ManVsBeer (8951) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle from Booths, Media City. Black, with no head. It doesnt have the strongest character for its style, but it has enough roasted malt in its aroma and taste to please with a slightly milky smooth texture.

Nocturne (1917) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2014
355ml bottle. Black with lots of brown head. Aroma is roasty with some smoke and chocolate accents. Quite creamy too. Theres a certain harshness to the taste of some dry stouts that I dont find here. Getting a faint hint of woodsmoke in the finish. Carbonation is much too high, which spoils it a bit. Despite that, its one of the better dry stouts Ive had.

chinchill (4527) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 20, 2014
12 oz bottle poured very dark brown, looking black and opaque in the glass. Weak, light brown head. Feel: medium body with light carbonation. Flavor: U.K. style stout with plenty of very dark roasted malt flavor with minimal burnt or char elements.

Garrold (4645) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2014
Bottle, three months out of date, found hiding in the cellar. Think it came from Morrisons. Very dark brown. Tan head, that only appears after a swirl. Vine fruits, and cocoa at the start. A little ash, and a wet chamois thing, too. In fact, a lot of the wet chamois. Taste is ashy dry. A little bitterness. Palate is thin. Too much carbonation, also. Finishes dry, and long bitter. A hint of sweet, on the lips, right at the end.

Silvan7 (1175) - Samarate, ITALY - OCT 6, 2014
Bottle @ home. Marrone opalescente schiuma beige grossolana, poco persistente. Aroma tostato, fondi di caff, salamoia di olive, un po di tabacco. Poco complesso. Gusto secco, amaro, tostato, di caff, tabacco, poco luppolata, o quantomeno con luppoli non propriamente amaricanti. Poco calda, poco carbonata. Consistenza "appiccicosa". Non molto equilibrata, ma abbastanza armonica.

SlovakSniper (5315) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 23, 2014
Noire et tte beige comme le dsert. Au nez, caf, malts rtis et caramel fonc. En bouche, malts torrfis, fume, caf surchauff et lgre acidit. Au palais, corps plutt mince, effervescence normale et texture presque aqueuse. Finale extra sche bien noire.

N3lson1 (1005) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - AUG 29, 2014
From twelve ounce bottle to pint. Beautiful jet black color. Decent light brownish, thin head. Great aromas and tastes of chocolately smoothness! Great complexity while keeping it simple and easy.

ABT_S54 (352) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2014
33cl bottle served in a Trappist glass. Pours a dark brown to black colour with a short-lived beige head. Aroma is dry chocolate and burnt notes. Good mouthfeel for the ABV and very flavoursome (chocolate, hint of mocha and a lasting dryness) for what it is. Overall a very good effort. Probably my favourite sub 5% beer.
