Pour is a jet black with a small tan head. Aroma is smoky and woody. Flavor is not so much. Some light caramel and some nuts show up. Nothing really great but it was not pricy and another country rated.

Bottle. Poured a dark brown color with a smaller sized borwn head. Aromas of roasted malts, chocolate, and light caramel. Tastes of roasted / burnt malts, chocolate, caramel, and had a coffee bitter finish. With the name, I was expecting more of a Lacto presence.

Ughsmash (7276) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 1, 2006
Bottled, 3.8%. Poured a clear, deep garnet with a moderate cap of caramel head.. left some lacing behind. Milky, lightly-roasted sweetness in the aroma.. really, really sweet. Flavor was of milky, chalky, lightly-roasted chocolate and molasses sweetness... the sweet factor really piled on as this warmed up. Lighter-bodied. Not bad, but not one I could drink much of.

MullMan (1099) - New York, USA - NOV 28, 2006
dark brown color and "root beer red" at the edges. the head even has a ruddy tinge, although itís mostly a burnt sienna color. thick foamy but goes quickly. aroma is sweet roasted malt and a little pumpernickel. flavor is weak and a bit watery, but roasted caramel malt and raw hazelnuts. tingly carbonatoin, and dryish finish. club soda and mild hop bitterness in the finish. crazy concept of having a stout below 4%!

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 20, 2006
Pours dark brown, but almost black with a slight reddish hue. Foamy tan head. Aroma was mildly sweet with chocolate and weak coffee. Thin mouthfeel. Chocolate, light caramel, milk, and nuts on the tongue. Boring finish. Not my favorite style, but itís drinkable.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 18, 2006
Pours an opaque black with dark brown edges and a thin, wispy coating of tan head. Sweet sugary aroma has some toasty milk chocolate notes and noble hoppiness. Body starts with some sweet molasses and unfermented sugars along with some fizzy carbonation toward a slightly more bitter and drier finish. An interesting brew, but too one-sided.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 7, 2006
Many thanks to slob for this unexpected bonus. Pours a dark brown with a light brown head. Smells of nuts, some roasted malt, sweet spices. Taste is of malt, some chocolate, soy sauce, earthy hops. Unusual and different. Thanks for the bonus!

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2006 black with a medium sized creamy brown/orange head. very carbonated mouthfeel. aroma is actually kind of grainy with not too much roastyness. slightly metallic. flavor and aroma are weak. smooth but not really dark or roasty tasting. easy drinking but not flavorful. dry finish. not really good.
