jmgreenuk (6743) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - 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

500ml Bottle - Very dark brown with some red tinges and a foamy head. Roasted malt, chocolate orange and a hint of coffee in the aroma. Roasted and zesty taste with orange, chocolate, coffee and roasted malt detected. Interesting and easy to drink.

McTapps (6324) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a deep black colour with steady low head and medium body. Aroma of malt and torf. Taste of intense malt, leaves, woods, bread, spices and coriander. Very light bitter hoppy finish. Nice beer and I enjoyed it a lot.

MichaelAwesome (6288) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 13, 2014
Bottle shared with McTapps. Classy stout with some malt, coffee, dark chocolate and leaves. A really classy piwo which offers a deep body and high drinkability.

Sigmund (6231) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2012
500 ml bottle, a gift. ABV is 4.9%. Black colour, large to moderate brown head, nice lacing. The aroma has moderate roasty notes (mild coffee, chocolate and liquorice), also strong fruity and acidic notes (hops, lemons and orange peel), hints of coriander. The aroma seems a bit misplaced, but that might just be due to old habit. Smooth flavour, very pleasant to drink, mild roasty notes. Not much acidity in the flavour, just a hint of orange peel in the background. Moderate hops. Not sure if I could identify the coriander, if I did not know that it should be there. Don’t know if March of the Penguins will be imported to Norway (most other WB beers are, so it is likely that it will) - I would buy again.

Finn (6011) - 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.
