Kinz (3307) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 8, 2011
Been a while since I had a Foreign Stout, this one toed the line stylewise between the alcohol content and fruitiness of a typical foreign stout and the dryness and coffee thinness of a dry stout. But I enjoyed it. Poured black. Aroma was mostly coffee. Flavor was coffee, a bit of chocolate, and a light fruit character. Light bodied, hid the 7.6 very well. Not spectacular, but quite solid and enjoyable.

Mmm, not bad. Not quite a sweet stout and drinkable. I let it warm a tad before pouring and then it had a nice, thick, creamy, foamy, frothy, tan head that mostly faded fast and a little lace. Color is opaque dark brown except in the bottom of the glass where itís narrow and there I can see itís a clear garnet. Aroma isnít too complex, just basically what Iíd expect to find: roasty, malt, toffee, cocoa, caramel. Flavrorís more or less the same with a little sweetness balance by the roasty burnt and carbonic acids. Body is good, ditto carbonation. Finish is balanced too with a little booze and of medium length. A slow session so I donít get wasted.

AmEricanbrew (5863) - 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

mcnealc31 (253) - Elida, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2012
Completely black underneath a giant, frothy, khaki head. Smells pretty good, too, with lots of toffee and some bit alcohol notes. Mouthfeel is surprising light and slick, but there are a lot of flavors here to like. Toffee, rum, brown sugar, big alcohol bite, and at 7.6% ABV, thatís not surprising. The hops are kind of funky, and not necessarily in a good way. I didnít have big expectations, but this is unique and pretty tasty. Worth giving a toss

Patrickctenchi (3814) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Pours nearly black, with a short, quick dark tan head. Scent is coffee, chocolate, a hint of wine and alcohol. Taste is almost candied sweet..toffee-sugary roast, a little darkly fruited. Very enjoyable beer.....nice busy flavour.

wlajwl (3931) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Aroma is roasted/complex malts and a mix of chocolate and a hint of sweetness. The flavor is roasted malts, coffee, notes of chocolate and sweetness and a bitter/slightly rough around the edges finish.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 9, 2013
A - Black body with a tan tight bubbled frothy head that stays awhile. S - Chocolate, hazel nut coffee, sour dark fruit, sweet dark malts, T - Dark fruit, tangy and slightly acidic raspberries, dark chocolate, notes of powdered dairy, has a muted smoked citrus tang, iron/minerals, hazel-nut flavored coffee, hops provide a bitter bite on the finish. M - Moderate carbonation, medium bodied. A descent export here. Nothing simple about this beer. Hops come through nice without taking away the other flavors. Exports are a fun style with odd characteristics. This would be really good in the winter. Although itís even good in 99 degree weather. Serving type: bottle 06-25-2011

BBB63 (6084) - 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.

argo0 (11568) - 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.
