ElGaucho (2400) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JUN 15, 2006
Bottle. Belgian roasted malt. Smells a bit like a baltic porter, not unlike Baltika 6. Dark, basically opaque body with a large, tan head. Excellent lace. Floatilla visibile at the bottom of the glass when held to the light. Initial mouthfeel is strong, sweet, rich roasted caramel malt. Very nice. Carbonation is lively. This is a treat, could pass for a dessert beer. Excellent, yet not overly distinctive.

Skinnyviking (9325) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2006
Bottle. Beige high and lasting head. Black body. Spicy coffee/choccolate flavor plus alcohol aroma. First impression a bit sharp and bitter flavor. Later more pleasant chocclolate dominated coffee flavor. Alcohol contents well balanced.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2006
33 cl bottle. Yeast at the bottom. Pitch black colour with a huge rocky head. Aroma of smooth roastedness, liquoirice and hints of coffee. Very smooth and tasty flavour of roastedness combined with alcohol and a dry finish all this also have a touch of belgium yeast. Not bad at all.

Didnt seem all there this one, so maybe it hasnt traveled well. The aroma was a mix of raisins, chocolate and cleaning products. On tasting it was fairly sweet and quite thin, considering the abv. A shame, really, because its probably a very good drop.

eaglefan538 (3042) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 3, 2006
A collision of two great worlds: stouts and Belgians. Boy, this one was a tough pour and the head was huge and concave up (yes, thats a geeky term, but go stick it if you dont like it). Nice dark brown / black color underneath that head. The aroma was sweet and of chocolate mostly. The flavor started out like chocolate and was sweet with a touch of candy sugar. Finish was of coffee. Man, coffee, chocolate, and candy sugar all in one beer. Outstanding. Creamy and thick mouthfeel. Great stuff.

Nice deep, dark aroma of chocolate and nutty tones. Taste is a complex blend of chocolate, coffee, malt, some bittersweetness, and assorted spices. Dances around a bit on the palate with a nice crisp and dry finish.

rederic (3330) - montral, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 30, 2006
Deep black color, with a rocky tan-colored head, leaving nice lacing, yeasty fruitiness nose of raisins, plums, roasted malt accent, hint of molasses, chocolate milkshake, with a note of mocha in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied with a yeasty acidic dark roasted malt character, with a black roasted coffee beans accent, burnt toast, hint of sweet dark fruitiness, leading towards a burnt roastiness bitter finish.

I was very pleased in myself for ordering this beer, mostly because it was somewhat expensive, and I had the money to do so (but even better was it wasnt included on my check at the end of the meal!). At any rate, it poured very dark, black really, Aroma wasnt terribly sweet, but of coffee and yeast. Flavor was quite bitter, I wasnt really expecting that, I thought it would be more like LIon Stout, but it wasnt. Palate was a little thin, but definately a great sipping beer.

this was a bit surprising. pours a chalky dark brown with a massive greay head. aroma is chocolatey and has a bit of burnt tartness to it. Flavor is very much like that of Biropholie Imprial Stout...chocolate covered strawberries, slight coffee, and like zeswaft says...a bit of belgian yeast funk. Mouthfeel is smooth and starchy.

Zeswaft (1755) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 24, 2006
Interesting stout. Has a sweet kind of dark chocolate and woody aroma. Had a huge grey head and black color. Flavor is burnt coffee bitterness and a little belgian yeast. Pretty foreign, though its my second.
