Bought this bottle in July 2011 @ Nikki’s Liquors in Providence, RI, forgotten about it until today going over my aged bottles in my basement. Tan head, some mild lace in a snifter. Medium to a nearly full body. The aroma is sweet and very roasted with notes of alcohol, wood, and dark chocolate. Flavor mirrors the nose with some liquor flavors. Some coffee bitterness and a dry finish. Overall, well-made stout. And nearly as good as the Imperial version from this brewery.

Pours pitch black color with small beige head. Aroma of mild vegetable notes, some chocolate, sourish ripe fruits, ash, english malts and some hints of coffee. Flavor of dark berries, mild chocolate, hints of coffee and some mild vegetables. Creamy smooth palate, fruity and malty finish.

MartinT (8024) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2012
My Bottom Line:
This vanilla-laden Sweet Stout possesses some roasted coffee bean angles to add depth to a prevalent candied fruitiness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam dwindles to a veil over the darkest brown.
-Malts also offer toasted edges.
-The prevalent fruitiness is also redolent of licorice.
-Sweet coffee reaches the finish, accompanied by light roasty bitterness.
-The creamy mouthfeel, its smooth richness and soft carbonation accentuate this Stout’s sweet heart.
-Those who like Cigar City’s propensity for dessert flavors would like this a lot.

Black pour with a medium tan head. Interesting aroma of roasted malt, coacoa and fruits. Very good flavor of roasted malt that feels a bit like coffee and fruits. There’s not much of a bitterness in the end. The body is medium with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. This is a very well-made stout.

(50 cl bottle from supermarket; BBD: May 15th 2015) Pours black with medium, creamy tan head. Decent retention and beautiful lace. Aroma is roasted malt with notes of dark fruit and a hint of dust. Creamy texture, medium body, soft carbonation and a roasted, slightly sweet finish. Flavour largely follows the nose with less dust and more dark fruit and roasted malt. Quite pleasant.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2006
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a very dark, opaque black with a vague, reddish hue and a dense, beige head leaving some laces. Lightly sweet yet ashy aroma. Quite full-bodied with sweetish, roasted notes - pehaps with a vaguely burned edge. Some bitterness in the finish. 151206

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2007
Bottled. Black with a rich and sticky beige foam. Black chocolate and currant-leaves in the aroma. Big but a bit flat flavour of roasted coffee, black chocolate and hay. Simplistic and flavourfull. Long finish of tar and black chocolate.

coldbrewky (1431) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - JUL 19, 2007
Courtesy of Maria! Gentle pour yeilds an oily translucent brown with minimal head that spreads to nil quickly. Pungent nose of caramel and chocolate malts. Medium body is sweet with licorice and above stated chocolate. hops paralell body and follow to a gentle crisp hop finish. Alcohol is not noticed. A nice rainy day basement work beer.
