hohops (952) - Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2015
Bottle states 8.2% abv. Appearance is almost jet black, with a half-finger light brown foamy head which fades away. Aroma- plenty of coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, caramel, hop hints, chocolate biscuit, the vaguest hint of dark fruit. Taste- lots of coffee bitterness, cocoa-rich dark chocolate, hop bitterness, espresso, roast malt, treacle, medium mouthfeel, dry roasty bittersweet finish. Excellent.

Marduk (7181) - Reval, ESTONIA - FEB 7, 2015
330ml bottle. Deep brown color, almost black. Small size, brown head, stays as a ring. Deep roasted malts, sweet, slightly ashy, very faint milky and chocolatey notes on aroma. Fantastic mix of roasted malts and dark chocolate in taste. Touches every tastebud in my mouth and picks me up by the ears. Afteraste is everlasting. Alcohol is very well hidden. Absolutely fantastic! More!

imdownthepub (14225) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2015
Bottled, 330ml from S.H.Jones in Banbury. Black with tan head. Full, heavy and rich Stout, there is a combination of bitterness from the darkly roasted, chocolate malts then rich fruitcake fruitiness along with the smooth vanilla flavour. It has the feel of an old comfortable sofa, easy and comforting. Loved it.

poech73 (390) - Braine, BELGIUM - JAN 24, 2015

ABV: 6,7% Bottled 15/09/2014
Magnifique Stout assez sec en bouche qui offre un maltage onctueux sur des notes lactes, avec des notes de vanilles, lgrement fum et bois. La gorg fort douce et dense dveloppe des armes de chocolat amer et laisse le palais rche et langue grasse avec une amertume lgrement aigre et fleurie la fois. Au dpart, son nez trs parfum: fortes senteurs dorge trs grill, voire brl, de la vanille et de la levure. Cette levure fruite apporte des saveurs lointaines de framboise voire de mre. En toute fin, je reste avec ce maltage fort torrfi sur des notes acres mais adoucie par cette sensation lacte. Superbe!

Nijstrom (280) - Turku, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle. Pitch black with a tan head. The aroma consists of roasted malts, chocolate, chocolate, liquorice and dried fruits. Moderate/heavy sweetness, moderate bitterness and a dry, somewhat bitter finish.

Pepinis (98) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 20, 2015
Coloracin marrn intenso, casi negro. Buena formacin de espuma y buena estabilidad. En nariz presenta suaves notas quemadas, caf solo e intenso y suaves notas achocolatadas. En segundo plano y de manera muy sutil aparece notas de lpulo. En boca el protagonismo es para la malta torrefacta que proporciona notas de madera quemada, caf solo e intenso y chocolate puro y licoroso. Amargor procedente de la malta torrefacta. Cuerpo denso y baja carbonatacin. Retrogusto seco y prolongado de las maltas torrefactas. La sensacin en boca deja pensar que su graduacin alcohlica es mayor a los 6,7% que realmente presenta. Muy ajustada a estilo (Foreing Extra Stout)

LoFi (1714) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 12, 2015
Bottle. Black with a brown head leaving lacing. Aroma: roasted, coffee beans, creamy, licorice. Taste contains the same and adds wine gums, salmiak, fruits and maybe berries, dry finish. Very nice.
