer has a sugary, almost cola-like mouthfeel and has a tangy finish which is quite pleasant. Overall pretty good.

tia (1218) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Tap @ Mekong. Dark brown with almost no head. Very sweet smelling like chocolate malt. Flavor a lot drier than it smells, with some grassiness and light but noticeable bitterness. Smooth and not too heavy.

dnicolaescu (1187) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - FEB 3, 2015
BOTTLE 33 CL. Aroma: chocolate, light roast, same hop profile as Westkust (grassy, lemony, unripe fruit), but less intense. The flavour is similar: sweet and bitter chocolate, red fruit, good balancing spicy hops, some ashes in the finish. No smelly cheese, unlike yesterday’s Westkust. It is like a younger sister of the Westkust, same but different, more of a stout, less of an IPA. Very good and well integrated.

Moolesen (319) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle 75cl. Almost black witha beige head. Mild coffee, chicolate aroma. Relative thin body for the type of beer. Don’t expect a heavy rich stout. This is an easy to drink stout, where the choice of yeast might be the reason for giving it a trappist twist. Father short finish.

Cluniac (69) - - JAN 16, 2015
Decent strong ale. Aroma dominated by malty sweet smell, common in bok beers. Appearance is excellent, with a bold dark color and frothy 2 to 3 finger head. Taste is dominated by dark malty flavors, with some caramel sweetness. Palate is ok, a bit dry and bitter aftertaste. Creaminess medium, but not great. Overall a decent ale, but nothing overly remarkable about it.
