COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep, dark black with a fine coffee crema head and a ripe bouquet laced with coffee and chocolate and burned Vogel's toast aromas, a dash of fruit and a tang of green hops in the background. Toasty, ripe palate is also touched with a dash of hop herbals that give it a dry character, gently rich and very long. Has full, well-shaped flavours with hints of chocolate and toast to the very end. Classy stuff.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown! / Waikato, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 27, 2009
Bottle. Pours almost black with a creamy brown head. Light roasted aroma of toast, coffee and dark chocolate. The flavour is toast, coffee and dark chocolate. There’s great balance here with a full bodied maltiness and enough hop bitterness and hint of licorice. Smooth and bitter finish. A top stout...very nice!

donfardz64 (538) - Wellington, New Zealand, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 8, 2009
Tap at Bar Edward. Pours black, thin tan head.
A smooth aroma, vanilla and coffee with a bit of caramel sweetness.
A robust flavour, plenty of coffee - espresso like bitterness. A wee bit of dark fruit on the finish which is long and roasty.
A very tasty, classic robust Stout. This beer is on good form at the moment.

DuffMan (6162) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 26, 2009
dark chestnut brown pour with a light brown bubbly head that collapses into a rim-hugging halo. Nice aromas of coffee and chocolate, slightly sweet with hints of molasses. No ash or vegetation. Semi-sweet palate, medium bodied leaning toward heavy. Classic stout flavours of burnt roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate with a solid bitter finish. Truly classic in profile, with good balance and generous flavour. Very nice.

(Bottle 50 cl) Very deep, dark brown - almost black - with an orange hue and a fine, rough, beige head. Burned aroma with a whiff of licorice. Solid body with burned coffee notes and again some licorice. Some malt astringency. Very neat. 200208

2l Rigger from the brewery - aged 5 months and was in tip top shape! Everything a good stout should have. Nice thick creamy coffee like head all through the glass. Aromas and flavours of coffee, chocolatesand lovely roasted malts. Nice work Dick.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 1, 2005
Tasted 20/06/2005. 500ml bottle from Regional’s, Wellington. Inky black with a diminishing but lasting, tight, tan head. Big roasty aroma of coffee, chocolate and toast. Rich, oily, medium-heavy mouthfeel delivers a smooth roasted malt bitterness with no obvious hop presence. A little sourness in the flavour. Those who like a black coffee in the morning, should be drinking this in the evening. My favourite of a good Lighthouse range.

light body, Black colour, slightly weak flavour with hints of roasted malt but not strong enough
