micmillon18 (37) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 12, 2015
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a nonic glass. No "born on date." Aroma - Black licorice, chocolate, dark bread, espresso. Faint smoke - dark fruit emerges as it warms. Very impressed. Appearance - Sticky mocha head. Deep, black color with some mahogany hues around the edges. Taste - Chocolate (initially milk then giving way to the darker persuasion), hints of smoke, finishing with dark roasted coffee. Burnt flavors linger prominently on the pallet. Palate - Supremely creamy, softy carbonated. Light bodied. Bone dry. Overall - Perhaps the best example of the style I’ve ever tried.

ladnewton (2001) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2011
Cask at the Southampton Arms, London on 6th August 2011. Ink-black with pale brown head. Inch of rich initial lacing then sporadic and patchy. Rich roast malts aroma; touch of fruitcake. Fresh ground coffee, smoky touch and roasted malts in liquid. Lasting bitter finish and plenty of coffee notes. Thick, full-mouth texture. Excellent.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 6, 2012
Bottle from Nina’s. A black stout with a thick tan head. Looks great! Aroma of roasty malt, coffee and chocolate. Flavours of roasty malt again upfront with coffee grounds and chocolate to finish. Moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Nicely bitter also. Lovely.

sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2013
Poured a deep brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of roast malt, burnt coffee grinds and dark chocolate. Full body, flavour as per the aroma, well balanced with a hint of liquorice.

BeerViking (4947) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2013
Cask at the Magpie, near-black with a clingy mid-coarse beige head and aromas of bitter cocoa and a little coffee and plum. Rich and winey, yet dry and bitter with hints of smoke and liquorice. Gorgeous.

Vinx (133) - ITALY - MAY 16, 2015
Nothing to add to the commercial description. This beer is absolutely perfect, maybe the best dry stout I’ve ever tasted. A balance between the aromas and a neatness which don’t let you indifferent.

JefVerstraete (3513) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - JUN 10, 2016
Bottle from De Hopduvel. Black colour, dark brown foam. Intense nose of coffee and roasted malts, some ashes. Bitter and dry. Complex and easy drinkable. Great stout.
