Lambister (208) - - NOV 14, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2013 355ml bottle. Beautiful dark brown color with small light beige head. Nose has roasted coffee, malts and some dark chocolate. These are followed in same kind of aromas with pleasant mild carbonation. More body to it and it would be better.

yngwie (13575) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle. A clear, reddish dark brown beer topped by a small, dense, off-white head. The aroma has some prunes and quite a lot of toffee. Some raisins too, hints of honey, coffee and sugar. It’s semi-sweet on the palate, medium bodied and soft, with a little bitterness. Some bitterness in the flavor, coffee-ish bitterness in the finish. Too butterscotch-ish, toffee mostly, I think, but it’s sure drinkable. 140815

gopherfan99 (466) - CROATIA - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle, pours a reddish brown with a tan head, has a bit a sweet taste to it of caramel malt but is rather thin and watery, not very bitter but a fairly average stout

Beerheart65 (1000) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 6, 2014
Looks deep brown but is clear ruby against light, foggy film on top persists well. Regular coffee and caramel malt, dessert spices, nice aroma but not much nuances. Tasty coffee, mildly roasted malt, Semisweet, medium body, bit licorice, malt notes stay medium long in finish, bit dull palate, not exactly watery but not full either, main flavor is sweetish malt mildly roasted and without much bitterness. This needs bit more body or nuances or just better flavors...bit smoky notes or something. Not very interesting to me.

VDuquerroux (289) - Airvault, FRANCE - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle, 355mL. Home. In memory of dear friend FL. A clear dark brown beer with a medium off-white head. Medium persistence. Aroma of caramel, toasty malt. Simple but pleasant. Medium refreshing bitter, light sugary sweet. Light body, thin texture, soft carbonation, dry bitter finish. Overall, a beer, pleasant to drink, refreshing. Light character. Just enough for today.
