UPDATED: JAN 9, 2018 330ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn) (7+:4:8:4:15=3.8)martjoobolut (5468) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 7, 2017
Rich chocolatey aroma, good and malty, nothing fake. Taste is even chocolatier, dusted truffles. Super velvetty palate, gentle carbonation, and served at the perfect (English cellar) temperature. Good solid high-7s porter, surprised by the 9! Finish even has some nice esters to float around the mouth, as well as the lovely dry bitter burnt roast. Oh, yes. Oh, yes, oh, yes.
Rerate: 330ml bottle (Pothouse, Tallinn) (7:4:6:3:13=3.3)
Looked great again - black, tight tan gead. Smells nearly as good, rich roast, lots of bitter hops. Taste way more aggressive, roasty, bitter, but quite some kick of alcohol too. Slightly powdery palate. Dry dusty dirtyish bitter finish. Almost Bramling-crossy. A bit of a let-down compared to the previous sample.
Bottle (at koht). Pours black with beige head. Aroma is roast, malt, booze. Flavor is sweet and bitter, sour, roast, malt, coffee, fruits, sugar, cocoa, hops. Finish is sweet and roast with some hops. Overall: very good.
Marduk (8830) - Reval, ESTONIA - DEC 7, 2017
330ml bottle (thanks martjoobolut). Pitch black color. Medium size, brown color. Roast, massive dark chocolate, papery, cocoa powder in aroma. Dark chocolate, lots of cocoa beans, papery, oily in taste. Cocoa powder in aftertaste. Dry mouthfeel. Alcohol is there, but kind of hiddeen. Solid brew. orbit (373) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 18, 2017
Genuine stout with a nice touch of coffee and bean flavour. No solid whiskey or otherwise peaty tastes, but mostly plain coffee and plain savoury smell and taste. Not sweet at all, which is a difference from most stout I've tasted, but refreshingly so. wekker84 (2610) - etten-leur, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2017

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2017 Kadootje van GSAP waarvoor dank! Schenkt zwart in met een mooie plakkraag. Ruikt droppig, koffie, sojasaus. Smaak is in het begin zoet maar onaangenaam scherp en bitter in de afdronk. Geroosterde mout, koffie. Nasmaak is niet zo goed. jtclockwork (17769) - , New Jersey, USA - AUG 2, 2017
