Pours a clear, reddish dark brown with a 2 finger, soapy tan head. Aroma is lots of caramel, apple, an odd acidity, white grape juice and light nutty, toasty and roasty notes. Flavor is caramel apple up front, roasted nuts, cereal grain, grapey-fruity notes and an odd, light acidity. Light, creamy to oily body with a light, blanketing and soft carbonation. Not bad overall, definitely an odd one, as much like a bitter with lactose as a stout.

The body has a nice dark chocolaty brown color with a light brown, chocolate milk shake like head on top. The head has very good retention makes tons of thick light brown lacing on the glass. Its aroma has a mix of leafy hops, minerals and smoky roasted grain. The flavor has hints of coffee with cream, some smoke, sweet roasted gain, leafy hops and a light dusting of dark coco powder. It has a nice medium body with a silky smooth texture and soft carbonation. It is slick but not overly thick or cloying at all.

Rating #965, flaske fra Malta. Meget mørkebrun, næsten sort øl med standard bruge skum. Duft af sød lakrids og sukker. Meget sød smag med sød lakrids, hvidtøl og masser af metal hvilket gør den ret ulækker. Vel nok den dårligste stout jeg har smagt, men også en af de alkoholsvageste. Normal tykkelse.

Aroma - there is a small amount of chocolate and a little tinge of roast Appearance - very dark brown/black body; liquid is opaque; the head is about 1" and a nice tan/brown color; lacing is a silky stocking Taste - the taste is sort of like chocolate malt and a cracker jack like caramel, mild, yet nice. A very much subdued roast, it’s nearly negligible; there is a little of that Chocolate Cow about it as well. Palate - body is medium; texture is slightly thick and a little creamy as well; the carbonation is soft, bordering on flat; the finish is kind of like a chocolate milk.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2013 Biggest drawback is the flatness. Flavor is great - caramel and chocolate with sweet cream notes.

Bif (1384) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Pours a black color with no head to speak of. Aroma of malt, dark fruit, and a bit of caramel sweetness. Taste of malt, some dark fruit, bit of caramel with a hint of chocolate. Very light bitterness and a pretty dry finish. Light body, smooth, but short on character. Decent beer but not what I look for in a Stout.

Hanuta06 (319) - Washington, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Serving: from bottle--purchased at The Beer Junction. Aroma: light apple, wood, grape. Appearance: very small, rocky, light brown initial head with no lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Dark-brown body. Taste: lightly sweet, clove, vanilla, apple initial flavor and lightly sweet, chocolate finish with short duration. Palate: light body, thin, watery texture and flat carbonation. Overall: below average. The aroma was interesting, but the taste was strange and the palate was terrible-really watery, thin and flat.
