tfredvik (1849) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2015
Close to black body with a very large, dense, creamy and rocky beige, very long-lived head that laces the glass excellently. Fairly strong aroma of roasted malt, coffee and hints of fruits. Quite strong flavour that follows the aroma, plus some dark berries and grapefruit in the moderate bitter finish. Light body, dry and moderate carbonation. A nice stout.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 9 months after bottling, from Gulating Arendal]

HogTownHarry (6381) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2015
September 14, 2014 - at Holborn Whippet; cask. Looks great - deep deep red, bubbly, with a tan/light brown creamy/foamy lasting head - very thick lacing too. Aroma more like an extra malty traditional mild; roast (coffee, some dark chocolate) - mineral character too (their water? I seem to remember other Buxton beers having a similar background bite to them), enough dry floral bitterness to be noticed. Taste follows, more chocolate and less coffee character - the mineral character deepens and sharpens in the taste - its a bit hard to ignore, really - it sticks around longer than anything else in the finish, and knocks the taste score down to 6/10. The mouthfeel is fairly thick, its airy and creamy, and the "mineral" thing makes it see pretty astringent, which doesnt really fit what this is aiming for, IMO - I really would rather have seen this as a milk/sweet stout - all the other elements were there .... "I wanna like it - but I dont"

klm1 (1301) - Bled, SLOVENIA - JUL 27, 2015
Pours black haze / clear colour with creamy tiny lught brown head. Carbonation is visualy low. Aroma have no notice of an alcohol, prevails notes of roasted barley and chocolate, with some hint of coffee. Similar is flavor: without notice of an alcohol, but with firstly sweet hint of a dark chocolate and coffee, which led to dry bitter / sweet finish. Malt sweetness is medium, hop bitterness also, body is soft/sticky. Proper, actually very proper dry stout.
