SamP01 (662) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 2, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy dark brown with a small quickly dissipating tan head. Aroma is of dry dark roasted malt, chocolate with a bit of dark dried fruity esters. Taste is sweet dry roasted chocolate malt flavored with some mild bitterness. Palate is a medium body with some good carbonation. Finishes with a dry roasted dark cacao malt with some bitterness on the end for balance. Overall not the best in class but a good respectable brew.

Ron (3850) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Black pour with a little off whte head with some lace on the sides of the glass and rising carbonation bubbles. Sourish aromas, mild roast as well. The mouthfeel is below average. The taste is a mild stout, with roast right there. Sourish roast, a tad astringent, in the finish.

MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 10, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2013 hazy dark red-sepia, head becomes wispy white island with thicker ring. Nose shows plum, cocoa, and dust, refreshing thanks to a fresh kick of grassy hops. Very dry flavor shows heavy cocoa and grass at front, mid clay and cake, bit overtaken by dry, heavy carbonation, light dust and chocolate in finish. Very nice and light, but a softer body would allow for larger profile.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Tap at CK. Pours a clear, deep ruby to black. Beige mocha bubbles. Nose is thick mocha and coffee. Dense ganache and cocoa. Taste is lighter, sparkling, tangy. Clean and roasty. No malt presence. Mild earth. Palate is a bit weak. Very sessionable. Amazing richness and roast for the low abv. Taste gains oil and black cherry. Palate is richer and clean. Very good. +1 for low abv and huge presence.

A bit brown in color. Smells pretty decent. This is nice. A solid dry stout flavor. Not too heavy. An easy way to start the friday stout beer tasting.

Swaroga (2206) - Warszawa, POLAND - JUL 11, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2013 15cl sample. Black/brown with medium, tanned head. NOSE : fresh coffee, orange zest; black chocolate, nuts, lactic aromas. SIP : medium body with moderate carbonation. Smooth. The beer is moderately sweet with strong flavor of burned malts. It gets dry and bitter. both hops and burned malts mix into a bitter finish. Well hopped, the beer develops metallic and zest like aftertaste together with coffee like dry feeling. OVERALL : Fruity and fresh for a stout, it is easy to drink. I would love to try it on tap.

On Tap at Alewife for my anniversary dinner with the wife. Deep dark chocolate pour. Aroma is full of wet coffee grounds and belgian yeast. A dry stout with a surprising amount of belgian yeast. Really clean. Not overpowering. In fact, mellow flavors overall, but delicious.
