Grumbo (549) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2012
Bottle from local supermarket. Apprearance was good however overall not too impressed. Roasty aroma. Quite thin for what was labelled as a ’smooth creamy stout’ though interestingly the image against the beer on this site says its a dark ale which I’d have said a more accurate description.

LarsEngen (357) - Sandvika, NORWAY - DEC 23, 2012
50 cl bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika. Pours very dark brown with some ruby tones. Medium creamy brown head that leaves a good lacing. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Medium body and a light bitterness. Good one but not that complex.

Bansidhe (10) - Perth, SCOTLAND - DEC 8, 2012
Aromas - Roasted malts, liquorice, oddly also a slight aroma reminiscent of Hoegaarden thanks to the Coriander & orange zest. Taste - Quite smooth. Coffee and roasted malts. Slight creaminess. This is a nice tasty and smooth stout which I’d love to try on tap.

mike_77 (3027) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2012
Aroma is quite hoppy and zesty with a hint of ash too. Initially it has hop freshness then the roasted bitter malts come through.

ClubGonzo (3985) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a deep brown, near-black body with a small light beige head. Nose is light licorice and milk chocolate, aniseed-like herbal tones and some lactic hints. Taste is filter coffee, toffee, milk chocolate, dark malts and some herbal traces. Slightly thin palate, yet smooth. A bit plain - especially for using spices - but a fair enough stout, all in all.

Poured dark black with a frothy tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate and roasted malt. Full bodied with flavour similar to the aroma with some extra roasted coffee. Dry. lingering aftertaste.

500 mL bottle from Asda into a pint glass. Black, with a bubbly head. Lovely chocolate/coffee aroma. Nice smooth roast and chocolatey taste. A hint of spice. Goes down well.
