Zilb (266) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - APR 23, 2017
Pression au Long Hop soirée Ogp. Noire/marron comme un café au lait. Faible mousse pas de carbo. Arôme léger café (mais bue froide). Assez légère. Manque de corps et de goût. Je m’attendais à une bière plus tranchée et avec de l’amplitude.

Hop_Hedonist (557) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 19, 2017
Can - watery insipid crap - the barest lick of roasted malt - can’t believe I used to like this when I was a lad - strictly an entry level brew.

midovark (794) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - APR 18, 2017
Draught. Pours black with long lasting head. Slight coffeey roasted aroma with the same notes in taste with creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation and light body.

mmmeinike (94) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 13, 2017
Klassiker. Mørke brun, næsten sort med hvidt skum. Malt og svag kaffe i duften. Let bitterhed i eftersmagen.

The classic. Had to try it, not bad, but not good enough against the coming craft beers.

dutchdarthvader (47) - NETHERLANDS - APR 11, 2017
Vrij neutrale geur. Mooie diep donker rode kleur die zwart af steekt met een fantastische zachte schuimkraag. Die je meteen doet verheugen om een slok te willen nemen. Het glijdt naar binnen waar naar een zacht bittertje proeft. Met een koffie achtig nasmaak met slagroom. Dit is niet alleen marketing deze stout maakt waarom ie wereldwijd zo populair is.

GriZZZly (153) - - APR 11, 2017
Ar: palone slody, mocna slodowosc, nuta chmielu, troche karmelu, intensywnosc srednia. Wyg: Totalnie, nieprzejrzyscie czarne, jak smola, swietna piana, niespotykanie i nieslychanie drobna, aksamitna, trwala, wybitnie brudzi szklo. Sm: Dosc wodniste, dobra solidna palonosc, odrobina kawy, wysycenie praktycznie zerowe - niespotykanie niskie, lekka palona goryczka, swietna gesta kremowa konsystencja. Bardzo subtelne, ale ladnie pokazuje najwazniejsze cechy stout’a. Pos: palona goryczka, dluga, odrobine zalega, palony slod. Slusznie zostalo klasykiem.

Primekick (25) - POLAND - APR 10, 2017
Czarne, nieprzejrzyste z długo utrzymującą się puszystą pianą. Słaby aromat palonych słodów. W smaku trochę kawy i palone słody, Fajna kremowa konsystencja, chociaż mogła by być mniej wodnista.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2017 Birra dal colore nero. Schiuma beige, fine e persistente. Al naso malto tostato, caffe e toffe. Al palato corpo pieno, non carbonata con note che ricordato sentori già sentiti al naso. Birra estremamente versatile dalle ostriche alla torta al cioccolato.

44 cl can bought from Lidl. Pours dark brown color with beige creamy head. Aroma and taste are similar, coffee and roasted malt, with a creamy and milky head. Body is medium, texture is creamy, medium carbonation, medium bitter finish. Overall a good beer.
