OOKPIKABLE (143) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2014
Pours black with thick, bubbly brown head. Aroma of raisin, metal and red wine. Tastes of molasses, booze, raisin, coffee and chocolate. Long lingering aftertaste of booze and raisins.

rakkasan (142) - Bresso, ITALY - JAN 6, 2010
bottle - pours blackish-brown with a large frothy, light brown head. There is lots of caramel, coffee and soy sauce in the nose. The flavor is smoky, earthy and woody with a sweet soy-sauce undertone. Iím not a big fan of stouts but this isnít bad.

makromaniak (141) - Tilburg, NETHERLANDS - APR 2, 2013
A black pour with a brown head. Aroma is chocolate, malts and coffee. Taste is very sweet...liquorice, sugar, chocolate and some malts. Bit too sweet for me but nice.

Indulgence (141) - Ajo, Arizona, USA - AUG 18, 2008
Impressive brew: as advertised, strong aromas of malted milk chocolate shake with some dark fruits like raisin and prunes, some roasted coffee also, appearance is black in the middle with some browning on the edges, good solid body, flavor is outstanding and in balance, not too sweet and not too roasted, very wine like notes to the senses, creamy body and slight bittering finish, will definately add to my list of drink again beers.

From a bottle this beer pours a nice opaque brown with a creamy tan head that leaves some lacing on the glass. Caramel and bourbon with a touch of smokiness on the nose. Chocolate nuttiness with tones of fruity prune and a touch of bitter smokiness in the finish. Goes down nicely with well blended alcohol and lingering nice bitterness. This one will definitely sneek up on you with the 8% ABV and smoothness. A good stout with great character.

mannika (140) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 9, 2007
Pours a jet black with a quickly disappearing tan head. Weak grape aroma. Flavour is sweet and the high alcohol content gives a very warm, but not overpowering feeling. Aftertaste is a gentle sweetness that makes your mouth water. Overall a nice, warming, sweet beer, perfect for the winter.

Quiver (140) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - APR 1, 2008
I really didnít do this beer justice. I didnít have a glass and had to drink it from the bottle. But overall was it good, had a nice malt finish and nice thick body.

curepute (140) - New York, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Black with creamy tan head. Big toasted malt nose, coffee, dark chocolate, amazing. Very smooth on the palate (surprisingly after that gorgeous nose), coffee, creamy milk chocolate, medium burnt toast, a squeeze of lemon, champagne carbonation that fits in well. Finish towards a nice hop kick and mellows out again. Nice and dry, not too sweet, complex.

MrStitch (138) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2008
Excellent. Sweet yet strong aroma. Rich chocolate, caramel, coffee, and a bit of malt taste... absolutely one of the best stouts Iíve ever had. Second only to Guinness

Pours black with a thick tan head. Aroma is a sweet malt, grape, and coffee. The chocolate comes up front in the flavor also traces of malts, mocha, coffee, and raisen. Great beer, with a creamy palate.
