gegwilson (2524) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2014
Bought from a little Calvados store in France. Apparently the brewery has now closed down and this is one of the last bottles. Pours black with a good tan head. The taste is rich, fruity and sweet at first before bitter liquorice notes on the finish. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Really very good.

rauchbier (3709) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2004
Bottle conditioned, 750ml corked bottle. Jet black, thick, lasting coffee coloured head and gentle condition. Big spicy liquorice aroma, with background notes of coffee and roast barley. A liquorice sweetness in the mouth is kept in check by a gentle roastiness that contributes some dryness. It still has a degree of spicy fruitiness but less obvious than in the nose. Finish is short and coffee sweet with some roast barley dryness and a lingering liquorice note.

Shared 750ml bottle from the brewery itself. It pours a dark brown with light tan head. Aromas of coffee and chocolate. Very smooth. Dry, sweet and long finish. A very pleasant stout without the heaviness of this kind of beers. Very good!
