Deep, deep ruby - almost to the point of being black. head disappears quickly. Nose is cherry cola, a bit of bitterness. Really sweet. Cola continues, with alcohol and artificial cherry. Good but too damn sweet!

DeepBlack (386) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2005
Bought in the bottle form a Russian bar (can’t recall name) on New Years Eve in Derby. Black colour. Quite fizzy & sweet for a stout. Pretty stickt too, but not bad for all that. Nice to have a bottle of it but I certainly wouldn’t want to much...

MrDick (353) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 3, 2005
I drank way to much of this while vacationing in Belize. It was the only decent beer (compared to Belikin Stout) that I could find in the local markets. From the first sip, I thought that this stout tasted like Kahlua. Very sweet with coffee, plum and chocolate flavors. This was an amazing pairing with some chocolate chips cookies!

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 29, 2004
Typical stout appearance. Aroma of malts, licorice and milk chocolate. Semi sweet chocolate, dry bitter roasted barley. Partially sweet cocoa and milk finish.

asheft (2826) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2004
Ruddy "clear" black with little to no head and lots of bird’s eye carbonation. Aroma is meaty and alcoholic with some roast, but not a whole lot. Smooth drink, but chalky with some candy notes (oxidation perhaps?). Not really roasty tasting and, though it’s in the nose, not alcohol tasting. I also got some sherry or port in the aroma and taste later in the bottle. Full body with a lot of carbonation.

Great body; nice, rich, dark tone; hints of coffee and choclate. I wish I could find some locally. Highly addictive afternoon sipper!

Bottled: Dark red/brown coloured. Has a medium sized dense brown head. Lasting . Malts, fruit, some coffee, roaat and a touch of alcahol. Flavour is pleasantly malty, coffeish and has some chocolatenotes. Is smooth and easy to drink. Medium bodied and ends on a light bitter note.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2004
Bottle- Pours a dark black body with a brownish head that is quite bubbly. Aroma is alcohol, like a port, slight coffee, with some sour malty characters. Taste is like malty, sour and coffee with some hintsd of what seem to be red wine. Reminds me of a port in a way. Leaves a nice bittermess in the throat that left me wanting more. Decent !
