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)

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle at The Raleigh Times. Chocolate smell, tart tangy finish. Very weird, very dry. Not crazy for this Belgian yeast/chocolate stout hybrid.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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 Iím 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 Iíve had.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Union Jackís 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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
