Oakes (13454) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2001
Almost black; Toasty aroma - slight coffee; palate has dry, husky dark malts....then the problems start showing up. There is too much carbonation, and the body gets thin. As it warms, cardboardy flavours come out. Clearly, this sample has spent too much time in the distribution chain. The flavours are pretty good (like a cappucino & a peanut doughnut), though, so a fresh bottle would be worth drinking. I have ignored the flaws as best as I could in my rating.

Koelschtrinker (12461) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - NOV 1, 2013
Mild röstiger Antrunk, wenig herb. Die aufkommende Süße passt weniger, schnell wird das Bier milder, monoton. Trinkbar. 10/8/7/6/5/6

argo0 (12039) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 6, 2003
Near black body with gray-brown head. Aroma is coffee, moderately sweet. Taste is sugared coffee, with cream even -- not as oversweetened as the Black Abbot (thank goodness), but still too sweet for my taste.

Tmoney99 (11826) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 21, 2006
Bottle. Poured dark brown with an average frothy brown head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate roasted toffee aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture. Medium roasted sweet flavor with a sweet finish of moderate duration.
