twindadplus2 (601) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 22, 2005
Bottle. Medium black color with a ruby tinge and a thin short-lived head. Sweet aroma with molasses, licorice and roasted malts. Flavor is lactic and very sweet with more molasses and brown sugar plus a small roasted barley note. Bitter chocolate coffee finish. Full bodied and smooth. Not a bad stout, just not very inspiring.

rauchbier (3634) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2005
Bottle from Beer Cellar, Lincoln. Jet black, thin shortlived beige head and low condition. Quite sweet aromas with hints of milky coffee and liquorice, bittersweet in the mouth with some chocolate and liquorice along with a roasted note and some woodiness. Gentle sweet coffee in the finish, along with a warming retronasal hint of alcohol.

12 oz bottle. Sampled at the Lynnwood International Swill Fest. Dark black color. Small sized beige head. Aroma is chocolate, rum and licorice. A medium bodied Foreign Stout. Malts are chocolate and toffee. There is a strong lactic character to this beer as well. Smooth taste, creamy and almost silky. Lively carbonation. Touch of an off flavor, plastic?, cardboard? At the finish. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

This beer pours a near black color with hints of ruby red, a nice but small tanned head and moderate lacing. The aroma is a bit strange with chocolate, malt, coffee, lacticness and nuts in the aroma....i mean... NUTS??? The flavor is medium to full bodied and super lactic. Generally smooth with a silky mouthfeel. Some hints of chocolate grainyness, lactic qualities and perhaps caramel sweetness. Dry cottonmouth finish with coffee beans and that typical plastic finish I’ve come to expect with foreign stouts. More or less enveloping flavor, but it doesnt develop as much as I’d like it too...and once again, what is up with lactic foreign stouts????

Sweet chocoate, vanilla, lavender and red licorice in the aroma. Opaque brown body with low tan head that recedes to ring. Chocolate and strawberry flavours with a lactic character and mild roasty bitterness. Medium-ful body with low carbonation and fair alcohol warming. Bottle (trade, Dec-04) sampled with MartinT, Oivier_MTL and Rastacouere. Thanks, Degarth!

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2005
Couleur brune foncés aux reflets rouge-brun vêtu d’une faible mousse blanche tacheté. Réglisse rouge, framboises et chocolat économique sont assemblés ensemble par une fine couche de colle à plastique. Axé vers le malt, chocolat, plutôt sucré en bouche et définitivement certaines vapeurs de produits synthétiques. Corps d’épaisseur allant vers mince, légère carbonatation, étalement court. Une éphémère plaisance nasale.

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 5, 2005
Deep ruby brown, no head at all. Anise and chocolate aroma has a minty edge to it, aftereight reminiscent as well as herbal, maple and lactic undertones. Darkish malts are sweet and caramelised on the palate, mint is still a factor while the roastiness reminds of coffee. Not quite as balanced as most, it feels like a low weight, light carbonation, fairly light body, fading flavours.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 29, 2005
The Lure:
Sweet molasses on morning toast are always fun. Alcohol with candy fumes are often intruging. A tease of dark chocolate without delivery is rarely satisfying.

The Festivities:
A drop of caramel in the chocolate milk. Nutty sweetness remains low-profile, as roastiness gains from the svelte body. A good offering, but apparently tired and about to turn in early.

I am told that cocooning is gaining in popularity.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 26, 2005
Dark brown body with a red tint. Thin tan head. Rummy aroma with grainy notes and tartness. Molasses-y flavor with tart grain husks. Baker’s chocolate finish. Nasty stuff.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - MAY 25, 2005
Pours a very dark brown, small off white head. Aroma of rum, molasses and a little chocolate. Flavor is flat, more molasses, rum acidic, not a big fan. Thanks to 1FastSTI for sharing.
