Finn (3759) - 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.

johndoughty (3716) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2011
Bottle. Black with a small head. Gentle creaminess with a medium body.Slightl acidic and not quite up to their usual high standard. Still worth trying.

Nuffield (3636) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Cool concept/label/name. Big aroma--roasted and pleasant with a little bacon (Canadian bacon), too. Dark brown/black, no ruby. Low bitterness. Goes especially well with wheat bread. Decent body. Not bad at all. (cask at the Scottish Real Ale Festival, Edinburgh, June 2012)

jmgreenuk (3563) - 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

rauchbier (3559) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2012
Bottle, from Tesco Scunthorpe. Jet black, fluffy but shortlived cream head and moderate condition. Gentle liquorice and coffee in the nose with a developing phenolic burnt plastic note, pleasant powdery coffee bitterness in the mouth but quite soft and sweet behind the scenes with muted chocolate and a slight berry fruitiness. Finish is muted with a low coffee bean bitternesss, some woody vanilla and a slight chocolate sweetness

ClubGonzo (3509) - 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.

jaghana (3491) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - APR 5, 2014
Bottle 50cl, a dark beer with medium copper head. Nose is malty with fruity touch such as over ripped apples and apricot notes. Aroma is on a creamy chocolate and smooth coffee, light red fruit acidity, less sweet, roasted finish with still fruit acidity. Easy drinkable, good chocolate body.
