A real good stout. Lots and lots of fine maltyness in the flavor, also some in the aroma too. Perhaps it was better because it was ½ a year to old. ?

Bottle, DBF 2004. Red black, good beige head and moderate condition. Pleasant fruity sweet aromas with hints of liquorice and roast barley. Sweet liqorice, roast barley and burnt toast in the mouth and a long dry chalky bitterness in the finish. Good.

Black thick beer with a creamy head, that settles from bottom up. The aroma reminds me of rye bread and there is a hint of coffe and carmel ind taste, but it has a bit weak finish.

A beer doesn't get prettier than this.... Very dark almost totally black body with a tall fizzling dark beige head (the darkest head I have seen on any beer..!!). The aroma is awesome, though maybe a little weak. Lots of roasted malt, liquorice and bitter chocolate. Flavor is bittersweet with notes of liquorice, hops and pilsner malt (?). A very nice stout, but needs a fuller body to be great!

Wow - Guinness go home! This is one great stout. Deep, deep brown colour, light brown head. Lovely roasted aroma with plenty of chocolate. HUGE flavour: chocolate, dark fruits, and a massive dry, bitter finish. More complex and sweeter than Guinness I would say, but not too much due to the plentiful hops.
