bergstaden (2987) - Røros, NORWAY - JUL 24, 2017
Black with a brown head - Malt aroma with some notes of roasted malt - Malt body with some roasted flavours with hints of chocolate flavours - Malt with some orasted not6tes goes into the finish with some bitterness - This was nice

Maakun (5591) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2017
Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Almost black with dark beige head. Licorice, coffee, lots of roast, light red berries, cocoa beans. Light sweet, under medium bitter and again light sour. Over medium bodied. It’s a bit weird, not bad at all but not something I’d drink a lot of, a bit too much sour coffee.

sjogro (4174) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2017
Bottle shared at home. Big thanks to Slijterij Paauwenburg for this treat! Black with tan head. Sweet roasted malts, coffee berries, toffee, taffy, hints of kopi luwak, chocolate, licorice, laurel. Moderate sweet and bitter. Over medium body, bit watery, bit creamy, nice stout.

zvsn (2096) - ISRAEL - APR 14, 2017
Bottle sample, thanks Max. Brown-black with a big beige head. Aroma is roasted with notes of chocolate and coffee. Sweet, roasted, caramel, chocolate, soy, prunes. Medium bodied, a bit too carbonated. Nice.

DSG (14829) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 13, 2017
Bottle sample at Ariel’s place. Thanks Max. Black with a tan head. Chocolate, roast, a bit of soy sauce, some coffee, a bit of dark fruits, sweet, chewy, quite full-bodied, rounded. Really good.

tricksta_p (4663) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2017
Bottle from Beergium. Aroma is roasted malt, caramel, some chocolate and coffee, touch of ash and tobacco, notes of dried dark fruits and mild liquorice. Flavour is medium sweet and light bitter. Above medium body with lively carbonation. Agreeable Stout, a bit mild for the style.

Pours black with a beige head, aroma of chocolate, cherry, orange, flavor is bitter with chocolate, coffee, caramel, toffee, medium bodied

Fules (1233) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - FEB 24, 2017
Kicsi, nem túl tartós hab, fekete szín. Csokoládés, aszalt gyümölcsös illatvilág, némi konyakos beütéssel. Csokis, pörkölt malátás, aszalt gyümölcsös ízvilág, halvány kávés beütéssel. Közepesen testes, közepesen szénsavas, közepesen keserű. Jól összerakott, kellemes stout.

Mister_Li (1376) - GERMANY - DEC 21, 2016
Schwarz mit reichlich dunkelbraunem Schaum. Röstmalzig, Kakao, dunkle Schokolade, etwas Karamell und Vanille.

dmctaster (90) - Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2016
Black with a dark brown quickly dissipating head(likely due to age). Aroma of licorce and roasted chocolate malts. Taste is caramel, and roasted malts. Alcohol taste is somewhat noticeable. I think it is getting old.
