Melker (252) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2014
After two months of not so very interesting asian lager beers daily it’s fucking fantastic to have this poured into a glass after a surfsession in the Indian ocean. Aroma of milk chocolate, roasted malt, licorice. Taste of bitter coffee, dark chocolate. Medium sweetness, light bitterness, long aftertaste.

BrewingFan (251) - Texas, USA - JUN 18, 2010
Bottle at WOB, pours black with tan head. Mild aroma of coffee and chocolate. Med sweet, med bitterness, smooth almost velvety feel associated with the average carbonation level. Finish is a touch bitter, but otherwise clean, surpising that no alcohol makes its way through. Its an okay beer, I think very much overated.

Wow! this brew was great. Full-bodied but not too heavy. Tastes like a smooth chocolate coffee. You won’t even taste the alcohol

sstackho (249) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2008
12oz bottle purchased from Danforth and Broadview LCBO in Toronto. I just had a 500mL Schneider Eisbock before this, so forgive me if I am in love with the world or mistype. Pours black with a small, quickly receding white head. Initial, somewhat thin, aroma of coffee. First taste is nice and richly full, with more coffee on the palate. Taste remains strong throughout. Very nice.

norsedoc (248) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2007
Bottle. Tasted alongside Obsidian Stout, one of my favorite six-pack stouts. Pours oily black. Sharp malty aroma. Slick mouthfeel. More smooth than Obsidian. Long finish, not sweet, not bitter.

Cbuk1013 (247) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUN 17, 2013
A nice intro to stouts. Hints of roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate. A bit skunky but roasted malt still present. A little thin for a stout.

lukedarock (246) - Howell, Michigan, USA - JAN 14, 2014
Smelt a lot better than I thought it would and looked equally as good, taste was balanced with the sweet chocolate and malt but with a slightly bitter ending, a refreshing stout that I would enjoy at any time for a decent price!

Bottle. Pours black with a medium beige head. Smells is of dark chocolate, bitter coffee malts. Taste is pretty deep and complex, roasted malts, chocolate, and nice sweetness. Full body, nice palate of coffee and chocolate. Nice stout, easy to find too.
