karpik (1046) - 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 ;]

luttonm (5724) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 11, 2016
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 (396) - 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.

Sparf (269) - SWEDEN - DEC 31, 2015
Maltig doft med strk av choklad och aning melass Mrkbrun vtska med ett beige skum. St, malttung smak. Liknar inte alls de engelska originalstouten. Choklad och alkohol brottas med den dominerande fruktiga karaktren, och s en aning kaffebeska i den halvtorra avslutningen. Helt fyllig kropp men med ngot verdimensionerad kolsyra. Kort, st eftersmak.

Rubin77 (1755) - Brussels / Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 26, 2015
F: pale brown, average, average lasting, diminishing to thin film. C: dark red ruby to dark. A: sweet, dark fruit, some yeast, blackberries. T: sweet, fruity, malty, yeasty, only some tones of stout, hint of coffee, chocolate, sweet dried fruits like dates, figs, too sweet and quite simple for IS, but beside the style quite good beer, 0,33l bottle from Delhaize in Brussels, medium body, average carbo, nice bitterness on the palate together with pleasant sweetness.

GSAP (727) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2015 Aroma is rijk aan zoethout, drop, opengesneden perzik of pruim en een snoepzakje. Smaak is een wisseling tussen fris zoetzuur, maar bij doorslikken is zuurtje wat te heftig, wat beetje doortrekt in de nasmaak. Flink donker met beige kraag
