Koelschtrinker (20388) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Der stark karbonisierte Antrunk offenbart bereits angenehme Röstnoten, das Bier ist insgesamt durch den Hopfen aber frisch. Später malziger aber nicht röstiger, tiefgehend malzig. Vollmundig, gelungen. Ein gutes Stout mit röstigem Beginn – gut. 9/9/10/9/9/9

0.33L bottle from de Bierkoning (june 2010). A slow, never-ending gusher. Looks ok in the glass. A finger of beige foam, upon a murky brownish red body. Dry cocoa, papery hops on the nose. Light malt body. Faint bitter and pepper tones. Quite full for a 3.9 per center. Dry chocolate ending. A decent beverage. gunnfryd (14869) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 7, 2011
Bottle. Amber colour with a beige head. Aroma is roasted malt, caramel, cocoa. Flavour is dry, roasted malt, yeast, cocoa, coffee, apple. OK beer. larsga (7539) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 26, 2011
Big brown head. Hazy opaque deep dark brown body. Roasty chocolate and earth aroma with coffee notes. Dry roasty earthy taste with metal and soot notes. Thinnish body. Fizzy mouthfeel obscures the flavour. Dry peppery chocolate and earth aftertaste with metal notes. Not bad, but not very impressive, either. (0.75l bottle, Meny Grønland Torg, Oslo.) kerolasa (409) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2011
Malty smell. Quite dark brown color, but not black. First taste is bitter, rest is mostly malty and a bit sweet. Somewhat bread like aroma. Quite nice, but not super awesome. I definitely could consider this a side food.

Pours black with some red shine. Large head that stays. Aroma a bit sour combined with roasted malts and some bitter hops. Taste starts smoked/roasted and finished quite rapidly with a bitter aftertaste. Not much of a palate which makes this beer not so interesting. 50belair (3643) - Florida, USA - MAR 14, 2011
Bottle courtesy of darkguardian. Talk about a gusher, Holy Toledo. Tons of yeast sediment. Thin, watery, and bitter. Not my thing at all.. hopscotch (11078) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Bottle (dregs)… Murky brown ale with no head. The aromatics provide understated notes of cocoa, toffee, vanilla and worn leather. Medium-bodied and milky with only trace carbonation. Well-balanced and very flavorful for a small beer – nuances of tree nuts, chocolate and toffee. Finishes fairly crisp and lightly bitter.

Bottle 330ml at home. Pours almost pitch black with too lively tan head which wouldn’t stop pouring out of the bottle. Aroma is coffee, cocoa, oat. Taste is light sweet, light bitter. Medium body, thin to oily, soft to average carbonation. anders37 (26605) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2011
Bottle. Pours a dark brown almost black color with a small off-white head. Has a roasted malty light coffee aroma with hints of coffee. Roasted malty coffee and chocolate flavor with some hoppy hints. Has a roasted malty coffee finish.
