Ungstrup (29284) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2003
The aroma is sweet and malty with roasted notes. The color is black and it has a light brown though disappearing head. The flavor is sweet and malty with strong notes of chocolate and roasted malt. A good beer, but not as good as I thought on the basis of Michael Jacksons recommendation.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Smokey, dry and somewhat bitter. Drinkable but a dissapointing drink immediately following the Jamaican Lion Head Stout.

fiulijn (14516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 6, 2003
Dark color, dark brown generous head. Deep coffee aroma; roasted malt; yeast. Smooth, good balance of sweetness and bitterness; malt, roasted malt, coffee; a very light acidity (high carbonation, maybe). Final not enough interesting, some sweetness, not too long.
A pleasant sweet stout.
