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 didnít 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 (4171) - 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 (4070) - 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.

Draft at the bridge. Pours black with a khaki head. A bit of chocolate on the nose. roasts are slightly bigger on the tongue but still feel subdued. Finishes clean. Itís decent but not good.

Backlog rating. Bottle at CBC Clerkenwell, Gunnar tasting. Thanks to Chris for this one. It pours a dark brown color with a medium beige head. Aroma is cocoa powder, burnt wood, dried berries. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter, with notes of licorice root, toffee, espresso and dark chocolate. Medium bodied with oily texture and soft carbonation. Overall, I liked this quite a lot
