larsga (6323) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2006 Initially milky body, but gradually settles into a clear dark chestnut brown under a creamy off-white medium head. Looks lovely. Very faint aroma of sweet caramelly malts. Taste is clean and light, quite sweet, notes of licorice and treacle. It gives way to a faintly bitter aftertaste, with a vague hop taste. Very mild, and not really very interesting. (From can.)

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 27, 2005
(Draught) Pours a deep amber body with a large creamy beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, a hint of roastiness. Flavor of creamy malt and caramel.

Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2005
Can. Amber color and a steady head. Nice malty aroma. It feels flat in the mouth but has a discreet caramel and malt flavor with a slightly bitter finish.

hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2005
Amber coloured, thick white, foamy head. Malty nose. Smooth mouthfeel. Malty, slight hoppy flavour. Quite thin and watery. Drinkable....not much else.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2005
Copper/amber with yellowish small head (at least on the real draught). Sourish and funky in a bad way. Smells of hops and malt. Bitter in a blunt and dull way. Very slimy and smooth, too weak and too Irish for my sensitive tongue.

vidbellegueule (30) - CANADA - SEP 29, 2005
in can. Long lasting medium head. Not impressed by the color, seemed too clear for a cream ale. Strong malt taste. Dosenít stay too long in mouth. This beer is not very creamy. A beer i will rate in 1 word, ORDINARY.

Tristan (14) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2005
Drinkable, aquired taste, although not at par with some other stouts. Not a bad choice however

vanvenlo (1319) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2005
5 Sep 2005 (Hunnshof) - Light malt aroma with a touch of sweet toffee/caramel. Clear brown-red colour, with good head and sheet lacing (although manufactured appearance). Sweet light malt, hoppy and caramel flavour. Sweet light bitter finish and a bit thin.

WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2005
When the nitrogen clears its a dark copper with an artificially foamy white head. Not very complex, with a muddy bitter taste like a baby Guiness. Has the same wonderful but artificially creamy mouth feel of all
