UPDATED: SEP 2, 2014 This is a dayum good beer. Found it at the Foodery 324 S 10th St Philadelphia ca. 2004. It is exceptional and unsuspecting. The bottle modestly designed in contrast to the taste. It tastes well but does not smell all that much like a stout. It has a very acidic aroma yet is tender on the pallet. The tannins are subtle yet the rasin sweetness lingers well past the lips. Unique. Very sweet.

Bottle pours black, black, hearty tan head that lasts, sweet molasses aroma, rich roasted coffee flavor, smooth nice carbonation, some alcohol on the finish.

Draft. Dark black, off-white head. Sweet smell with a hint of roast. Thick and good. Would drink again.

330ml bottle. Pours very dark with a nice brown head and good lacing on the glass. Aromas of bitter chocolate, roasty coffee, malt and some caramel. Sweet taste with much the same flavour as the aroma. Medium body but does have a bit of a watery feel to it. My first foreign stout and it was a good one.

Slightly sweet and fruity aroma with some straw like notes as well as some alcohol and of course roasted grains. Large light brown head with good to excellent lacing, but unfortunately the head diminishes rather quickly. Slightly sweet flavour with moderate bitterness which balances out to light bitterness for an average length finish. Full body with a creamy texture.

330 ml bottle, at home @10°C Pitch black colour. Large and thick brown head. Excellent aroma of various types of wood, chocolate and tobacco. Full and rich flavour with roastiness , hops and sweetness are perfectly and smoothly balanced. Really, really excellent beer. Very recommendable!

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

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.

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.
