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.

Delicate roasty aroma. Good looking pour - black with a decent brown coloured thick head. Malty - almost raisiny flavour with plenty of (peat?) smoke apparent. Roastiness is short lived. Body is a bit thin. Bottle.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - FEB 9, 2004
Bottled. Black with a medium-large fluffy tan head. Dry ash like aroma. Certainly a dry flavour, toasted malt flavour but lack the follow through on the palate and has very little length or depth in flavour.

MartinT (8351) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2004
Roasted, sweet black grapes over quite dry, hoppy flakes...Persistence of dryness and a fruitiness sometimes on the verge of aniseed...Sunday brunch in a glass...

Wheatsheaf (104) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 7, 2004
Bottle. A near-black stout with mahogany highlights. Pours with a thick, creamy head that leaves full lacing. Bread and light roasted malt aroma. The taste is moderately roasty, with a touch of smoke, and a nutty dryness that lingers on the palate. It might not grab you, but it is still a well-made, flavourful, and traditional dry stout that is miles ahead of Guinness.

Tessic (917) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 6, 2004
This nice stout poured a huge tan head. Nice aromas of caramel, molasses and roasted malts with a slight touch of cocoa. Small amount of yeast. First taste was a litle over-carbonated for a stout and had a rich smokey flavour to it. I could taste the small amount of yeast that I smelt before. I could almost taste charcoal. The finish was slightly watery with continuing smoke flavour.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - FEB 4, 2004
Draught. Roasty aroma, malty. Deep dark ruby, black from a distance, thick nitro head. Roasty flavor, a tad metallic. Medium body. Not bad but the nitro kind of killed it.

DrBeer (829) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 4, 2004

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - FEB 3, 2004
Malt and coffee in the nose, and a slightly metallic aroma. Almost completely black with a HUGE frothy white head. Very nice to look at. Flavor is very roasty and some kicks of coffee. It ends very bitter, some metallic flavor too.Rather dry. Its very carbonated and its a bit watery. Mediocre stout.

iam (369) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 3, 2004
Pours black with a huge, long lasting, creamy head. Woody aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Light medium body. Flavour of roasted malt and coffee with a hint of raisins. Bitter aftertaste. Nice.
