luvcasks (178) - USA - APR 16, 2006
Aroma: Sour, Spicy and Floral with some faint roastiness Appearance: Dusty brown to black with a large lasting tan to light brown head Flavor: Open with flavor of roasted grains and coffee (these were not apparent in the nose) the sour and spicy elements show up with great restraint Palate: Sightly spritzy, Roasty toasty flavors finishing dry (dangerously drinkable) Overall: Expect the unexpected, a Belgian Stout very unique and uncommon. I really like to surprise in the sense that for an a such a big beer it is surprisingly light. The aroma is not what you expect from a stout

Ziet er prachtig uit, intens zwart, met mooie schuimkraag! Heel fijne smaak en mooie balans. Karameltoetsen. Iets te gassy. Lekker maar weinig spectaculair.

Iznogud (2794) - 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 (3582) - 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 (1819) - 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.

Ei tm stoutmainen ollut. Vaikkakin hyv. Ruuan kanssa paremminkin kuin yksikseen. Jaakon ja Samin kanssa Tuulensuussa.

Kavu (4268) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 7, 2016
A small taste from a friend (bottle) @ Tuulensuu during the OKS Oktoberfest. Pours very dark brown with a high tan head. Aroma is roasted malts with some chocolate. Flavor is roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and hops. With a belgian twist. Great.

Night_Cap (119) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - SEP 25, 2016
Bottle 330ml - cellared for approximately 1-2 years. Served at room temperature. Pours a dark murky brown. Head is enormous, tanned, dense, and mostly lasting. Aroma is of dusted Belgian chocolates; lightly toasted brown bread, cooked brown sugar, blueberries, dried currants, plums, liquorice sticks, a touch of molasses and hints of leather. Flavour is extremely smooth and somewhat vinous, with a very light toasted/roasted bitterness; toasted wholegrain bread, sour grains, blueberries, blackberries, dried currants, liquorice chews (sweets), dark chocolate, horse blanket, and light notes of charcoal in the finish. Medium bodied, with lively carbonation, an oily texture and a long dry, toasty finish. ABV is EXTREMELY well hidden! Quite a decent drop, but a little thin for my liking.

SkillsFactory (590) - ITALY - SEP 18, 2016
Imbottigliata a luglio 2014, best before luglio 2016, aperta il 18 settembre 2016, 9% ABV. Tonaca di frate scura, schiuma nocciola chiaro copiosa, di aspetto "saponoso", di media persistenza. Aroma di caff, leggero cioccolato, elevata ossidazione, leggera liquirizia. Al palato prevale sempre lossidazione, che oltre il metallo pu ricordare la prugna secca, liquirizia, molto presente il caff che cede il passo ad una piacevole nota di cioccolato. Cioccolato che risulta presente anche nel finale insieme ad un amaro tostato ed erbaceo, sempre presenti le note ossidate, piacevoli note di legno. Corpo tra il medio ed il medio-pieno, carbonazione media, medio-bassa, di certo ha visto giorni migliori, ma risulta comunque piacevole.
