Via trade with Lubiere and Capflu. Deep brown, tan head. Nice roasty aroma. Flavor is mallty sweet up front, but fades quickly and finishes clean. Not much to it, and could use a little more character.

Black color, medium, fugaceous tan head, no lacing. Nice aroma of chocolate and liquorice. Flavor of liquorice, dark chocolate and coffee. Roasty finish. Very full body, creamy, velvety mouthfeel. Very enjoyable.

Dark brown to black in color. Smallish tan head. Coffee, cream and caramel aroma. Vanilla and light coffee bean mix in a light liquid. NInts of grass and light licorice. Seems to get sweeter as it goes. Not really my kind of stout.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Black with an off white head that leaves quickly. Oily appearence. Smokey aromas of chocolate roast, bitter hops, alcohol and coffee. Again the flavors are smokey, the same malts come out. The bitterness is a bit more. Thick body, smokey palate, and a finish of roasted bitterness.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Dark black color, tan dark head with islandic lacing. The aroma is roasty with doughy bread and some mocha. The roast level is around 200ºL with muskat grapes. The flavor is creamy with oatmeal & light mocha & roast, very rounded for the style. Finish is balanced & milky. Good Stout.

Pours a dark dlack with an off white head. plenty of aromas including , coffee, chocolate, dark malts quite a rich nose. The flavour was less than expected, kind of thin mouthfeel . O.K. but not great. Thanks to Rastacouere for the trade.

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2004
Tasted in Toronto. Obtained from a corner shop in Quebec. Tatsed in a dimple mug. Pours relatively thick. Very dark colour, basically black, when held right up to the light it shows a very slite reddish hue. Initial large foamy tan coloured head, has reduced to a respectible thin head. Initial aroma is of burnt caramel, molassis and possibly a hint of licorice. Some malty notes with an ambient sourness. Taste is upfront sweet with a molassis flavour, finishes relatively bitter. A much thinner taste than what I was expecting after looking at the way it poured.

Jiffypark (31) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2004
Wow, it had been about 8 years since I drank this, and I remember I had found it waaaay too strong. This time: niiiiiice. Poured a creamy brownish head, bubbly, but faded fast afterward. Aroma filled with roasted notes and almost chocolatey. Full taste. Nothing amazing but a pretty solid stout...

Wheatsheaf (104) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 9, 2004
341ml bottle. Appears black, but probably better described as very dark mahogany-brown. Light aroma holds molasses, vanilla, and milk chocolate notes. Soft carbonation and a watery mouthfeel make for a quite light-bodied stout. Were it not for the little bit of roasted malt in the flavour profile this could easily pass as a chocolatey dark ale. Some hop bitterness at the finish lingers reluctantly on the palate. Thin in flavour and character. Disappointing.

This is officially the best beer in the world. An incredible stout that makes me think of Christmas and chestnuts and... Boy do I ever love this beer! Amazing!
