Ughsmash (7507) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 30, 2006
Bottled. Poured a clear, very deep brown with garnet highlights.. medium cap of creamy beige head. Enjoyed the bitter nose of burnt dark chocolate malt, coffee, licorice, and sugarcane sweetness. Flavor was not as good... poor balance of sweetness against the burnt dark malts and alcohol.. slightly cloying at the finish... lighter body on this one, and it only flowed decently. Some dark fruit appeared with the licorice and coffee in the flavor. Man.. get that sweetness level down a tad... pick up a bit more of the nice expresso bitterness... and this could be really good.

after4ever (7481) - Brier, Washington, USA - DEC 31, 2009
12-oz. Pours jet black with a fairly dense but rather sudsy and pocked tan head. Loose strings of tan lace on the walls of the glass. Falls away pretty quickly. Mild chocolatey nose. Creamy medium body, soft carb. Chocolate and roast with a bit of prune on the mid-palate. Mild sweet pruney chocolate finish.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 6, 2004
Pours a rich milk chocolatey brown with a thick tan head. Mildly sweet chocolate aroma. Body is lightly roasted, sugary and dry with a good chocolate presence. A very nice foreign stout.

PorterPounder (7116) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 15, 2004
Pours with a motor oil like look to it. Thick and black - the head was off white and dissipated quickly. Aroma is of chicory, licorice and alcohol. Flavor has elements of chicory coffee, cane sugar, bitter chocolate and traces of alcohol - but hidden well for 8%. Smooth on the palate at first but turns just a tad chalky near the end after settling and warming. Expected a syrupy sweet concoction when I picked up the bottle - but pleasantly surprised Mon!

AmEricanbrew (6656) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 15, 2011
Black body/ tan head. Big black licorice, tobacco, dark chocolate aromas. Medium body with soft co2. Nice lightly sweet black licorice flavors with dark chocolate, mild smoke dark roast malt--good

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 12, 2005
Bottle pours black, quite opaque, medium frothy light brown head, with spotty lacing.   Chocolate malt nose, seems slightly vinous.   Some dark pitted fruits as well.   Somewhat cardboard like up front, very minor, but detracting.   Otherwise subtle chocolate malt, slightly vinous, with some dark pitted fruit and apple skin on the tongue.   Body and mouthfeel are average, fairly medium.   Light finish, slightly watery, with some chocolate malts and very minor dark pitted fruit.   Not bad, but no Lion Stout.

Strykzone (6560) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 26, 2010
Bottle at Erato. Typical pour for a stout with a bit more red than most. Decent sized tan head. This beer is all about anise. Aroma and flavor both offer lots of it. Some dark fruit in the flavor, roasted notes. Thin at times but medium bodied at others.

BBB63 (6543) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 22, 2004
Nearly opaque with a small tan head and very good lace. The aroma hints of tart and sweet fruits (apple, current, and berry), roasted malts, caramel, slight mocha, coffee, aromatic hops, and zesty yeast esters. The taste starts bittersweet with good hops background leading into a mocha flavor. Undertones of coffee, plums and earthiness. The finish is almost woody and bitter. The mouthfeel is a bit thin, lively and refreshing. A solid easy going stout, quaffable. Try one. Thanks MattA.
