dimenhetfield (2486) - , Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2013
12oz bottle shared with friends. This one was quite a treat. Nice aroma of earthy hops mixed with chocolate malts and the slightest bit of coffee grind. Really easy to drink and extremely tasty.

Cunningham (7719) - Halden, NORWAY - MAY 21, 2017
Black color with a fine beige head. Ok lacing. Ok intensity in the aroma. Medium body and fizzy carbonation level (as usual for barrel aged beer). Easy to drink. Ok balance between sweetness and bitterness. Semi dry ending. Wood/oak, chocolate, roast and coffee in the flavor. Nice easy drinkable stout with a fine character. Just a bit to thin mouth feeling.

oobawa (1210) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 16, 2017
Big hoppy bitter bomb of a porter, chock full roasty unsweetened chocolate, deep raisin and mocha notes underneath. Mild sweetness perks up as it warms, and a lengthy bitter finish adds a nice spiteful fade. Surprisingly good.

MNAle (173) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 14, 2017
Very dark, black even, with a 1 inch brown-tan thick, creamy-looking head that recedes gradually, leaving lacing slipping down the glass. Smoaky, roasted malt aroma with hints of sweet raisins. Moderate mouth feel. Initial taste hit is somewhat sweet, but it transitions quickly to a lightly roasted flavor. The initial flavor has a character I cant quite pin down... almost minty, but not really - maybe it is the wood others mention. The balance is provided with mild to somewhat more than mild bittering in the finish. Dont be mislead by the name; this is a porter/stout in all but name. Decent.

m.mahu (191) - Iasi, ROMANIA - MAR 8, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2017 Bottle. Pours pitch black with no head whatsoever. Burnt coffee, toasted malts, dark cocoa, roasted rye, molasses, burnt rubber, smoky notes. Full mouthfeel. There is some hops going on. Extremely good.

sjogro (3767) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2017
Bottle shared at home. Black with tan head. Sweet deep roasted chocolate malts, barley, chocolate, coffee candy, molasses, burnt match heads, black pepper (the aroma, not the spiciness), something fruity like brier. Over medium sweet and deep roasty, almost ashy, ground bitter. Over medium body, soft carbonation. Slick feel. Nice roasty bitter sweet finish.

Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Almost black with light brown head. Licorice, dark chocolate, sweet malts, light ash, some dusty nuts, cardboard, blackberries. Medium sweet and bitter. A bit over medium bodied with slick oily thick feel and soft carbonation. Nice!
