Warning! Early amateur rating! Smokey, dry and somewhat bitter. Drinkable but a dissapointing drink immediately following the Jamaican Lion Head Stout.

Bottle at home ... Solid Black ... smokey roast malt ... fruity cherry little liquorish ... lots of roast malt ... quite sweet ... little spirit but doesnt show its strength... good balance.

MiP (13046) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2005
Bottle. Black and thick, big light brown head (hm, that came out a bit dodgy). Full, sweet flavour, some coffee. Salty liquorice aftertaste. Thick syrupy mouthfeel.

Bottle at Home - shared with Mette - before going to a "Caviar & Champagne" dinnerarrangement. Black - light brown head. Roasted, coffee, high chokolate, sweetness, light hoppy, a bit of vegetable in the aroma. Nice but not fantastic...

yngwie (12641) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2006
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

TBone (11900) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 4, 2004
Bottled (Helsinki Beer Festival 2004)
Black opaque. Creamy coffee brown head with bubbles. Caramel, roasted malt aroma. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel, like drinking velvet. Slightly alcoholic aftertaste, otherwise ABV is not noticed.

Oakes (11786) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 18, 2000
dense, rocky head. Sweet, fruity nose. Complex, malty - vanilla and coffee; creamy palate; light notes of raisins and plums. Exquisite.

A very dark stout with a medium head. Good tasting stout with chocolate and coffee undertones.
