"330ml bottle: poured a pitch black with a gorgeous mocha puffy cap. Moderate carbonation for a bottle conditioned ale. Nose recalls coffee, dried fruits, toasted caramel sweetness and grassy hops. Full bodied, rich, and silky mouth feel. What a wonderful mix of flavors..all very mellow and not sharp or over bearing: cocoa, chickory, dates, musty apple, slightly charred toast...all kept in balance with lashings of lemon grass acidity from the hops and a soft drying charred finish that is totally in balance with sweet caramel tones...the finish is the mellowest, evenly balanced I have ever tasted in a stout...this is a world class stout and probably the best foreign stout available in bottles. Smooth, well rounded and very drinkable for a stout. "

Large foamy dark tan head. Faint roastiness with a big sweet note in the aroma. Milk chocolate, roast malt combine to create the majority of the flavor profile. Some muted hop fruitiness, noticable as they cut through the mocoa in the finish. Mouthfeel is milky and very sweet.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 2, 2005
In the big bottle. Dark black in color with a brown head. This is an AWESOME stout! Sweet, but not too sweet. Dry, but not too dry. Great chocolate and roasted malts. Perfectly balanced for a smooth palate.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUL 29, 2005
Black with a huge foamy dark brown head. Aroma is dry and heavily roasted. Milk, chocolate, and coffee notes pepper the aroma as well. A very sweet stout that is cloying. Flavor is mostly sweet chocolate. Very smooth and malty. This was too sweet.

Sinha Stout. Pours an opaque black colour with a big foamy head. Roasted caramel malt and coffee aroma with some sweetness. Medium body with a rich silky smooth mouthfeel. Taste is initially sweet but then the roasted malt takes over and you’re left with a nice chocolaty malt and some bitterness to finsih. Quite surprised how good this was.

BeerandBlues2 (9596) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUL 25, 2005
Bottle. Pours opaque with a small bit of dark brown at the bottom of the glass with a tall frothy tan head, quite fizzy. Ends with excellent spotty lacing. Dark roasted caramel malt and toffee initial aromas with a big coffee push and some vanilla notes. Faint floral hop, raisins, neat the end. Flavor is dark chocolate and coffee with a hoppy body(fruit) and dark molasses and alcohol lingering. Full bodied and dark, somewhat dry and astringent.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 21, 2005
Pours a dark body. Jet black. Aromas are immediate coffee, molasses, raisin bread, sugars, with flavours of raisin bread, chocolate, and LOTS of coffee. Very well balanced. Nice smooth mouthfeel. Alcohol not noticable. One of the great stouts of the world. A rare gem at the LCBO.

Very dark brown/black color, frothy tan head. Mild roast along with cream, milk, and chocolate. Mild smoke creeps in along with some subtle dark fruit. Medium full body, creamy. Very nice.

Crockett (1007) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2005
Pours almost jet black with a tall tan foamy lasting lacy head. Aroma is short and sweet. Wood roast ripe cherries. Berry tart. Mild chocolate/coffee. Sea water boullion and melon. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. Definitely worth a re-rate.
