Bottle. Black color with a foamy brown head. A strong ruby, dark wood and cherry aroma fortells a rich flavor with plums, bread, light chocolate, molasses. Oddly thin in some respects (bubbly and light on the tongue) but also robust in flavor and with a long aftertaste.

pivo (2547) - GERMANY - JAN 22, 2005
Dusy and yeasty nose with some roasted grain aromas. Dark brown color and a tall frothy head with good retention. Toaste malt quickly comes and goes giving way to a fantastic spicy, roasted and even yeasty end. Tobacco effect after the swallow. Like a good yeasty Belgian ale with a stout base. Medium body and some of the alcohol peeks through the profile. Different, bold and very delicious.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JAN 12, 2005
Deep brown w/ a lite brown head. Aroma of sour apples and a huge maltiness. Med-heavy body. Excellently funky and a little hot. A deep rummy figiness to the flavor. A lingering finish that reveals vanilla and chocolate. Incredibly well balanced and my wife thinks its AOK!

Terminus (3229) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JAN 10, 2005
bottle-Thanks to Whaleman for sharing this cool and unique beer with us NMer’s. pours a deep brown hue that looked slightly cloudy with a nice beige bubbly head. roasty, belgian yeast, caramel sweetness, plumbs, and dark fruit. rum, vanilla, and even chocolate covered marshmellow flavors. the body reminds me of Bells Stout due to that marshmellow feel and flavor going. A very cool and interesting stout.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2005 Tight sudsy gray head and chocolate brown body. Rummy nose with plums, raisins, and dried dark cherries. Strong dark chocolate flavor with more cherries, plums, port-like notes, smoke and funky Belgian qualities. Has some unmistakalbe alcoholic heat. This is a great twist on the style. I could drink this every evening. Belgians rule!

YogiBeera (2450) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 2, 2005
Big antique white frothy head, that sticks long. Dark brown, nearly black color. Malt, orse blanket nose, also clay. Light alcohol taste, slightly tabocco, meidum lasting dark chocolate taste. Nice and somehow unusual for a Stout - nice hoppy intervalls.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 31, 2004
Dark brown/black color with a nice off-white head & small lacing. Nose of milk chocolate, liquid smoke, coconut, light alcohol. Tastes hot & strong, lots of chocolate & roast, light coffee. Finishes salty with lots of alcohol. A good foreign stout but a bit strong on the alcohol department. Lots of aging potential! Cherry?!
