Almost black color with creamy and cloudy beige head.Aroma is sweet roasty caramel malty. Flavor is roasty malty at first but finish is somewhat watery. In the aftertaste roastiness emerges again. Palate is light- to medium-bodied, a bit watery, soft and not much carbonated.

Sampled on draught several times across europe: pours a thick black colour, with a large creamy brown top. Head is quite aromatic, roasted malts and hints of coffee. Taste is pleasent, creamy and satisfying. Semi sweet and filling.

norsedoc (248) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2008
I believe this is the one I had in France and Spain. Served from this little plastic light up draft. Looks great, tastes a little more thin than the US version. Doesnít have that fullness I was expecting, probably from the lack of the flaked barley. Dry finish.

Brix (633) - DENMARK - APR 9, 2008
Tasted 2008-04-09. Bottle. Pours dark brown / black with light brown / grey / beige head. Aroma of roasted malts and coffee - weak aroma. Ditto flavours. Very wattery, but no off flavours. Somewhat uninteresting, but OK I guess.

shrubber85 (7960) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - FEB 20, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2011 Bottle. Chocolate and smokey charcoal aroma. Dark brown color with gigantic fluffy tan head. Smokey/ashy chocolate malt flavor. Overall better than the US version but occasionally gave me the impression that someone had put cigarette ashes in it.

as (164) - Belgrade / Hamburg, - JAN 21, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2008 0,33 l bottle. Black, with a lovely creamy brown head. Classic stout - very dry, with the usual roasted aromas and coffee/ dark chocolate flavors. Pure enjoyment, but the Draught version is kinda more interesting.
