Pours translucent deep brown with a creamy beige head. Nutty chocolate aroma. Light-ish body and medium-light carbonation. Rather sweet taste with roasty caramel chocolate, molasses and a dash of prune. Baker’s chocolate finish with a hint of smoke. A pretty solid offering.

BeerGestapo (754) - Mt.Joy, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 2, 2009
Brewed in Scotland...... Pours a very dark brown almost black in color with a super thin off beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and coffee notes. The taste is of chocolate malts, nuts, coffee beans and vanilla notes. The mouthfeel is smooth and thin with a faint bitterness at the finish. Not bad and very drinkable, but something is missing?

Bottle, bought @ Gammel Strand, Cph.
Pours almost black, light nutty-brown edges. Really impressive, creamy, cappucino head. Aroma is roasted, chocolate, some prunes and nuts. Low carbonation, great creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is wonderfully milky chocolate sweet, some hard roasetd malts, vanilla and slight coffee notes. Very, very drinkable stout.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 22, 2009
Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a smallish, but creamy, stringy-lacing light tan head. Aroma of rich sweet toasty caramel and chocolate malts with some light peatiness. Starts with good fullness and lots of malty sweetness well balanced with some complex mild smoky peat before a lingering dark chocolatey finish. A very nice sweet stout.

illidurit (2104) - Petaluma, California, USA - MAY 22, 2009
Very very dark mahogany color with a large tan head. Great retention and lacing. Nutty cocoa aroma with accents of light peat and some sweetened coffee. Nice black malt flavor, notes of coffee beans and dark chocolate. A bit of caramel sweetness along with a slight acidity. Body is nice and full yet airy. Carbonation is a little too high. Very drinkable and tasty.
