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.

MrBunn (2683) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2006
Aroma is weak and unconvincing-roasted malt. Strange oat smell that isn’t offensive, just seems odd. Color is nice and dark with tan foamy head that leaves some nice lacing. Flavor is watery and not as robust as expected. Pretty plain... nothing really noteworthy although it has a little more sour kick than I’m accustomed to with a stout.

Brownish head on a brown body. Tasty, with hints of cramel and rather bitter. Good ber, but not one I would consume every day.

HenrikSoegaard (12850) - Randers, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2005
Bottle. Creamy light brown head. Fully lasting. Brown colour, wonderfull beer to look at. Caramellic aroma. Heavy bitter flavour, coffe like more than chocolate.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 26, 2005
Dark burgundy brown body with visible carbonation and a frothy, light tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, burnt figs and chestnuts, and some evident sweet caramelization. Flavor is like well-roasted dark coffee with medium acidity. Also some charry notes plus burnt fruit and squash. Fizzy, over-carbonated palate.

Tmoney99 (13165) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2005
Draft at Montgomery Inn - Boathouse in Cincy. Poured a black color with a huge creamy cascading light brown head that was lasting with good lacing. Good roasted spice aroma. Medium to full body. Good well balanced flavor with a soft dry finish. Good above average dry stout.

Nice roasted nose and poured black as night. Nice rich head, all good up until the taste. The profile was there but the structure was lacking. A little watered down for my taste.

Looked great at almost black with a nice head. Aroma was licorice and roasted malt. The flavor was pleasant but hampered by being thin bodied and overcarbonated.

Sregnar35 (1030) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - DEC 1, 2005
On tap at Mahars. Very much a guinness clone, but with more burnt character, similar to Beamish. Thinner head than I would have liked, but still had a nice thick body.

Habanero (3864) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2005
Beige medium lasting head. Coffee, chocolate and smoked aromas. Deep brown. Malt and smokey roasted coffee flavour. Medium bodied. Bitterness in the finish.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - NOV 17, 2005
Interesting aroma of bitter, roasted malts, with a slight hint of nuttiness. Soft carbonation. The body is rather thin, but full of bitter malts and roasted coffee. The dryness pervades the body, leaving a bit of chalky feeling on my tongue. Good, but dry stouts just aren’t my favorite breed of stout.
