I drank a bottle at the Flying Saucer, it was surprisingly good! Good thick stout with a bold taste.

Arcanor (71) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2013
Source : From Westmere Bevrage NY, 355ml can. Appearance : Pitch black with a nice brown head. Aroma : Caramel and oxyde Taste : Hard to say, it’s very strange nothing come out and nothing taste very good. Palate : Full body and lot of carbonation. Overall : Got two of them, I taste the second the following night and I still don’t get it.

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.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2007 Good Dark beer. Great after taste.The texture is not too heavy good to the palate. Reminds me of Scotch Ale.

The aroma forced the score to be so low. It smelled like a stale bottle left open overnight. The first gulp was bitter like a coffee flavour, then went down a fruity/chocolatey taste after that. Good beer, especially the last drink, but the aroma threw me off. Maybe my sense of smell was off at the time.

Roasted malty coffee aroma. Tastes like mocha java chips. Slightly bitter finish. Silky smooth and not too heavy. Difficult to have only one at a time. This must be the best beer in Sri Lanka.

Pours a very opaque black color, presents a good head but the head dicipated a bit quickly (perhaps due to the alcohol content). This one hides the alcohol well and has a good chololate and coffee flavor with other notes such as toffee, also has a good roasted character to it. This one just didn’t WOW me, sorta "been here done that" type of thing.

A vigorous aroma of chocolate, vanilla, cherry, coffee and roasted malt. Poured pitch black with a huge creamy, long lasting tan head. Left a lot of lacing. Flavor of Sweet Milk Chocolate, Sweet Cherry, light touch of vanilla, strong black coffee, bitter black chocolate,with a hint of smoke and roasted malt. Excellent flavor! Full body, a thick, creamy, yet chewy texture. A bit above average carbonation. A pleasant, short, sharp finish. A excellent stout! I served this in a pint at 45 degrees. This has it all in a stout. If you like them thick, sweet and yet bitter, black and rich this is the stout for you! I am very impressed with this stout and this definitely gets added to my favorite rotation. THe only problem I could see with this brew is that one is enough, but is that a problem? :)

12 oz bottle compliments of darn1207 who was cool enough to put one aside during this years St Pats acknowledgment. Ink-black pour with attractive 1/2 ovalteen head, settling in the time I’ve written this to pencil thin. Dave Frishberg’s ’Where you at?’ in the background as I take my first sip... Great nose before beautiful creamy mouthfeel. A bit too cold still, but initial taste impressive. Malty yet exquisitely balanced. Dry. Aftertaste trails a little metallic flat, but that’s just another excuse for another sip. As it warms, alcohol more apparent (i guess duh). Liking this beer. Track three: ’You say you care’ -- this guy swings his ass off. Picking up now sour cherry -- wasn’t expecting that. Really dry -- moreso than any other stout I can remember.
