3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Finely brewed stout. The palate was fairly complex with interesting flavours that I have never witnessed in a beer before. I coudln’t even tell what most of them were. Nose was coffee and nuts. Flavour was of caramel, chocolate, coffee and some sort of spice that I can’t quite put my finger on. Not my favourite to drink. The flavour really overwhelms me at times, but I would drink this again.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Highly skeptical of beer from a third world shit hole, I was pleasantly surprised. Pours black/brown with big milk chocolate head. Aroma sweet but slightly sour, in a good way. Some plum flavors with some roasted flavors a hint of bitter chocolate and some toffee. Very nice body, full and creamy. nice amount of carbonation and it goes down nice and smooth, just like a good stout should. Very drinkable.

Not a bad stout, a bit surprising, since it comes from a non-typical location of such a beer. A bit thin, and uncomplicated in taste, but still a good effort.

This looks absolutely beautiful. Pitch black body, with a foamy toffee coloured head, which cleared up to leave lacing of the same colour. Nice espresso and malt aroma The flavour packs a punch of coffee, chocolate, and perhaps licorice. The finish is long and warming. A great beer.

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.

Was greatly disappointed by this beer. Not a very good stout in my opinion, and I like stouts. Not even close to a Guinness, or a Murphy’s.

From bottle. Part of February Dayton Beer Tasting event. Poured black with dark tan head. Aromas of coffee and chocolate followed by similar tastes. Much better than expected. Great value.

Sampled @ Helsinki Beer Festival 2004
Black, pretty thick brown head. A bit sweet nose with notes of fruits. Full body. Roasted flavor with notes of coffee, fruits and chocolate. Was my last rate at evening so sense of taste was allready gone.
