CapedBrewsader (265) - Brasschaat, BELGIUM - AUG 27, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2008 33cl bottle: Pours inky black with a massive creamy and dark toffee head. Brown sugar sweetness wofts from the glass hints of chocolate, and licorice and caramel. There is an herbal vein running through the sweetness that turns slightly earthy. A little roast comes through the sweetness but not a whole lot. A cola-like sweetness hits you up front with licorice and chocolate in the back. Perhaps there is even a bit of black cherry and raspberry. This is a very sweet stout. Not much roast but a lot of fruit, including a slight green apple, and raw sugar. Flavor-wise, it is a bit one sided but there is just enough to keep you from being bored. Mouthfeel is full-bodied but seems lighter than what you would expect from the aroma and flavor, but thats a good thing. If it was any heavier it would be undrinkable. Slightly sticky with a looong cane sugar and caramel finish.

SHIG (4952) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUL 31, 2007
Bottle: Poured black in color with a thick creamy light brown head. Sweet fruit/berry with some malt. Sweet metallic cola like taste with a licorice finish. Not impressive for something marketed as a stout.

JoeinDahlem (1479) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 19, 2007
On tap @ Erasmus. Darkest head Ive ever seen, creamy brown like milk chocolate atop a straight-up black beer. Gorgeous. Too bad it goes downhill from there. Malty, faint sour-cola aroma. Cola sweet and slightly tart, with a lightly malty backdrop. A bit dirty and tangy in the aftertaste. Too thin and wet to be a stout. Nearly quaffable though, if it wasnt for that tangy, chemical edge. But its so pretty! Too bad.

Miksu (5046) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - JUL 15, 2007
Draught at the Hotel Erasmus, Brugge. Black color with very dark creamy head. Burnt aroma reminescent of grilled meat. Some fruity and toffeish aroma in the background. Very sweet flavor which hides much of the roastedness. Some sourness and oud bruin -like flavors. A bit sugary. Interesting contrast between sweet and sour flavors and roastedness.

larsga (7478) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 3, 2007
Huge dark brown coarse head shrinks slowly. Opaque black body. Faint spicy licorice aroma. Sweet licorice taste with no real resistance, more like a soft drink. No aftertaste. Sharpish mouthfeel. Its OK, but kind of boring. No reason to get very excited about this. (0.33l bottle. Bottled November 2005.)

A roaste malts taste and to sweet make this bottled beer a less then average beer. Tasted also an older version with same results. Although it was only 3 years old you could tast already that the beer was already older

skortila (5685) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2007
Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate some fruits. Black coloured with a brown, medium head. Taste is way too sweet, bit fruity, roasted malts. For Glouglouburps information: They can spell. But you need to follow some courses dutch I guess. In dutch stout means bad (More like bad child than bad villain). And yes this is a bad brew. :-) A very bad Bie.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 2, 2006
Black with a large creamy brown head. For a stout this one has too much fruit flavours (plums, grapes). Roasted malt with a strong lactic character, almost chocolate-milk. Not sweet. Creamy milk-ish body. If you cannot spell stout, you probably cant brew it either.

madsberg (11655) - Sborg, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2006
Bottled. Pitch black coloured. Brownish fluffy somewhat uneven head. Sweet, light citric and siced aroma. Flavour is very sweet. Has cocoa notes. Fruity, full of sweet b erries and light spiced. Thin bodied. Very sweet in the end. Too sweet for me.

Ouch, over the top beer; too sweet and some dms, too metallic in the end! Doesnt smell like a stout at all; yeasty and musty. Tastes SWEET....some spices and some fruit. Bit homebrew like. Not so nice. Looks great though!
