Black with a nice head. The aroma has notes of licorice and smoke, and the flavour has notes of licorice, tar, smoke and a nice bitterness.

Bottle: dark reddish black with a coffee head; aroma dominated by the roasted chocolate malt;chewy consistency with a full body and lots of roast malt, chocolate and coffee flavours; and a pleasing driness that I donít find in the draught version.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle bought in Dublin. Much more character than their standard draft version. It looks the same, but it has a fine body of roasted malt.

The original drink is always the best. I have been drinking this for a number of years and I dont intend to stop. Absolutely gorgeous taste when freezing cold, if bought in bottles, its best to leave them in the fridge overnight to get the best temp. Or bung it into the freezer for about 30 minutes, whichever you prefer. :)

An always enjoyable beer to drink. Usually I find the can here (prefer the export bottle though :P). A very good stout, very smooth like silk, lots of cofee.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A snort of bittersweet malty chocolate. Pungently bitter black-coffee roastiness. Bit of a watery body, but still as luxurious and flavour-packed as some Dubbels twice its strength.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Dark brown coloured with a red gleam. Fluffy light brown head. Sweet and light roasted aroma. Quite bland. Flavour of light roast, light chocolate and some herbal notes. Is surprisingly thin bodied and has a quite watery texture. Roasty light bitter end. Had expected more.

Mine actually brewed in Aust, but I couldnít find that one so iím putting my rating here.
Very flat black with fruity coffee aromas. Dry hop bitterness, milk stout aftertaste.
