Miksu (5039) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - APR 16, 2006
Bottled. Opaque black. Sweet, malty and roasted aroma with rye and apple. Flavor is full and sweet with coffee as well as chocolade. Salty licorice in the finish. Tasty, calls for more bitterness though.

iambeer (255) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2006
Got this one under the name Sinha Stout. Dark and overly sweet coffee. A full body and lightly hopped. Nice, but that about it.

mybrainhurts (390) - North Dakota, USA - APR 9, 2006
Pours perfectly dark with a chewy, toasty tan head. Delicious looking. Aroma is a bit odd. Almost like an open freezer smell. ( I don’t get it either ) With hints of red wine and spicy alcohol. Purple grapes, exotic roasted coffee, a touch of smoke, and peppery alcohol. Chewy body and fairly complex. Very unique.

Jayb0 (1153) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - APR 5, 2006
An excellent and offbeat stout with strong aroma but fairly delicate coffee, chocolate, and fruit interweaving while maintaing a bit ABV.

Lowe1983 (1480) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2006
Pours a dark black color with a thick brown head. Aroma is strong with chocolate, with coffee, caramel, and a small hint of alcohol. Flavor is strong with coffee with a hint of chocolate and caramel and sweet dark fruit. A decent stout worth trying again.

piscator34 (2284) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 3, 2006
Near black in colour with slightly higher than average carbonation. Aromatic profile begins with a somewhat pilsner-like sulfur hit before evolving picking up notes of mild coffee and plum. It’s fairly light in the mouth, and has some intriguing yet light flavors of espresso, chocolate, and a bit of caramel. Overall, this is fairly restrained as far as stouts go, but I could see this one being quite nice in the hot weather. Thanks radiomgb.
