vickey9 (999) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 6, 2016
Dark with a creamy head. Nose is coffee, caramel and a bit of riped plums. Body is medium, carbon light, texture thick. Taste is a bit sour. Palate is dominated by sweet and sour plums, coffee, chicory. Sour aftertaste. B@H

ForlornHope (531) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours a dark red-brown with a thin head that soon fades. Malt, plummy fruit and caramel on the nose with a slight acrid hint. Sweet to start and only a small amount of bitterness to finish. Rich, fruity and plummy. Slightly thin for a big beer. Not very stout-like.

karpik (1228) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAY 24, 2016
Caramel, bread, brown sugar, malt coffee in nose. Dark brown with tan head. Taste is medium sweet with lots of caramel and some chocolate, bread, molassess. Finish is low bitter, high to medium carbonation. Maybe not as I imagined "stout" but cannot say it is a bad dubbel ;]

At Uber, Seattle. Deepest red, foamy tan foam. Boozy, port wine, nice rich, very Belgian brown-abt flavor. Rich caramel, dark malts. Red fruity, alc is well balanced. Pretty delicious and interesting.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2017 butelka, warka do 27/08/16. Nie taki ciemny braz piwa, kiepska piana. aromaty... glownie karmel i ciemne owoce, do tego nieco przyprawowosci, kawowosci, banany... dosc delikatne. w ustach faktycznie slodkie i kwaskowate nieco, raczej wodniste (cialo odbierane dzieki lekkiej syropowosci), niezle ukryty alkohol, praktycznie zero goryczki. calkiem niezle w sumie, ale i tak mnie oklamali, to nie stout :) bardziej dubel

Старая запись лета 2015. Аромат сладкий с шоколад& и кондите& нотками. Вкус сладкий и даже черзмер& какой-то конфетн& но с кислинк& Странны& и не совсем стаут.

seynie (410) - Tienen, BELGIUM - JAN 31, 2016
Dark with a beige head. Not much nose. Pretty bland at first. Malt, candi sugar, raisins, mineral, nuts follow. Nice finish with a bit more sourness and cask. Not bad.

Need to try to find this beer again, because what I’d wrote down was crap.

Sparf (283) - SWEDEN - DEC 31, 2015
Maltig doft med stråk av choklad och aning melass Mörkbrun vätska med ett beige skum. Söt, malttung smak. Liknar inte alls de engelska originalstouten. Choklad och alkohol brottas med den dominerande fruktiga karaktären, och så en aning kaffebeska i den halvtorra avslutningen. Helt fyllig kropp men med något överdimensionerad kolsyra. Kort, söt eftersmak.
