BlackHaddock (8095) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2017
8th Dec 2017. 330ml bottle into a lovely 'Kasteel' stemmed glass at my daughters place in Laguna Niguel, California. Bought from the local BevMo along with a few more beers to try while on holiday. Dark and clean body, decent tanned topping. Malty and full flavoured, semi-sweet with a good hop presence that kept the sweetness in check. Really enjoyed this. hman43 (1957) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - NOV 4, 2017
It pours dark brown with a brown head. It has a thick head that is light brown with moderate retention. It has a sweet rich malty chocolate aroma to begin with. There is a bit of roast in the background. In addition, there is a very low fruit note. There is a balance in the flavor that is more towards the roasted malt with the chocolate in the background. There are low notes of fruit. The finish is a balance between the dry roast and a hint of sweetness. It has a moderate body with moderately low carbonation that is a bit silky. Overall, this is a showcase of roast and chocolate with a tinge of sweetness throughout the taste. flying_pig (1695) - SCOTLAND - OCT 16, 2017
350ml Can from Liquor Mountain, Kyoto (¥246):tiong (7831) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 10, 2017
An okay Japanese stout that featured some pleasant roasted malts & some interesting smoked flavours in the early going, although the latter was fleeting. The beer was balanced but basic with some coffee & chocolate coming through at times too, definitely worth a try if you're in Japan but I'm not entirely sure it's one I'd put on the 1001 beers list.

mzaar (3823) - Varberg, SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2017
Nose: caramel liquid barley malt, light roast, hints of nutty. (lvl-8)-pungency, much stronger as it warms
Attack: dull crisp, soft light creamy, sweet caramel malt impression
Mid-palate: flat-tingly, (lvl-5-sweetness), molasses barley malt, light roast caramel malt, nutmeg, biscuity
Finish: hints of chocolate, lingering nutty-woody light bitter, cola
Summary: A very easy-to-drink 7%er stout with a solid balance of sweet and roasted malt. Slightly heavy malty sweet by the end but there’s enough complexity to balance it out. It lacks a bit of creaminess and push at the finish.
