3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours brownish/blaclk with a beige head which leaves a nice lacing. Aroma’s of chocolat, nuts, coffee, dried fruits. Light/medium body with mild carbonation. Dry, salty with enough malt to balance it out in a nice dry warming finish. Excellent stuff and an almost unsurpassed price/quality value. Will buy and drink this again with pleasure!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle consumed a few months after best before date. Pour is almost opaque black, small tan head and lots of lacing left on the glass. The big nose of roast and coffee that has been enjoyed with ’fresh’ bottles is kind of absent here. Earthy aroma., smoke, and like a smoked oysters? Flavour is pretty similar as aroma with a little leather, slight metallic edge, with some good bitterness present. Also getting some sweet alcohol like a port or something? I kinda really like this.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2007 I was having one hell of a time getting any kind of scent off this beer. Not much of an aroma, I could dectect some very slight chocolate scents but that was about it. Pour is a nice opaque black with your typical copper/brown head. Now the taste. This stuff is light as hell. This one definately does not share the typical flavor characteristics of a stout. Its smooth but not malty, and has a bit of a sweet taste to it. Overall I would rate this one slightly above average.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark body with a creamy head, much like espresso. A smoke flavor is dominant as well as a hint of something sweet. I was pleased with this bottle.

Pours out super dark almost black leaving dark tan head. Aroma is of a roasted malt and coco. Taste is of a coffee and leaving almost a tangy aftertaste. Decent brew

Strong, delightfully tasty beer. Gave me that ’aaaah’ feeling when I first tasted it. Heard good things about this beer and it didn’t disappoint
