Brandman (2970) - Helsinki, - JAN 27, 2012
Black body, light brown head. Aroma of sweet malt, metal, some roasted grains. Cold, metallic, some chocolate and acid in flavour. Easy, but not my favourite.

leoben (20) - Manchester, Lancashire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2018
500ml bottle from Morrisons, UK, as part of their 4 for £6 offer. It pours black, with a thin beige head that dissipates quickly until it is no more than a ring around the edge of the glass. A fresh aroma, faint hints of malt and caramel. Light bodied, with light-medium carbonation. The taste is only a bit dry, malty, burnt caramel and a hint of twiglets - maybe not the most complex or intriguing, but enjoyable. Overall, a recommendable stout.

Grumpelmies (462) - GERMANY - MAR 18, 2018
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2018 Bottle. Black with a small white/beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, red berries, dark chocolate, cocoa and earthy/floral hops. Taste follows aroma. Long lasting dry aftertaste of dark chocolate. Moderate bitterness. Medium to strong carbonation. Very balanced. A lovely Stout, easy drinking but rewarding.

guinnessdaniel (2) - - MAR 12, 2018 does not count
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2018 Tan head that disappears quickly. Fine pores. Clear and slight carbonation. Creamy, smooth in the mouth, dry on the tongue. Smell of biscuits and fruit. Taste is initially citrus fruit, develops to dark chocolate (over 80% cocoa), and finishes with a distinct cranberry taste. Overall fruit dominance with chocolate, malt, and even little floral notes coming through. Overall, nice development and variance.

JoTheO (303) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 10, 2018
On tap, Churchill Arms, Stockholm. Deep brown, lighly tanned head. Chocolate and light coffee notes. Plums and dates, ending in lightly bitter roasted notes. A great stout of ”normal” abv.

Good stout, very smooth., Mainly chocolate and vanilla in taste, bit of roasty notes. Good biterness but not too high.

josanguapo (2215) - SPAIN - MAR 5, 2018
From Labirratorium. 2 months after bbf date. In Teku glass. Watching X-Men 2. Really strong bitterness with herb grass notes. Starts sweet and light but ends up being fairly bitter, with some artificial note

3.4
cage.79 (98) - Worcestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2018 Bottle. Pours black, cream head that reduces to a clinging line around edge of glass. Faint aroma of dark chocolate and dark fruit -plum perhaps. Taste is lovely as expected; chocolate, faint vanilla, earth, not too bitter. Fairly fizzy but with enough body to be interesting. Impressive beer for mid ABV.

3.6
pleispleis (315) - Maccagno, ITALY - FEB 24, 2018
bottiglia 50 cl, schiuma fine color cappuccino media persistenza, colore nero, al naso caffè cacao liquirizia, in bocca malto tostato caffè cioccolato fondente frutta secca, leggero affumicato, carbonatazione leggera, corpo rotondo, cremosa, amaro moderato. Una Stout che si beve bene. Non male. 24.02.18

3.8
ZodiacM (1420) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2018
LCI. Uit de fles geschonken. Mooie volle stout, met smaken van gebrande mout en chocola.
