wchesser (2049) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 26, 2016
Bottle. Label just says Extra Stout-Stout Ale but ABV is the same. Pours deep black, quite thick for the ABV with some brown lacing. Nose is molasses, some stewed prune, dark roast malts. Taste is some sweet malts with a bitter roast finish. Flavors of treacle, prune, and bakers cocoa. Drinks like an imperial and a great representation of an English strong stout. Not quite as good as the Kernels but a close second.

tonnant. Un look black de chez black. Un vrai verre de ptrole travers aucune lumire ne filtrera jamais. Un nez tonnamment discret. Par contre le extra se rvle en premire bouche ; taba da bouss en premire intention. Gros, gros got de caf bien torrfi mais... mais ... qui sadoucit assez vite et ne dgnre pas sur une amertume folle comme on pourrait sy attendre. Du coup, les quilibres sont plus complexes que prvu. Jy rflchis encore.

Tap at Jumpru, Oulu. Colour is black with brownish head. Aromas and flavours: Some coffee, some chocolate, some syrup, molasses and roasted malts. Pretty heavy stuff for this abv. Malty backbone which I like.

Diabobale (501) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - FEB 27, 2016
Stout ben strutturata. E di color nero quasi corvino, con schiuma beige scuro, abbondante, fine e molto persistente, pannosa. Al naso sentori di cioccolato fondente e qualche nota tostata di caff. In bocca ha carbonazione bassa e una buona robustezza. Al palato ancora cioccolato fondente, con chiusura amara finale tendente allerbaceo.
Earlier Rating: 12/19/2015 Total Score: 4
Si presenta di un bel colore nero con qualche riflesso rubino, la schiuma color marroncino per subito evanescente. Al naso subito note tostate (caff e orzo), fruttate (albicocca disidratata) e lontanamente qualche nota alcolica ed erbacea. Al palato ha carbonazione bassa, un corpo leggermente strutturato ed molto morbida. In bocca tanto torrefatto ma anche tanto amaro sul finale, con una vena erbacea. Sorso rotondo ma che lascia una buona pulizia, seppur senza secchezza.

rikstar (2563) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2016
0,33l fles bij bierkoning vandaan? Zwart als de nacht met een zeer zijde licht bruine schuimkraag. Geur is vol van cacao en koffie ook wat geroosterd. Smaak is perfecte balans tussen bitter en zoet, caramel koek met koffie in de nasmaak een bitter dat subtiel opbouwd maar niet overmeesterd. Smaak eindigt in zoute drop. Body is medium. Perfectie in een flesje

Cunningham (7716) - Halden, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2016
Ahhhh lovely evening sipper. Powerful and tasty.
Complete black as usual. Fine beige head. Ok intensity in the aroma. Chocolate and espresso. Medium to full body and a soft carbonation. Mellow nice sweetness with a fine bitterness to balance it. A bit oily texture. Lovely floating chocolate drink this one. Also some espresso and quite mild roast.
