gunnar (5687) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 28, 2012
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Valkendorfgaten, Bergen. Pours dark brown, as Coke with a big creamy off-white head. Strong roasted malt aroma, some herbs and spicy notes as well. Taste is smooth, with a creamy mouthfeel, liquorice and roasted malts, lingering roast, good one.

tmrmwel (1058) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 8, 2012
Bottle. Pours black, with a finger thick head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, caramel and some fruity hops. Full body with a rather slick texture and soft carbonation. Flavour is sweet with burned malts, bitter chocolate and dark syrup, as well as some dark fruits and some nice hoppy bitterness through the finish.

Rune (8501) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 3, 2012
500ml bottle carried back home from the Cave in Glasgow and shared with Finn. Fawn-coloured head to a rosewood coloured body – very nice, indeed. Spotty lacing to the glassware. Grainy chocolate malts to the nose. Flavoured with semi-sweet chocolate malts, alongside notes liquorice and lactose. Rounded and dry ending with distant roastiness Pleasing (Tromsø, 20.09.2012).

Finn (4402) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 2, 2012
Flaske 0,5l spandert av Rune og delt med ham under rateseanse hos ham 20 Sep 12. Egentlig svart men i sterkt lys slipper det en dyp rødfarge igjennom. Svakt farget kremaktig skum som fester seg godt til glasset. God sjokoladearoma. Smaken er sammensatt: Sjokolade & lakris. Antydning til bær i ettersmaken. Bra men uspennende.

HenrikSoegaard (10870) - Randers, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle. Creamy off-white good mostly lasting head. Dark red-amber colour. Moderate malty and hoppy aroma. Moderate bitter nice roasted/chocolate flavor. Average moderate bitter finish. Creamy palate.

Foffern (1304) - Bodø, NORWAY - SEP 22, 2012
Bottle at home. Pours a pitch black colour with a medium frothy beige head. Aromas of roasted malt, dark chcolate, dried fruit, lactose, leather, coffee coriander and hints of smoke. Roasted flavours as well with leather and coffee being the most dominant, and lasting dark chocolate in the aftertaste. Soft and rich moutfeel, and a medium bitterness. A stout with good aroma and flavour but this could be more pronounced. Anyway a solid and easy-drinking stout.

Dommod2011 (703) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2012
An enjoyable drink, chocolatey, quiite thin and a little fizzy, more like a porter in my opinion, although I’m no expert. Only downside was a lack of Morgan Freeman narration to accompany the experience.

jmgreenuk (5013) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2012
Bottle from Tesco's. More of a porter than a stout. Dark mahogany pour with a thin brown head. A weak aroma but a very complex bitter taste. The bitterness really defines this beer. This beer breaks all the rules but is highly drinkable for those people who like this style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
