SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 6, 2006
12 oz (maybe 330 ml) bottle, thanks to slob! Pours ebony color with faint brick highlights when held to light and a small beige head that leaves some lace. Aroma of raisins and prunes, roastiness, sour milk, chocolate, a bit of ash and floral notes. Sweet, roasty flavors, coffee and dark fruits, fudge, alcohol, dry and tart notes leading to a lingering bitter finish. Full body, smooth in the mouth with gentle carbonation.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 3, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2006 Black opaque with decent dark tan head the has decent lasting. Nose is faint, chocolate with mocha and slight anise. Flavor is nice, roasted mocha coffee, medium bitterness, and a slight metallic taste that is mildly offputting. Palate has a medium-thin body and somewhat watery, yet still smooth texture and a lively bit of carbonation. Finish is short and mildly acidic, like a dark coffee. A decent stout that really never shows it’s 8% potency, but was not exceptionally complex or interesting.

HenrikSoegaard (12850) - Randers, DENMARK - APR 29, 2006
Bottle 0.625 L. Creamy lightbrown fully lasting head. Dark brown colour. Week but nice aroma. Nice coffee/caramel balanced flavor. Long finish. A little watery palate regarding 8.0 abv, but a good stout!

BeerMountie (117) - Placentia, Newfoundland, CANADA - APR 27, 2006
Pours a dark brown almost black with a thick dark brown head. Aroma of Coffee and malt. Tast contains malt and some sweetness. Overall a very good beer. Thaks to Mr. Manning for sending this one my way.

Panzuriel (1787) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - APR 26, 2006
Pours a dark opaque black with a rich head of dark beige bubbles that resolves into a fine head of foam. Nose is rich roasted malt. Reminiscent of black coffee. Taste is rich and good roasted bitters but is thin and a little sliky like a good roasted black coffee without cream. Finishes with a good amount of back of the throat bitters.

GiBrew (171) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - APR 19, 2006
Deep red in colour with a somewhat frothy tan-coloured head. Aroma reminds me very much of Molasses (very sweet) with notes of alcohol. Flavours are somewhat fruity. Medium bodied with a lingering alcohol finish.

Fish (440) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 17, 2006
Dark brown to black, small lasting light brown head. Really nice medium body, smooth texture. With a well-balanced flavor that at times has a cookie sweetness and at times a sort of plum or pit-fruit sweetness. My first Sri Lankan beer! Thanks again for the trade, Shrubber!

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 17, 2006
Black colored, little lasting brown head. Sweet, roasted, vinous aroma with mild alcohol, caramel and coffee, rich aroma indeed. Medium bodied. Roastiness, coffee, caramel in flavor, aftertaste lasts with mild alcohol and roastiness, surprisingly thin bodied. Still excellent brew!
