bhensonb (12014) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 22, 2009
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a decent tan head. Aroma of dark lightly burnt malt with something lightly herbal. Medium body with rather creamy carbonation. Flavor is dark, almost with a touch of tar. A good straight forward stout. Not a trace of heat. Good drink.

argo0 (11898) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 6, 2004
Black body with brown head. Aroma is medium sweet, chococoffee, some raisin. Taste is sweet, coffee, chocolate roasty, some raisin, faint anise. No bitterness, even coffee-based. Medium body with decent richness. All told, a solid stout that holds its own.

bierkoning (10843) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JAN 21, 2005
Bottle. Very dark color, almost opague. Roasted malt and licorice in the aroma and flavor. Nice beer, but not very refined and on the sweet side for this type of stout. Refreshing.

Lubiere (10766) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2004
Deep black stout with reddish cherry hues, and a thick collapsing moka head. Aroma of vanilla and Nestle Quick. Sweet chocolate with notes of raisins, licorice and some alcohol in finish and light bitterness. Body is thin and short. Not as intense as Dragon but still a good export stout. Thanks Presario.

madsberg (10597) - Søborg, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2005
Bottled: Very dark brown/black coloured. Has a medium sized light brown head. Loads of chocolate, roasted malts, some fruity in the aroma. Flavour is light chocolate, Roast, some light coffeenotes, Fruit and a light fruityness. Ends on a somewhat perfumed note. Is medium bodied and hides the alcohol well. Quite nice one.

Drake (9999) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2010
12 ounce bottle from Bestway in Greensboro, NC, which I purchased for the Jamaica tick, forgetting completely about Red Stripe. Duh. Oh well, this will undoubtedly be much better. Pours a deep brown color appearing black in the glass. Medium head with decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of slightly dirty roasted malts with some slightly acrid smokiness. I guess that pretty much means the aroma is slightly bad. The taste is roasted malts, caramel, nuts and an almost bourbon-like quality. Tart throughout. The taste is almost good, which is to say, slightly bad? Thin-medium bodied. Overall, this is slightly bad. Which is to say almost good? Or mostly good? Who’s to know? I guess that all goes to say that this is pretty much average.

hopscotch (9954) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2006
Bottle... Dark brown, almost black, ale with a small, creamy, light brown head. The aroma is of milk chocolate and alcohol. The flavor is decently balanced and chocolatey. Medium sweet, lightly bitter and boozy. Medium-bodied and a little silky with light carbonation. Finishes lightly tart, grassy and astringent. Thanks to DarkElf for the bottle!

hopdog (9537) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2006
12oz bottle acquired in trade with DarkElf (thanks mon!). Poured a dark black with an averaged sized light brown head. Aromas of chocolate, licorice, molasses, caramel, and dark fruits. Lighter tastes of chocolate, dark fruits and roasted malts. Tastes a little bit of a let down compared to the nice aroma. Creamy body that was on the thin side.

pivnizub (9162) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - FEB 17, 2007
Bottle (300ml): Coffee-black coloured, small brownish head; sweet coffee, dark malt and roasted malt in the nose, hints of liquorice,too; not very dry bitter flavour, medium bodied; fruity and (port-)vinous finish with a lingerin (malty-)bitter aftertaste. A good and easy-drinking Stout........

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2005
Bottled. A gorgeous aroma which is oily, tarry and full of lightly roasted malt. There is a sweet nail varnish type smell which is really appealing. The colour is obviously black and there starts off being a large tan coloured head, but that disappears all too quickly. The taste is full bodied, sweet roasted malts, alcohol, a bit of sweet chocolate and an oiliness. I’ve yet to have a ’Foreign Stout’ I’ve not enjoyed, and this one doesn’t buck that trend.
