Pitch black with a beige head. Aroma is roasted malt with a bit of chocolate. Medium carbonation. Taste of chocolate and coffee with a bit of a sour aftertaste. Not bad.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2008 Attending to body this one is sure to be disappointing but if just forget about that and open yourself up to this one, it’s a wonderful experience. Besides the wimpy body evident in the lackluster head and watery, particulate feel, you have something more like a dense tea an honest stout. Obviously strong with exotic dark oxidized flavors A bit moldy.

espenra (860) - Kurland, NORWAY - NOV 28, 2008
33cl bottle from Barley Wine. It poured a dark black colour with a medium big beige creamy head that settled down slowly in the glass. The aroma smells of dark roasted malt, coffee and ammonia caramel. The aroma is bitter and a bit flat and tastes of roasted malts, coffee, caramel and hints of alcohol. It has a short aftertaste.

sandberglar (148) - Scottsdale, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Black as the night, with a brown head. Smells like cherries. Has a sweet malty taste, with a warm, bitter, alcohol tasting finish. Good stout, but nothing I’d go out of my way to get again.

garmonbozia (423) - Hattiesburg, Mississippi, USA - FEB 14, 2010
Poured very dark with tan head. Taste was very dry. It did have a funky yeast taste to it. Very toasty aftertaste. Nice and smooth finish

wedgie9 (1825) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Tasted from a can. Pours nearly black with a very thick and frothy light brown head. Nose is coffee, dark chocolate, very roasted malts, and light hops. On the palate, the flavor is fruitier, displaying prune, the chocolate is more of a milk chocolate than dark chocolate. The malts taste a little more like caramel than expected, and the hops add a nice dimension as well. On the palate, this beer is actually lighter than expected, due in large part to the heavy carbonation. The finish is not terribly long. Overall, this is a very drinkable stout.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 18, 2010
Bottle (in Australia). Whoa...chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate. It drank well, but it was a bit hard to get past all that chocolate, so lacked balance for me.

Kristall-König (2187) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - AUG 9, 2011
Schwerer süßlicher und dunkelmalziger Geruch. Im Beginn süßmalzig und getreidig. Caramellartige Mitte mit malzigem Hintergrund.Weich, toffeeartig und an einen Schokoladenkuchen erinnernd, klingt das Bier aus. Opulent und süß - trotzdem kein schlechtes Bräu.Test vom 13.9.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche

ComradeK (978) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - DEC 21, 2011
330ml bottle as Sinha Stout. Pours a deep and opaque black, with a small and rapidly vanishing head, which does not leave any lace behind. A sweet drinking chocolate aroma lurks behind mild coffee and a hint of dark rye bread, creating quite an enticing aroma. It is quite strongly-hopped for a stout, and these are evident up front, in the form of some mild citrus and spice flavours. They give way to a smooth and sweet treacle taste, which moves into a body of mild coffee and cocoa. Some slightly more bitter cocoa asserts itself in the finish. This is a pretty decent stout. It is not the most full-on stout out there, but it is a nice beer all the same.

maneliquor (2995) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 12, 2012
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours jet black with a small tan head that stays for the duration. Solid lacing left about. Rathher sweet nose to it which isn’t too bad. Light liquorice and vanilla essence show up which are then enveloped in charred malts and chocolate biscuit. A little straight forward in the taste. Dry, choc biscuit to start with a sharp vanilla essence like finish. Too sweet on the end which ruins any length it could have. Solid for a quaffer though
