Bierkrug (2129) - - MAR 13, 2011
750 ml bottle in Germany. I got this bottle from Chris himself. Pours murky dark brown with a huge biege head. Dark malty, light herbl hopps and roasted flavor. Roasted malty and burnt wood notes. Lingering dark malty into the palate. A nice beer ends a bit tart for me but still nice.

FatPhil (17079) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 18, 2011
750ml bottle (Alvinne webshop)
6 On opening a fruity estery aroma, but also some acetone. In the glass it’s a bit of a stodgy chocolatey mashiness. Some soy.
4+ Slightly cloudy dark brown. Large dark bready head, fairly persistent. Some bits in suspension are the only downside.
7 Rich burnt taste, quite a lot of liquorice, bitter and barky. Salty almost. Bitterness is quite tangy. Slightly sweet, but well attenuated.
4 Smooth and full palate, pleasant soft carbonation. Finish is very bitter and liquoricey, saccharine as well. Something almost buttery too.
13 Very solid beer. Not so much a typical stout at all. Bitterness and liquorice perhaps a bit over-the top. Covers 9% very well. Glad I had Minna and Janne to share this with, 750ml of too much for two people.

bierkoning (13687) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2013
From bottle. Black and opague. Roast, licorice and onions in the aroma. Sharp citrus flavor, roasty with coffee and licorice. Very tasty, but out of balance.

Travlr (26091) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - FEB 25, 2010
750 ml bottle at Peiffeschof. Off menu, recommendation of the barman to pair with local goat cheese. Clear maroon with a massive beige head and phenomenal lacing. Aroma of chocolate and butterscotch. Flavor has cocoa powder,dark roasted malts and toffee. Slight bitter finish, but it’s mostly malt.

Theydon_Bois (20628) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2013
Bottle shared at Borefts ’13, thanks to Kamiel (Countbeer), 27/09/13. Light black with a thin tan head, floaties are evident. Nose is roast malts, slightly lactic notes, cocoa, earthiness, mineral notes. Taste comprises cocoa powder, mineral bite, roast malts, dark fruits, tarte fruit tang. Medium bodied with bite, fine carbonation, dry finish. Ok - nothing I’d revist.

Bov (13221) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 1, 2013
courtesy of Carole and Anna - black beer with a quite long lasting dark beige foam; roasted aroma of mocha and vanilla, some undefined spices; medium-bodied, pretty fair sweetness underneath; finishes dry and bitter with a strong spicy, medicinal herbs-like touch - a bit weird
