COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This stout has a robust flavour with a ful bodied and smooth mouth feel. The roast flavours lead to a dry espresso like finish. A generous addition of fuggles hops lead to a tart bitterness which mingles with the roast espresso flavours on the tongue.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - FEB 4, 2005
Bottled. Nice stout but I needed some time to get used to the very strong bitter coffee finish. Another downpoint is that it starts medium bodied but soon gets thin.

badgerben (4395) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JAN 7, 2005
Black color with a very thin tan head. Bitter malt aroma. Definite roasted malt in the taste with some bitter coffee, but definitely on the thin side. It’s not bad and I wouldn’t pass on one.

sleepdirt (169) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 28, 2004
Dark frothy pour. Quite hoppy and somewhat smokey with roasted malt undertones. A little thin for my tastes.

Linc (737) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 23, 2004
A pervasive yet light hoppy aroma with strong coffee overtones suggests this beer will be tasty. Which makes the first sip somewhat of a disappointment. It’s not a horrible beer but it’s not well balanced, bitter, dry and thin bodied. The dominant flavour is burnt malt.

tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2004
Dark brown body, medium creamy head. Lightly roasty aroma. Medium thin & malty body with a creamy mouthfeel & smooth - slightly dry & mild sweet & sour finish. Hints of smoke.

Dorqui (2105) - Brescia, ITALY - NOV 21, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Bottled 0,50L. Optimal compact and adherent foam. Darkest with persistent and intense aroma. Excellent.

Cornfield (5473) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2005 Tap: This poured a deep brown color with a thin brown head. It’s good a strong roast malt and coffee aroma with a subtle hint of chocolate. The taste is predominantly burnt malts with a hint of sweetness. The coffee returns on the dry, dry finish.

burgerlicious (308) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - OCT 29, 2004
not a bad beer. very very similar to guiness. basically, i don’t have a lot to say about it. if you like guiness, you’ll like this.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - OCT 22, 2004
(on bottle)Could have sworn this was a porter, due to the simplicity. Very cofeeish nose and quite nice burnt malts to the finish, but the watery mouth is too dominant and leaves the ther impresions behind, gets irrelevant fast.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 22, 2004
Jet black with beige head. Light chocolate aroma, deeply roasted malt flavour, not really burnt. Moderate bitterness but not overpowering. Quite enjoyable because of its subtleties.
