Dogbrick (10889) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 4, 2006
This brew is black with a thick and rocky tan head that fizzes away rather quickly. Thick patches of lacing. The aroma is big on roasted malt, with some semi-sweet chocolate in the background. Rich body with a tasty blend of mocha, malt and plum flavors. Frankly I am surprised they make them this good in Sri Lanka. The finish is dry and roasty, with a coffee aftertaste. Proof you can’t judge a book by the cover.

daknole (10801) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 22, 2008
Nice stout. Very black pour with a brown head. Aroma is super chocolatey and dark dried fruits as well. Flavor is full of chocolate and moderately sweet. Some molasses on the tongue too. A slight hint of bitterness if very nice.

Rune (10684) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2008
330ml bottle bought at GBBF and consumed at a hotel room in Earls Court. Opaque, and dark as the night. Huge, brownish bubbling head with satisfying duration, leaving nice laceworks on the glass. Woody, dark malts in aroma. Complex flavoured with initial spicy, roasted malt followed by sweet prunes and finishing with a dry bitter touch. Maybe a bit overpowering in the mouth (08.08.2008)

Sammy (10664) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2005
Nice head with bubbles in foam. Malty sweet, vanila, milk, good hops. Very drinkable and serviceable stout. This would be a standard beer for me if always available, which reflects that big stouts get higher ratings on complexity and thickness, but this is nice.

Pours pitch black with a light tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 25, 2005
Bottle...This beer rocks!... Very dark ale with a mid-sized, creamy, well-tanned head. Ink-blot lacing. Aroma and flavor of dried plum, molasses and chocolate. A touch of cola in there too. Full-bodied and silky smooth with moderate carbonation. Lengthy, chocolatey finish. Really nice, world class beer!
