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.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2004
Dark brown body with a foamy tan head. Aroma is mild coffee, roasted malt and milk chocolate. Flavor is also mild and quite thin. Roasted malt with some bitter hops in the finish and also weak coffee notes. Little sourness. Nice and easy but very light and thin.

Sammy (8937) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2004
Beatiful dark brown pour. Easy light drink, bit much on water, particularly with lower alcohol. A bit of bite -molasses and hoppy. Liked: Only mildly roasty, only bit of the coffee, and hint of chocolates and nutty. Clear freshness dating.

Boutip (4862) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 23, 2004
Bottle: Poured a dark black colored beer with an average bubbly head with standard retention. Aroma is really great with a nice mix between roastiness and coffee. Taste is OK with some nice touch of roasted malts and coffee. The aftertaste is dry without too much of the watery feeling you get with Guinness. Overall, a good stout but nothing too much out of the ordinary.

Pjones6738 (500) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 22, 2004
Scent is strong alcohol, but it seems to work. Coffee taste dominates. A perfectly acceptable stout.

TheDean (786) - MIlwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 22, 2004
Smells like yummy. Smooth beer, with not a lot of taste. Hum, have really nothing else to say about this beer, but I need to fill space. That should do it.

rickgordon (3845) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 19, 2004
Bottled. Black. Roasted malt and toffee up front. Richly grassy and bitter. Dry finish. Medium bodied.

AndersR (195) - Århus, DENMARK - APR 18, 2004
Dark brown with tan head. Smokey but not as smokey as the Celtic Red from same brewery. Not very complex taste, a bit thin and not especially well balanced.

piscator34 (1996) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 17, 2004
Black in colour with minimal head. Smoke and light malts as far as the aroma is concerned. I found the flavor to be VERY smokey... I might have confused this with a smoked beer if I had been tasting it blind. The smoke sort of overwhelms the secondary malt and caramel flavors. A very thin body as well. Unbalanced and disappointing.

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2004
Dark brown body, thin light brown head. Aroma is rather mild, malty with tones of chocolate and licorice, rather simple I must say. Palate is rather low-bodied, chocolatey, pretty effervescent for a stout and a very honest roasty finish, moderately bitter and with a bit of coffee. Not worth hunting, but far from unpleasant.

Lubiere (10453) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2004
Clear dark brown beer with a small off-white head. Sweet malts and chocolate aroma. Sweet chocolate, slightly smokey beer with peat moss character, slightly lactic. Very nice bodied stout.
