StefanSD (2150) - Lakeside, California, USA - SEP 20, 2012
33cl bottle from Jacob. Thanks. Pours black with a medium tan head that slowly recedes to a fine film. The aroma is strong with dark fruit, licorice and molasses. The flavor is loaded with dark roasted barley, raisins, dates, burnt toast, walnuts and anise. The palate full and creamy with soft carbonation. Finishes long and dry with lingering licorice. Overall: An outstanding stout, very tasty.

asheft (2544) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 6, 2012
[bottle--thanks, fonefan!] Rich, chocolate aroma with dried fruit--like smelling a Cadbury chocolate with raisins candy bar. Opaque, oily black under a red-dark brown blanket. Complex flavour of sweet pumpernickel, bitter dark chocolate, milk chocolate, dried fruit, and good bitterness to hold it all up. Full body, sweet and bitter chocolate finish, moderate carbonation.
