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.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2006 Pours black with a creamy tan head. Lasting, some lacing. Aroma is Chocolate, molases, and some alcohol. Flavor is sweet, molases, some chocolate, but not much bitterness. Texture is smooth, soft carbonation, alcohol is well hidden.

625 oz bottle from Peculier Pub, NYC. Pours a deep black with a tan head. Aroma is slight chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is the same, but to me the alcohol was too noticeable and took away from the overall experience. Also a tad too thin for a stout, which needs to be a meal and an event in and of itself.

ekstedt (5402) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2007
Bottle (33 cl) from Systembolaget. Black with a red hued edge and a large creamy beige head. Heavy roasted, with heavy salty baconish barbecue smokey notes. Heavy bodied with smooth mouthfeel and quite dry. Highly overrated i.m.o.

Dark brown color tan head. Roasted coffee, caramel and powdered chocolate aroma. Similar taste with the slightest note of milk. Alcohol is well hidden and doesn’t make an appearance until the finish which is also mildly bitter.

kringlan (20) - Falun, SWEDEN - JAN 12, 2008
Black with a small, creamy, mostly diminishing light brown head. No lacing. The palate is creamy with a pretty thin body and soft carbonation. Aroma is heavy with malty molasses, raisins, bread, banana and vanilla. The flavour is salty with strong hints of sweet butterscotch toffee and chocolate and with subtle hints of cherry and licorice. The finish is bitter and fruity. It was ok but in no way stunning.

Strykzone (4911) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 24, 2008
Picked this up to add a country but found it to be a very drinkable. Aroma was somewhat unpleasant and lacking of the more classic stouts. Flavor was much nicer than the aroma and it looked great. Perhaps a bit watery. An average stout at best.

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.
