Travlr (21638) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 13, 2008
Dark maroon with thin white head. Aroma of roasted malt and alcohol. Caramel and malt flavor with some hops. Good stuff, although maybe a bit lighter than it ought to be.

Dark color, dark brown generous head. Deep coffee aroma; roasted malt; yeast. Smooth, good balance of sweetness and bitterness; malt, roasted malt, coffee; a very light acidity (high carbonation, maybe). Final not enough interesting, some sweetness, not too long.
A pleasant sweet stout.

Koelschtrinker (17681) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 17, 2011
Für ein Stout ist der Antrunk eher mild, eine angenehme herb-süßlich Würzigkeit mit tiefgehender Malzigkeit stellt sich erst etwas später ein. Dieses Arome erreicht schnell seinen Intensitätshöhepunkt und verharrt dort einige Zeit. Etwas bananig süß werdend, tief malzig, dieses Arome wird mit der Zeit deutlich milder. Im Abgang leicht und angenehm schokoladig, wenig herb, das Malz wird wieder intensiver. Gelungenes Stout mit genügend Tiefgang und Ausgeglichenheit. 10/11/11/12/12/11

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2011 Bottled. Almost black, with a tan head. Weak aroma with coffee, burnt malt, hints of licorice and chocolate. A mellow flavor with chocolate, coffee and roasted notes. Full-bodied, with a dryish, bitter finish. This must definately be one of the best Asian beers available. Rating: 8-5-8-4-15-4. 060801

Bottle. A beautiful looking beer, more or less black in color and with a finger-thick, dense, light tan head. Roasted, licorice aroma with a touch of alcohol. Quite fruity too. The flavor too is really nice, sweet, with roasted malts, some dried fruits, a touch of warming alcohol and a hint of licorice. Full-bodied and smooth, really tasteful. A beer I love to repeat. 110827
