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.

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 itís all a bit less intense than I expected. Medium bodied, moderate-light carbonated, finishes with some sweet prunes and plums.

I was running out of steam after a weak long run in Krefeld/Dusseldorf, Germany and Ieper/Poperinge, Belgium, so I need to get back to this one, because it may have been better than what I make of it. In any event, it poured a nice dark black color with a head that was initially nice, but not overly impressive. The aroma was really vinous along with the chocolate base (very interesting). The flavor was much of the same and something about the combination of the bitterness (chocolate) with this level of alcohol just didnít strike the flavor or mouthfeel fancy. In fact, I missed the nitro mouthfeel, as this seemed to be on C02.

henrikb (1260) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2006
Black body, huge staying light brown head, no laces; Quite big soft nose, that could be deeper and more complex: mostly buttery malt, soft English licorice, very soft coffee, very pleasant but lacks complexity; Nice carbonation a little sharp though, soft and quite bitter body; Into evolving bitter medium full finish with coffee, licorice and candied sugar, quite bitter a bit thin, becomes dry with length.
