Papsoe (25056) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2006
(Bottle 33 cl) Pours a clear mahogany with a warm, reddish tint and a frothy, light brown head. Sweetish malty with some lightly perfumy and spicy notes. Medium body only - the alcohol is very well hidden - with a rather high carbonation. Lightly burned, malty accents and a very high fruitiness. A soft Stout - in style not that far from a Belgian Brune or Dubbel. 041006

Black with a dark brown head. Aroma is sweet, roasted malt, coffee, dried fruit and yeasty. Flavor is very sweet and moderate bitter. Dry and roasted bitter finish. A good mix between a stout and a Belgian strong ale. A bit too sweet though. 270511

chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2004
A bit of a beast. Deep brown colour. Powerful malt aroma - rather reminiscent of neat malt extract (and I don’t mean that in a bad way). Very rich coffee and chocolate flavour with some plummy/pruney fruit. Full outhfeel with a powerful alcoholic, bittersweet finish. Not too sweet though. I like it, but couldn’t take too much of it. Bottled at GBBF 2004.

Koelschtrinker (21489) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 19, 2011
ZBF 2008 Voluminöser Malzgeruch, etwas alkoholisch, was sofort von Röstmalz überdeckt wird. Röstiger Malzantrunk, eine leichte Süße mildert die hintergründige Bitterkeit. Erkennbar hopfig, angenehm harmonisch, die Bitterkeit wird zum trockenen Abgang hin stärker. Test vom 11.3.2008, Gebinde: Fass Noten: 13,11,10,12,-,11 - 11,21

fiulijn (21214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 23, 2005
Dark color; huge creamy head, beige. Strong liquorice aroma. Good Strong Ale, with some more roasted malt dryness than usual. Roasted nuts; a lot of liquorice. Strong, dry ending bitterness. Very good as Foreign Stout, below standards for De Dolle.

3.5
Theydon_Bois (20600) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Bottle at Kunstemaecker, Steenkerke, 17/10/14. Rich mahogany brown with a big old tan coverin that retains very well. Nose is light roast, dates, fruit cake, liught cocoa, oatmeal tones. Taste comprises oatmeal biscuit, light spice, hint metallic, earthy, chocolate tones. Medium bodied, light prickley carbonation, drying close. Solid export stout, the ABV is well integrated.

saxo (19370) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2007
Bottle. Nice big long lasting head. Aroma is thick with roast malt. Taste is likewise. Good long finish.

4.5
harrisoni (19310) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2005
330ml bottle from the brewery. Dark brown/black with lasting thin dark tan head. This is an absolutely intense stout. Tar, liquorice and bitter dark chocolate on the aromas. God, this is intense. Almost primeval. Mouthfeel has the sour notes of a stout with some carbonation. Finish is like swallowing 200g of dark chocollate in one go. Definitely pleasant but it does feel as though you have been mugged by a lump of bitter chocolate wrapped around a prune brick. One hell of a beer though.

2.6
mcberko (18925) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 4, 2011
330mL bottle, split with Matts_Property, pours black with a towering, lingering, foamy beige head. Aroma is quite funky for a stout, with high acidity, some hops, light toasted malt and metallic notes. Flavour is also quite metallic, with iodine, burnt malt, lots of yeast, with a stale, metallic finish. I don’t get the ratebeer average for this - stale, metallic and much too carbonated. Not enjoyable.
