Pours a pitch black with a frothy tan head. Smells malts, chocolate and a bit alcoholic. Tastes dark chocolate, coffee and roasty. It has a nice bitter finish. Average carbo, sticky texture and a medium body. I like stouts and I this isnít a bad one.

Dark pour, frothy head, tons of lacing. Quite nice looking. Aroma is slightly soapy with mild roast. The flavor was pretty heavy roast, dry and light in the body. Not strong or really attention grabbing, but not a terrible effort. This thing really should be in six packs for $10, though.

on Tap at Belgian Beer Weekend. Brownish black with a nice off-white head and keeps a nice lacing until the end. Aroma is roasted malts, hints of dark fruits. Flavor is the same but some notes of coffee yeast. Medium carbonation and well bodied, dry finish.

Pours a dark brownish black on tap with bubbly tan head that leaves light lace. Aroma was dark roasted malts and a hint of belgian yeast that lends itself to dark fruity esters. Taste follows, thin and bubbly. Nothing that special, but no bad.

Bottle bought in Manchester. Clear very dark brown colour with an initially large, but soon dissipating, mid brown head. Aroma of malty, roasted, chocolate, caramel and liquorice. Moderate sweetness, medium bodied, texture is slick, carbonation is soft after initial fizziness wears off. Bitter finish.

(33cl bottle) In-person trade with Ferris. Frothy beige head atop a solid black body. Nose of coffee and ash. Fairly thin and slightly gritty, smooth vanilla cocoa and green apples. Interesting.
