A black stout which is brimming over with roast malt flavours, balanced with a complex hop blend. Really smooth with roasted aftertaste.

A nice dark stout with a tan , thin head.It poured well.Looks can be deceiving.The aroma of burntness and chocolate.There was no "pop" with the flavor.It looked great and smelt good, but the taste wasnít there.

deep. dark color, with crimson highlights, beneath a creamy cocoa-tan head. Aroma is gentle, yet still roasty, emitting warm notes of chocolate and coffee, rich, bittersweet, with espresso tinges, and fairly uplifting, I like it! Warm, rich, smooth satisfying mouthfeel. Just drips over the palate, lolls around the tongue, very silky smooth. Not as thick or full as some stouts, but thatís okay, sometimes. Thoroughly pleasing, with an additional toffeeish sweetness, that really brings a smile. I canít help but like this beer, and Iíd advise you to try it, at least. Doesnít rock any worlds, but damned if it doesnít taste good, and thatís all Iím caring about right about now.

Bottle. Black with beige head. Roasted, cappucino, liqourice, metallic, bitter-dry. Ok from a bottle - could imagine it being great from cask...

Drinking this and rating it simultaneously. Black with a light tan head, minimal lacing, nice aroma of roasted coffee, flavor is similar, light roasted coffee, hints of chocolate, some and a slight watery, coffee finish. Very nice and enjoyable beer.

badgerben (4597) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 9, 2004
Pours a nice, dark black color with a medium head that wears down to a thin lace. Aroma of whisky... possibly Lagavulin. The taste is more whisky and heavily roasted malts. A little tinge of sour as well. Very nice; I would definitely buy this again.

A very dark beer with lots of great taste. Low alcohol content however it has a great taste. Would buy again.

WISEGUY572 (1374) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2004
Wow ó a 4% stout. A session stout. Surprisingly dark and opaque for a session beer ... or surprisingly thin for a stout. Surprisingly complex for a session beer, with bitter coffee and malt and maybe, just maybe a bit of smoke, or surprisingly simple for a stout. Donít love it ... not enough there to love ... but a very, very good easy drinking session beer.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - AUG 13, 2004
Not very complex but elegant. Dark, almost black colour, thin brown head, black coffee in aroma, good roasty and chocolate notes in the palate. An OK session dry stout.

Black with small beige coloured head, roasty, burnt flavours detected. However it was a bit on the watery side. Overall a nice beer, but not the best of its type.
