sour nose and a black onyx colour. Taste is mainly malty with coffee tones. Kick on the tip of the tongue. Goes away quickly. Goes down easy and you donít notice the alcohol content

Wonderful stout. Flavor profile is intense and complex. A bit too carbonated, but thats my only complaint. Truly classic.

An excellent stout for the price. I especially enjoyed the light coffee flavor inside.

Overall a good stout. It reminded me a lot of my first (and probably most successful) foray into homebrewing. Chewy and very smooth. This is not a dry stout, it was fairly sweet. 8% alcohol was imperceptible. A great beer for the price!

A good foreign stout, not much more than that. Some mocha/coffee flavors. Not that complex, but very drinkable for a session or two.

If I wanted to, I could choke this down and probably end up enjoying it. However, itís a little too dark for my taste and the flavor is rather overpowering.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2012 Can. Head is initially large, frothy, brown, mostly lasting. Body is black (almost opaque). Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, dark chocolate, coffee, husks, cereal), with notes of soy sauce, milk. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, husky. Medium body, creamy/oily texture, lively carbonation. Honestly? Itís a little unpleasant. I liked this 6-8 years ago, but, well...itís got some unattractive malt character mixed in and some soy sauce and lactose as well. My stomach clenches up a bit every time I take a sniff, and thatís not a good thing. Odd sourness in the mouth (again like milk, thatís started to turn) and a grainy aftertaste. It isnít horrible, but itís certainly not the high 3ís sorta beer I used to take it for, at least for my tastes these days.
