nimbleprop (7946) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 17, 2008
On tap at Messrs Maguire in Dublin. Pours an opaque, heavy looking black with a thick, creamy white head. No real carbonation. Aroma is suspiciously absent... slight roasted aroma if you search. Flavor is strong with a healthy dose of chocolate plus plenty of toast and grain. Creamy in the mouth. Great session beer and by far the best they had on tap while I was in.

KM (416) - Troms, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2008
Tap. Almost black body. Creamy off white head. Sweet roasted aroma. Hints of tar and old smoke. Dry flavour, but also sweet, especially in the finish. The finish also reveals a tiny chocolate flavour. Like a Guinness with more aroma and flavour. (Messrs. Maguire Pub, Dublin, 05.05.08)

Draft at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007. A pitch black beer with a dense brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of roasted malt and lighter notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of roasted malt, leading to a dry and slightly bitter finish. The body is a bit thin.

McHughsKBR (6) - IRELAND - APR 22, 2008 does not count
On tap-Messrs, nice, clean, dark ruby colour. Chocolatey aroma, deliciously sweet. Chocolate flavour, mild roast coffee taste, somewhat vanilla sweetness, lacking slightly in body, but very tasty, and very easy drinking.

larsga (7444) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2008
Medium brown-beige shiny creamy everlasting head. Opaque black body, barely dark red-brown at edges. Roasty burnt vanilla and caramel aroma with coffee notes. Dry burnt roasty milky coffee taste with spicy caramelly notes. Long, lingering aftertaste with an emphasis on the burntness, with notes of licorice. Some pepper and spice, too. Mild mouthfeel. Nice, but not too special. (0.3l draft at the brewpub.)

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAR 23, 2008
Nitro keg @ Easter Beer Festival, Franciscan Well. Typical nitro keg dry stout really. Not as dry as it could have been, roasted flavours a bit too mild. Poor enough.

fiulijn (20063) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 27, 2007
Nitro keg at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007
Dark brown color; creamy head (of course). Light aroma, some watery roasted malt flavor, mild, but probably affected by the nitro; there is some dark chocolate malt at the end. Not bad, but without the nitro would be better...
