reebtogi (4956) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 19, 2013
330ml bottle pours black in color with a 2 finger light brown head that has decent retention and settles to reveal some decent lacing as well. Aroma is roasted grains and chocolate and hints of coffee. Taste is a roasted grain and coffee bitterness with a dark chocolate malty sweetness. Medium bodied with some light carbonation. A nicely done dry stout with a good balance and surprisingly good.

11.2oz bottle shared by Ed. Ed said he had to blow Santa just to get him to leave this, Santa is his cat..meOWWWWW. Well since I didn’t blow any cats I can rate this with a clear conscience. Poured a medium density pitch black with a smaller begie foamy head. Aroma of sweet dark chocolate, wet burnt toast, soy sauce, dark alcohol dipped cherries, sweet flaovred tobacco. Medium body with lighter carbonation and a quicker fading aftertaste. Flavor is sweet with some dark fruit skins and bad chocolate, burnt malts, burnt toast. a touch of milk also. Solid beer

maxwelldeux (4182) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Bottle. Pours a near-black color with a smallish light brown head on there. Nose is dry and roasty, with some sour black licorice notes coming through for me. Taste has a hint of chocolate to it, and is sweeter than I would have expected given its style. Nice roasty finish, too.

zvikar (4086) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - JUL 31, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2009 From bottle 33cl, pours total dark quite oily for a stout, has a medium chocolate head that lives a nice lacing, an excellent complex aroma of chocolate, nuts, plums, liquirice and some roasted malt tones, dry on the tongue starts with english smoked flavors, accompanied by dark chocolate, espresso, and finishes bitter with a long bitter sweet aftertaste, texture is medium to full. An impressive stout.
