DruncanVeasey (7423) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2006
Licorice-black snifter humming of smoky malt and booze. Psychedelic swirls of filthy tan froth. Burnt toast and mouth-filling dark chocolate. Claret-like creamy palate. More intensely bitter coffeeish roastiness than you could shake a stick at. Everything that’s great about draught Guinness, but more so.

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2006 From a nightshop in Brugge - Pours black with a thin, mostly receding foamy tan head. Aroma of smoke, pepper, and toffee. Taste is sweet, spicy malts, hints of smoke, tar, fusels, and whiskey. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with a slick oily texture and lush carbonation.

I walked around the streets of Brussels drinking one of these. It was a great day and great beer. way more flavorful than any other guinness i’ve had.

yngwie (14762) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2006
Bottled. Nearly black stout, that looks clear, and with a nice beige head. Malty and roasted, with some burnt sourness and dried fruits. Roasted and burnt malt, dried fruit, cocoa and hints of coffee in the flavor. Full body and a dry finish. Much more interesting beer than the Irish little brother, but not suitable for sessions. (060720)

Bottle. Black colour with a medium creamy fully lasting light brown head. Aroma and taste of malts, coffee and chocolate. Good palate.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 5, 2006
Bottle thanks to hopscotch: Pours to an opaque deep brown body with a small tan head, quickly fading. The aroma is chocolate, prunes, light cinnamon, cola. Taste is light cloves, chocolate, burned coffee, roasted malt, mocha, though it’s all a bit less intense than I expected. Medium bodied, moderate-light carbonated, finishes with some sweet prunes and plums.
