appiantiqua (131) - Lyon, FRANCE - OCT 17, 2016
Dguste dans un verre Charles Quint. Temprature de dbut 7 8. Magnifique robe brun sombre opaque surmonte dune fine mousse beige assez tenace; bonne carbonatation. Nez trs dlicat sur le chocolat avec une touche vineuse(madre,vin cuit) et un soupon de levure trs agrable. Le got est fantastique et combine parfaitement les saveurs de type Chocolat/cacao/caf avec les notes fruites(prunes,figues) le tout dans une parfaite harmonie douceur/amertume. La richesse et la complexit de cette bire nous obligeront la regoter prochainement ce qui ne sera pas une pnible affaire!!! La finale est trs longue et plaisante et nous ramne toutes les flaveurs en ajoutant la chaleur apprciable dun alcool idalement intgr. Un merveilleux stout!!! 18,5/20

I was only going to include pre-Ratebeer beers as ticks, but I want the country on my map so I am breaking my own rules! Better than I expected. A perfectly nice stout, even if its not particularly interesting.

Jounipel (2) - FINLAND - SEP 9, 2016 does not count
This stuff what one couldnt call a stout even with a good will is way overrated. It tastes like the same breweries strong lager- same tastes of dark rum, coffee, pear, apple and light malt. This one was way more than just a disappointment - this one was pure waste of money and time.

Raistlin (351) - London, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2016
Pours dark black colour and has big tanned head that leaves lots of lacing behind. Lasts long too. Not sweet like other stouts at all, and you cant tell it has over 8 percent of alcohol. Aroma is of roasted barley, coffee, chocolate, and dark fruit. Tastes of dark chocolate, roasted barley, espresso with a sourness and burnt notes. This beer was so smooth with a slick medium body and low carbonation. Good at hiding its alcohol and very warming.

labeerinthum (663) - Milano, ITALY - AUG 17, 2016
Bottiglia. Nel gusto al naso c il sapore forte dellorzo tostato che sopravanza tutti gli altri. Lintensit olfattiva pi che normale e la persistenza olfattiva apprezzabile. Il cappello di schiuma cremosa, aderente, dalla buona tenuta e con merletti a contornare il vetro come finale. La grandezza delle bollicine medio-fine. La carbonazione media. Il colore scuro impenetrabile. Il corpo pieno. Lamaro deciso. Lintensit gustativa elevata e la persistenza gustativa buona.Il gusto piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono luppolate e di tostato. Il finale lungo, secco e asciutto. Il retrogusto di media intensit. Laroma in bocca riporta sentori di miele, cioccolato, caff, frutta secca, pane tostato. Alcol presente non invadente.

googleimage83 (88) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2016
Pours opaque dark brown, with small coffee-coloured head that doesnt last beyond the first few sips. Firm chocolate and butterscotch punch on the nose, some hints of cherry and grape. Taste is roasty and somewhat creamy, with some brown sugar sweetness - not getting the fruity notes as much. Leafy hop presence, finish is comparatively dry Slightly chalky mouthfeel. Solid, worthwhile stout.

ndburns (190) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2016
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours almost black with a thick foamy tan head. Aroma of fresh bread, molasses, dried fruit. Taste is similar, some coffee notes, very sweet up front but balanced with some bitterness.

lokis333 (441) - Birai, LITHUANIA - JUL 31, 2016
Jet black color with medium coffee brown foam. Aromas, dark chocolate malts with subtle hints of alcohol and liqueur (Baileys), dark strong coffee with tones of roasted coffee beans and light coffee smoke followed by light fruity sour tick at the end. Palate, full body with very thick and creamy texture leaving deep roasted smoke finish. Taste, is creamy and smokey of chocolate, coffee beans with this interesting somewhat milky but fruity sour-ish end to it that is interesting. Overall, interesting heavy and full bodied beer with nice smooth creamy smoked coffee taste.

nazzty (1271) - dkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUL 31, 2016
Way too sweet and oily for my taste. It tastes like the heaviness from imperial stout have married the sweetness of a brown ale. I tried it with food and by itself to notice if there were any difference. It was and the brew works better with food, even better if there are spicy flavors which takes away some of the heavy and bready notes from the beer.
