Draught@Monks Porterhouse, Stockholm. Quite much black colour with a mediumsized brown head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, cream and some slight spicyness along with mildly roasted tones. Flavour is quite similar with some dark dry fruityness added.

Bottle. [thanks bluebetty]
Deep brown, bordering on black. Small, staying, creamy, beige head. Aroma is mild sweet, quite a bit of tartish berry, roasted malts, light chocolate. Medium, quite prickly carbonation, dry and light mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet at first, chocolate, softly fruity, then turns roasted and dry. Nice malty bitter finish where it almost feels a bit smoky. Shame that the prickliness of the carbonation kinda limits the experience.

Leighton (10999) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2010
Tap at the White Horse Pub, London. Pours opaque, brown-red with a soft, foamy white head. Roasted malt, brown sugar aroma. Sweet flavor with dark malts, brown sugar, light smoke and modest char. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a smooth, silky mouthfeel. Has a sweet, roasted malt finish with notes of caramel and mocha. Very good.

Black with a tan head, deep roasted malt with definite chocalatey notes. Smooth and easy to drink, light in the body. Very good.

(Draught at Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm) Very dark brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with chocolate, dark bread, cocoa and ryvita. Roasted, malty taste with notes of chocolate, coffee, dark bread and ryvita. Coffee bitterness in the finish. Medium body, rather dry. Well made and tasty stout.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 19, 2002
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2003 Like it more and more every time i have it. Roasty, vegemitey nose. Very nice soft texture. Nicely bitter and roasty, a bit tarry aswell, it actually manages to cover the palate quite well, despite not having a very thick palate. Dry finish. Real nice.

mkel07 (3391) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - FEB 11, 2009
330ml bottle. Poured with a small tan head that quickly disappeared. Thick black in colour, almost looked like a glass of cola. Strong burnt coffee aroma. Lingers on the palette and feels thick in the mouth.

Bottle courtesy of my brother. Poured a dark brown with only a wisp of a light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, brown sugar and coffee. Really surprised with the quality of the flavor. Definitely above average for the style. Roasted malt, coffee and caramel predominate. Tones of brown sugar, earth and nuts. A touch of toffee like sweetness.
