Rune (12840) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2008
330ml bottle bought at GBBF and consumed at a hotel room in Earls Court. Opaque, and dark as the night. Huge, brownish bubbling head with satisfying duration, leaving nice laceworks on the glass. Woody, dark malts in aroma. Complex flavoured with initial spicy, roasted malt followed by sweet prunes and finishing with a dry bitter touch. Maybe a bit overpowering in the mouth (08.08.2008)

Bov (12636) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 28, 2002
dark black colour, creamy dark head which quickly disappears; complex aroma of black chocolate, plum and raisins, tart, some acidity, lot of character, nice bitter and slightly fruity finish

thewolf (12605) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 12, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2007 Pours almost completely black with a big creamy brown head that doesn’t go away easily :o) Slightly coffee aroma and a lot of roasted malts. Actually the aroma seems kind of sweet, with a feeling og dark syrup or dark sugars. The beer starts sweet with coffee flavours and an apparent freshness seldom seen in such a stout. The pang comes later, when the sweetness resides and the roasty malts come to the forefront.

Sammy (12212) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2005
Nice head with bubbles in foam. Malty sweet, vanila, milk, good hops. Very drinkable and serviceable stout. This would be a standard beer for me if always available, which reflects that big stouts get higher ratings on complexity and thickness, but this is nice.

Pinball (12157) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2008
EBF2008, aroma licorice, medium strength, nice, black with brown head, think flavor of english licorice, very faint banana, other flavors too, nice brew. overall it’s not extreme, but very well done.

"poured near black with a big fluffy light brown head. nice to look at, nicer to smell. the aroma isn’t over the top, butsubdued...still nice, though. chocolate malt balls, roasted coffee. you get a touch of smoke and maybe a hint of tobacco in the flavor too. ton of milky smooth chocolate. ridiculously smooth and deceptively lighter body for an 8% stout. one of the most drinkable stouts i’ve ever had. this could be a daily drinker in the colder months."
