fonefan (38879) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2007
Bottle. Clear dark brown / black color with a average frothy good lacing fully lasting light brown head. Aroma is light to moderate malty, coffee / mocca, roasted, light chocolate. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft to flat. Pleasure to drink but it looks as if it will be with more flavor..

iammadeofjelly (194) - Liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2007
A pretty good stout beer. It poured dark dark brown with a brown head. It went down really easily, whether this is bad because it wasn’t the most flavoursome of stouts or good cos it made it a pleasure to drink, i cannot say.

ChainGangGuy (4531) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 7, 2007
Appearance: Pours out a russet-colored hue with a thin, dark tan head. Smell: Rather unexciting. This beer is very lacking in aroma, with only the faintest hints of roasted malts showing. Taste: Dull, lifeless flavors of chicory and chocolate, with only the smallest hint of roasted bitterness. Mouthfeel: Surprisingly thin-bodied for a stout with a sparkling carbonation that borders on being abrasive. Drinkability: Far, far too lacking in all its aspects. One of the most unappealing examples of a stout.

Bouteille, courtoisie de Jean Marc G. De couleur noire et opaque. Nez de malt rôti et légèrement terreux et aux notes fumées, de café, léger de chocolat au lait (notes lactiques), de chocolat noir et de houblon herbeux avec des notes fruitées (léger de cerises noires) de réglisse noire. Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture légèrement crémeuse (notes aqueuses). Goût légèrement fruité aux faibles notes sûres (cerises noires, traces de prunes) avec un léger goût lactique de chocolat au lait et des notes de réglisse noire lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût moyennement amer de malt rôti (notes terreuses) accompagné d’un léger goût de mélasse sucrée et de fumée (boisée) puis l’on assiste à une finale légèrement plus amère de café noir accompagné d’un léger goût de houblon herbeux et de chocolat noir. Post-goût long-moyen aux notes sèches, moyennement amer de rôti, de café et aux notes de chocolat noir et fruitées (moût de cerises noires).
