The color is strange - black but somehow orange. Not ruby, orange. Quite bready and sweet nose - cola, nuts, bananna, alcohol vapors. Tastes somewhat like cola at first, giving way to a nice bready/nut thing. Refreshingly dry but a bit much on the alcohol. Cherries and wood in the finish.

Perfectly dark body, not a hint of light can penetrate. Very dark, black coffee look to it. You can’t really ask for anything better in appearance. Head is about an inch thick, big and oatmeal colored, with a grayish tint as well. Smell is strongly of sweet malt: chocolate and concord grapes. Taste is very sweet grapes, anise, alcohol (Nyquil-like), brown sugar. After a few seconds on the tongue, a nice crack of hops smacks the top of the taste buds and reverberates into the throat, leaving some roasted coffee notes with the alcohol sizzle. Aftertaste is semi-sweet chocolate/ cocoa powder and toffee. Interesting, complex and certainly has the unique ’foreign stout’ flavor one should expect. Very good beer.

Number 1000. A milestone. Had to be something special. And I’ve had some special stuff lately but which rates being 1000. Well, beer buddy Gasspasser stoped by with a bottle of this and all things considered, it was the one to choose. A stout (my favorite style), given by and shared with a good friend. Doesn’t get much better than that. And this was good. Just about black with a frothy brown head. Coffee, chocolate, anise, prune, raisin, all going on in the nose. Nice body. Not as rich and robust as an imperial stout but not thin and watery either. The flavor was coffee, molasses, chocolate, malty richness. Quite good.

Interesting, a belgian stout. Pours dark with a huge greyish brown head. The nose is malty with a touch of spices and yeast. The taste is warm and tingly with just a bit of malts and acidicness. yup its a belgian but its got some good stout characteristics to it. Get a hold of this one if you can.
