melush (4737) - SPAIN - JAN 9, 2017
Bottle 33cl. @ 32GreatPower, Seville, Spain. A: Dark brown. T: Roasted malt, caramel, chocolate, coffee, licorice.

BlazerT (1257) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JAN 6, 2017
Bottle. Snifter. Dark brown with big, semi-thick, frothy, light brown head. Poor head retention and lacing. Aroma is moderately to heavy malty, roasted, caramel, brown sugar and moderately bitter. Also some notes of grains, dates, raisins, chocolate and coffee. Taste is moderately bitter and moderately sweet. Some kind of acidity from the middle of degustation. Medium body, watery to oily texture, average carbonation, finish is malty, semi-bitter, dark fruits. Summary: Overall not that bad brew, palate could be better. Nose is too aggressive, fenol-like and Belgian-like.

Beerowl80 (389) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2016

CraftBeerNick (2831) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2016
Bottle at home, 8th December 16. Pours black, and lovely, head over spilling. Aroma is berry fruit, liquorice and dark chocolate. Taste is Black Forest gateau, berry sourness, liquorice, dark chocolate, cherry, nice. Lovely gear.

seynie (413) - Tienen, BELGIUM - DEC 4, 2016

90 (819) - BELGIUM - NOV 20, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2017 First Rating: 11/01/2017. 3.6. Ziet er prachtig uit, intens zwart, met mooie schuimkraag! Heel fijne smaak en mooie balans. Karameltoetsen. Iets te gassy. Lekker maar weinig spectaculair. Second Rating 9/10/2017. 3.6. Pops open. Too much carbonation. This carbonation haunts this beer... Aroma is caramel, hint of roast in the back, tad berries, mineral. Palate is fizzy due to carbonation. Finish is slightly sour with roasted elements.

Iznogud (4366) - CROATIA - NOV 6, 2016
Bottle, 330 ml from Beergium, shared with JFK10000. Pours black with medium light brown head. Roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, sweet, fruit, likely cherries giving the beer fruity sour twist, very interesting. Medium to full bodied. Nice one.

jamestulloch (4330) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 30, 2016
Bottle from Cork & Cask. Dark brown body with a massive beige head. Faint lacing. Aroma of Dr Pepper, rum, brown sugar and cherry. Flavour of fig, caramel and treacle. Medium body with a fizzy, frothy mouthfeel. A tasty, unusual Stout - much sharper than I was expecting. More sugary than malty... and far too fizzy.

mariuspoenari (2989) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 17, 2016
33cl bottle at home. Dark brown pour with an impossibly tall tan head with surprisingly good retention. Notes of roasted malts, bitter cherries, oak barrel and macerated cherries, some vanilla, cocoa, chocolate and just a bit of coffee. Medium body, high carbonation and a roasty bitter-sweet finish.
