Emeister84's rating

Emeister84 (2479) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Aromas of coffee, chocolate, tobacco, tar, molasses, and dark floral notes. Black with lasting, brown head. Dry, with the chocolatey flavors delivering a subtle sweet character, and with roasty, earthy, and strong attributes, though no detectable boozy flavors. Full bodied with low carbonation, very smooth, velvety, and the finish lingers on and on with roasted, dark chocolate, coffee, and potting soil-like tones.

Zlotta (3196) - Hagen / Bonn, GERMANY - JUN 13, 2017
0.33 l bottle from ’Bier & Beer’, best before December 2018. Black with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, beige head. Sweetish-malty, just slightly roasty and a bit fruity aroma of dark chocolate, raisins, prunes and mocca. Rather sweet, malty, slightly roasty and a bit fruity taste of dark chocolate, mocca, praline, hazelnut, raisins and prunes, followed by a medium long, moderately roasty-bitter, slightly earthy-dry finish. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, very soft carbonation. Almost a bit thin for that abv, but all in all worth its merits, a true classic.

jjsint (3002) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2017
Bottle from Beers of Europe, drunk at home. Dark purplish black with a small foamy tan head. Blackberry and raw sugarcane in the aroma. Sweet, sweet taste with malts that are roasted to hell and back but never tastes burned. Smoky chocolate and plum swirls around in my mouth. Long finish with a silky mouthfeel. Tobacco and slivovitz in the aftertaste. Wow.

ANZUShophunter (426) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 7, 2017
From bottle in porter glass. Pours black with 2 finger head of beautifully symmetric bubbles. Aroma of malt choc, licorice, and a bit of booze; rich taste with forward bitterness. Built to travel.

33cl bottle purchased @ Captain Houblon. Belle robe ébène. Attaque sur le malt grillé et le café. Equilibre parfait tout en rondeur.

caribou43 (990) - Lausanne/Sevilla/Lima, SWITZERLAND - APR 25, 2017
I bought this nectar of birds at the drink of the world in Geneva, I drank it at the hotel room in Paris, before to sleep, such a good idea to find yours delightful dream of penelope for the night. The body is a perfect face of stout, black body intense, thin white and brown head, regular carbonation for the style. The taste is well balanced, I could notice a touch of alcool but it is following by a really nice sweetness and we smell strong notes of grape sugar, roasted malt, small touch of cacao, chocolate, some hop and a perfect balance arriving at your mouth, good relation price/quality.

ebone1988 (1856) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - APR 22, 2017
For the book. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, dry, leather, good. Appearance is dark brown, light brown head, poured thinnish. Taste is dry, roasted malt, dark fruit, slight smoke, coffee, chocolate, I like it. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy body, light carbonation, lightly smoky roasted malt aftertaste. Overall, this is easily the standard for the style.
