BuckeyeBoy (8182) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle thanks to Dave. Pours out pitch black topped with a nice tan head. Aroma was of coffee, milk chocolate, roast malts and a light hop. Taste is much as the aroma lots of coffee and sweetness.

tricksta_p (4879) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - SEP 2, 2017
Bottle from Biernavigatie. Aroma is roasted malt, dark cocoa, milk chocolate, mocha, coffee, dark fruits, a touch of hops, caramel, espresso, with light liquorice in the finish. Flavour is sweet with a medium hoppy roast bitter finish. Body is full and a bit creamy. Pretty amazing, lots of chocolate and coffee, fruity and hoppy notes as well. So damn tasty, it all comes together.

Davros IX (418) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2017
Bottle at home from Mother Kelly’s. Poured very nicely with a lovely opaque black colour and a long lasting dark tan head. It certainly smelt the part with roasted and toasted malts and quite a whiff of alcohol, which should have put me on warning. The flavour was the same, lovely malts, but completely dominated by the alcohol. The mouthfeel was oily and quite unctuous and a strong alcohol burn. I had been looking for this one for a while, but the alcohol was way too much for me and pretty much killed my enjoyment of the beer.

Booze and chocolate in aroma. Coffee, bitter chocolate in taste. Dry mouthfeel, nice carbo. Chocolate mousse. Nice aftertaste. Dry.

LazyPyro (1395) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2017
330ml bottle, 9.5%, bottled October 2016. Pours black with a thin bubbly tan head. Aroma: rich dark/dried fruits, dark chocolate, roast malt, coffee. Taste: like the aroma rich with dried fruits and roasted malts, liquorice, chocolate, warming alcohol, quite sweet, long warm finish. Full bodied, minimal carbonation. Decent stout but very rich, wouldn’t want more than one.

Beerowl80 (387) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2017
Bottle. Pours very dark brown. Aroma of chocolate, liquorice, roast malt and coffee. Moderate sweet and bitter. Good thick mouthfeel. Excellent no nonsense stout.

4.2
KraftowyJakup (370) - POLAND - JUL 12, 2017
W nosie brownie, od groma czekolady deserowej, uczucie jakbym wąchał miękkie ciacho z płynną czekoladą, dalej trochę paloności w postaci ziarna kakao, prażonego słonecznika i skórki ciemnego pieczywa. W smaku raczej półwytrawny, ale gęsty, oleisty, ciała nie brakuje, na finiszu odczucie wyklejania, jak przy czekoladzie 90+ % kakao. Mimo, że lwią część aromatu i smaku wypełnia czekolada i kakao pod różnymi postaciami, nie powiedziałbym, że jest jednowymiarowe czy nudne. Po ogrzaniu dochodzi wyraźna nuta piernika z rodzynkami czy śliwką.
