Hmmm... first of all a very very nice beer. It is quite different from your average stout, but also quite difficult to describe. It is a bit fruity, which is very refreshing, but you still have the feeling of a stout - creamy and full, together with a fruity and carbonated feel. It is a stout you no doubt could enjoy on a hot summerday! (Bottle)

Bottle at The Raleigh Times. Chocolate smell, tart tangy finish. Very weird, very dry. Not crazy for this Belgian yeast/chocolate stout hybrid.

12 oz. bottle from Greens. Pours very dark and cloudy with a bubbly tan head. Almost opaque but not nearly as thick as your average American or British stout. More funk and earthiness in the nose than I’m used to in a stout. I find this pretty intriguing when complimented by some of the more traditional stout aromas: roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, even some hazelnut. The flavor and palate is an absolutely wonderful union of all these aspects. Maybe the best foreign stout I’ve had.

Bottle. Union Jack’s in Oley, PA. Pours a thick, brown-black color with a nice tan head. Heavy duty stuff. Aroma of chocolate and coffee being the most dominant aromas. Heavily bodied as expected. Goes down the gullet nice and smooth. Certainly a sipping, colder weather brew but quite delicious. Can feel a slight alcohol burn but still pretty smooth considering it is 9% alcohol.

Rocky balooning head that sticks around for the whole beer. Dark, but not a black hole by any means. Musty sour aroma with some hints of dark malts: chocolate, roasted, maybe Special B. Some alcohol presence ... not quite a stout, but not quite a belgian dark ale -- the roastiness makes it a definable stout. An interesting juxtaposition of two favorite beer countries.

330ml bottle enjoyed @ home. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, dark dried fruits and some liquorice. Flavour is sweet and light bitter. Medium bodied, thin texture, soft carbonation. Finish is plain and a bit boring.
