Ktwse (4240) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2013
Pours black with a finger of frothy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, german sausage, leather - a bit weak but could be because it was too cold. Taste is lightly balanced sweet, some vanilla, some chocolate and just a hint of coffee. Body is fairly light but creamy with low carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nstan svart l med ett ljusbrunt skum. Doft av choklad, lakrits och mrka br. I smaken s trder det fram en vinsyrlighet som tillsammans med de rostade kaffetonerna tyvtrr fr mig att tnka p gammalt surt kaffe som sttt alldeles fr lnge.

Aroma is very smooth, oak , sweet grape, chocolate, licorice, dried dark fruits, notes of smoke. Taste is bitter chocolate, semi-sweet and finishes with smokey grape notes leaving a chocolaty bitterness. Medium body.

Damn tasty. RIch, toasty and a touch of roast. Chocolate, some oak, tannins and a dry roast finish. Very tasty.

TimE (5373) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 5, 2013
Pitch black color, med brown color head. Dark chocolate, a touch of oak and grape in the nose. The mouth isnt too roasted with treacles, coffee, oak and moderate amount of acidity. The grape notes hit the back of the throat and add a nice bit of complexity. Roasty, somewhat dry finish.

humlelala (1348) - DENMARK - APR 4, 2013
(12 oz can from Systembolaget; BBD: December 2013) Pours black with thick, creamy tan head. Decent retention and regeneration. Aroma is smooth roasted malt perhaps somewhat remniscient of a Lion stout (my only frame of reference when it comes to foreign stout). Fruity estery hints in there as well. Creamy texture, medium body, soft carbonation and a short, warming and slightly dry finish. Theres some dry bitterness in the finish too. Where there would normally be residual sweetness one finds instead something like a slightly acidic fruit juice. This gives the beer a slightly odd twist for a stout. Taste is estery and boozy with only hints of roasted malt. A bit odd.

Lite torr rök. Strävhet och viss sötma. Inget som imponerar. Krystad. Knappast elegant.
