awiseman01 (469) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - OCT 29, 2009
Bottle. Pours pitch black with slight brown edge and lingering foamy light beige head. Nose is a balance of roasted/chocolate malt and astringency. Flavor is smooth and creamy and surprisingly pleasing compared to the nose. Some chocolate pokes through, with an overall light feeling to it for a stout. Not Bad.

donfardz64 (538) - Wellington, New Zealand, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 19, 2009
500mL bottle. Pours almost pitch black, with a tiny bit of red on the edges. Nice tan head. Sexy.
Nice malt aroma, very burnt. Coffee and caramel, a bit of fruit (raisin?). Nice warm chocolaty roast flavour, a bit of coffee on the finish, a little smoke.
Nothing too intense here, making this one quite drinkable and unintimidating. Goes well with a cigar too. But generally I like a bit more oomph in my Stouts.
