Kimchee and I did this one side-by-side with Dragon Stout and here's what we found: The colour is very dark brown (exactly the same). The aroma is fruity (raisin, prune) with stinging alcohol (basically the same). Flavourwise it is sweet, with lightish flavours of plums and sugary malts. Body is light. It is similar to, but less meaty than Dragon Stout. It has less malt complexity and deep, dark fruit esters. Alcohol seems reduced as well. There are too many similarities for these to be from different breweries, but this seems like a significantly lower-gravity version of the Dragon Stout.

Healthy tasting taste that feels nice to drink, but doesn’t have an overbearing taste.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - APR 5, 2005
Bottled. Chocolate cake aroma with some espresso notes. Chocolatey, bitter and coffeish taste. Problem is the underlying wateriness and thinbodiedness. The water flavour was too prominent. Ends rather dry. The aroma was so promising, but the body lacked. It´s a shame. Still drinkable, though.

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!

I’m a big lover of stouts but nothing really stands out about this particular one. It has a malty flavor but I would consider it to be one dimensional.

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.

12oz bottle pours dark brown/black with thin tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, and molasses. Taste has an astringent bitterness that is really off putting, roasted malts and chocolate taste almost chemical.

DuffMan (8628) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 5, 2009
Sampled at the first annual Medicine Hat Beer Festival. Clear dark brown with amber highlights. Aroma is sweet caramel and chocolate with candy-like elements that bring to mind Tootsie Rolls. Lighter palate that is thin on burnt malt and dominated by syrupy sweetness, saved (somewhat) by a dry finish. Pretty average, but a very pleasant surprise to have found a foreign stout I hadn’t tasted at the Medicine Hat Beer Fest!
