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.

Bottle. Thick very deep brown colour with a big creamy mostly lasting light brown head leaving a good lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and hops. Fresh smooth bit creamy flavour, good roasted malts, chocolate, bit liquorice. Dry roasty finish. A really tasty stout!

edfitz (118) - Toledo, Ohio, USA - FEB 9, 2007
Black pour with frothy head. Roasted aroma. Roasted malt flavor with a velvety feel. This was in my beer fridge for a while before I tried, because I just didn’t think it would be that good. I was wrong, it is very good.

Bottle at home. bought at Dublin airport. Really enjoyed this Stout. Warm, brown colour. Dry, wheat taste. Coffee and some chocolate too. Bit better at the end. Excellent mouthfeel.

gws57 (1275) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2007
Found this one bottled in South Elgin, Illinois. Coal black pour with a nice, nutty nose, roasted almonds and chocolate throughout, taste petered out late. Not terrible.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - JAN 31, 2007
11.2 oz bottle from LeopoldStotch, I believe. Dark as night, but pours rather watery. Faint aroma of malt and coffee. Mouthfeel is watery. Lots of lacing, which I found kind of surprising. Nice bitter hop flavor that lingers. Malty, with some coffee flavors going on as well. Pretty good stuff. Much better than I thought it would be.

Bottle. Black color with a nice brown head. Aroma is burnt malt, chocolate and coffee. Flavor is roasted with some hints of chocolate and coffee. Dry finish, but a little thin.

Tranquillity (1787) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2006
I’ve had this draught notorious times at Gallow’s Bird, Espoo, but this rating is from a bottle. The beer is dark-dark brown with a thick, light-brown head which lasts quite long. My nail broke while cutting potato. The aroma is quite sweet, wonderfully chalked smoke with some berries (elder?) and cream. The taste is very good, smoke and milk with burned malt and a very balanced hoppy note on the aftertaste. Smooth, although not to foamy on the palate.

shigadeyo (3630) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 20, 2006
Sampled on 11/29/2006 at the November meeting of the Junedale Beer Klub. Brought by Tman... Tasting notes: Black with a creamy tan head. Lots of roast/char character in the flavor and dark bitter chocolate. Has a very dry finish with a moderate level of bitterness. Thin to medium body. Actually tasted a bit better than the Guinness Extra Stout that was sampled earlier during this tasting meeting!

pubbe (493) - Højbjerg, DENMARK - DEC 10, 2006
Bottle. Dark brown with light brown diminishing head. Aroma offers burnt malt, tar and bitter chocolate. Chocolate and hops in the flavor. Nice long finish with soothing bitterness. Well made stout, which seems to lack some alcohol to balance the chocolate though.
