rlgk (9495) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - JAN 19, 2004
Black, thin but lasting brown head. Has a very weak malty aroma. Flavor is thin, and not as rich as most other stouts. Quite a dissappointment.

rgrep (156) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 16, 2004
Bottle conditioned with visible sediment. Lively brown head that turns creamy after the pour. Toasted malt aroma with obvious coffee notes. Medium, creamy mouthfeel that finishes quickly. Not particular bitter in the finish but slightly salty.

motelpogo (6131) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 12, 2004
had the two main characteristics of oysters - saltiness and a mucous texture. still was alright, not too sweet but for the vaguest hint of caramel

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - DEC 5, 2003
Looks like a stout, smells like one too, only a bit muted. The flavour is the same, and even though it doesn't have to be high in alcohol this is a general hallmark of a very good stout. This is thin and not particularly stout like. If it had been described as a dark ale or schwarzbier I would not argue. The overall impression is that this is simply a dark beer that is not offensive.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2003
Nice stout: Roasted, sweet and fairly smooth. Hints of coffee and chocolate, maybe even some dark fruits (plums?). Lightly bitter finish with a touch of dryness, but certainly less so than "usually".

Hansen (6223) - Assentoft, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2003
Fine, dark color. Weak head. Roasted aroma and flavor. Palate a little thin for a stout.

Ungstrup (28463) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2003 A black beer with a beutiful brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of smoke and (chocolate) bitterness. The flavor is slightly smoked and malty and it ends on a great bitterness. A really good beer.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2003
Black with brown head. Little roasted, little bitter. Pleasent but not much going on. Is this bottom-fermented!?!
