Black color, small to medium brown head. Aroma of coffee, brown sugar, liqueur. Taste sweet coffee, roasted malt, earthy, a bit of alcohol hint. Smoky aftertaste. Very good strong stout.

Bottle in Moonstone Restaurant, Hove - 23/1/11. Browny/reddy nose. Quite sweet tasting and creamy/milky as well. A wine like feeling on the palate but still smooth.

I was expecting a more harsh alcohol tint considering the 8%, but this beer covers it very well. It is very smooth, and balanced for such a strongly brewed stout. Hints of cacoa and a nice but not overdone level of roasty flavor. Plus, this thing looks great in a mug! I like it!

This beer is awesome. Others have profiled it nicely, so Iíll just say that this is an extremely tasty stout that totally covers its high gravity. The only real complaint I have is that it feels a little thin for a stout. Well done.

ReV2 (162) - Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2013
A classic in the true sense, Iíve been looking for this beer for more years than I care to remember and found it at a knock down price at a place Iíd rather not frequent. Pours with a fizzy tan head, quickly diminishing to a flat & lifeless deep brown stout. Velvety mouthfeel, milk chocolate with a hint of vanilla & liquorice and a subtle bitter finish. Long lasting aftertaste and very appealing served cold or at room temperature. It may be worth noting that my samples were 7.5% & bottle conditioned.

Jan Primus (160) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 25, 2005
Poured black with a fuge, foamy head. Very smooth, almost a bit watery and light-medium in body for 8%, the taste is very pleasant, coffee and chocolate. A subdued stout, not a standout, but good.
