fantti (1017) - FINLAND - JAN 13, 2013
Kaatuu lasiin sysimustana, vaahto on keskikokoinen ja väriltään vaaleanruskea. Haju on paahteisen ruisleipäinen, suklainen, maltainen, yrttinen ja hieman savuinen. Maku on paahteinen, ruisleipäinen, limppuinen, yrttinen, havuinen, tuhkainen ja hieman suklainen. Suutuntuma on tasaisen katkera ja hieman tunkkainen. Kokonaisuutena ihan mukiinmenevä stout, joskin turhan tunkkainen. Suklaata ei nimestä huolimatta hirveästi ainakaan omaan suuhun löydy.

Nera impenetrabile con schiuma marroncino e non molto persistente...il naso dominato da cacao e caffè, con una punta lattica....al gusto ritroviamo le stesse impressioni con un finale leggermente amaro...

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2013 1st rating 3/3/2013: Only a slight malty/chocolatey aroma. Opaque black in color. Not a heavy body, but a very smooth and satisfying deep malty, roasty flavored beer with a good dark chocolate flavoring. The chocolate is not overpowering nor is it artificial- truly a match made in Heaven for this beer. 2nd rating 8/18/2013: Again, not a heavy chocolate flavor here. I could have used more chocolate or a thicker body because of its label as a "Double", but not a bad beer either way. Alcohol is not detectable easily at all. A smooth drink and enjoyable treat beer.

Pours very dark, jet black, slight tan head. Light aroma of cocoa. Best served well chilled, serious bittersweet chocolate flavors. Smooth and creamy on palate. Definitely a sipping beer. As it warms you get more bitter roast coffee taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Black. Lots of dark, raw, chocolate, a bit of pencil. Very dry-chocolate flavour. Sweet licorice. Soft and full body. Very flavourful stout.

Bottle, rail soda. Pours a dark brown beer with a bubbly tanned head. Aroma of chocolate and malts basically. Flavor is quite complex, milky chocolate, malty sweetness and it has a fizzy, medium watery mouthfeel. Very nice stout in my humble opinion.

Can; Color: Black with a thick creamy head (milkshake consistancy). Aroma: Chocolate, coffee, roasted, malt. Flavor: Thickest beer I have tried thus far, creamy and smooth combines chocolate with malt. It is sweet, but not overpoweringly so.

44 cl can @ home. Pours black with a tan head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma is milk chocolate, cocoa, and a little roasted malt. Flavour is pretty much just like the aroma – with a slightly bitter finish.
